This review is from: Amplifier [Digipak] (Audio CD)
This is, quite simply, a wonderful album. Some of you may have heard the magnificent album by Oceansize, Effloresce (which is also essential)- if you like that, you'll love this. Im not sure whether it has something to do with the fact that both Amplifier and Oceansize are from Manchester and are friends, but the truth is, this is brilliant music.
My favourite songs are Motorhead, Panzer, Old Movies and The Consultancy, but this album flows with such consistency that it's impossible not to just listen to it all in one go, again and again. If you love loud rock music, look no further. And even if you like softer music, this has some pretty excellent melodies. I dont know if you can even compare this to other bands, Amplifier play it their own way. Maybe you could say they are a cross between Tool, Cave In, Hundred Reasons, Pink Floyd, Audioslave, and Radiohead. But that's as close as I can get. Listen for yourself.
