Format: Audio CD
Tragedy comes in many forms, and with every listen of "Guitar Romantic" you realise that we have been robbed of a band that were quite literally about to explode through a tragic accident. From start to finish, this is an album to cherish for many reasons - its tunes, its lyrics and its overall feel. Introduce someone to the album without telling them who it is or when it was recorded, and they would be forgiven for thinking that it was one of punk's great lost albums of the late '70's. This is indie music as it should be - short and to the point - the 10 songs here last a little over 28 minutes and every single one is a classic. RIP Exploding Hearts - gone but never forgotten.

As a previous reviewer mentioned, this album comes across like a classic of the 70s. This is by no means a criticism, though, as with songs this good it doesn't matter where you draw your inspiration from.

From the moment 'Modern Kicks' screeches out of the speakers this album grabs you by the throat and refuses to let go. 'I'm A Pretender' goes straight for the gut and its instantly hummable chorus really does sound timeless. 'Sleeping Aides and Razorblades' and 'Boulevard Trash' are among the other highlights.

If you're a fan of buzz saw guitars and boisterous vocal harmonies then this album should definitely appeal to you. Admittedly, the bands tragic demise has probably affected the way this album will be viewed but it really is an excellent piece of work, whether you know the story of the Exploding Hearts or not.
