5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC 25 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Great 2nd album, been looking forward to it for so long. They've experimented a little bit, but still keeping some elements of Torches, which I love. Not 1 bad song on the album, and it really is a great mix, not disappointed at all. Saw them live yesterday at Troxy in London, and they were amazing. Love this band, and love this album! Highly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Intriguing and Eclectic Collection 25 Mar 2014
By Adam Finn TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Supermodel is the second studio album from the indie-pop-rock crossover band Foster The People.

The new album follows the success of their 2011 début Torches. Opinions aside for the moment, those looking for a second 'Torches' will be left wanting. Not to say that this record doesn't have its unashamedly pop moments ('Coming of Age', 'Are You What You Want to Be') but 'Supermodel' take a significant detour towards a more eclectic sound.

And no doubt this was fully intentional. Head man Mark Foster intended this record to be more 'gritty' and that it certainly is having been produced on the road during their 2012 tour in a portable studio. The record dips into various rock influences intended to extend as far back 'the kinks' and 'the clash' but actually stomping on more recent ground i.e. Thom Yorke ('Goats in Trees') and The Killers ('The Truth'). In fact often its very easy to forget what band you are listening to.

Lyrically the album deals with the (clichéd) "ugly side of capitalism". Infused into the music after the music was created (i.e. in a two stage process) the words often sit uncomfortably with the sound. But where the lyrics fail the music certainly excels. I bet you never expected Foster The People to produce a truly great track like 'Goats in Trees'.

The most exciting thing about this album is that the after scratching away the pop façade created by 'Torches', Mark Foster et al. have exposed a fascinating underbelly that shows intermittent signs of brilliance. This is not a 5* album but there are many outros and a few singular tracks that hint at a promising future.

Had high expectations to meet after the flawless debut album 'Torches' and as a second album it couldn't have been better!

4.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but not as good as Torches 2 April 2014
By Alf
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have found to like many songs on this album such as 'Best Friend', 'Coming of Age' and 'Are You What You Want to Be?'. I have enjoyed the album - yes, but I feel like it is not quite as good as Torches. I feel like some of the tracks are wasted such as "The Angelic Welcome of Mr. Jones" which I feel like what is the point of evening having it on, yet of course others may disagree yet this is my own opinion.

Don't get me wrong, this is a very good album, but for me, not quite as good as their first one, Torches.

3.0 out of 5 stars A candle no torche! 31 Mar 2014
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
The album is good but a distant second to torches, which is probably the best mp3 at £4.99 I've ever bought.

My favourite tracks are:
Coming of age
Nevermind
Best friend
A beginner's guide to destroying the moon.
