5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Debut, Not For Fans Of Gareth Gates, 9 Nov. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: See This Through And Leave (Audio CD)
'My oh my I'm seeing the potential, lets just see what we can do' states Ben Gautrey on 'Who Needs Enemies', I'm sure someone said that upon hearing this band for the first time. What has been done, is that one hell of a great debut album has been made.
It was seeing this band live at the jubilee concert 'Middlesbrough Music Live' that really got me into them.
Possibly the best debut album of 2002 was what I bought afterwards.
Loud, angry and trashy are 3 words that sum up the majority of this album, but also great melodies are somehow fitted in.
Opening track 'Did You Miss Me' is for me the album's highlight, starting off quiet before building to a brilliant bass filled crescendo, then turning into one of the angriest parts of this album.'Panzer Attack' is the most anger fuelled track on here. Chart hits 'Film-Maker', 'Who Needs Enemies', 'Lets Kill Music' and 'Been Training Dogs' are some of the more melodic tracks on here. 'Amber' and 'Digital Observations' are something of a break from the noise created by the opening 4 tracks. 'The Lake' is probably the darkest, and best written track here. The 8 minute finale 'Murder Song' is a great end to a great album. The bonus CD offers more great tracks and live material where the band really excel.
Anyone who is in to bands like The Vines, The Hives, Primal Scream, will love this, The Cooper Temple Clause are right up your street.
