They say that the 2nd album of a bands carear is the hard one. Your first album comprises of all the songs u have just spent the last 3 years touring the arse out of and have been tried, tested, re-tried, ignored, forgotten and finally recorded. The second album is a different beast, it has probably been written in the studio whist under pressure from record companys and producers, and is sometimes a bridge too far for some bands (See Stone Roses, Machine Head, Panic at the disco)
BKB however have managed to pull it off, probably because in Chris Peck they have a Singer/Songwriter of genuine class. Tracks like 'Paris' and 'Be Somebody' represent a development of the sound found on 'Civilian' but they never loose sight of why that album was so good. Its angular and anthemic pop, but done with a sense of humour and entertainment. I really hope they're gonna play Bennicassim this year, cos last time I saw them they were MINT!!!!!!
Hopefully this album will turn the band into the world-beating megastars that they deserve to be, but everyone will probably just buy the new Take That one instead, idiots.
