5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Promising Start, 2 Jun 2006
This review is from: Waterloo to Anywhere (Audio CD)
This album is a very impressive debut, from half of the UK's best band.

Carl has truly embraced the Libertines' split, and used it as inspiration for Dirty Pretty Things 'Waterloo To Anywhere' . The songs are catchy, the guitar riffs are hypnotic, and as always, Carl's vocals are packed with emotional lyrics, and witty one-liners.

Like I say, and will always say, the Libertines could never be recreated by one half of the charismatic front men, but this is not a bad effort.

Dirty Pretty Things definately sound more like the Libertines than Babyshambles, which may appeal to some fans, and I feel that is why Babyshambles have had a hard time. (even though Down In Albion is a fantastic album!)

Personally, I believe both bands are hugely talented. If I had to choose, I'd be pushed to go with Babyshambles, just because I think that Pete will always carry the spirit of the Albion.
That aside, I feel the best songs on this album are 'Bang Bang You're Dead ' (although I know some fans thought it went too commercial), 'Gin and Milk', 'The Enemy' and 'Deadwood'.

Whatever your opinion, this album is superb and deserves to be bought. Both bands have done well, but I think Dirty Pretty Things may be more popular with the "commercial market" than Babyshambles.

I dont really know what else to say, so just buy it and witness excellence personified.

Long Live The Libertines!
