4.0 out of 5 stars A promising debut 15 Aug 2012
By Mr M.R.Watkinson TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The band's website describes them as irreverent. They're certainly that. Any women's libber coming across Underwear would certainly have a fit. Equally, anyone bothering to listen properly to Underwear would realise it isn't meant to be taken seriously. They're a fun band. They put me in mind of rockabilly, with their bounce & energy.

The worst tracks on the album are President's Daughter & The End, and they're OK. The best? Full Steam Space Machine, Tommy-Gun, Underwear, and Good To Be Bad all vie for the spot. I'd include The Royal, except that it's too short, and there is my only criticism of the album. I'll admit that Progressive luminaries such as Rush & Dreamtheater are a staple part of my musical diet. Nevertheless, even Motorhead release albums of 45-50 minutes. This is barely 35.

There's no doubting their creativity - watch their videos on youtube for the likes of FSSM & you can't help but agree. But the album is very short, and can they sustain that standard and develop from it? Of that, I'm not so sure. Their new single, Addictive, is good. It is longer than almost all of these songs, but it's also a much slower tempo. It has repetitive lyrics, as do several tracks on this album. So, in a sense, it's a slowed-down version of the same song that makes up about half of this album. I really do hope they will develop, rather than churning out more or less the same album over & over. They're energetic, they're fun, they're not to be taken seriously. They're also "only" worth 4* at the moment. A more than solid debut that, I hope, they can build on!

5.0 out of 5 stars Adrenalin fuelled rock and roll machine. 14 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this after hearing a track released on a free compilation from roadrunner records and reading reviews here on Amazon. Great fun and accomplished album or rock with a bit of indie pop. One reviewer said you can't stop smiling, he hit the nail on the head. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly Rockin' 27 Nov 2011
By SkippiD
Format:Audio CD
I purchased 'We are the Royal' after hearing the ever-catchy 'Underwear' and then 'Tommy Gun'; half expecting these to be the only two gems on the album. However I was very pleasantly surprised. Rarely does one come across an album of which every single song is as likable the first time you listen to it, and then proceed to listen to again...and again...and again, all still maintaining their original flair. This is simply one of the best albums I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. If it's catchy tunes with heavy guitars and charismatic Swedish rockers with handlebar moustaches that you're into...buy this album. It's captivating and fun, and I have high hopes for the success of Royal Republic. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Band - Rare these days! 30 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD
I was first introduced to Royal Republic by listening to their track, 'President's Daughter', on the 'Discover Download' CD which came with my copy of Classic Rock magazine Issue 159. I liked the track so much that I went out and bought this album on the strength of just this one track. I wasn't disappointed, there isn't a bad track on the whole album, every track is a manic infusion of rock and fun! A great album to break the ice at parties!

Royal Republic remind me of a mix of Electric Six, The Hives, OK!Go and Turbonegro, (all 'mad' fun bands) rolled in to one! Far too many bands take themselves too seriously these days, and it makes a welcome change, to add Royal Republic to the above named, who put the fun back in to the music industry.

Go buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Resistance is futile! 23 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
Fantastic rock-pop-punk-cheese whatever you want to tag it as; it's GOOD MUSIC! Fast, furious & punchy, so much energy! Not the longest album ever but I want to listen to it over & over again! Resistance is futile!
My favourites are 'Tommy gun' & 'Because Of You' Rock music with pop sensibility, but also, a real insight into human behaviour with their obsrvational lyrics - shows deep talent & I look forward to their next offering already!
Not just music to make you tap your feet & boogie. Fantastic facial hair too!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Right Royal Treat 20 Mar 2011
By Assunta
Format:Audio CD
Wow these guys have come out of nowhere! (Actually they hail from Sweden but you take my point) Their debut album is wall to wall energy from start to finish. (Not Finnish...apologies for the bad jokes its one of those days) Royal Republic's style is really cheeky and will have you up and dancing within seconds. I saw them on tour last week and my favourites from the album- President's Daughter, Full Steam Space Machine and Tommy Gun were amazing live. They're definitely a band to watch and fingers crossed they will be back to the UK soon to play a couple of festivals. This is a must buy for fans of The Hives and The Eagles of Death Metal.
