Amazing album from one of the most adventurous and imaginative groups around. Mixing ripping rock with erratic electro the songs are a collection of funny yet dark, driving yet fresh examples of what can be done if a little time and thought and skill are put in.

Cracking album

I originally saw this band at Reading Festival and they blew my socks off. I got home, and immediatly brought the album.

To hear the tracks that I had gone crazy to live, Doomed Now, Lets Make Out, Rockstars to name a few are just as crisp, and are truely Rock and Dance crossed over in genius fasion

Where this album faulters, is the Jekyll and Hyde like faces of this Album. The one side is the Rocking tracks, the other are the more sombre (not slow) tracks, which sound kinda similar, Making you wonder, did they run out of ideas? I hope not, as they really are a cracking new british band.

Awesome awesome album.
Having downloaded weird science and we are rockstars some time back, i decided that Leeds Fest was the time to finally see them. They were immense. Not what i was expecting either. I get the feeling most of the people in the tent didnt know what was going on, but most loved it.
I cant get enough of high energy music (sounds naff written here), i always want to hear something that sounds like the band has loved every minute of what they were doing and put everything into it. This has it, all of it, everything!
Let's make out is my stand-out track, but it's all excellent. I quite like hadouken because they are stupid and arent ashamed of making something to fill a hole (music-wise), but they arent a patch on these guys.
As many people have already said 'This is real Nu-rave' or at least what it should be!

Brought this Album because I originally downloaded it illegally when i was younger and have felt dirty ever since. It was also one of my favourite albums. Well worth a listen

stupid effin name, they sound like something nathan barley would say and hence would be cool in the capital if we were 3 years prior. In spite of this comes good tunes, highly recommended, and so far not ruined by that little kid down the road who copies what i like. (this may only apply to me).

First of all, can I just repeat the message - if you get a chance to see them live, go! They turn up on stage looking 19, with hoodies, keyboards, guitars etc and just bring so much energy. Blew me away.

Anyway, the album is a bit of a mix. You've got nu-rave electronic mash ups like Battle Royal, We Are Rockstars and Let's Make Out, which are just great. Air meets Chemical Brothers meets Prodigy. Guitars, decks, samples, effects all over the vocals. Inventive, fresh, just exciting new music. Beating the Klaxons out of sight. And then you've got boy band pop punk tunes like Dawn of the Dead and Being Bad. It's an odd mix. An identity crisis being played out on record. Most of it is really good but the odd couple of tunes just don't fit, and are a bit lame really, imho.

I just hope that they go the hardcore route and don't sell out.

Oh, and go see them live. :)

forget klaxons and hadouken!, this is the real deal.

the best thing I can describe it as is electro-punk, not dissimilar to fat of the land era prodigy, or perhaps some of the KLF's more rockier moments
This is a truly great album with some great songs which are almost guaranteed to make you want dance, for example we are rockstars, weird science, with a heavy heart etc.

The only criticism I can make is that some of the songs feel a bit, well, poppy. Dawn of the dead and being bad feels pretty good both feel a bit out of place on an album as fierce as this one. but don't let this put you off, as the rest of the tracks are absolute stormers, and if they are playing anywhere near you SEE THEM. Their live show is second to none.

By The Wolf TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 31 Mar. 2008
Format: Audio CD
Mr Badger arrived at the cave entrance this afternoon in a state of high agitation. His cousin from Reading had visited earlier in the day bringing with him as a gift a copy of Does It Offend You Yeah's new album
'You Have No Idea What You're Getting Yourself Into'.

Having listened to it once (perhaps a little too loudly for a first hearing) he discovered to his dismay that several large cracks had opened up in the ceiling of his usually secure and commodious sett.

Upon his cousin's departure he had come immediately to seek my advice.

The Wolf is pleased to report that no such destructive events have repeated themselves in the cave.

From the skittering opening beats and synthesiser of 'Battle Royale' to the anthemic closure of 'Epic Last Song' the ten numbers contained in this fine album give every reason for these upstanding young gentlemen from Reading to be very proud indeed.

I cannot believe that any offence was intended by the release of these stirring compositions and certainly none has been taken.

Indeed, the presence of a lesbian octopus in track 6 should be held up as a noteworthy example of equal opportunity promotion in the animal kingdom.

Unlike Mr Badger I would reccommend listening to this album at levels exceeding 120 decibels to experience its' full (and I feel sure) intended effect.

A splendid first showing chaps.

Life in the Home Counties is clearly looking up !
