Don't do many of these reviews but, having seem them live in Portsmouth last night and read the other review, I felt had to come to their defence. This album is great, original and melodic but a bit darker than the first.

They are also one of the best live bands I've seen for a long time, with a strong vocalist, great brass section and manic bass player.

As for one star, Not The Only One is just a classic pop song, London is a belter and Welcome To The Walk Alone a deft opener. They remind me of Cousteau, if anyone remembers them, but with an indie edge and more fun.

Should be huge but doubt they will be.

This is certainly different from "Girls and Weather", but like many great and legendary bands, this is simply an evolution to their next phase of genius. A moody and an original variety of tracks that would grace any West End musical stage, with a sumptious full orchestral support so typical of the perfectionist that is Mark Ronson, producer.

Certainly strains of Scott Walker in the opening and title track, but none the worse for that. "Raindrops" and "Happy Hell" are memorable, as is "Backbone", with a myriad of wonderful wavering discordant strings adding to the ambiance.

Although it could be labelled a retro-sixties collection, it would not do justice to this addictive compilation of the re-born Strips, that promises so much for the future. Ignore this space at your peril!

Their first album was exuberant and full of sing-a-long brass camp. Rumbles second offering may have a darker edge and introduced the strings but is no less enjoyable. Indeed for a second effort it is nothing short of fantastic.

Like many great bands the home format doesn't do the live band justice. However Charlie's voice is still lung-bustingly brilliant and Ronson's production is stamped with class. I have seen them perform 4 times this year the best proving a personal highlight at Reading Festival.

I have been buying this as a present for people who do not know the band, I've heard no negative feedback yet.
