5.0 out of 5 stars Wow !!!! British album of the year ?, 17 April 2007
This review is from: Ten New Messages (Audio CD)
Fantastic effort. After all the brilliant albums from across the pond this year (Kings of Leon and Arcade Fire), this is where the UK strikes back.

Forget the overhyped Arctic Monkeys (great lyrics, no tunes), this is a superb album. Here is what I think of each song;

1 - The World was a mess..... Just a superb song. Brilliant "english" lyrics and driving bass. Wonderful opener. Deserves to be a massive hit and is leagues on from the Arctic Monkeys

2 - Little Superstitions. Another excellent tune with a lovely guitar hook over it. Superb chorus. Again, deserves to be a massive hit

3 - We danced together - The first single and takes awhile to get going. However 2/3rds of the way in when the drums and bass combine with the snarled words "we didnt give a s*** about....." is brilliant.

4 - Trouble. Brilliant dirty guitar intro and then the pounding bass kicks in. Sit still to this, I dare ya !! Sounds English and Punky. Brilliant !!

5 - Suspicios Eyes. This is a massive song. Showing the two sides of life in London today. Rapping sections from both sides of the fence. White flight and a brown guy with a bag. The band have taken a big risk with this song as it could have been so cheesy. But this works and is a masterpiece. Says it all about London today.

6 - On a mission. Argeuably the weakest song here. Still good though and no filler.

7 - Down with the Moonlight. Brilliant. Bet this is smoking live. Sounds edgy and prowling. Great song.

8 - When Tom Cruise Cries. My least favourite on the album. Cant get into it. Reading the reviews though, everyone else loves it.

9 - Time to stop talking. My favourite song. Brilliant bassline and superb chorus. Wonderful track !!

10 - Leave the City and Come Home. Just magic. Slighty slower and wonderul lyrics. Love it and great end to the album.

Buy this album. Its an absolute cracker.
