From the offset, Money Wheel lures you into thinking this is going to be an album oh so similar to the first one, About What You Know. Followed by What your Boyfriend Said, the tempo keeps upbeat, with typical LMT DNA running right through it.
It's not until track 3 that things slow down, and this goes from being a good album, to a very good album. "She Looks Like Audrey Hepburn" is a much slower song by the band, but is done magnificently. The typical LMT continues afterwards with Shot at Politics & Hey Little Sweetie.
Things slow down again with Joined by an iPod, which has gained many fans already after they made it a free download on MySpace.
Unfortunately, what prevents this from being a 5 star album is just 3 songs, and 2 of them are numbers 7 & 8. Face on a Wall & A Little Heart. Good songs, but not quite up to the standards of the rest of the album.
Time for Anything picks the pace back up however, and the last 2 songs are quickly forgotten, before 2 of the finest tracks on the album. Back of the Pub Quiz, and London Skies, very different, but equally as effective.
The final criticism is the last track, Shoulder to Sigh on, it's like nothing LMT have done before and unfortunately is something they should perhaps not do again. A totally different sound, and it's a shame it's the last song you have to hear on the CD, when you will be begging for a real anthem of an album closer.
'Nothing Worth Having Comes Easy', the lads' second album, continues the same steady stream of catchy hooks and sing-a-long choruses that made their first one, About What You Know, an instant favourite of mine. The witty and well-observed lyrics are still here in abundance, but there are a few surprises on board. The slow love song 'Joined by an iPod' is really quite beautiful, and 'Audrey Hepburn', another slower track provides another highlight.
As soon as you give this album a spin, you will hear immediately that Little Man Tate did sound very similar to fellow Sheffield indie band the Arctic Monkeys, but after a few repeated listens, you'll see that these lads had their own style, often very much in the flavour of Britpop, and definitely had their own personality. Best tracks: 'What Your Boyfriend Said', 'Audrey Hepburn', the very Fratellis-ique 'Hey Little Sweetie' , 'Back of the Pub Quiz' , 'Joined by an iPod', and the infectious opener 'Money Wheel'. The latter of which sounds uncannily like a track by The Wonder Stuff.
This 2008 album, following the previous year's About What You Know, is another fine collection of songs, full of LMT's trademark mix of guitar hooks and catchy choruses, and all jointly composed by band singer/guitarist Jon Windle and guitarist Edward 'Maz' Marriott. Although, for me, whilst not being quite as strong a song collection as the debut album, there is hardly a duff song here and NWHCE still provides many moments of intoxicatingly vibrant listening. Windle is on his favourite subject of girls and lost love on the infectious pop of What Your Boyfriend Said, A Little Heart, Time For Anything and The Last Hurrah, and, similarly, on the cross-over of music and romance on the sublime melody of Joined By An ipod. The ballad-like Shoulder To Sigh On finds him at his most reflective, whilst album opener Money Wheel bemoans a band's treadmill-like existence.
My favourite songs here, though, are the marvellously infectious Shot At Politics, wherein our hero bemoans his lesser station in life, and the take on female stardom in She Looked Like Audrey Hepburn, with its great lyric, 'He thought she was looking deep into his eyes, right into his very soul, but she was just checking her hair in the reflection of his sunglasses'.

All the songs are catchy and the lyrics are great. Can listen to this again and again.
Especially love 'Hey Little Sweetie'
