Have seen this band twice this year (Chester Rocks & Wolverhampton) and if you think this and their other albums are great wait until you see them belt the tunes out. Their delivery reduced the audience to carnage.

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.

Don't often write reviews but felt this album deserved a mention. I have always found The View a bit hit or miss but they are a local outfit and I like to support local bands.

This is by far the best set of songs they have produced (this is only my opinion remember) , there is some very good lyrical content, a more grown up sound and a lot of catchy tunes. The same raw guitar and drumming are evident but there are also very polished songs on here. The hooks are very good with repetitive choruses that have you singing along.

I think the boys from Dryburgh have matured musically and this is a highly recommended album, the kind that you will play once but keep coming back to listen to again and again. Not a throwaway for sure.

The first thing you notice on this 4th offering from THE VIEW is how much they've grown,matured if you will.
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.

I've been a fan of these four men from Scotland since I first heard the infectious piece of perfect indie-pop-rock that was the hit single 'Same Jeans'. I've followed them closely, buying all three albums and loving everyone, the latter two demonstrated a more mature and grown-up sound, but The View's fourth album, released in 2012, might possibly be there best one thus far.

Although none of the singles troubled the charts, the album itself gained a very healthy top ten position, proving that the big fan base is still there after half a decade. The lads enlisted Mike Crossey's talents as producer. He has produced records for Keane, Razorlight, Razorlight, and more recently, Jake Bugg's debut album, so it should come as no surprise that production of 'Cheeky For A Reason' is very polished and professional.

There are the usual excellent, trademark up-tempo tracks here, and none more so than the excellent opener 'How Long' and the next few tracks that follow, which are guaranteed to make you feel good and get you moving. There are also a fine 'Piano Interlude', and some mellow ballads that the band have occasionally dabbled with the past. If you enjoy quirky, but intelligently written tunes that are as catchy as anything, I don't think you can beat The View, and the sound of Kyle Falconer's unmistakeably Scottish vocals. 'The Clock' is a particularly strong song, that was rightly released as a single, but wrongly made no impact chart-wise.

The View have a new album scheduled for a release this September, and I'm looking forward to having yet more music from these very talented Scottish men.

This is a great CD. It is unusual to buy an album these days with so many terrific tracks.
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.

With a serious lack of any good indie/guitar bands around, it's amazingly refreshing that Cheeky For A Reason is both exciting and proves that they are getting better and better, as each new album comes out.The stand out tracks are How Long, Bunker, AB, Hole In The Bed (very Libtertinesque!) and the brilliant surprise that is Tacky Tattoo. Normally nowadays, its a surprise to get 3 good tracks - this album is jam packed with up-lifting, energetic brilliance.The View are still very much on fire, so grab Cheeky For A Reason now!
