A week after I received this album I have listened to nothing else. It has taken pride of place in my car and is on continuously. This is intelligent melodic rock music. The vocal perfomance is excellent and the songwriting very impressive. It has hooks a-plenty and there is nothing at all pretentious about the instrumentation. Guitars, drums and keyboards really well executed with no unnecessary flourishes - beautifully understated but somehow dynamic at the same time. The arrangements are mostly medium paced with a few slower ones thrown in. In terms of catchiness, they all are although the one I have in my head when I'm not in my car is track 2 'THE LUCKY ONE'. For thought provoking lyrics try 'EVEN NOW'.
Why only 4 stars I here you ask. Well I no longer give top marks as easily as I used to and this loses 1 star because it is not particularly original in style and perhaps lacks the odd surprise. Still brilliant though.
