I love this album!
I saw Frankie and the heartstrings live at the Lexington last year when I'd actually gone to see another act -but they so impressed me - its a long time since I've seen a band put in so much effort so I've eagerly awaited the release of this album for a few months now.
Yes they do have a an 80's sound about them -I'd say theres even a bit of Housemartins in there somewhere as well as the bands that have been mentioned in other reviews - but they still feel really fresh compared to what else is out there at the moment. I can honestly say there isn't a duff song amongst them. Favourites for me are Photograph, Hunger and Tender but there isn't anything I don't like which is rare!
So buy this album - its been on repeat on my ipod for over a week now and if you get chance catch them live - you'll be glad you did!
