4.0 out of 5 stars A strange, but excellent album!, 14 Nov. 2009
This review is from: Blackened Sky (Audio CD)
I find that the best bands dont build a song around the normal structure of verse, chorus,verse,chorus,3rd verse,chorus. What I love about this album is you can tell they have just got loads of riffs and shoved them in any order and don't care what anyone else thinks. That point is represented well on 'kill the old, torture their young,''hero management' and 'stress on the sky'. All though this album is a screwed-up, drug-addled, rock odessey, my one complaint is that alot of their songs sound the same. Apart from 'Scary Mary,' almost all of them start with a quite riff or chord sequence before bolting into thunderous rock. As well '27' and '57' both end with the lyrics 'it's alright' being repeated at the end. Ignoring that, this album is refreshingly different to alot of rock albums. If you want a more mainstream Biffy, then you want their album Puzzle.
And no, they don't sound anything like Foo Fighters.

Best songs: '27,' 'Kill The Old, Torture Their Young,' 'The Go-Slow' and '57'

2.0 out of 5 stars Just download Spaceman instead, 10 Oct. 2009
This review is from: Day & Age (Audio CD)
I'm not getting joy from writing about a good band's demise, but this album really disappointed me. I will go through the reasons why for each song below.

Losing Touch 5/10 - This song starts well, but doesn't lead anywhere. The promise of impending doom at the start of the song doesn't happen. Bad way to start.

Human 6/10 - I'm sure you have heard this. Gets annoying after a while.

Spaceman 9/10 - Mixing old and new Killers styles to create this incredibily chatchy and all round awsome song. By far the best thing on this album.

Joy Ride 3/10 - This drains all the energy from Spaceman. A horrible mix of funk and annoying vocals. Waste of a track.

A Dustland Fairytale 6/10 - Technically a very good song. But laking power and purpose. This song could have been very good.

This Is Your Life 7/10 - A nice catchy number which is very nice to bopp along to. A better moment in the album.

I Can't Stay 6/10 - Again not to bad. Brandon's voice is a bit grating again though. Nice music and lyrics though.

Neon Tiger 1/10 - How can this be the band that made classics like Mr Brightside and Bones? A disgusting mix of overblown strings and ear-piercingly out of time vocals. The most depressing thing about this is that you can hear the Bones falsetto backing vocals and Mr Brightside guitars behind this mask of shocking 'music'.

The World That We Live In 3/10 - Sound like a horrible Ipod advert. Has no purpose at all.

Goodnight, Travel Well 5/10 - Promises something throughout the song, when it does come, it isn't worth the wait!

A Crippling Blow (bonus track) 7/10 - WHY IS THIS THE BONUS TRACK? I would much rather have this than Neon Tiger!!!

If I were you I would just download Spaceman, This Is Your Life and A Crippling Blow instead. It will save money and effort (you won't have to listen to Neon Tiger!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Radiohead, in a nutshell, 19 Aug. 2009
This review is from: Radiohead: The Best Of (Audio CD)
The poor ratings of i guess is down to the song selection, but I bought this because I wasn't really sure about Radiohead but realised there must be a reason for all the hype. This is what you would expect from Radiohead, downcast alt rock. The 1st CD is brilliant. The best songs on it in my opinion are Paranoid Android, Creep, High and Dry and Street Spirit.
The 2nd cd is more acoustic. The best ones on that are Airbag, The National Anthem and Talk Show Host.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awsome, but bloody long!, 5 May 2009
I bought this album after Invaders Must Die and the two albums I've got demonstrate the depth of the prodigy. It has pretty much a perfect combination of rock and dance in Their Law and Voodoo People. While the likes of 3 Kilos give you a break from hardcore D and B. The songs are break and enter (shame that it is 8:30 mins long!), Their Law, Voodoo People and Chlostraphobic Sting.
The second disc includes mainly live stuff and remixes. It has a good live version of Voodoo People and Break and Enter live edit. Also includes an very rude version of Their Law.
If you buy this album you must know that Disc 1 is 78mins long and Disc 2 is something like 59mins long. Too long in my opinion!

5.0 out of 5 stars Upbeat British Indie, 25 May 2008
Many people have abusive things to say about The Wombats, but this is one of those albums which you never get bored of! It has limitless querks and great tunes. It may not have the greatest lirics in the world but they are easy to pick out and aren't really going to make you commit suicide or cry in a corner. However I do agree that the lead singer looks like he eats children!
Best Songs: Backfire at the Disco, Let's Dance to Joy Division, Moving to New York and My First Wedding.
