this is, without doubt, the single best album ever, ever produced. stunning.
first things first - the vocals. some say ian watkins' singing improved from FSOP to Start Something. if you ask me, the vocals on FSOP are so much better. they're full of raw emotion, powerful. yes, it is possible to get more raw emotion than in 'start something'. just plain awesome. and when DJ/backing vocalist jamie oliver (not the chef) comes in, it moves on to a whole different level again. if you like deep, meaningful lyrics, then you may not like this. but others among you will learn to love the beautiful obscurity of every word.
in fact, the entire musical line up is incredible. lee gaze on lead guitar is up along side the best guitarists ever (except hendrix himself). mike lewis on rhythm guitar gives the raw background sound to it all. stu richardson on bass has faster fingers than john wayne in a gunfight, and knows how to use them. mike chiplin is simply a drumming machine. and jamie olivers DJ work is mighty slick, as is his background singing.
so, the songs. 'shinobi vs dragonninja' is 2 minutes and 47 seconds of metal history. 'ode to summer' is wonderfully uplifting and immense. 'the handsom life of swing' is stunning blend of rollicking couruses, gentle verses and a sweet, melodic outro. 'a thousand apologies' contains one of the greatest guitar riffs ever. 'awkward' is a song built on foundations of pure fury. 'still laughing' is an excelent 'builder' of a song, growing in power and intensity ever secong. and the title track is a wonderful shot at those nasty corporate record company types. and then there's the rest.
if you're one of those people who liked 'last train home', and liked some songs on 'start something' but couldnt handle the heavier stuff, do not buy this.

I love this album. This album really is a breath of fresh air with some seriously good songs in here. 'Shinobi...' is 3 minutes of metal genius with a guitar loop that makes you want to punch your fist into the air as you headbang and is the highlight of the album with many others including 'The Fake Sound of Progress', 'And She Told Me To Leave' and 'Kobrakai' falling a very close second. Ian Watkins' voice sounds rather strange the first listen through, but has a piercing quality that rises above the frantic action in the background, and the harmonising is brilliant. This is an album which will surprise at first, and possibly make you question its place in your collection; but i promise that by the second listen through it will have found a comfortable niche in your musical heart.

Whoever said that LOSTPROPHETS were just another nu-metal band, trying to keep up with their American counterparts was a fool. This album stands to prove that. There is so much variety of music in this CD, ranging from screaming rage to mellow, 'kick-back and relax' beats. LOSTPROPHETS released 'Shinobi vs Dragon Ninja' as their debut single, they could've chosen any other on the album. The track 'fiveisafourletterword' stands out as one of the best songs i've heard in the last 10 years. It contains a mixture of heavy guitar riffs, calm singing and manic screaming. All the ingredients needed to make your heart beat a bit faster. It's also lyrically one of the best songs i've heard. One other song to rival this on the album is 'kobrakai'. This starts with a gentle guitar in the background, then grinds out one of the best intros u'll ever hear. Scratching and overdriven guitars never sounded so good. Again, the song manages to mix screaming and singing superbly, making it an awesome track.
Of course there are 9 other tracks, but there's not enough space to talk about them 2! Basically, the album is brilliant, all the songs are brilliant and you should go and buy it now.....GO ON!!!

This is the Lost Prophets with their debut 11 track album 'The Fake Sound Of Progress' which blows you away. It contains all sorts of different tunes from the album titled song to 'Ode To Summer' and if you like repetitive albums this isn't for you.
The most standout tracks are 'Five Is A Four Letter Word', 'Kobrakai' and 'Handsome Life Of Swing'
I first really got into this band after their excellent set at Ozzfest 2002 where I crowd-surfed twice!
The next day I rushed out and brought the album and WOW!
For a start the singing by Ian Watkins and Jamie Oliver (no not the chef!)is great...
The DJ-ing,guitar riffs,drumming and Singing makes Lost Prophets what they are.
Here is my track by track view:
1)Shinobi VS. Dragon Ninja - the track is a great way to start a rocking album. This was their first single they released. Great!
2)Fake Sound Of Progress - the second single released by the band isn't as great as their first but still Jamie saves it with some head throbbing screams towards the end as it fades into a mellow tune.
3)Five Is A Four Letter Word - an excellent intro mixed by Jamie as the guitars kick in this is my 2nd favourite song on the album just behind 'Handsome Life Of Swing'
4)......She Told Me To Leave - this is one of LP's more mellow tracks but is once again excellent due to the riffs and Ian's soft vocals which rise in the chorus.
5)Kobrakai - One of the most catchy tunes with a great fade-in intro this is fantatstic and should be the next single. The vocalists' excellent singing in the chorus makes it extremely moshable!
