5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 6 July 2005
This review is from: Young For Eternity (Audio CD)
I bought this album off the back of 'Oh Yeah' and the seeing them live, and i think this album is absoluetely brilliant. The production of it is just superb, it sounds as though it is layered to perfection, and the tracklisting is brilliant in its order. The first song, i have heard in so many different forms, but the one they have chosen is great. The vocals displayed are sublime. The build up sounds great every time. Then 'Holiday' kicks in, with its raw guitar intro. It sounds reminiscant of 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'. 'Rock 'n' Roll Queen' seems pretty weak, not much of a chorus, not much of a verse and not much in the way of a great guitar riff. I'm not quite sure why this is a single to be honest. 'Mary' is the first real sign of an Oasis influence. Simple lyrics to an accoustic rhythm. This song sounds great. The title track rips in with another Nirvana-esque intro, with some more simplistic lyrics. The entire song sounds raw, energetic and brilliant. Its clear for all to see that this band have got riffs coming out of their ears. The haunting track 'Lines Of Light' is absolute exellence right from the lead singer's gentle vocals to charlotte's beautiful harmony to the accoustic guitar. A gentle song which sounds so brilliant. Right on the end of the final strum the drum introduction of 'Oh Yeah' sets in, kicking off an explosion of youthful pop rock. 'City Pavement' starts off pretty poorly, with no real intro, and some now familiar sounding vocals, but then the chorus hits in, and its suddenly not so familiar. Good use of a female voice in the background. The song then precedes into some cool guitar effects with the vocals also being changed peter frampton style. From what seemed an ordinary song which was seeing the album beginning to get repetitive, they just changed it up a bit. Just. More accoustic guitar on 'No Goodbyes', which is another gentle song, perfect for any School Leaving parties. He sings with such innocence and such ryhthm and soul that he can pull off even the quiet tracks. 'With You' brings back the hard hitting guitar with a great riff. Billy screams 'When i'm with you it seems so easy', with such emotion. This song takes so many directions in just over 3 minutes its incredible. This is a diverse song to say the least. 'She Sun' is a track that could have easily been left off the album. It doesn't have any of the flair, the confidence, or the ability that the rest of the album displays. But not to worry because 'Something' brings it back. This song has such a great opening riff, it sounds instantly familiar from the first time you hear it, before breaking down into radiohead like vocals. Half way through the song breaks down completely, only to come back with an emotional sing-a-long. After a 6 or seven minute wait we hear the opening riff of 'At 1AM'. This is a brilliant track which is almost a brilliant conclusion to an excellent experiment. It musically sums up everything just heard on the album. All in all this album is superb, and i cant find a justifiable flaw in it. This band have amazing talent to create great guitar riffs and do it in a poppy way, that will make almost anyone enjoy listening to them. I'm sorry but I'm incredibly impressed with this album, so much so, i'd go as far as saying its the best album of the year so far. And i've bought the offerings from coldplay, white stripes, bloc party, sterephonics, QOTSA, Oasis, Foo Fighters and Athlete, and they dont really compare to the brillance of this album. 9.9/10
