Funeral For A Friend - Hours - Cd
The second album from Funeral For A Friend confirms that the spirit of emotional hardcore is alive and well in the valleys of South Wales. Hailed by the band as a darker follow-up to their 2003 debut, Hours strays from the time-honoured boy-meets-girl, boy-loses-girl template, with vocalist Matt Davies tackling topics like domestic abuse, alcoholism and the death of friends on tracks like "Roses For The Dead" and "History".
Somewhat disappointingly, theres less vocal input from drummer Ryan Richards, whose gutsy death-metal howls always proved the perfect foil for Davies sensitive, pitch-perfect tones. Its not quite enough to unbalance Funerals perfect balance between sweetness and savagery, mind: for every "Drive" a chiming, lighters-out moment that sounds unnervingly, towards the end, like Bright Eyes theres a raging, thrash-tinged "The End Of Nothing" that reminds you exactly why Funeral For A Friend are still more vital, important, and plain enjoyable than 95% of the other nu-emo bands out there. --Louis Pattison

However the more I have listened the more I have fallen in love with this album. The catchy metal guitar riffs are still here along with Matt Davies soaring vocals. I understand the complaints about it sounding 'samey' ,the lack of screams from drummer Ryan Richards and i do miss them, but to be honest with them it would have sounded very similar to the first album.I can especially appreciate some of the more mellow offerings on the album including personal fav "History".
Overall i think it works better as a collection of songs that their previous effort, definately a much more polished and mature sound expressed in emotional lyrics.
Highlights include the 1st single "Streetcar", "Hospitality" and "Alavez" , but to be honest their isnt a bad track.
I hope fans can appreciate this release as a step foward rather than stepping back.
You gotta get this!
Casually Dressed And Deep In Conversation was utterly fantastic. The perfect balance between hard riffs and controlled screaming married with an ear for a tune and soaring chorus', it burrowed its way into your head before you could do anything about it. It was an album of such promise, the only way was up for the young upstarts from Wales. The intensity was present in their live shows more than anything, a veritable whirlwind of excitement on stage.
And it is live where I hope Hours will truly come alive. Because on record, it just seems a little subdued. This may well be to alot of peoples tastes - easier on the ear, many may get more enjoyment from this LP. But not me.
First single Streetcar is a fine song, due to the fact it could sit on their debut easily. Likewise, opener All The Rage is a wonderful opening gambit, full to the brim with classic melodies and a speed that instills an adrenaline rush inside you. Track 3, Roses For The Dead is similar. Too similar. Which is part of the albums problem. A good chunk of it is just a little too samey. True, the 1st album also suffered from this a little, but one would expect the creases to have been ironed out by now, such was their promise.
End Of Nothing, however, almost sounds like an impoverished child of death metal, such is the speed and cheese of it's opening guitar.Read more ›
Who could forget Streetcar?
I love the album because I can relate to it, the lyrics reflect my emotions which means sometimes it makes me cry and at others it makes me smile. My favourite song is Alvarez because the lyrics, "You took and killed everything about me" has to be the best line ever and its the perfect comeback to someone who has broken your heart.
It has to be one of the best albums of last year and I looked forward to the next. Both their albums in fact are absolute class and should not be written off as emo but experimental because they are ten million times better than MCR and all that other unoriginal crap in the charts which is considered as "music". This is music.
Classic songs off Hours include the first single 'streetcar', one of the best songs of 2005, and the beautifully moving 'drive.' There is a diverse range of tracks on here, ranging from the slow, tragic melodies to pure, heavy guitar riffs that you cannot ignore. I would recommend this for any FFAF fans, and it serves as a great introduction to their work. Oh, and if you ever get a chance, go and see them live...they're one of the most amazing and lovely people to go and witness doing what they do best...ROCKING OUT! just buy it, you need this album.
They have kept the rapid guitars and some old school riffs, keeping the british spirit whilst matts vocals both tuneful and easy on the ears adds heart and emotion to the tuneful soul of the guitars and drums.
All in all, a few listens and it hits the spot. A few more and you pick out the lyrics. It will keep you listening.
