Most of you probably haven't heard of Bell X1 before, so before we get to the album itself, a quick potted history: once upon a time there was juniper, and juniper were good. Unfortunately there was a split and Damien Rice went solo. Paul Noonan emerged from behind the drumkit to take over vocal duties (don't worry, not at all like Phil Collins), and Bell X1 were born. This is actually their second album, but their first with Island.
Whilst the debut album ‘Neither am I’ had some fine moments, it didn’t function as a cohesive unit. This, however, is the sound of a band at the height of their powers, and those heights are really quite high. If you like Radiohead, dEUS or Coldplay, you’ll find this album staying in your cd player for a long time to come. The first real highlight of the album is ‘Alphabet Soup’, the song that will do for the banjo what ‘Losing my Religion’ did for the mandolin. And, lets face it, any song that namechecks Maud Gonne (WB Yeats’ muse) can’t be bad. Daybreak could easily have sat in the middle of ‘A Rush Of Blood…’ and not looked out of place.
‘Eve, the apple of my eye’ is the first of the epic ballads, about a love gone wrong (aren’t they all?) It’s a showcase of the fantastic lyrics that the boys come up on a regular basis, as Paul Noonan reflects that ‘The only thing we share / Is the same sky’. ‘West of her spine’ is a nice piece of country hokum, with someone who sounds like Lee Hazelwood doing backing vocals…
‘Tongue’, which may be familiar to some of you from it’s airplay on The Amp is another stand-out track.

A gorgeous record that really is the 'find' of the summer! While The Thrills are the Irish band attracting maximum media attention right now (in the English press at least), Bell X1 (named after the first plane to break the sound barrier) are cutting a swathe themselves and, if I were a betting man, I'd suggest, are the better bet for the long haul. This is the 'Bellies' second album and some seven years since lead singer Paul Noonan teamed up with Damien Rice in Juniper. The time has been spent well. Noonan is a consumate talent. With a voice that can both soar and linger awhile, Noonan leads a band that combines an uptempo rock presence with a distinct sense of melancholy. Compare the fraught, jagged beat of White Water Song with the langourous and beautiful swoon of Eve, The Apple of My Eye, and you'll see what I mean. But both styles combine effortlessly to create a marvellous whole, so much so that Music in Mouth comes across as a perfectly crafted record. Over and above the recorded material, Bell X1 are also cracking live. Catch them, and this album now, in the future you'll have to look beyond the sound barrier to get close to them.

I saw this band at Reading this year, on the smallest stage in the middle of Friday afternoon, and they were the best band I saw all weekend.
I went straight out and bought their album, and it has been in my CD player ever since. It is one of those rare albums where every song is good. They cover an interesting range of styles but keep their own identity throughout. A nice blend of indie, rock, Irish folk, and electronica.
A lot of effort has been put into this album, and it is certainly one of the best I've heard this year.

i'll be honest. when i went to see Keane play live i had never heard of bell x1 but was blown away by them. in my opinion there live performence was better than Keane's and that says something. so the next day i immediatly rushed out to buy the album, still knowing very little about them but knowing there would at least be a couple of good tracks on the album (eve and i'll see your heart). the first thing i noticed was that it was produced by the now-famous Jamie cullum and that the lead singer and senior song writer, noonan, was the same man that was in Juniper with Damien Rice, who is also involved on the album, co-writing on Tongue. if you have just heard Eve then you will be expecting touching and clever lyrics with superb melodies and you certainly get that on this album but you also get much more. the first two tracks, Snakes And Snakes and alphabet soup both have a touch of a young radiohead. they both have catchy melodies and amusing and witty lyrics with comments such as "i need to smile like im pissing in your swimming pool" and "i'd say you'd like chiledren but you couldn't eat a whole one" you realise the song writing ability of noonan coupled with a brilliant sense of humour. Alphabet soup also offers you the one thing missing from indie rock these days - a banjo solo!!. after this we have the first of a couple of album songs in daybreak which is frankly too dull for my taste. then there is Eve, probably the best track on the album and one i find difficult to describe, a genuinely touching song with clever lyrics that you'll want to keep listening to. this is followed by Next To You, an average song, but more up beat than Eve which finishes with the superd lyric "i'm not over you, can i get back under".Read more ›
