5.0 out of 5 stars The Dog's Whiskers, 25 Jan 2011
What a relief! Too often apparently talented new bands appear on the horizon then fail to deliver. TJF deliver on this full-length debut. My fear that The Big Roar would simply be an extended version of A Balloon Called Moaning (magnificent though it was) proved unfounded. A glut of new songs and a reworking of the old make this as fresh as you could hope for.
Shades of My Bloody Valentine, Pixies, Throwing Muses but certainly not looking backwards, TJF have a great future ahead if Ritzy & Rhydian maintain this level of creativity.
