1.0 out of 5 stars Excruciating lyrics and unsophisticated songs
This is a good album for those who haven't a clue.
I don't know who wrote the lyrics but they are not in the league of Ian Curtis, Howard Devoto or even Marc Almond.
The lyrics are so childish as to be unreal, a seven year old would be embarrassed writing such piffle.
The backing music is as unsophisticated and childish.
If the NME says it's great then...

5.0 out of 5 stars ... Lost Bothers live - they sing in what feels like a very close harmony, 16 July 2014
I have seen the Lost Bothers live - they sing in what feels like a very close harmony, the kind that is so hard to achieve, and is almost as one rich voice. Technically, they didn't drop a note that I heard, but that's just detail I guess, and testimony to six years hard work...the beauty is in the story telling, the Clown's last day at work, the Working Lady, and the love that could not be more. Like Willy Vlautin and Amy Boone who they supported that night, in a small bar up a grubby street, they are probably far too good to reach an X Factored world...there is something deeply wrong in that, but for those who need an antidote, buy this album; the money is a round of drinks, and it will taste a great deal better...meanwhile, look elsewhere for their ghostly and brilliantly animated Blue Moon in September...if Johnny Cash was still with us, I'm sure he would have the good sense to cover it....I don't think I can speak more highly than that.

1.0 out of 5 stars Excruciating lyrics and unsophisticated songs, 29 July 2014
This is a good album for those who haven't a clue.
I don't know who wrote the lyrics but they are not in the league of Ian Curtis, Howard Devoto or even Marc Almond.
The lyrics are so childish as to be unreal, a seven year old would be embarrassed writing such piffle.
The backing music is as unsophisticated and childish.
If the NME says it's great then it must be a crock of ****.
They are just paid by record companies to give good reviews and their journalists are just kids who know nothing about music's rich tapestry.
Also, why is the word "she" in every song?
This crock of an album is even worse than U2 and their U2 by numbers records.

Avoid this at all costs.
It's made by kids for the kids and the kids will give anything a good review.
Buy some Throbbing Gristle instead.
