It's been a great year for music, and 'In Love', the debut album from Peace, a quartet indie band from Worccester, has been one of my favourite releases.

Granted, it is hardly original, but who really cares? - this is just good music. The four members of the band have put together an album with a diverse collection of songs, all with a different style. The overall feel is that of the '90s, but the well written tracks sound fresh and modern, and will appeal to the young generation.

The obvious radio hit 'Lovesick' is one of those songs that will instantly make you happy, 'Follow Baby' is addictive, but 'California Daze' is a genuine standout, a very pretty song that is complemented by some nice guitar work and backing vocals. Another favourite of mine is the melodic 'Float Forever'.

If you haven't already heard 'In Love' yet, buy it, because it is a faultless debut. I look forward to hearing more from this promising new band in 2014.

I bought this CD a while back after reading about it in the NME, and I can honestly say that it's one of the best albums I've ever listened to. It's worth buying the deluxe edition - the four bonus tracks are great.

You can pick out influences from lots of bands - Oasis, The Stone Roses and Nirvana are probably the main ones, but Peace still manage to sound really fresh, and are a good alternative to modern bands such as Palma Violets and The Vaccines.

The best songs are probably Wraith, Drain, Delicious and Bloodshake, but all 14 songs are amongst the best from the last couple of years.

Peace have been gathering a following with every song released. The early releases of Follow Baby and Bloodshake were promising, while jaws hit the floor with 2012's 'EP Delicious' - every song was fantastic, showing different sides of Peace, from the sun-kissed harmonies of 'California Daze', to the effortless groove of '1998 (Delicious)'.

Hype justified. It's a remarkably assured album, for a debut, with only one real misstep (the missable 'Toxic'). 'California Daze' and 'Follow Baby' reappear (the latter with a new coat of paint), while 'Higher Than The Sun' and 'Lovesick' are enjoyable romps through familiar lyrical material. In Love's high mark (there aren't many wasted notes here - the album clocks in at less than 36 minutes) is undoubtedly the one-two-three punch of 'Wraith' (the return of groovy, dance music-influenced Peace), 'Delicious' (grooving bass with driving drums and chiming guitars) and 'Waste of Paint' (beautifully languid guitar lines in the verse meet urgent riffing at the stunning chorus).

Overall, the sound is gorgeous. It's not hyperbole to compare them to the Stone Roses. It's not a match for the Roses' stunning debut, of course, but the sound is here - the bass and drums groove so naturally, while guitarist Douglas Castle effortlessly riffs, licks, and shreds with only the sky to limit his talent - to which can be added Harry Koisser's quality vocals, mature and leathery (in a good way). Excellent - a great start.

Peace In Love.

Truly amazing. The song writing skills of the 4 members is a gift. With catchy songs and amazing lyrics it's hard not to sing along. It defiantly worth buying the deluxe over the standard for the 4 extra songs which are simply amazing.

Absolutely brillaint album, i can't say i dislike any of the tracks on it. They are the next upcoming indie rock band and judging from when i saw them live are going to be very succesful. Not only is Harrisons voice superb on the album it sounds exact the same or maybe better in real live. Genuine and down to earth boys as well - as i met them and feel that they will be very succesful in the future with this wonderful album that they have produced.

Also a round of applause for writting every song, this seems to be getting rare with bands today.

I love the album, my only problem is I don't physically own the album on vinyl because amazon still haven't sent it to me, I ordered it over two months ago with a birthday gift card, you let me amazon and you let yourself down, turn that yellow smile upside down.

the five stars are for the artist and the album because it's not their fault....

...and as for amazon, your stars are just like my vinyl... non-existent

This was one of my more anticipated releases of the year after their excellent "EP Delicious",but I was worried they wouldn't live up to expectations. Thankfully they had delivered a brilliant album packed with great tunes,so you can believe the hype! Currently my favorite album of 2013!

I was surprised at how good the ablum was, to me it sounds like a mix of stone roses and empire of the sun. I can hear the oasis reference as well, mentioned in the main review, but luckily that doesn't get in the way of a promising debut with a few stand out tracks.

I think In Love is a great debut album from Peace and I'm glad they were able to built positively on their demo tracks but their singles appear to be the best of the album in my opinion. Overall, would recommend.
