not the same futureheads,
This review is from: News and Tributes (Audio CD)
this is my favourite album of the year so far.
i remember the futureheads self titled debut album, i remember how great it was but then how i sort of 'fell out of love' with it too. the songs started to sound less fresh and perhaps a little cliched, maybe irritating.
now, news & tributes is totally different, its a much easier listen, its generally a much better album. the songs again sound fresh but i have the feeling that they are going to stay fresh this time around. skip to the end is a great song to reintroduce the futureheads back into the charts but there are much better songs included on the album;
yes/no - great song, does feel a little maximo park-ish in the middle of the song as mentioned by another reviewer, but is that such a bad thing?
return of the beserker - i can imagine this song being amazing live, seems like a perfect gig song!
fallout - very good song, has the trademark futureheads 'oooo ooo's!'
back to the sea - a slower song, very catchy, will be lodged in your head for a while.
after listening to news & tributes, i decided to crack open the futureheads debut and after a year of not being listened to, it sounds as good as it did originally so buy that CD too if you dont already have it!
