WICKED - BUT BETTER LIVE!,
This review is from: Capture / Release (Audio CD)
Being a big indie fan, I was always curious about hearing The Rakes, but didnt really get round to it. However, I recently saw them live supporting Franz Ferdinand, and fell in love with them instantly. I had only heard one rakes song prior this gig, and I still found it an amazing experience!
After the concert I immediately went and purchased the album, and I was not disappointed. The tunes are all so catchy, with some amazing talent involved from all band members.
The only downfall I felt is that the album sounds A LOT better live, but maybe thats the case with many bands.
All in all though, this is an essential buy for any self respecting indie fan. Just make sure you see them live to achieve the ultimate experience!
