5.0 out of 5 stars If you "don't want to miss out on anything"... buy this 22 Dec. 2005
By Pop Culture Master - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Rakes have been compared to a lot of the newer British bands (like Franz Ferdinand) but while the comparisons might be complimentary, I really don't think that they sound like anyone else out there right now. Their music is indie rock with a definite punk edge, but nothing that you wouldn't want to dance to. I love the fantastic, clear British accent of Alan Donohoe, and the lyrics he sings are cleverly fun without being too serious. "Retreat" has to be one of the best songs I've heard this year, with its catchy tune and carefree message. If you don't want to spend the money for the import of the entire CD yet, buy this and see what the buzz is about. I'm expecting to see more great things from the Rakes in 2006!

5.0 out of 5 stars For fans of Franz Ferdinand that want a more punk edge 5 Nov. 2005
By Manny Hernandez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This band is touring with Franz Ferdinand in the European leg of their tour. They've got a punk sound a bit like FF (but better) with a singer that reminds of Billy Idol at times. In any case, eighties children and Gen-Y'ers alike gotta love these guys! Hope they don't get repetitive with their future productions like their Scottish tour counterparts.
