4.0 out of 5 stars What an album!, 27 Mar. 2007
This review is from: Ten New Messages (Audio CD)
This album has been unjustly critisiced by many of the music press (NME) but luckily people with taste should enjoy this fine album. From start to finish it shows that the Rakes have grown in stature and maturity, it needs to be heard.

Tracks:

The world was a mess but his hair was perfect: Great name and a great tune. A really snappy intro that is just like the ld rakes, fast paced and packed with sneer.

Little Superstitions: A song of great maturity, a good song that has a really catchy beat.

We danced together: The lead single from the album, and what a cracker! Everything about this song is immense.

Trouble: A fast paced song. A really strong chorus that will be a live favourite.

Suspicios Eyes: What a tune! With a bit of rapping to boot! A fascinating song abut racism post 7/7. Needs to be heard!

On A Mission: This is where the album slows down in quality songs, it shouldn't be on this album. A good try though.

Down With Moonlight: A good pickup from the previous song, but again, not the best rakes song.

When Tom Cruise Cries: What a great title and what a great song! A brilliant take on our clebrity obsessed culture.

Time To Stop Talking: One of the highlights of the album. Needs to be heard!

Leave the city and come home: An average end to a great album. Could have been better.

Overall: A great second album, great for people into Bloc Party. The Rakes deserved far better media coverage for this album. It is far better than their frst and gives the band a platform to do even better things!
