5.0 out of 5 stars St Jude - Patron Saint of Lost Causes; not this time!!!, 13 Oct. 2008
This review is from: St. Jude (Audio CD)
I first heard of The Courteeners at this year's "V" Festeval; I hadn't heard of them and wasn't going to bother - until I heard them. They were brilliant!!! I bought the album, St Jude, as soon as I could afterwards. There is a definite "Libertine" style to their music, but I have got to disagree with any similarity to The Smiths or Morrissey. No, lyrically, I would say there is a suggestion of The Wedding Present, but the most important thing is that The Courteeners have a very unique sound - they are not a product of other styles nor are they Top Ten Pop Fodder; they are a band that should be watched for the future. The bonus disc gives an even better insight into the band's abilities, with acustic versions of album tracks and additional tracks to delight, amaze and leave you wanting more. A truly brilliant album and, even if you have to sell an elderly relative to do so, I recomend you see The Courteeners live.
