My Favourite Albums 2004

"Meets my needs perfectly! The album crosses between indie and synth led dance and back again. Definitely shows influences from the brothers' deejaying. Check out Radio Soulwax. It's them deejaying."
Faded Seaside Glamour

"Nicely chilled, with moments of energy. Check out track 8, this drops nicely into a dance set too."
Hot Fuss

"Probably one of the most fashinable teams to like at the moment. But there is substance to it, too! Good strong bass guitar starts this album and then it's just up from there."
Antics

"Dinstinctive vocals really make this stand out. And check out the video for  Evil."

"Outstanding album. How many bands of this genre do you know that have a saxophone in their line-up?!?! And it's used to great effect."
Devin Dazzle and the Neon Fever

"Difficult to describe apart from, rough cuts and slamming vocals. Check out the vocal talent on track 2. Just seen Felix DJ at the Concorde 2 in Brighton. Lots of indie and rock influence in his set."
Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned

"A cracking return to form. Lots of breaks and lots of volume and not a hint of firestarter! Excellent."
Franz Ferdinand

"Everyone seems to love this band and rightly so."

"They sound familiar and you can see where their influences lie, though it sounds fresh at the same time."

"he Love of Richard NixonThe Manics still manage to sound new after all this time. Track 2  is my favourite."
Final Straw

"A pretty good step forward from When It's All Over We Still Have to Clear Up which was good but not consistent. Not a single track on this album is weak."
The Decline Of British Sea Power

"Released in 2003 but still worthy of a mention. I find the first 3 tracks a little heavy but thereafter, a very distinctive indie sound."

"The definitive collection. If you like experimentation with sound (synths, samples, etc), then get this now."

"They're an excellent live act and this is a well picked collection of their best. I'd recommend getting all of their albums, but if you want a taste, it's a good place to start."

"I saw these supporting Easyworld last year, and i think Longview showed them up. Melancholic indie and it's great. Check out Further. My favourite."
Kill The Last Romantic

"In a good way, Easyworld sound like a local band. Such a great feel. I would probably say that This is Where I Stand is better, though."
Futures

"Maybe not Indie but, still has traces of it and then on other tracks like Pain, strong loud guitars."

"Up there with the like of Orbital. Long live the Chemical Brothers."

"Still using samples of spoken word to great effect, you can't go wrong with Orbital. And they're as old as your mum and dad."

"With trance music on it's way out, this albums shows that there's life left in it."
