Progression to perfection!,
This review is from: Hi-Fi Serious (Audio CD)
The first album 'Monkey Kong' just gave us a taste of what was to come from these guys, some strong sounds but various weak album fillers. 'Hi-fi Serious' launches them into the public eye - and rightly so.
Plucked from virtual obscurity after several years of live gigging, A are finally being recognised and taken seriously by the music industry. 'Nothing' is a superb opener and has a very original verse. '6 o'clock on a tube stop' and 'Going down' are among other brilliant offerings from the guys with subtle hints of the Foo Fighters bleeding through. The last few tracks on the album have more of a punky twinge to them. But the pick of the bunch for me and a potential next single is 'Palm Springs'. Not a heavy tune by any means, but blissfully melodic with catchy guitar riffs. I can't get enough of it.
Forget other pretenders such as Lostprophets and Vex Red, 'A' are the next big thing in British rock music....along with My Vitriol hopefully.
