The Views highly anticipated 5th studio album Ropewalk (released June 8th) produced by Albert Hammond Jr & Gus Oberg (The Strokes) and mixed by Justin Gerrish (Vampire Weekend) will be released on Cooking Vinyl. Says Kyle Falconer of The View I would say that this record has really taken us out of our comfort zone. It was a huge compliment having Albert & Gus produce the album and we're really excited with the result. I think it's our most inventive album yet, we really opened ourselves up to creative possibilities and thankfully the vision paid off. We can't wait to get out there and play it live..."

The release for this one was delayed while The View's frontman Kyle Falconer, who has recently been quoted as saying ''I would say that this record has really taken us out of our comfort zone'', checked into Thailand's Hope Clinic to kick his addictions to alcohol and drugs, and it's been well worth the wait. He added: "I think it's our most inventive album yet", and I find it difficult not to agree with that.
Produced by The Strokes’ guitarist Albert Hammond Jr, Swedish engineer Gus Oberg, and Vampire Weekend’s Justin Gerrish, 'Ropewalk' incorporates so many different elements into their music, it's now completely absurd to even attempt to file them under just the one style.
My favourite songs on the album at the moment are the 1970s-reminstant opener 'Under the Rug', the super catchy and soulful 'Marriage', the gorgeously dreamy 'Talk About Two', the psychedelic, instantly engaging 'House of Queue's', and 'Psychotic', which is actually very mellow in it's style despite the name, and assumingly about the recent experiences of Kyle, whose folksy voice has always been real ear candy.
If you weren't all too keen on The View's early hit singles (which I loved, and still do), when they were constantly labelled as Dundee's answer to The Libertines, then you should seriously consider listening to this varied and exciting album, and you'll then start to see these four lads in a whole new light. They have grown as artists, and have never sounded better. Cheers guys, can't wait for the sixth one!
Kyle Falconer from the band says that this album took them out of their comfort zone, to which I should add that they sound very comfortable here with something that should appeal to a lot of people, more than just their fans. The tracks come at us seamlessly and are a joy to listen to, and this album has pathos, empathy and mellowness, giving us something that is a real pleasure. I know that I am going to have to work my way through their back catalogue now as I really love this particular album.
This is great to listen to at any time and is for me a wonderful discovery. If you are looking for something that grabs you then this could well be it.
For me, The View are (still very much) on fire :-)
