My, don't they grow up fast!

Now then, I get the 'obvious' comparison to The Jam with these blokes, however I'm more inclined to put them in a similar stable to The Young Knives, The Rakes, 9 Black Alps and latter-day Buzzcocks in the hope that The Enemy can maintain an element of current day credibility. If this is the difficult third album it doesn't show. What Streets in the Sky delivers is catchy, anthemic punk-pop. No weak tracks here, the band has the previous venture firmly behind them and have gotten back to the business in hand - catchy bounce along choruses, bang on harmonies, chunksome geetars and an exuberance which exudes confidence, but most of all it all sounds like these geezers are having so much fun!! Don't get me wrong, it'll never be a classic in the Grand Scheme of Things, but you could do a lot, lot worse. Suggest you give it a whirl - you won't lose any 'street cred' and it just may put a smile on yer clock and a spring in yer step. Go on.......you know you want to!
