180 gram audiophile vinyl / Insert / First pressing on numbered black vinyl

About the Artist

'Costello Music' is the debut album by Scottish indie rock band The Fratellis. Originally released in 2006, the album was a great commercial success. The album had five single releases of which 'Chelsea Dagger' was the most successful one. It peaked at #5 in the UK and #4 in the Netherlands. The album also performed very well in the album charts, peaking at #2 in the UK Albums Chart and spending 83 weeks in the Top 100. As a result of the international success the band toured extensively, playing shows in Europe, the United States and Japan. In 2007 the band won the BRIT award for Best British Breakthrough Act. The beautiful re-issue of this much requested vinyl release is pressed on 180 gram audiophile vinyl, with the first 2000 copies being individually numbered and pressed on dark green transparent vinyl.

From playing their first gig in 2005 to chart success in 2006 The Fratellis have come a long way in a short space of time. And that reason is Costello Music.

Costello Music has such an electic mix of upbeat songs that you will leaving you humming their tunes hours after you've listened to the album. Perhaps going as far back to the Seahorses' 1997 album Do It Yourself, has an album been so upbeat with rich guitar rifts and lyrics that have no need to try and be cool, with Fa la la's littering tracks, Jon, Barry and Mince have bucked the trend of neo punk bands and given us music straight from the gut.

Every track on this album is a feel good track. Unlike most other new artists The Fratellis have decided not to record an album in one genre, even though you'd have to stick it in the Indie section of the record store. Instead they have gone with music they like and what makes them feel good.

The Fratellis influences have been well noted including the Clash and Terrorvision, which you can spot in Everybody Knows You Cried Last Night, but there's definitely other influences you can spot, namely in the track Doginabag there's shades of John Squire's guitar rifts from The Stone Roses and some 70's glam rock ala T-Rex in the track Baby Fratelli.

The whole album doesn't flow in the traditional sense. Normally an albums' track order would be scrupulously planned, but there was no need for that on Costello Music, the whole album order really falls over itself, but in a good way, it just works.

If you want uncompromising music that will have all the music press raving about then buy The Artic Monkeys album. If you want sing-a-long at the top of your voice down the motorway feel good uplifting guitar rock then buy The Fratellis, Costello Music.

5 Stars.

I first heard them on Radio One - where they were being hyped to death - and thought "here we go latest indie flavour of the month". But that Chelsea Dagger song was pretty catchy you know...

So I though what the hey I'll check it out and Wow! This album is quite frankly superb.

Every song has a slightly different style from full on punk rock in the vein of the Clash, Undertones, Buzzcocks etc to whistful acoustic numbers, theres also dashes of blues and ska in there too; and all wrapped up with fistfuls of hooks that'll have you singing along before you know it. Each song has its own little narrative going and have some absolute gems of lyrics in there. Most indie albums I find, tend to have great singles but the albums are samey and uninspiring, but for The Fratellis nearly all of these songs would make great singles and although I haven't seen them, I think they could be a great live band too.

I love it and at the moment it's my most listened to album and easily in my top 3 of the year so far. Check it out.

Close to 50, I am probably one of the oldest people to review this album. And while a previous reviewer has pointed out they have not done anything particularly new, they have done what they do particularly well. This is an amazing album, it has not been out of my car's cd player since I got the car last september, it has hardly been off my cd player at home, it is simply one of the best albums I have ever heard. I just have to say that anyone who does not find Costello Music one of the best albums they have heard does not appreciate music. It is one of those albums that has to be an essential part of the collection for anyone who claims to like music. Sorry, but I cannot praise Costello Music enough. The challenge to the Fratellis will be trying to follow it up. Good luck on that front, guys, you'll need it....

Album of the year? A big claim I know, but one which the Fratellis might claim with some conviction. A serious contender to the "Whatever People Say I Am..." for that distinction, "Costello Music" is a magnificent surprise.

Having greatly enjoyed the three singles so far, I must admit to approaching with some trepidation - but am happy to report that these three are by no means the only great tracks here, and not even the best. Naturally "Henrietta" would be a storming opening for any album, but the pace and energy is maintained through the first half. The exception - in terms of a change of pace - is the "ballad" (inverted commas as I'm not sure the Fratellis entirely "do" ballads), "Whistle for the Choir" - which although it demonstrates a definite naivety with slower songs, improves with repeated listening.

For me, in contrast to the previous reviewer, the album peaks in the middle. "For The Girl" is a marvellous track, the best example of what the Fratellis do best - fast, hi-energy, jangly-guitar pop. This is immediately followed by the frankly sublime "Doginabag".

Does the album lose momentum after "Creepin' Up The Backstairs"? Maybe a little, with the exception of "Everybody Knows..." - until the last track. "Ole Black `n' Blue Eyes" is arguably the best offering here, and revisits Chelsea (who herself gets a nod in the sleeve notes). It's a little off-beat, and absolutely the perfect finale.

Influences? Too many to count - you could name Oasis, The Libertines (who couldn't?), but also many others, riffs borrowed from acts as diverse as The Beatles and Aztec Camera (really).
