There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
That's not to say they aren't fun anymore,they certainly are,but they now know so much more about making an album than they did and when you consider how good they sounded before,that's quite something.
Certainly they seem to have mellowed quite a bit on some tracks,but they are still very much the band we've become very fond off.
They can't just repeat the same formula and expect to get away with it,so they take this knowledge and use it to great effect. A band growing doesn't mean they become boring,they try different things whilst remaining true to themselves. There's plenty here to get fans singing along to live even if they don't sound quite so young,but they aren't so young,they have to change their sound a bit and they embrace that by recording an album for us to embrace.
They are due to support The Courteeners in Manchester come December. You will need that 20/30 minutes rest period before The Courteeners come out because you would have jumped your socks off by then. If you have tickets for this event then you are in for a double treat with The Courteeners and The View on the bill.
Brilliant album and brilliant live.
It is a bit more commercial than the earlier albums, and production definitely sounds a bit more professional than some of The View's previous stuff. Playing this made me go back to replay Bread and Circuses a few times - also a very good album.
However, if you are new to The View this album is a great introduction to a band with real energy.
Some of the tracks on Cheeky For A Reason are belters. I particularly like the first 6 tracks and "Don't Lean On My World".
I don't usually bother providing reviews but felt that this album is so good it is worth a plug.
