Despite the music press hyperbole and self-proclaimed greatness (if I had a penny for every comparison to the Gallaghers...), this album is actually very good, its only short coming being its slight lack of variation. Borrell's lip curling vocal echoes Lou Reed and Tom Verlaine, and the group have clearly been hanging around in their local record store's 'post-punk' section. The album starts blindingly, losing its way a little at the midpoint before being resurrected by shoe-in singles 'Golden Touch' and 'Stumble and Fall' and then the excellent 'To The Sea'. Much has been said about Borrell's 'grown-up' songwriting, but it seems that his lyricism, while at times highly accomplished (although Dylan-esque is perhaps too strong), is frequently lazy and repetitive. His 'falling' imagery, for instance, grates a little as it is not particularly original and is over-used. But these are only very small imperfections that marr this very promising debut. It seems to me that when Borell's songwriting does reach an artistic maturity, should their potential ephemeral 'great white hype' tag not bury them, then Razorlight will be a very important group indeed.
