LOSTPROPHETS The Betrayed (2010 UK 11-track CD album - Three years in the making and with the band opting to handle production and recording duties themselves with bassist Stuart Richardson at the helm The Betrayed sees Lostprophets returnedto a rawer yet still commercial sound. Includes the singles Its Not The End Of The World... and Where We Belong)
Someone up there likes Lostprophets. What other act, in this blighted age, would be able to get away with shipping out to LA, splashing out half a million dollars on their fourth album, and then scrapping it and starting again? Well, Guns N’Roses, perhaps, but that’s the point: this is a band acting like members of rock’s A-list.
Luckily, The Betrayed, for the most part, has the good grace to sound like it. Their fourth album sounds big – polished, even – and helpfully, that’s a quality that suits them rather well. Of all the acts to rise out of the UK’s nu-metal and post-hardcore scenes last decade, it was Lostprophets who boasted the firmest mainstream sensibilities, blending impressive riffs with a melodic edge inspired by 80s new romantic pop. Uncool? Probably – teenage girls like them, which is obviously the kiss of death if you want to be a credible rock band. But it did, at least, feel like Lostprophets’ passions were utterly genuine.
They are at their best, certainly, when they remember to include the heavy. Dstryr / Dstryr is brutal funk-metal with shades of Rage Against the Machine, frontman Ian Watkins shrieking silly apocalyptic doggerel like a Manga superhero – “Religion needs a new employer / I’ve got the rope you need to hang your Jesus even higher!” – and Next Stop Atro City is stop-start screamo in the vein of 90s Swedish punk troupe Refused.
Elsewhere, it’s more of a mixed bag. Forays into lighter, ska-tinged realms are a surprising success – For He’s a Jolly Good Felon blends choppy guitar, terrace sing-alongs and even a spot of Wurlitzer with some style. Somewhat testier is Where We Belong, a deliberately grand tear-jerker that reaches for the epic but strays a little too far into schmaltz.
Of course, that’s an occupational hazard for Lostprophets, but The Betrayed is not an underachieving record. It sweats hunger and ambition, and while it’s not flawless, it’s a success on their own, aggressively populist terms: 11 songs of big riffs and earworm choruses that reach over the moshpit to the stands beyond. --Louis Pattison

A good album by lostprophets. Would be 5 stars apart from let down songs, destyr and darkest blue. Still a great album just skip them songs.Published on 28 Aug. 2013 by Tomz

A good album, but not one of their best. Dstryr is definitely a track I would love to hear them play live as it's very energetic (not yet heard, sadly). Read morePublished on 30 July 2012 by Mr. J. Daly

As a HUGE Lostprophets fan it is disappointing to make a poor review for the lovely Welsh (AMERICANISED) boys and their album The Betrayed

This isnt a a terrible album, it just isnt a very good one. The songs are just far to bland and boring. Read morePublished on 5 April 2011 by Mr. P. D. Horner
