Not as good as I had hoped
on 12 September 2013
I grew up in the punk era and spent a lot of time jumping around at gigs trying to avoid the spit and flying chairs/bottles, but loving the energy of what I was listening to. When I heard 'Best of Frends', it took me right back to those days and I was really looking forward to this offering. Sadly, 180 is a bit under-cooked and, aside from 'Best of Friends' (anthemic, big choruses) and 'We found love', there isn't much to hold your attention.
That said, I've seen these guys live and they were awesome. If they are given a bit of time to work on their material and are not surrounded by too many sycophants, the PVs will become a great band. They just aren't there yet.
