I have played this a few times now, but it is still fresh and continues to grow on me, however the knockout tracks for me, are the two singles: 'Valerie' and 'Why don't you give me your love', plus 'Oh Stacey (look what you've done)' and 'I know I'll never leave', which vocally David McCabe really belts out. The Zutons have a retro sound, but with contempory lyrics. They're like a mix of: The Faces, Marc Bolan & T-Rex, and 'Ziggy Stardust' & 'Aladdin Sane' period Bowie, finished off with a Britpop sensibility, and Ska type saxophone playing courtesy of sax on legs - Abi Harding, who is an awesome sax player, and if it were 1979/1980, she would probably be in a Ska band like The Bodysnatchers. The song that really blew me away the most, out of all the songs that I mentioned, was 'Oh Stacey (look what you've done)'. The breezy saxophone playing, combined with it's uplifting tune, is very deceptive, because lyrically it is a very tragic tale about a daughter stressing out her dad to the point where the stress kills him, and then she drinks her inheritence money to cope with what she's done. We have a great British tradition of writing tragic lyrics disguised in upbeat commercial sounding songs. Buy it!

I like this album as much as the debut. The excellent production and more mainstream feel should project the Zutons to superstradom. As a buyer of mainly 70's and 80's material I must admit that these are one of only a handful of new(ish)bands that excite me. The quality of the songwriting is reflected in the fact that virtually everybody I know loves "Valerie". I'm sure I will be enjoying this for years to come.

A fantastic second album. The same Zuton feel to songs without sounding exactly like 'Who killed the Zutons'. Some new classic tunes sure to get your feet tapping include 'It's the Little things' all about the injustice of hangovers; 'Valerie' and 'Why won't you give me your love' being just some of the examples of the dark humour and zesty sax tracks that any Zutons fan will effortlessly love!

Unlike The Darkness' disappointing second album this is a beautifully understated album that flew in below the radars of hype. I was a really big fan of the Who Killed the Zutons and found my self sticking it on reapeat, espcially when driving.

This is another well-crafted album from the scouse group and shows their originality in a market where everyone is trying to be James Blunt, The Arctic Monkeys or The Sugababes. It is definitely a grower and needs to be listened to a few times to really get into it.

Q marked the album rather harshly, I thought and felt that the person reviewing it had not listened to the light 'Why Won't You Give Me Your Love?'or the deep'Someone Watching Over Me'. Check it out, this is a great follow-up. If you didn't buy Who Killed the Zutons, then do so also, as they make a really good pair of albums to have. Great and proud to be different.

The Zutons kind of crept up on the music world with their first album. It crawled in under the radar and its catchy songs and original sound ended up firmly lodged in a lot of people's heads. This time around, however, there's been a lot of expectation laid on the band to produce a follow-up just as good or even better.

While 'Tired Of Hanging Around' doesn't really have as many obvious single choices, it's a much more complex album blending a variety of styles and genres. Songs like 'Secrets' and 'How Does It Feel?' reveal a different side to the band, with their unusual arrangements and thoughtful lyrics. We even get a duet between lead singer Dave McCabe and sax player Abi Harding on 'You Got A Friend In Me'.

Of course, at heart this is a pop album and so there are some hugely entertaining sing-a-long songs as well. You'll probably have heard the menacing growl of 'Why Won't You Give Me Your Love?', and the throaty howl of 'Hello Conscience' (from this year's Warchild album) but as well as those there's a number of songs that really catch your ear. 'It's The Little Things We Do', 'Oh Stacey!' and 'Valerie' all brim with the irrepresible wit and energy of a band who know exactly what music they want to make, and have been given the opportunity to do so.

There's not really a weak track on this album, all of them can be brilliant depending on your mood. An altogether very accomplished and enjoyable second album that's guaranteed to be absolutely stunning when performed live

'Who killed the Zutons' was a fresh album of under produced songs that grabbed the attention of a music buying public sick of the slick sounds of Radiohead/Coldplay clones, let alone the anodyne sounds of the R&B chart fillers. Critics smiled along and enjoyed the quick injection of something fresh before going back and giving 'X&Y' seventeen stars and twenty three award nominations.

Any group with street savvy would see a good thing when it happened and make a carbon copy of their first album before calling number two.

the Zutons, instead, are enjoying the money afforded to the production of their second disc and have put some effort into the final pressing of their sophomore record. Vingettes along the lines of those offered in 'Valerie' are engaging whilst the musical background shows true growth, encompassing soul and rock without losing the groups 'rehearsing in the garage', (garage rock is a stolen genre), feel.

The amateur feel is due in no small part to the unaffected lead vocals of David McCabe who effects the same stance as before - he is who he is - the songs are what makes it different.

The Zutons have grown in the past year and their music has grown with them. That they are sounding more mainstream than before is no derision - this is still so obviously the Zutons...they've just learnt how to sound more confident.
