THE ENEMY Music For The People (2009 UK 10-track CD album including the single No Time For Tears and Sing When Youre In Love picture sleeve in a hype stickered jewel case)
If the title hadn’t already given it away, the appropriately heavy opener "Elephant Song" makes their intentions clear from the off. Music For The People is a big stadium ready rock album, miles from the relatively parochial approach of the Enemy’s chart-topping 2007 debut We’ll Live and Die In These Towns. That record’s downbeat lyrical approach rankled with some, who wondered just what a band of young men who left school to sign a record deal were so grumpy about. But it was full of good tunes. And the Enemy remain aggrieved--the sparky, piano-led "51st State" bemoans a fading democracy while the witty "Be Somebody" is the sharpest comment on Britain’s enduring class system in years, echoed by the thumping closer "Silver Spoon". Cheerful they are not. The heroically resigned "Keep Losing" bears the definitive Enemy song title. Even the catchy "Sing When You’re In Love" is as gloomy as Glasvegas. Music For The People isn’t perfect. "Last Goodbye" could fit seamlessly on any Richard Ashcroft record--not a strong recommendation--and "Nation of Checkout Girls" lifts its melody straight from Pulp’s classic "Common People". But as an exercise in populism, a record that manages to combine the rowdiest moments of the Clash and Jam with the proven commercial potential of Stereophonics (and some slick harmonies oddly evocative of old Def Leppard tunes), Music For The People actually lives up to its title. --Steve Jelbert

I saw then live at T in the Park last year and was highly impressed, I know that songs like "Elephant Song" and "No Time For Fears" would only improve their live show, they are energetic and thumping songs which are brilliant to listen to.
Whilst lacking the instantly catchy, 'angry' anthems that were all over the first, 'Music For The People' does contain some good tunes like the flop single 'Be Somebody', amongst a blatant rip-off of Pulp's '90s anthem 'Common People' with the song 'Nation of Checkout Girls, The Jam's 'London Calling' is also shamelessly reworked with 'Don't Break The Red Tape', and most obvious of all is the track 'Last Goodbye, which is basically Blur's mega hit 'The Universal' re-written and re-named. You have to give these lads some credit for their nerve, but did they really think that we wouldn't notice?
Whilst 'Music For The People' often lacks the power, passion, and originality of the first, it's still a fun listen if you enjoy straight-forward indie-rock music, even if it does sometimes feel like an albums of covers.
The Jam's second LP was poor also so The Enemy have time to pull this round and I think they will.
Well, they've opted for the latter and I have to say I'm VERY disappointed.
This offering is really Overproduced and the songs lack the fire of the first CD.
The major problem is the blatent stealing from other bands!
Ok, all bands "borrow" the odd riff or melody line from other songs, (thats how music progresses after all)but this takes the biscuit!
ELEPHANT SONG = Listen! remind you of the start of a certain OASIS Album?....
LAST GOODBYE = Great Song.. but is it Richard Ashcroft singing? TOTAL VERVE RIPOFF! + even more obviously the chorus is THE UNIVERSAL by BLUR! try it! sing along!
NATION OF CHECKOUT GIRLS = Come on.. it's COMMON PEOPLE by PULP. Scandalous!
DON'T BREAK THE RED TAPE = Oh God . Stop! The verses are blatently LONDON CALLING by the CLASH.
Music for the people? more like STOLEN FROM THE BANDS.
Hope they made lots of money from the first CD, they'll need it for the court actions...

Not as indie as first cd but still worth a listen, couple of great songs on it! Was a bargain too.Published on 4 Jun. 2014 by Ossypaul
Excellent follow up to the debut album (We'll Live and Die in These Towns). If you liked that album, you'll like this one as well.Published on 1 Feb. 2014 by Robert English
A solid album from a good band. Would always have struggled to live up to the first album though. I like it but don't love it.Published on 3 May 2013 by Simon Nottage
I am a great fan of the 1970s english punk scene and when I listened to this album at a party I knew I'd have to buy it. Read morePublished on 12 May 2011 by Loonatic
