2.0 out of 5 stars Please let me off this conveyer.........., 5 Dec. 2007
This review is from: The State Of Things (Audio CD)
I was really looking forward to this album, there was the Arctic Monkeys links, the hype, the bravado etc and god was I disappointed. It starts well enough with The State of Things, The Machine and then the storming single Heavyweight Champion....but it all goes a bit wrong from there. Samey tunes, more lyrics about going out, getting girls, having an argument with 'yer bird' in fact everything thats been done a hundred times already by every new band to surface in the past 12 months. The Reverend himself doesn't have the same knack at a lyric as Alex Turner does no matter how hard he tries, and god does he try. I apologise for making any sort of comparison with the A.M. but its difficult not to when Alex Turner is actually on the album and when the Reverend himself tries to write in a similar way. In fact 'Sex with your ex' is the Monkeys 'Despair in the departure lounge' but nowhere near as good. Serously there are some awful schoolyard lyrics/tunes on here it actually gets quite embarrassing.
A fine example of someone making it big purely on the quality of his mates......anyone wanna buy 2 tickets ?
