Product Description

Product Description

Tipped as one of the most vital breakthrough bands of 2007,
The Enemy follow their Top 10 hit single `Away From Here' with the release
of their eagerly anticipated debut album `We'll Live And Die In These
Towns'.

`We'll Live And Die In These Towns' highlights `Away From Here' alongside
the limited edition Stiff Records singles `It's Not OK' and '40 Days & 40
Nights' with fiery and impassioned new material such as `You're Not Alone',
`This Song' and the title-track.

BBC Review

Firstly, the good things about the album. The Enemy's energy bursts through the speakers, and the sound is nice and tight, and the choruses are just begging to be shouted back at the band by a sweaty, overly enthusiastic crowd.

Recent single 'Had Enough' is an album highlight, with 'It's Not OK' a close second. Both are on the right side of raucous and shouty and give the feel of a band full of frustrated energy and ambition. In fact, all of the songs on We'll Live And Die In These Towns are short (the longest track is just over 4 minutes), sharp indie pop.

But the overall impression is that a lot of this album is filler from a fairly one-dimensional band. They do the job, but there's little to keep your interest on this debut album. 'Technodanceaphobic', in trying to get a driving drum beat and riff going, just ends up sounding monotonous, and 'Happy Birthday Jane' is almost too dreary to mention.

Lyrically it is hardly advanced either. Gems such as 'Irony can be quite funny/You making other people money/My working day has just begun/It's not exactly what I would call fun' pepper the album. You get the feeling that the next cliché about being a wage slave is just round the corner.

The bottom line is that you have heard this before, and you have heard it done better by the likes of The Arctic Monkeys and Hard Fi. The only subject matter seems to be of everyday sulky teens stuck in tin pot towns and rubbish jobs, with chips the size of Gibraltar on their shoulders - fine for a few tracks, but a whole album?

If you are a teenage boy you will like this album. If you aren't, you would do better off going elsewhere. --Helen Groom

After a gruelling schedule of UK tours, two smash-hit singles and a whole world of hype, "We'll Live And Die In These Towns" the now long and eagerly awaited debut album by Coventry 3-piece The Enemy surpasses all expectations.

Although Coventry's unlikely looking new rock sensations are unusually reluctant to offer up the names of their musical influences, "We Live And Die" is an album that reveals it's many roots as readily and as reassuringly as the most painstakingly completed family tree. At times Clarke's voice is almost scarily reminiscent of a young Paul Weller, and several tracks, most notably the title track, take on a fittingly Jam-like feel. There's an immediate, all-consuming energy to We Live And Die that echoes Oasis' classic debut. Add to that a swaggering, over confident attitude conjured up by Tom Clarke's invigorating vocals, and no doubt inspired by a similar working background to the Gallaghers, and a more than passing resemblance to the Manc legends early sound and attitude is complete. Throw the Sex Pistols, The Verve, and The Who into the mix and you're still only scratching the surface. Although comparisons to such lofty names are all well and good, to imply The Enemy are somehow lacking their own sound would be doing them a disservice. These young lads have welded together the sounds of their influences with a skill and unwavering confidence that belies their inexperience. More punk than Oasis will ever be, more Brit-rock than The Sex Pistols ever could have been, this is high octane inide rock n roll that sounds less like the Stereophonics and more like the Pigeon Detectives getting a kicking for pissing off the Clash's roadies.

When you think of Coventry bands the one name that always springs to mind is The Specials. Well now there is another name to think of ...............The Enemy.

The first time I heard anything by The Enemy was in the Stores office at work, when Liam's dad, who I worked with at the time, brought in a copy of a 3 track demo they had cut in a studio. He had been talking about them for months and at the time was still their manager. To be honest, I was expecting just another pub covers band who could play a bit. What I heard in '40 Days & 40 Nights' an the other 2 tracks was an amazing sound, reminiscent of Paul Weller and The Jam, without falling into the trap of sounding like a copy or a re-hash of late 70's Mods. This was fresh and original, something new. Anyone with half a brain could tell these boys were going to be big!

Most impressive song for me, I think, is the title track, lyrically intelligent and very much, for me anyway, a tribute to Weller. If you want to, you can hear all sorts of influences from their predecessors such as Oasis, Weller/Jam, The Specials, but the bottom line is that these boys have enough originality and talent in their own right to rub shoulders with the best of them!

The Enemy are here to stay. I'm glad to have had the chance to have heard them way back when. Their energy is refreshing enough to make even old gits like me feel young again!!

Long may it last!

A must have album of 2007.From start to finish this album does not disappoint.From the raw edgy songs of aggro and technodanceaphobic to the jam like sounds of live and die in these towns and 40 days 40 nights the 11 tracks combined make this a quality album to own.In my eyes they are the band of 2007.They are amazing live as well

Yes there are a couple of songs here you won't want to listen to too much, they're not bad they just arn't as great as the rest, However many of the finest albums in history have some not as great tracks on them. The songs that are good on WLADITT are absolutely brilliant, The Enemy have something to say which is refreshing when many bands are content to write meaningless lyrics rather than express any emotion or feeling, WLADITT gives a voice to the sense of disapointment and frustration that is central to the English way of life in 2007, I think this is a realy great debut from a truely original band who have worked hard and remained true to their roots, I have to give it 5 stars because I love it

I know, bands that could get drunk on all the hype they receive annoy me a little too, and I try with every ounce of strength in my body to loathe them. Most of the time I acheive this, but once in a while a truly talented band come out to say hello, and they can't be ignored. The Enemy are one of those bands, and 'We'll Live and Die in These Towns' simply isn't to be ignored!

Top songs? " Away from Here" was an instant classic as I'm sure you're aware. The title track is brilliant, 'You're Not Alone' and 'This Song' are also genius - the best tracks on the album. The fillers ain't to shabby either.

I don't want to go into great detail, but The Enemy are awesome and deserve a listen. Give them a go!

I really did not know what to expect of this album until it was released, I really really thought Away From Here would be the only good track of the album, I was so so so wrong.
This is the band we have been waiting for in the 21st century, now I know they are all still teenagers, but they have created the most exciting album since Oasis's Definately Mabye.
I wouldn't be surprised if by the time their second album is released whenever they perform in England just before they get on stage Tom screams WHO THE **** are KASABIAN, because this is a Classic Classic Debut Album the one we have been waiting years for. Here is the Lowdown.
1 Aggro
Starts slowly but then turns into a sort of football anthem by the chorus.
2.Away From Here
Best track of the album but only just. We have been singing along to this for months already.
3.Pressure
Quite a good song
4.Had Enough
Recent single, good song
5.We'll Live and Die In These Towns
Slower song of the album, but still great song
6.You're Not Alone
Due to be next single, great song
7.It's Not OK
This was one of their first singles i think, excellent song
8.Technodanceaphobic
Excellent song
9.40 days and 40 nights
Debut single I think, great song
10.This Song
Slow but great
11.Happy Birthday Jane
Closer of the album, good song to close with.

I know I have not reviewed this very well, but there is not a single dull song on the album, beware of The Enemy for the future because whatever they do next is set to be amazing
