3.0 out of 5 stars One Way to Celebrate an Anniversary, 20 May 2007
This review is from: Favourite Worst Nightmare (Audio CD)
Well, it's only been a year and I haven't tired of the original yet but here's another effort from our Monkeys; and whilst it's a less powerful and edgy record than the first, it's still evidence of a band hard at work.

There isn't a killer track like 'I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor' or 'When the Sun Goes Down', but 'Brianstorm', 'Balaclava', '505' and 'Fluorescent Adolescent' all hold their own, and the quirky sense of humour and charm evident on last year's release is celebrating its anniversary in style here.

The music is more or less the same but milder - and therefore lacking the tremendous clout of the original. 'Only One Who Knows' - the soft song - is a bit drab and 'This House is a Circus' is a lazy piece of songwriting. However, I don't complain when a band releases a second album this quickly, especially when the good songs outweigh the bad. Give it a bit longer next time, lads, and give us a double third album!

Newbies: get the first album first. Fans: get involved.
