This review is from: The Others (Audio CD)
I have read three reviews from this website and all of them have been slating the album. I have also read fantastic reviews from the likes of NME, Times, Guardian and a 10/10 rating from Vice Magazine.
There has been much controversy surrounding this band and the difference in reviews just illustrates my point. Personally I think that everyone should have a copy of this album...if not two so you can give one to a friend.
Dominic may not sing like Freddie Mercury but he is good at what he does and that is sing lyrics that MEAN something and deliver them in such a way that it connects with the listener. During community 853 there is a moment where he sings 'I haven't got the answers I haven't got the key...' and you really feel like he's saying it to you. The music makes your heart race as you recognise the song by the opening bar. You can't help humming, tapping your foot or singing along.
One of the most honest albums I have ever heard.
