5.0 out of 5 stars Album of the year?, 17 Oct 2010
This review is from: Growing Pains (Audio CD)
Just when I thought i'd bought the best album of the year in Violent Soho's debut along comes this little belter! I really don't know what the BBC guy was listening to as he obviously didn't have the stamina to listen to the whole album. The only thing Indie about this album is the record label, this is pure, 100% alternative rock. Each song has massive hooks and guitars set to kill, must've been too much for the poor fella from Auntie Beeb, best go back to reviewing real 'indie' music so he doesn't have a heart attack, there's a good boy now!

As mentioned before by other reviewers you can hear elements of Foo Fighters, Nirvana and Weezer in the music but it's fresh enough to work and it's also British which is a huge bonus. Maybe DPU are now the rightful owners of Britains best alternative rock band crown now that Biffy and Idlewild have gone all middle aged on us. Can't wait to see them live.

1.0 out of 5 stars Complete Dross!, 14 Jan 2009
This review is from: Kids (Audio CD)
Music for people who have to be told what to like by the NME etc rather than actually discovering for themselves.

The tune sounds like it came pre-programmed off a 20 Casio keyboard, the lyrics are inane and the singing is woeful. Hopefully once the NME produces its 'Who to listen to in 2009' list this'll be the last we hear of MGMT and their 'music', one can only speculate on how bad what replaces them will be.
