In My Own Words:
I listen to a lot of music of different types. no-one seems to have the same taste as me, and there certainly isn't a genre that I would fit into. The consistent element I guess: have to be good lyrics and use guitars. I listen to different music for different moods and situations. I am a big fan of what i suppose is called college rock, weezer/nada surf/switchfoot/rival schools etc.

Last time I heard of such a split in opinion was with the arrival of Fightstar. Enter Shikari seems to be doing the same job.

This time last week, I knew nothing about Enter Shikari. Now I am an advocate. In a nut shell its hard rock with some "hands in the air" keyboards, all wrapped up in a emo ish presentation. Or, even simpler, guitars and keys with a melody. I really like it. The musicianship is not always spot on, but so what - are we asking people to write exams before we can enjoy the music.

Loads of influences in the music, which is fine by my. I like a kick drum onslaught and shout, as much as I do a harmony, and I really don't mind the trancey… Read more

Without doubt the best album i have bought in some time. Before I go any further, I will outline that I have listened to this album about 30 times in the last week. Thats probably comparable with the life time of listenings to many of other cds I have bought in a while.
This is the sort of album whereby you listen to it, and one song pops out (Rapt. Dept), then you listen again and another one pops out (Schteeeve) and some more listens down the line a few more seem to have some great hooks and your not sure which one you cant get out of your head at any one time(Team Radar, Fivefour and Yesterday Head). And then, a week later, someone tells you that one of the other songs is the… Read more

As a fan of the first single, massive US and EU hit POPULAR, i bought hi/low and then the proximity effect and loved them both in their own unique way. They capture a kind of grunge rock rock that was happy and dramtic, whilst still rough and energetic. So what a suprise when I picked up Let Go.
Rarely does a band shift genre so effortlessly, I even had to check the sleave to make sure it was the same line up. The bands history of tough deals from record companies explains their absence, but not the change in direction. Let Go features the kind of heart led accoustic honesty that is normally left to the oldies and the modern ne'er do wells. The single The way your head is probably… Read more
