There is always going to be some comparisons with the Killers for this band, what with those digs from Brandon Flowers about them stealing the Killers ideas, sound or something. The fact is, the first Killers album had four brilliant songs at the beginning and the rest was a bit flat. The Bravery had a really good, and consistently good, album. It was better that the Killers' effort (even if it did not have anything as good as Somebody Told Me & Mr. Brightside). If I was Flowers, I would have been worried too.

And now the second album. For some reason, the Killers second has sold bucket loads despite being poor: overblown, derivative (nothing wrong with that, but it depends on your influences), patchy. The Bravery's second has sneaked out. Interest seems to have waned completely. They never did get good press, but it doesn't seem to have affected them. This album is really good.

From the start with a nice intro, guitars and then the keyboards subtly in the background, it sounded good. And it continues. Once again it is consistently good. They may have moved on a bit, but it is still clearly a relative of the first album.

Highlights: This is not the end, the Ocean, Time won't let me go.

The bravery's second album is upon us already and I'm very happy. Firstly let all comparsions with The killers die now (I like the killers also), they are losely connected at most. Similiar types of music on their first albums but nothing else really.

Anyway, onto the Sun and the Moon which frankly is every bit as good as the first album. Its not as synth heavy but shows they have matured all round with sam endicots lyrics being much deeper than stuff like "Stop, Drop and roll" great song as it is.

The first single "Time Won't Let Me Go" is quite reprensentive of the album as whole much as "An Honest Mistake" did for The Bravery.

Much like the first album I like every single song on it not a dud in sight stand outs are the whistle fest "Bad Sun", "Angelina", "Everyword is a knife in my ear" and "Time Won't Let Me Go".

Great great album only shame is missing the three bonus tracks available from other surces.

I actually bought this album without reading any reviews, just because I always buy the next album of a band if I liked thier previous album.

Given it one listen and it's better than I expected. I say that as I haven't fared very well on my indie buys this year, don't much like the new Killers album Sam's Town, don't much like the new Bloc Party etc. Its all a bit too "try hard forced" this years indie crop.

Been reading the "pro" reviews of this album and I see it's getting utterly panned, but I reckon ignore that, its just the music nerds being cooler than thou. The real test for me is if *I* like it. They can go root themsleves if they can't add to my enjoyment.

enjoy!

It's hard to imagine that two and a half years ago, the Bravery were trumpeted as the new "cool" band for the indie masses (although who isn't these days). Stories of upstart Sam Endicott blanking frustrated rocker Kate Moss were making the gossip columns of British tabloids, along with the infamous feud with Brandon Flowers which evidently had a detrimental effect on the popularity of the band. Just like so many hyped trendy newcomers before them on the threshold of fame, they suddenly became a figure of ridicule. Too much too soon.

In the time since The Bravery's self titled debut arrived to critical acclaim, the Killers have gone stratospheric, whilst other contemporaries Interpol can look forward to arena-sized tours around the UK later this year in spite of their low profile. The Bravery meanwhile took the backward step in April of playing university student unions and small clubs. Well, I was at the ULU show a few weeks ago and I can tell you this band are back with an absolute vengeance. Their 2005 debut was probably my most played album that year alongside A Certain Trigger, and this will definitely be the same. Thankfully, they're distancing themselves somewhat from the voguish fad of dressing up in eyeliner a la The Cure (or indeed, Endicott resembling a Morrissey tribute). The melodies on "The Sun And The Moon" are far more rounded this time, and the synth-pop is minimal. It sounds much more like a work the band are setting their own standards for, not for their label's marketing department.

"Every Word Is A Knife In My Ear" is an absolute beast of a song, reminiscent of the bouncy, arms-aloft shouty feel of "Fearless" but this time with a mosh-friendly bass.

The bravery have come back with a fantastic album that is a joy from start to finish. From first single 'Time Wont Let Me Go' to latest song 'Believe' you can hear the efforts of the foursome come to the front. Buy it now!
