5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, Quintessentially British Album, 8 May 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Braveface (Audio CD)
It's these times of bland, almost dishonest sounding, lazy music, there is a small glimmer of hope....Esser. Somewhere between 1996 and 2009 British music has lost it's Britishness and become a turgid industry. Britpop was seen as a fad by the evil media, when infact, it was good old honest British music - not overly clever or grand or complicated - just good music.

Esser reminds me of the days of early Blur, and to some extent Elastica. This isn't as rocky or hard as these two bands were but the cheekiness and honesty of the music is certainly similar.

'Headlock' is superb but the rest of the songs are all good in thier own right and work well together as an album. I would have liked a couple more songs, and can't understand why excellent b-sides 'Maybe in the morning' & 'Long Arms' have not been added to push the album to 40 minutes, but maybe in 2009 people can't concentrate on an album that's more than 10 songs?
I hope this album inspires more people to create similar music, as more is needed. Long live Brit-pop!!!

I've just been on itunes and i'm a little peeved at the fact that if you download the album you get 2 extra songs - 'Baby it's boring' and 'Long arms'. What the heck is that all about?
