4.0 out of 5 stars Spark of ingenuity, 5 Sept. 2008
This review is from: The Singles (Audio CD)
I feel unworthy to do anything other than basque in the greatness of The Clash and place this album on a pillar of all time greatness.
These tracks have said more politically, socially and with more drive that 10 cabinets at downing street. This compliation of classics tracks their growth as a band from simplistic marvells such as "White Riot" to the ever so cunning "London Calling" up to the point where you wonder whether punk is loosing its meaning.
Anyhow. There be times when you think "Golly-gosh is it me are all of these pop-punkish type bands today copying them","Did I hear that right, did they just say..." and maybe "When will this end". But, in summary you will most probaly think the album was a fantastic insight to have.

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't you just wat to hug them., 5 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Love & Disrespect (Audio CD)
The songs are good, consistent, no duff ones you have to skip. Verona being the real stand out hit, but many other are battling close behind for that hot spot.
You always wish, if they had maybe found someone with a more vibrant, maybe more edgy, but at least stronger voice the songs could drive home a little harder.
That said the tunes are catchy, the lyrics are strong and I throughly enjoyed listening to the CD.
I love the jolly, upbeat numbers, though any references to drug I find to a tad immature, they're too cute for that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Come out of the disguise!, 5 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Get Rid (Audio CD)
Why, I ask myself truely puzzled, are Robots In Disguise confined to the echos of the electro-indie movement? Why do we not hear about them frequently? With their catchy (rather generic)punk-pop beats sprinkled with a teaspoon on so of "edge" they hould surely have plently of commercial appeal.
That is, even without mentioning the lassiez-faire attitudes, style, charisma (and um...maybe famous tie ins) of the girls.
Regardless this album is burting with energy and plenty of fun. It looks liketime to get out the glitter and start doing robot dancing again!

4.0 out of 5 stars A defining measure of an aficionado, 5 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Sawdust (Audio CD)
If, when you hear the warbling sound of Brandon Flowers erractic maybe flaky voice your ears prick up with glee, The Killers secretly brilliant lyrics pummelling through you, then I see you have no choice but to purchase this album immediately. You will not be put off by the simularity of the many tracks. (I frequently start singing one and accidently somehow blend it into another part way through.)
Nevertheless for the rest of us it is a good (rather long) collection of many moderate tracks, but intertwinded with some sparkling gems, true rarities. Nothing less than is expected.
A good heart gushing chat on the phone with a friend you haven't seen in a while to tide you over whilst you eagerly await their homecoming.
