Written and recorded in part in Montmartre by Courteeners talismanic singer/songwriter Liam Fray last autumn, Concrete Love is the band's most rounded and satisfying record to date - its release coincides perfectly with a moment when they reach the peak of their live powers. The album sees the band working again with regular collaborator/producer Joe Cross (Hurts/Chloe Howl).
In the six years since they released their sharp and underrated debut St Jude - a pinpoint accurate portrayal of young life- the band have risen steadily with a quiet confidence. Each of their albums has gone Top 10 - St. Jude (no.4), Falcon (no.6), ANNA (no.6) - and the growth in their live shows has been exponential and astonishing. In 2013, Courteeners quickly sold out gig tickets outside of festival appearances in the UK - including Brixton Academy and Manchester Arena. In August, the band play as special guests of the Killers at Bellahouston Park in Glasgow before headlining the NME stage at Reading and Leeds Festivals.

'Falcon' sounded different to Jude and 'Anna' showed a change again. 'Concrete Love' does exactly what you want from an album and it keeps you guessing. I've got my favourite tracks ('How Good It Was' and 'Small Bones'), my go to songs, then I change my mind and fall completely in love with another track ('Beautiful Head'). But, that's why I love the album: they're all my favourites.
For those lucky enough to have the deluxe version, the DVD recording of the Castlefield Bowl gig is amazing. Memories were made that night: Concrete Love will fit right in to the brilliant gigs (as it did at Liverpool O2 on album release day) and I'm certainly glad this album is on my playlist.
You've done it again, lads: here come the young men.
Although I know there are some out there who do not like this band I always enjoy them especially as they create a very full and rich sound that is guitar led. This is a big sound that is always worth listening to. There is nothing new here, the band have found their particular niche in the market and are not about to change it, and to be honest if people like what you are already doing there is no need to fix something that isn’t broken.
So what you have here is the original album that did so well, plus a selection of acoustic recordings of some of the tracks. To be honest if you already have the original you may not want this as well, but this does show that this band can keep it simple and are very effective at a more trimmed down sound. Next year this band will be one of the top acts at the Leeds Festival.
If your just finding this band do yourself a favour, buy St Jude and Falcon instead.
Shame as they have had such limited success and I don't see any of these album tracks making the grade.
