5.0 out of 5 stars Bombay Bicycle Club - I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose, 10 Dec 2009
This review is from: I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose (Audio CD)
Short Review:
Its awesome, please do yourself a favor get it!! I've listened to it loads over the past few months because it sounds great and it never gets boring.

Long Review:
These guys are getting more and more popular and for this I am glad. I've really enjoyed listening to this album, it grows on you after just one listen and is something you can listen to anytime. I only bought it by chance as I'd heard of them a few times through Radio 1 and the Radio 1 Big Weekend Introducing Stage, and it was a great investment. With this as their debut album, packed with awesome musical creativity and talent, BBC (Bombay Bicycle Club) have set the bar high. This album doesn't consist of just a few great tracks with some filler tracks, every track is worth playing alone but the album should definatley be played all the way through.

The band members are: Jack Steadman (Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass), Jamie MacColl (Lead guitar, Bass, Vocals), Ed Nash (Bass, Keyboards) and Suren de Saram (Drums).

Stand out track: To be honest it is very hard to chose one as they all stand out. In this case I'll choose two.

1. Magnet - The intro has a cool guitar riff and the chorus is amazing, its colourful, full of energy and has a beautiful winding sound accompanied by lead singer Steadman's unique voice, singing 'We took the back-seat, everyone way ha-ppy'. Very summery. The track finishes with a low-fi, low-tempo instrumental.

2. Always Like This - A great song to play on guitar/bass with the cool riff repeating and great chord play between the two guitars. Also a cool funky one to dance to.

This is a fun, catchy, uplifting and sometimes euphoric record, which would be great for those evenings in the company of friends. If you appreciate 'proper' music this is one for your music collection.
