Having had the pleasure of hearing a good chunk of this album already I have to say that Sparta have managed to effectivly combine the anguish of Wiretap Scars succesfully with the grandeur of Porcelain and in my opinion have delivered their greatest album.

A beautifully crafted work that hammers emotional sincerity with a poetic vision.

BUY!

Whilst it's obvious that Sparta are having a concerted attempt to catch the ears of a wider audience this time round, they've achieved a sound which undeniably suits them to a tee. It's still all huge bombast, and rousing scream-along choruses but this time round with a new-found anthemic pop approach, which sounds scarilly like how U2 could have sounded if they had tried much harder back round the time of "War". (Now, a comparison such as that may be a little offputting for some, but take my word for it - It needn't be).

Songs such as "Erase it again" to these ears are strong enough to appeal to capture the hearts of an audience as wide as "Teen Spirit".

Brave, but succesful.

It seems American bands are really allowing 90s groups from England influence them. This sounds like Radiohead (Bends era) crossed with Manic Street Preachers (Holy Bible Era) - But with a twist.

Each song ozzes influences (for instance, the most viscious crime sounds like Franz Ferdinand!).

I don't think it sounds like U2, it is definetely a progression.

It seems the majority of bands that split up and go their seperate ways spend an eternity attempting to recapture the je ne sais quais that trully defined them to begin with. One will take the technical ability with no energy to trully define their musical genius, the other will keep the flare whilst fighting hard to maintain enough technicality to keep the music interesting. In the case of sparta, it is unfortunatley the latter that lingers 'threes' with a bad smell.
We begin with 'untreatable disease' which trully is the selling point of this album. The track explodes with energy as if sparta are picking up exactly where at the drive-in left off. If hearing Jim Ward's power driven vocal screaming 'you were right' won't make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end, nothing will. Whilst 'Crawl', 'Unstitch your mouth', and 'Taking back control' all follow suit accordingly. You really feel as if you've got your moneys worth with this album, even if there is an underlying feeling of predicatbility with these songs...
...and that's where it all ends and the album flops and becomes hideous. The tracks from here on after are horrifically stale, which seem more worthy of U2 b-sides than an outing from these post hardcore legends. By 'the most viscious crime' you really wonder why they're even bothering anymore, and if you haven't turned the album off you've most probably chucked out the window. Yes, the tracks really are that horrific. Go to your local, you'll definatley hear pub bands produce better material than this dull dross.
With such a promising start, it is such a shame to have to slate such a potentially brilliant album. But to the people reading this; download the first four tracks off itunes and save a couple of quid. Its not worth paying full whack for an album where 60% of the content is so horrifcally disappointing.
