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.

Saw the band live a few weeks ago and they were great. The album doesn't disappoint either, with Promises and Kidda Kidda being fantastic. I really enjoyed the first album, Civilian but there is so much more depth to this one. I have listened to it three times since it arrived this morning and it gets better each time. Keep up the good work lads.

Having loved their first album I was expecting more of the same with the second album and was initially disappointed that this album is so different from the first. However, after listening to it 3 times it has definately grown on me and is a very good album

It just starts with a huge blow, Promises, the best song on the whole album with one of the catchiest refrain in music's history. Stucks in your head for a long time. Every song of the album has a meaning and is different but always excellent, one of the best musical adventures in indie music. Be Somebody is outstanding, one of the hardest songs on the album. An easy catchy song's also A Ok. Two Souls is very beautful ending for this epic album.
Although Boy Kill Boy is dead, i hope they will reunite for at least one new album..It would be a dream.

Songs:

Promises: 10/10
No Conversation: 10/10
Be Somebody: 10 /10
Loud & Clear: 9/10
Paris: 9/10
A Ok: 9/10
Ready To Go: 10/10
Rosie's On Fire: 10/10
Kidda Kidda: 8/10
Pen & Ink: 9/10
Two Souls: 9/10
