The Proclaimers always seem capable of surprising me with a good album just when I had decided that they hold no relevance for me. As with their last release this took a couple of listens, but Notes and Rhymes is a solid album and doesn't mess with their winning formula. Its more Hit The Highway than Born Innocent if you are familiar with their past works.

'Love Can Move Mountains' is a great track as is 'I Know'

Disc Two has 4 acoustic tracks, highlighting just how good they are as an unacompanied duo, plus 6 great live tracks. If you are buying the new album then its well worth the extra few quid.

If you are new to The Proclaimers, their 'best of' is a great place to start, and their 'Restless Soul' album is their best and this, while good does not hit the same consistent standard as some of their previous works, but is still a good album.

Most Proclaimers albums are formualaic, and I don't mean that in a bad way. They typically have one song about drinking, one about sex, one about love, one about the death of a loved one, one that's just a bit of fun, and one antitwar/political. Usually they are a good mix of upbeat foot-tappers and beautiful and moving tracks. This album is all that, fun, sad, uplifting, political, topical, thought-provoking. I had a tear in my eye at one point (although that might have been hayfever). When I wasn't crying I was smiling. On the strength of this album they have overtaken Muse as my second favourite band (The Eels are still my favourite band, but if the Proclaimers keep turning out albums like this who knows)

Bought this to complete my collection, for some reason I didn't get around to buying it at time of release. Overall I was a bit disappointed, it doesn't seem to be up to the usual standard. However, it's a reasonable collection of songs, quite introspective and heartfelt lyrics, and worth a listen. Just not sure it will be one of my most played.

It usually takes some time for an album to grow on me and I've only had this for a couple of weeks as yet but I think I'm going to like it a lot. If you're looking for something new here, you may be disappointed, but if you like what Craig & Charlie have done before, this is for you. It's good value, too, with a second disc offering some acoustic versions from live gigs. Some artists (like Eric Clapton) tend to produce their best work live and I think Craig & Charlie fall into this category but, having said that, the Rockfield Acoustic Session was a disappointment. It seemed to lack the verve and sparkle that normally characterises a Proclaimers gig. However, the Edinburgh Castle set makes up for it and is worth the second CD all on its own. There's some very singable stuff here. If you've heard the boys before and liked what you heard, live a little and lash out a few quid on this. You won't regret it!

After recently dusting off their first two brilliant albums, I finally decided to check out something newer - and went for this one and "Restless Soul". I had resisted, as somehow it seemed implausible to me that they could still hit the same standards as old, but with Notes and Rhymes at least, they certainly have. I LOVE this album. It has that wonderful Proclaimers mix of quirky up-tempo original genius ("I Know" and "Wages of Sin"), beautiful ballads ("Shadows Fall", "Love Can Move Mountains", "Three Days") and joyful rock 'n roll ("Notes and Rhymes"). This can quite happily sit on the same shelf as "This is the Story" and "Sunshine on Leith". The guys still have it! If, like me - you haven't braved a Proclaimers album in many years - then I recommend this one to get you going again. Five stars - no problem.

If you'd thought (like me) that their best days were Sunshine on Leith etc I was blown away by the new stuff. Pithy, heartfelt and yes, still catchy tunes. Love the way that ascerbic social commentary is woven into singalong melodies. Had tears in my eyes a few times. Love it, my favourite album.

For those who know the Proclaimers work then this is another collection of songs to the usual standard. The usual mixture of love songs, satire and political comment all wrapped up in easy to listen to tunes. For those who don't know the Proclaimers work you should try it.

When I mention The Proclaimers in conversation to friends and family, many of them seem to regard them as some kind of novelty act, especially after the 2007 Matt Lucas & Peter Kay Comic Relief single. They can't seem to understand why that attitude seems to frustrate me or why, indeed, I would mention them amongst my favourite artists. It's only when I get the opportunity to play them a few tracks do they finally understand exactly why it is I'm so passionate about them. Well, the excellent "Notes & Rhymes", with its songs of heartbreak, social commentary, love and politics, all delivered with impeccable musicianship and incredible passion, is just another great example of just exactly why I love The Proclaimers. It's only when you go beyond the handful of big hits they've had do you really start to understand the essence and the true appeal of the band.

There are many highlights of this, The Proclaimers' eighth studio album. It starts off with the raucous title track, "Notes & Rhymes", which gets the adrenaline pumping, the feet tapping and the head nodding. "Love Can Move Mountains", the first single from the album, is nothing short of magnificent, extremely rousing music with stirring lyrics and stunning harmonies, particularly when the high notes are hit - it's an instant Proclaimers classic. "Three More Days" is a touching, gentle song about coming home to your family which slowly builds in stature throughout. The two covers, Damien Dempsey's "Sing All Our Cares Away" and Moe Bandy's "It Was Always So Easy (To Find An Unhappy Woman)" are great additions to The Proclaimers' repertoire, especially the melodic and emotionally engaging "Sing All Our Cares Away".
