Having been a Lostprophet fan since the release of "Start Something" i was really looking forward to hearing another fantastic album by one of my favourite bands. After listening through the album however i was left feeling quite dissapointed with them this time. The album isn't bad....it's just ok. There feels like there isn't alot of passion throughout the album and the lyrics seem very borring and poorly written (Something that surprised me as normally they are fantastic lyricists). "Better Off Dead" is actually one of the best songs by Lostprophets i think i've heard but unfortunately it was the only song on the album i was actually excited about. Hopefully they will turn it around for the next one as despite this i still love them as a group!

As a long time Lostprophets fan I was ecstatic on nabbing a signed copy of this album, Jamie Oliver (I assume) has even taken time to sketch himself a hat on his photo. Signed or otherwise the album artwork is great with lots of historical imagery and enough sprockets to keep a steampunk nut such as myself more than satisfied. Also if anyone was wondering the scroll reading "Deus Velox Nex" basically means "God's Swift (but violent) Death" in latin, probably borrowed from the Nicholas Cage film "Drive Angry" (read into it if you must).

Anyway, the music on the album is fantastic but that comes as no surprise; it's brilliantly performed, well mixed and for the most part has some stirring lyrics. To my ear it also sounds as well produced as any of their previous albums (contrary to a previous reviewers opinion). Now the Tracks:

Bring Em' Down - Not exactly the norm; plenty of bass and synth make for a different, but none the less great, single.

We Bring An Arsenal - Pacey and catchy; this is a a great singalong track which definitely echos a chanting crowd.

Another Shot - Classic Lostprophets; a treat for (post-"Fake Sound of Progress") long-term fans and an excuse for newcomers to work back through the discography.

Jesus Walks - An amazing track (best on the album?); deep, catchy and definitely the song that I had stuck in my head after the first listen.

A Song From Where I'm From - A meaningful anthem about missing home (or youth?), feels a bit like "Where We Belong", "Last Summer" or even "Ode to Summer" in theme.

A Little Reminder That I'll Never Forget - Regrettably, nothings special but not a bad track either.

Plenty of great songs. Just what you expect from this band whether they make another we will have to wait and see.

A great fith album from the welsh boys. Their best album since 'Start Something.'

Bring Em Down - 9/10 A great lead single, different, but still keeps that great lostprophets energy.

We Bring an Arsenal - 10/10 Football chant like intro, extremely catchy verses and lyrics, powerful sing along chorus. Lostprophets at their best.

Another Shot - 9/10 - Sounds like it just got pulled from Start Something, a sign of past brilliance.

Jesus Walks - 10/10 - Best song on the album. Very uplifting and memorable.

A song for where I'm from - 9/10 Love the lyrics in the chorus, so bittersweet.

A little reminder that I'll never forget - 7/10 One of the weakest on the album, however, still a good song. Interesting intro.

Better off Dead - 10/10 Another unfamiliar sound from them. The near rap verses are amazing. Strong chorus.

Heart on Loan - 7/10 Weakest on the album. Feels like a filler. Still worth a listen.

Somedays - 10/10 Don't let the slower pacing of the song put you off. Brilliant song. The vocals really shines here.

Can't get enough - 9/10 Again, sounds like it was pulled straight from 'Start Something.' I don't understand why there is a 10 minute silence after the song has finished though.

I reccomend you buy this album. Lostprophets are a highly underrated band with not as much recognition as they should have. They are far better than most of the tripe poprock bands you find nowadays ( All time low, You me at six ) to name a few. SUPPORT THEM

Lostprophets were a band that I passionately followed for a lot of my teen years. I was a fan of their first four albums and they were one of my main inspirations in music. That was why it was such a tragedy when Ian Watkins was charged with and later pleaded guilty to horrific child sex offenses and ended the band's 16 year career. Many of the reviews of this album on Amazon here are angry demands from people to ban Lostprophets' music from being sold online and condemning the people who were fans of this group, ignoring the fact that there were other members besides Ian. Whilst I in no way condone Ian's crimes and I am appalled and saddened like everybody else over what he has done, I strongly believe that the music and the artist should be separated (I already discussed this to death in my product reviews for other Lostprophets LPs but I'm reiterating to people on this product) and I prefer to judge a band or musician based on their talents and the music they put out.

As someone who loved Lostprophets' previous four albums, Weapons, their final release before Ian's arrest, is a very morbid and underwhelming album and in retrospect, a depressing final record for the group. Considering how terrific their 2010 album The Betrayed was (which is my favourite Lostprophets album), Weapons is a total drop in quality for the band. People who despise Lostprophets in terms of musical quality often point to them being derivative and lacking in meaningful songwriting. I strongly disagree with these criticisms on the whole but Weapons is a perfect summation of those critiques. Almost every song on the album doesn't work and feels like it was copied and pasted from a prior album, only made less impressionable and memorable.
