5.0 out of 5 stars 1 star - you just HAVE to be kidding don't you!, 8 Feb 2007
This review is from: Return To Cookie Mountain (Audio CD)
I just don't get the negative feedback for this. I've held off writing a review because it seemed so self-evident to me that this was a good album and I find it difficult to believe anyone can find that much wrong with it. 1 star - you just HAVE to be kidding don't you!

As it stand this is a great collection of songs fantastically performed. Original? Yes I'd say so though I'm not that much into Bloc Party that I actually bother to listen to them too much! As for this being one of the best albums of last year? Okay so this is always going to be contentious but you only have to look at the near universal presence of this album on end of year lists to believe that most critics/listeners can't be that wrong!

Great track to start with in "I Was A Lover" and this is continued with "Hours" next up. Undoubtedly the highlight (Wolf Like me) comes in the middle so if anything it does suffer from this being a premature high. But this track IS excellent - moves along like an express train but doesn't suffer from getting louder as it gets faster - a common fault. "Let The Devil In" is another stormer - I just don't get that it goes off completely after "Wolf". "Dirtywhirl" is another great track - if this is derivative please tell me from whom...I can't think of anything.

Overall this IS one of the best albums of last year - without doubt. It really has grown on me. Give it a chance and don't let the naysayers rule your life! (9/10)
