4.0 out of 5 stars
The Killers et al. without any rubbish., 21 Sept. 2005
I walked into a record store having already outspent my budget. As I donned the headphones of the sampler CD and was hit by this...
beep, beep, beep, dong! A small samlpe from some classic arcade game (of which the name escapes me) serves as a prelude to some of the best pop rock I have heard in a long time. The Shout Out Louds seem to have got the whole 'making good music' down to a tee. The album is packed with gripping melodies, tastefully complemented by some more subtle touches for those music geeks out there. Beyond this words escape me....
If you like the current pop rock scene such as the killers but want an addition to your CD collection that will make your friends regard you as the beholder of all great things musical - this is the one for you. Give these Scandanavien boys (and girl) a worthy place on your CD rack and let your friends rush out and buy the album whilst you sit smuggly thinking "I got there first".
and if you were wondering... I walked out of the shop knowing my credit rating had just plumpted but knew it was worth it.
