5.0 out of 5 stars Superb debut, 9 Jun 2004
This review is from: The Lost Riots (Audio CD)
Just a comment that the review by mrmckille is copied directly off the HMV website!
The album itself is superb. From the soaring, epic opener of "The Black Amnesias" to the intense and raw "The Red The White The Black The Blue", The Lost Riots is an emotional ride, and one that you'll struggle to get bored with.
Far from being depressing, the lyrics are positive and defiant, looking to the future and not dwindling in the past.
I don't believe it can be compared with Muse or Coldplay's most recent offerings as stated in the earlier review, as HOTS are a vastly different band to the aforementioned.
Off the top of my head, I can't think of a band anything like them. Certainly some tracks could be compared to other bands (The Black Amnesias - Sigur Ros, Mogwai) but the album as a whole is so varied it would be naive to try to pigeon-hole them.
Superb.
