5.0 out of 5 stars A short stab of something new!
Well, here we are. Hopefully soon, you too can own one of the greatest album of this decade so far! The album is delightful through and through, with the slow pounding catchiness of *city of glass* to the furious mish mash of guitars and vocals in *bishop's son* and *pop group* this album caters for a taste of the new, the fast, and catchy. This band are extremely hard to...

3.0 out of 5 stars Its ok i guess!
The album as a whole is good, 'Rudd' being the best song by far. But it seems to get tiresome towards the end and repetetive. Hardcore fans of the Strokes, Hives, Datsuns and the rest of the new rock revolution bands, will enjoy this more than me most probably and welcome it to there CD collection. But if you have had enough of the new rock revolution, steer clear of this...

5.0 out of 5 stars A short stab of something new!, 7 Feb. 2003
This review is from: Chat And Business (Audio CD)
Well, here we are. Hopefully soon, you too can own one of the greatest album of this decade so far! The album is delightful through and through, with the slow pounding catchiness of *city of glass* to the furious mish mash of guitars and vocals in *bishop's son* and *pop group* this album caters for a taste of the new, the fast, and catchy. This band are extremely hard to describe, but if you think of punk on hyper-pills with a air of class (not to mention looks, they're snazzy dressers!) to it. Be sure to look out for the secret track at the end! Seriously, you need to buy this album, you will NOT be dissappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars A forgotten classic, 28 July 2006

It makes me sad to see that no-one has reviewed this stunning album since someone dismissed it as another "New Rock Revolution" also-ran back in 2003. It's so much more than that. The band always insisted that they'd split up within 5 years and sure enough, at the start of 2005, they did. But they left behind this album, its follow-up (and near-equal) Modern Apprentice and the excellent EP Basic Instructions. And that's not to mention their incendiary and occasionally out of control live shows.

As for what it sounds like, influences such as The Fall, Wire and Joy Division through - it's dark, fast, clattery and noisy, shot through with machine gun drumming, sheet metal guitars, thundering basslines and wry lyrics from the leather jacketed Mr Paul Resende. Art school punk at its best. RIP.

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb debut, 11 Mar. 2002

To start with... what a funky CD cover. Blank canvas.. and you get stickers to fill in the gaps, pretty novel, pretty cool. It is a great start to a great album, and hopefully a long glittering career. At last, Britain had something to challenge the Strokes! Heavy pop punk, and it really hits the spot. Magic album, each song sounds so very different, yet you will love them all.

*** Sounds like Pixies, The Fall, The Strokes ***

5.0 out of 5 stars FRESH BLAST BY YOUR NEW FAVE COLT, 6 Mar. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Chat And Business (Audio CD)
AT LAST, SOMETHING FOR BRITAIN TO BE PROUND OF. THIS IS A STUNNING FIRST ALBUM BY THE BRIT ROCK/PUNK FOUR.EACH TRACK IS DIFFERENT IT ITS OWN WAY. IT OPENS WITH A SCORCHER, ONE NOTE , WITH THE OPENING LINES-SO I ATE A BLOCK OF CHOCOLATE, AND THEN I COULD NOT SLEEP-. THE STAND OUT TRACKS ARE, ONE NOTE, BISHOPS SON, CITY OF GLASS, POP GROUP, BELGRAVIA, SINK VENICE...... HANG ON A MINUTE, ACTUALY EVER TRACK IS THE BEST , BUT IF YOU WANT TO NARROW IT DOWN TO 2 THEN IT WOULD HAVE TO BE RUDD AND AT THE LODGE.PAULS VOCALS ARE FULL OF HAPPIENESS,CLAIRESGUITAR PLAYING IS MAGIC,JONS BASS PLAYING IS OFF THIS WORLD BUT OVERALL DOMOMICS DRUM PLAYING IS TOO GOOD FOR WORDS TO DESCRIBE( AT THE LODGE ), IF YOU LIKE ANY OF THE SINGLES- ONE NOTE , SINK VENICE OR RUDD THEN YOU WILL LOVE THIS RECORD TO BITS BECAUSE, HEY YOU DO LIKE MUSIC, RIGHT!
