5.0 out of 5 stars Your new favourite band, 23 Jun 2006
This is a truly wonderful album that will be the soundtrack to my summer, and deserves to be heard blarring out of windows and cars everywhere.

I've had Underachievers... for a while, and whilst it was enjoyable it never became a must-play record. But Let's Get... has instantly seized control of my iPod. Surely Hey Lloyd & Tell Me Where It All Went Wrong would be number 1 for 10 weeks each in an ideal world.

On an initial listen it appears similar to Underachievers... - a touch of 50s/early 60s American pop, some joyful happy adrenalin rush pop. But after a few listens it's apparent that it is all that Underachievers... was but much much more - better songs, better instrumentation, better lyrics, better vocals - not a weakness on there.

A poor man's Belle & Sebastian? Pah!! This record wipes the floor with The Life Persuit, and is the record that you hoped The Concretes In Colour could have been.

Camera Obscura - your new favourite band, making the world a happier place.

(In case you're not sure - I quite liked this record)
