Sometimes you need to get away from it all, even when your life succeeds beyond your wildest dreams. Just ask Razorlight songwriter, lead singer and guitarist Johnny Borrell, who secreted away on an island off Scotland to write the British band’s third CD, the melodic, musically adventurous “Slipway Fires.”

Product Description

RAZORLIGHT Razorlight (2006 UK 10-track CD album including the singles In The Morning America Before I Fall To Pieces Cant Stop This Feeling Ive Got & Hold On plus Kirbys House [as featured on the album Warchild: Help - A DayIn The LifeOf] picture booklet)

Amazon.co.uk

Razorlight's eponymous sophomore release doesn't so much reinvent the freewheeling sensibilities of their '04 debut Up All Night as hone them into a more willfully focused pop whole, a mindset that immediately evinces itself on the inviting, Boomtown Rats-meets-INXS-flavored opener "In the Morning." The growing confidence of songwriter/vocalist Johnny Borrell is almost palpable as he expands the band's horizons to include the '50s-rooted influences of "Before I Fall to Pieces" and the Dion-esque "Who Needs Love," the Chrissie Hynde-bred tension of "Hold On" and the sonic fervor of early U2 on "Pop Song 2006." Gratifyingly, that tack has also pushed the rest of the band - especially guitarist Bjorn Agren - towards honing their chops in service of a tighter, yet still playful sound. It may be too easy for seasoned ears to deconstruct the influences here, but by the time this taut, economic collection closes on the high note of the melodramatic "Los Angeles Waltz" even the cynics should be won over. --Jerry McCulley

Looking through my hundreds of CDs recently, I came across Razorlight's self entitled 2006 second album. I admit that I never bought their first album released two years previously, or their third which came out in 2008.

However, I did love this album at the time, I played it again after all these years, and it still holds up as a brilliant record. So much so, I am going to get the other two, if they are of the same quality, all I can say is - when are we going to get a forth?

Songs that are heavily on repeat for me at the moment include 'America' (a beautiful track that instantly made me feel nostalgic), 'I Can't Stop This Feeling I've Got' (which can be summed up in one word: quality!), 'Back To The Start' (great intro!) and 'Los Angeles Waltz' (another beautiful song!).

This album was solid and mature, despite the surprising number of one star reviews, and spawned five hit singles. If you haven't heard this in a while, time to dig it out and enjoy. If you didn't buy it the first time around, or haven't heard much by the band - you can now buy a copy at a much cheaper price.

Highly recommended!

Razorlight were a band I'd only ever heard on radio or TV and never bought any of their stuff before and to be honest I only got this belatedly because I wanted to learn 'In the morning' to play in the band I'm with but I have found a good,solid album with catchy pop/rock songs(I refuse to use the lazy 'Indie' description).For what its worth opener 'In the morning' is the best all round track here but check out the other singles 'America','Before I fall to pieces' if you haven't already plus some of the LP tracks could have been hits as well. The question is what happened to Razorlight after this album?

I heard quite a few tracks of this album from Hyde Park Calling festival, and the truth is razorlight havent lost their music talent and are holding up the standards of their amazing first album with catchy original tunes that were given massive praise by everyone at hyde park proving that this band (if the public can help it) should be around for a long long time, as they are continuing to be one of the best bands around at the moment. Pure brilliance.

Jonny Borrel's assertion that "if Dylan was making the chips, he was drinking the champagne" in reference to his lyricism was one of the most annoying and obnoxious comments ever made despite the fact it was tongue in cheek, it really is delusional to put yourself above the greatest lyricist of all time when your first album contained the lines "I know a girl with a golden touch/she's got enough she's got too much" and "Hey girl, get on the dance floor/ And rip it up, yeah/That's what it's there for".

However Razorlight themselves are not just Jonny Borrel and their debut album came with enough good hooks and summer hit singles to make them hard to dislike the very antithesis to Borrel's loud mouth, which has made him very easy to dislike. The second album kicks off with `In the morning' which is probably the best song on the album. it sounds like T-rex doing a David Bowie cover and has a very catchy chorus and refrain. The next song `Who Needs love' is also very easy on the ear, with a piano hook and accessible, if not Dylanesque lyrics.

The main problems with their sophomore effort kick in with America, which is a flawed, pompous and overly ambitious song destined to be everywhere soon. The song seems steeped in Borrel's ambitions to break America and whilst the would be anthem features a catchy sing a long chorus, it's lyrically unappealing and cheesy to toxic levels.

Pop song 2006 is even more frightening as it seems Jonny Borrel's admittedly entertaining performance and live 8 seems to have gone to his head. The song aims to capture the spirit of 2006. Although I wasn't aware there was one but if there was, this clearly isn't it.

Too short.

Too little passion and pace.

Too little attention to track order.

Most importantly too few good songs.

After the delight of Up All Night, that is in my opinion the closest to a perfect album there is, this was a big disappointment..... says a very big Razorlight fan.

First listen made me want to take it back to the shop, however i've persisted and thanks to three things they get half marks (3 is too much, 2 too little).

1. It really does grow - i'll conceed the 5 star reviewers that.

2. A couple of stand out songs (Before I fall to Pieces springs to mind).

3. Live it sounds better.

Downsides include the clearly grease musical inspired Who Needs Love (can't disagree that Borrell's thirteen yeard old nephew wrote that!) and the awful version of Kirby's House they've chosen to include here. You can also tell that they only had 30 minutes to choose the track order as it doesn't together well at all in the way that Up All Night did.

So in summary if you're looking for a repeat of Up All Night look elsewhere but give it a chance and it will grow. I wouldn't give it number one spot in my CD pile.... that still belongs to Up All Night.
