The TCTC are just simply amazing, they exude the same swagger that oasis did with Definetly Maybe, but for a debut album they have captured something far more, as Amber and The Lake will testify, and with Who needs Enenmies and Been Training Dogs you feel like doing a Liam a like sing-a-long! but it's with the extra Cd that they show their depth,as Devil Walks In The Sand and Way out west are just simply amazing... They transfer from Live to CD just aswell as oasis do... So go buy this CD or anything by the TCTC, cos if you don't your missing out!!!

Such a good band live and on CD, shame they split up!!!!
Music's very personal but I would recommend this album ( and their other one!) to people who like heavy guitar driven sounds, its pretty dark but with some lovely electronic sounds cleverly complimenting the singer and brilliant harmonies. Quite a few of the songs start off with strange sounds, building into rhythmic drums, heavy guitars and then an explosion of angst driven rock and roll!
To me it's got influences of the heavier parts of Pink Floyd in some of the tunes.

I've bought a lot of good albums of late and after buying the My Vitriol album i honestly didn't believe i would be able to buy anything as good for a long time. However i was wrong. Cooper Temple Clause sneaked quitely into my life and then very noisily blew me away. The very first line on the album goes "did you miss me? I bet you did" and all i can say is that this is the album i've being missing all of my life. Its hard to label this band with comparisons to others. You can go from incredible melodies to roaring guitars in the blink of an eye. "Film Maker" and "Been training dogs" epitomise the rip-roaring guitars, "The Lake" and "Murder song" are just glorious and the combination of melodies and almost punkish guitars on "Did you miss me?" is simply sublime. Yes this is an exciting time for British music, and nobody sums up this excitement more. This is the best album i have bought in a long time and i would emplore everybody to buy this album. You won't regret it!

What can you say about the best indie band around. The coopers are an exquiste blend of socially conscious lyrics, unique musical direction and fashion icons. The album hits the spot, with the highlights being "The Lake", "Amber" & "Film Maker". The ltd edition provides the awesome "Devil Walks In The Sand" & "Way Out West" so buy the CD and check them out on their latest UK tour, as they are something else live!

Quite simply this rocks! It is brilliant stuff - drawing together diverse musical threads, it is like Rush covered by Coldplay - the Ibiza chill-out mix....
Not good for your neighbours, and definitely not background music for a dinner party, though. Unless you live in a detatched house with only like-minded cohabitees it might be best played through earphones to annoy fellow passengers on the tube.

What can i say this album rocks!! Sounds like Oasis, Kulashaker, The Beatles and a dash of the Chemical Brothers....Very Refreshing! TCTC have a great sound buy this album now before they get really big (they will) and the price goes up! It takes a few listens to really get into it but i am talking a few listens! do it man they ROCK!!!

A fantastic album! Great guitar, strange but effective synth sounds mixed up with Bens vocals makes it a mad kind of chaos that you'll understand by the end of the last track! Intrigued - you should be! Best album i bought this year and that includes feeders comfort in sound!

TCTC have burst onto the scene since the gained high NME coverage towards the back end of last year. The singles have all ben great so the album was hotly anticipated and by and large, they dont let me down
TCTC music goes all over the shop with influences accros the guitar music scene. However, fundemantally this is a indie record with a rawness and a real sense of rock n roll about it.
Like many of the reviews before, I do not feel picking out strengths and weaknesses is useful in this case as the album has to be taken as a whole. If you like anything remotly indie based then the chances are you will gain something from this album.
The NME gave this album 7/10 which is definatly stingy but to call it a classic and award it 5 stars would be going over the top. It is a good album which at this price does warrent serious consideration. It's not a modern day classic but it will certainly lauch them on the road to stardom

This is an album that just gets better and better the more you listen to it. Along with The Music, The Coral and Hundred Reasons, TCTC are one of the best new bands in the world at the mo.
The opener Did You Miss Me sets the tone for much of the album: Fairly prog-y, furiously angry, wildly eclectic and unlike much else around at the moment. (which can only be a good thing) from DYMM they launch into Film Maker and Panzer Attack. The first a chainsaw like guitar attack with stalker lyrics and the second very much living up to it's title. TCTC's sound takes another U-turn for Who Needs Enemies? a brilliantly cynical commentary on the music industry with Ben's raw vocals at their best. By the time you've reached Amber you'll realise no 2 songs sound similar. From here on every track is equally brilliant (apart from 555bla bla bla which should be a b-side imo) but it's the final track, Murder Song that stands above all the other tracks. Amazing vocals and lyrics combined with huge swirling textured guitars and keyboards make this trak totally stunning.
If this wasn't enough cd2 is excellent with Devil Walks In The Sand and I'll Still Write being 2 of my favourite TCTC songs ever.
If you don't own this go and buy it right now. You won't regret it......
