5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing. Just when you think this album can't get ..., 29 Feb. 2016
This review is from: Meet The Humans (Audio CD)
Amazing. Just when you think this album can't get any better, the last track comes on (Words in My Head) with it's hip-hop beat and blows you away. Contender for album of the year already.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding for his age, 26 April 2013
This review is from: Jake Bugg (Audio CD)
I must admit, when all the hype came out about Jake Bugg, I was hesitant to purchase this album. Sounded like a Liam Gallagher wannabe. However I listed to the album on a flight and was instantly hooked. It's one of those albums where each song could easily be a hit. His songwriting reminds me of Johnny Cash, and for his age, this is outstanding. Broken is a genius heartbreaking song, Two Fingers is a singalong classic and the rest are all as good. Liam Gallagher can only dream of writing songs this good.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best artists you'll hear at the moment, 12 Feb. 2013
3 songs. All very different. Each one gets better with every listen. JW and his band are one of the best bands out there at the moment. The best thing about them is the range of sounds they get from the instruments - hugely talented all of them. If you like CSNY, Pink Floyd, Creedence, Beatles, Doors, etc then buy this. In fact if you like good band music, buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Total Genius, 15 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Exit Calm (Audio CD)
The is a totally amazing album. All songs are stand out but ones to mention are 'You've Got It All Wrong', 'Hearts and Minds', 'Don't Look Down' and my personal favourite is 'Forgiveness'. If you like head-nodding, rolling basslines, screaming guitars, crashing cymbals and raw stretched out vocals that echo through the songs, then you'll love this. Yes, they sound like some of the early Verve stuff but hey, what's wrong with that?!! This band is one to watch and I can't wait for the next album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard hitting pumped up genius of an album, 23 Mar. 2010
This review is from: Them Crooked Vultures (Audio CD)
Put it this way, if you like Hendrix, Led Zep, Smashing Pumpkins, Foo Fighters, QoTSA, Cream, Bowie, ...anything with brilliant guitar riffs, pounding neverending drums and awesome basslines, you will love this album from 3 megadogs of the rock world. From start to finish, these are 3 talented guys having fun at what they do best. Homme's lyrics are casual, hedonistic and raw, Grohl smashes his way through every single dromroll you can think of and Jones ... well Jones just does what he does best. Five out of five. Terrific.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay but not as good as the first two, 1 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Humbug (Audio CD)
You can tell the boys have been to the US and you can tell they've worked with Josh Homme. The good thing about the first two albums was that they were unique, authentic - the boys had their own sound, great lyrics and a whole load of energy. In this they sound different, a little bit of pretending to be who they are not. Don't get me wrong I love Josh Homme and QOTSA but the Arctic Monkeys should stick to what they do best - energy driven, electrifying pumped up songs about real life and where they come from. Again, don't get me wrong there are some great tracks - 2 and 7 but overall not as good as the old stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Album of 2009 so far, 22 Jun. 2009
After the first listen, I could pick out a couple of stand out tracks; after the second listen, i picked out a few more, after the third listen the whole thing is just genius. The first five songs are all killer tracks (maybe not the drum n bass one as it's like an interlude). 6 and 7 are a bit of a mellow break from the upbeat tracks but they work. Vlad the Impaler is back to nodding the head and waving the arms (get loose, get loose), ladies and gentlemen is laidback hangover music and the last 3 tracks flow nicely to the end. Kasabian have come back with a fantastic third album after an 'okay' second and an extraordinary brilliant debut. Not afraid to experiment with different sounds, beats, guitars and vocals, this band has got the balance and sound spot on. Buy it and buy it today.
