This review is from: Such Hot Blood (MP3 Download)
I got into TATE as most people did, on the back of their first album which had some absolute classic songs intertwined with slower ballads.
All at once was a initially bit of a let down, BUT that was only because i expected it to be a replica of the first. Its not. And on its own terms it turned out to be a grower.
Now onto Such Hot Blood. This album is definitely worth a few listens before you make a judgement. It has a very mature sound and reminds me a lot of Interpol which is no bad thing. Lyrically i would give it 5 stars, the melodies are worked seamlessly into the rest of the music and it works very very well.
I saw them live a couple of nights ago in the garage in Glasgow, now i have been to a lot of gigs and i can say in all honestly this one was in my top 3, so much energy from everyone. Mikel Jollett put so much into it, he is an amazing frontman. Anna was so good on the violin and keyboard along with performing a lot lyrically. Noah playing bass along with turns on the guitar, infact everyone played a different instrument at times. So much talent all round.
