Start Something

Amazon.co.uk

Start Something is an appropriate slogan for the Lostprophets, as that's exactly what the Welsh six-piece are doing on their second album. Rather than continuing down the nu-metal path suggested on their first album, thefakesoundofprogress, the Lostprophets have widened their scope and created a second album that's less an evolution and more a change of direction. The Lostprophets haven't so much lost touch with their rock roots as spread them further, tapping into emo and hardcore as well as more familiar hip-hop tinged metal of recent tourmates Linkin Park (especially on "We Still Kill the Old Way" and "Make a Move").

In the style of Rage Against the Machine, first single "Burn, Burn" is a catchy teen-angst anthem with an unforgettable riff; standout second single "Last Train Home" out-emos the Lostprophets' American peers (including Good Charlotte, who provide guest vocals). Best of all, the willingness to experiment that the Lostprophets demonstrated on their debut remains on Start Something: "I Don't Know" and "Goodbye Tonight" even suggest recent American hardcore and emo pioneers such as At the Drive In. Even singer Ian Watkins' voice has improved, so that he now sounds even more like Faith No More's Mike Patten--and that's no bad thing. Granted, few people over the age of 25 will have much time for the music or sentiments of Start Something, but it's doubtful that the Lostprophets or the millions of rock fans that this album should convert will be too concerned about that. --Ted Kord

I was a little late to the 2004 scene (Lostprophets, Incubus, Hoobastank etc.) but fell in love with this band the moment I heard them. Their unique, boisterous style gets you invigorated and ready to face anything. The thing I admire the most about this record is that the ending to each song is the beginning of the next. This makes the album feel like one piece of music as opposed to a collection of songs; this really highlights the band's talents. For the punk/post-hardcore genre, this is most definetly a classic and should be heard by everyone who loved the 1997-2005 era of music/culture.
P.S. Let us celebrate the good times and not dwell in the bad

After their first album, The Fake Sound Of Progress, I wasn't particulary expected a great deal from this one. But I was amazed at the progress they had made from their last album. I'll run through my personal opinions on my favourite tracks on the album:
1. We Still Kill The Old Way - Great song with fantastic guitar sequence at the start, reminisant slightly of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but I'd make no other links between them. The song has a good tune, great beat and a catchy chorus. 9/10
2. To Hell We Ride - If you have Need For Speed Underground on the Ps2 you will recognize this, as along with Burn Burn it is one of the songs on the deal they have with Ea Sports. Onto the song, it has a fast tune and tempo, a heavy metal chorus and a catchy bridge. 9/10
3. Last Train Home - The second single along with Burn Burn to be released from this and it has recently got to number 8 in the charts (too low if you ask me!) But this song will have you singing it all day and force you to listen. After a nice calm start the usual guitar sequnce, and some philosophical lyrics, this song really catches on and the chorus is superb. 10/10
10. A Million Miles - A slightly less heavy song this one, but good none the less. Good verses and another catchy chorus with very good lyrics and a great tune to it. 9/10
There are plenty of songs that I havn't mentioned, but personally I wouldn't skip a single track on the album. And if you didn't know, this cd come with extra material for your pc, including the video to Burn Burn and studio footage.
I rate this album very highly and recommend it seriously to rock fans

Okay so it isnt the START of something considering it is their second album but it is according to the band themselves who say that this is their first album proper. anyway this album is absoloutely fantastic from start to finish! AS heavy metal fan myself whose favourite bands include Machine Head and Metallica, I was a little apprehensive at buying this in the first place as I thought it would be a little too 'pop-like' for me. But I was wrong. The album starts with We Still Kill the Old Way which is one of the best songs on the album with a killer chorus and some inventive ideas to boot. Then we get To Hell We Ride which is followed up by the brilliant Last Train Home. My favourite songs on the album are We Still Kill the Old Way, Start Something (which has a riff that reminds me of Muse' Stockhom Syndrome by the way but that dosent matter!), Last Summer and We are Godzilla you are Japan. But every song on the album is a cracker, and the fact that they have those weird but cool outros on some tracks is also very inventive. Bascially this album rocks, its also mellow, has some great riffs and though yes it is different from their first album its still worth every penny of your money. album of the year contender already? I think so.

Many people rip this band off for being too commercial or mainstream but the fact is this is what this band strive not to be. There about the music which makes them worth a listen.
I've basically grown-up with lostprophets seeing them in everything from small barflys to academy 1's and they never cease to amaze me.
The addictive melodies and riffs are far more worked and fabricated in this the second album from the Welsh sextet, they songs are far more worked and more organised tha the debut but still have the same rebelliousness and attraction we all felt when listenin to F.S.O.P.
I heard these songs when they were first aired in Manchester and was awestruck, this is band not to be missed and should come with a safety warning for addictiveness!
Its time to start something, get addicted

When Lost Prophets first emerged, they were over rated and over hyped by the media. They were thrown straight in at the deep end by their label, with a debut album that was pretty much just the demo's they got signed with, which were at the bands own admission not particularly good. But the 2 singles released from the 'Fake Sound of Progress' album gave a glimpse of Lost Prophets true potential.
Since their first album, Lost Prophets have gained a lot of experience and had time to refine their sound and figure out who they are as a band. 'Start Something' definately benefits from this and shows the Prophets have come of age and finally fulfilled their potential.
On 'Start Something' keyboard player Jamie Oliver's is a lot more involved. His screaming adds a newfound aggression to songs, but never in a way that compromises the melody or over shadows Ian Watkins singing. The singing and screaming combination bounce off each other to brilliant effect (to best affect in 'To Hell We Ride'), this twin vocal attack gives Lost Prophets a much welcomed extra dimension. Also the heavy use of multi layered guitars make the riffs soar, while the subtle use strings/orchestra (in songs such as 'Make A Move') add a dramatic and epic feel to the album.
They already released 5 singles from this album (and could easily release a couple more if they wanted to), which is testament to how strong the material is. The singles released also give a good example of the diversity and quality of the tracks on 'Start Something'.
Lost Prophets have figured out what they do best; fast, adrenalin pumping, rock music that has a killer hook and chorus to sing along to. And this is exactly what they do throughout this album.

'Start Something' is a million miles better than 'Fake Sound' in every way.
