Having been stunned by how good they were when I watched them on Later with Jools Holland, I've been buying all their releases to date on vinyl and seen them live once....and going to see them again this week. So this will be a somewhat biased review - this is excellent, noisy blues rock played by Irish teens (think a couple of them are 17 and the other two are 16!) who show themselves both adept at covers and producing their own material (Blue Collar Jane is excellent in particular).

The detractors will say it doesn't push the musical boundaries like some bands (R'n'B by numbers i saw one reviewer say in a snide way) but ask yourself what they were doing at 16 & 17! This has energy, passion and great musicianship for such a young group. Go see them live as they are even more incendiary......

Support a young band learning their craft......buy this album!

These guys are fantastic, I bought their EP and had to buy the Album as a result. Full on, in your face rock and roll. Never mind their ages they produce great music.
Cant wait for the next one. Listen to it, buy it and enjoy.

Kicking off with a shriek of feedback that will bring tears of joy to the eyes of all J&M Chain fans, this is an absolute stormer of an album. Great tracks, an excellent balance of originals and r'n'b standards, screaming guitars, top drawer harp-playing, ferocious energy and vocals straight out of a Nuggets-era cityscape, what's not to love about The Strypes? But please don't be misled into thinking that all you are getting is a 21st century retread of the mid-60s Rolling Stones, which seems to be the core message of most reviews I've read. Of course there are echoes of the early Stones. But in my opinion, the Strypes are closer in spirit and in style to both the Pretty Things and Them. However these are no mere copyists. The Strypes have a rawness, a ferocity and an attack that is entirely their own. Something that I hope will gladden the heart of anyone who prefers perspiration to polish, sweat to sophistication and balls to blandness.

Amazingly this most urban-sounding band hails, not from the mean streets of some industrial wasteland, or some soul-destroying tower-block, but from the beautiful rural setting of Co. Cavan in Ireland. But you'd never guess that from the punky, venomous r'n'b that will assault your senses when you pop this into your music player of choice. And if that is the kind of music that appeals to you I promise that you won't be disappointed in this absolutely excellent offering.

Trust me!

A lot of potential with these guys.
I particularly liked the oldies 'I can tell' and 'can't judge a book etc'.
Angel Eyes was very good too.
I'll look out for the follow up album.

Saw the Strypes live a few months ago in London. I think they're a better live band than they sound on recording, especially the vocals. But this is still really fun and refreshingly energetic - perhaps because they're so young, these guys seem to love making music. Particular highlights include Blue Collar Jane, What a Shame, Can't Judge a Book By the Cover, Hometown Girls and (something quite different, and a lot slower) Angel Eyes

This review is for the standard single CD, there is also a deluxe version available: Snapshot

The Strypes' debut album 'Snapshot' is a youthful and successful take on 1960s R&B, I was very impressed. The songs are bursting with energy, and apart from four covers (including an impressive revival of 'You Can't Judge a Book by the Cover'), the remaining eight are all self penned songs. The guys, who have yet to even reach eighteen, have a lot talent and hopefully their excellent, old-fashioned style of music will prove popular with the younger generation.

It's nice to see young real musicians making their way, and competing against manufactured pop artists from shows like 'The X Factor'. I think that there is a lot of good music in the charts at the moment, and hopefully The Strypes will go onto make it big, on the evidence of this impressive debut album, they deserve it.

Really good debut album from these young Irish guys. Some tracks sound like young Dr Feelgood in my opinion which is not a bad thing.

This is an excellent and exciting young band. If you like Dr Feelgood especially, then you will love it. Also for fans of The Yardbirds and pumpimg R&B.

One fault however...43 seconds into track 6 "I Can Tell" on the word "The" there is a "tsk" noise or glitch.
I bought the Deluxe version of the CD and have since listened to the mp3 version and it is the same there.
Could anyone please confirm whether it is the same on the standard CD and other versions? Thank you.

Dropped one star only because of this and not for the music. Surely someone should listen to this before releasing it. Yes it is minor, but it shouldn't be there.
