It's been a phenomenal year for Cowbridge's teenage four piece, The Automatic. Having wowed fans with a series of riotous gigs (including tours with Hard-Fi and The Ordinary Boys), they've emerged as one of the most exciting live acts around. Recently completing the NME tour, the general feeling is that theyve come out on top of the 4 band bill! The band's current single "Monster" is rapidly turning into an anthem and is another example of the band's raucous disco-punk, boasting a chorus that's destines to be sung everywhere from playgrounds to football terraces.
You can hear the restless sound of youth as you listen to The Automatic's debut album, Not Accepted Anywhere. Their sharp guitar lines, analogue synths and simple shoutalong choruses combine wonderfully to produce three minute pop jewels.
Like all the best teenagers The Automatic are clearly not happy with the world they find around them. Opening song "That's What She Said" lays into drones who spend unhappy lives in the rat race, dreaming of weekends at punk gigs, while "You Shout You Shout" lambasts "so much trash on the radio," which keeps the zombies "dancing in the routine way". Killer single "Monster" takes a pot-shot at lagered-up townies in Ben Sherman shirts.
They might find it hard to believe, but it looks likely that this young Welsh band will find their album accepted everywhere. --Tom Smith

The emerging theme from various other reviews is that the songs possess a similarity as the album goes on, which is something I have to agree with. Many of the songs are difficult to identify from each other.
However having just seen the band live and finding that they were a brilliant live band I feel that they have great potential for the future if incorporation of more variation is included on future releases.
Despite the songs sounding rather similar in general, I would still say get the album if you like Monster, Raoul and Recover and if possible, see them live!
wasn't too impressed with the album, maybe i set my hopes too high... obviously there are some great tracks on there, but the guy with the screechy voice is the same through out the album, and it gets quite irritating...
if a fan, get it...if just investigating new bands, download a few tracks first to see if you like them...
Opening track 'That's what she said' is a dance-punk call to arms while 'Recover' reveals a thrilling glimpse of The Automatic's hardcore background. The stand out track for me is 'By my side' which sounds a bit like Refused doing the Doctor Who theme - this is actually a very good thing! Oh, and there's this song called 'Monster' but you might have heard that already.
The singles (Recover, Raoul, Monster) are top notch bits of hi energy pop and make for a strong start to the album. There aren't any real diversions from this theme as you go through, so it wears a little thin by the end but not enough to grate. The album sleeve has a nice little graphic strip too.
They need to think up a plan B for the second album but this will do nicely for the first. Recommended.
All I can see is...get your butts over the hill, down the road and into a shop quickly to buy this as its selling fast!!!!
Trust me when i say you won't be able to sit still listening to this album, you'll probably be running around the room diving off furniture. So who will enjoy this music? It's probably for the younger generation perhaps 15-25. If you like bands like the subways, fall out boy, panic at the disco, even blink 182 then the chances are you will like the automatic even better. On track 11 'By my side', singer Rob asks 'Is this the end of the world?'. My reply would be definitely not with you guys around the fun is just about to begin.

Really enjoying the album. Good words, sung well with plenty of soul. Wales is obviously a bit downtrodden if Not Accepted Anywhere is anything to go by. Read morePublished on 1 Nov. 2013 by Dan Smith
I would give as many stars as Amazon would allow for this album.....a hundred if available. I cannot praise it highly enough. It hurts to see it at bargain basement prices. Read morePublished on 20 Mar. 2013 by M. Clayton
Completly angular brit pop. Vocals are ace, I love Penny and his yelping. the kind of dancing you do to this is ilegal in many countries. Read morePublished on 4 Aug. 2010 by Ms. Ir Bird
I like Monster, its a good record. However, the album is full of quite lame tracks and I must confess to getting fed up with the bloke who has a very high pitched voice chipping in... Read morePublished on 10 Oct. 2007 by Tangerine
