And now the second album. For some reason, the Killers second has sold bucket loads despite being poor: overblown, derivative (nothing wrong with that, but it depends on your influences), patchy. The Bravery's second has sneaked out. Interest seems to have waned completely. They never did get good press, but it doesn't seem to have affected them. This album is really good.
From the start with a nice intro, guitars and then the keyboards subtly in the background, it sounded good. And it continues. Once again it is consistently good. They may have moved on a bit, but it is still clearly a relative of the first album.
Highlights: This is not the end, the Ocean, Time won't let me go.
Anyway, onto the Sun and the Moon which frankly is every bit as good as the first album. Its not as synth heavy but shows they have matured all round with sam endicots lyrics being much deeper than stuff like "Stop, Drop and roll" great song as it is.
The first single "Time Won't Let Me Go" is quite reprensentive of the album as whole much as "An Honest Mistake" did for The Bravery.
Much like the first album I like every single song on it not a dud in sight stand outs are the whistle fest "Bad Sun", "Angelina", "Everyword is a knife in my ear" and "Time Won't Let Me Go".
Great great album only shame is missing the three bonus tracks available from other surces.
In the time since The Bravery's self titled debut arrived to critical acclaim, the Killers have gone stratospheric, whilst other contemporaries Interpol can look forward to arena-sized tours around the UK later this year in spite of their low profile. The Bravery meanwhile took the backward step in April of playing university student unions and small clubs. Well, I was at the ULU show a few weeks ago and I can tell you this band are back with an absolute vengeance. Their 2005 debut was probably my most played album that year alongside A Certain Trigger, and this will definitely be the same. Thankfully, they're distancing themselves somewhat from the voguish fad of dressing up in eyeliner a la The Cure (or indeed, Endicott resembling a Morrissey tribute). The melodies on "The Sun And The Moon" are far more rounded this time, and the synth-pop is minimal. It sounds much more like a work the band are setting their own standards for, not for their label's marketing department.
"Every Word Is A Knife In My Ear" is an absolute beast of a song, reminiscent of the bouncy, arms-aloft shouty feel of "Fearless" but this time with a mosh-friendly bass.Read more ›
Given it one listen and it's better than I expected. I say that as I haven't fared very well on my indie buys this year, don't much like the new Killers album Sam's Town, don't much like the new Bloc Party etc. Its all a bit too "try hard forced" this years indie crop.
Been reading the "pro" reviews of this album and I see it's getting utterly panned, but I reckon ignore that, its just the music nerds being cooler than thou. The real test for me is if *I* like it. They can go root themsleves if they can't add to my enjoyment.
