5.0 out of 5 stars Accomplished debut from Coventry's finest 22 Nov 2007
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Here To Stay 20 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars coventry's finest 10 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
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

5.0 out of 5 stars Sent from Coventry 10 Nov 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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

5.0 out of 5 stars A Seriously Top Record 7 Aug 2007
Format:Audio CD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars What we have been waiting for for many years 15 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
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

Good album

3.0 out of 5 stars Average indie
Nothing special really, though not a poor album. Lacking in any distinctive character and overall just not all that creative or even tight musically.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent album
My favourite album of the three that the Enemy have produced so far. No real filler tracks, it's a good album to listen to rather than owning only for the singles

4.0 out of 5 stars Great debut from a fresh sounding young band!
For a debut album, The Enemy's 2007 'We'll Live and Die In These Towns' is a very good record, with only a few sub-par tracks (hence the four stars). Read more

I bought this CD as some told me that they reminded them of the Jam. The group has an energy about them and after several listens there are some songs that a Jam fan might like. Read more
