When I first heard We Are Scientists on radio 1 I was struck by how cathcy and immediately likeable their music is. When I finally got their album a few weeks ago I found it the same. Although it needs a few listens to really tap into the fine quality of the music it is a very good, solid debut.
When ypu first hear the funky guitar riff of 'Nobody Move' you have an idea of what the album is going to be like: fast, funky, and extremly catchy. My favourite songs are 'Lousy Reputation', 'In Action' and 'Nobody Move Nobody Get Hurt', simply because this the guys at their best.
My only (if a bit picky) complaint is that it's a bit on the short side at only 37 minutes long. Despite this, if you love Franz Ferdinand, Bloc Party and/or Maximo Park then this is a highly recommended album which I feel was slightly overlooked in the excitement of all the other bands at the moment (Arctic Monkeys for instance).
I sincerly recommend this excellent piece of indie/pop/punk!
