Biography

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

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Razorlight's second album was great! 3 July 2013
By ReviewBlog51 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars what happened after this? 6 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
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?

4.0 out of 5 stars More hits than I remember 19 April 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I bought this as I am learning "America" on my guitar.

Having given the album a good listen I am surprised at how many of the other songs I recognized.

A nice, quirky rock/pop crossover album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Razorlight 3 July 2006
By Matthew
Format:Audio CD
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.
