Customer Review

on 5 December 2011
For a young band making a follow up album to a truly outstanding debut (2009's "These Four Walls") the pressure is really on and Edinburgh's We Were Promised Jetpacks so nearly deliver. There is no doubt they are gifted songwriters and In the Pit of the Stomach showcases their development over the last couple of years although the songwriting template of crescendoing each track which worked so well for the previous album has largely been abandoned, the excellent Act on Impulse aside. This is in favour of a more varied approach, first single Medicine and epic closer Pear Tree encapsulating this range from chunky punk-pop melodicism to epic, while Sore Thumb and Human Error show their skill at writing a singalong chorus has been further developed. The only criticism is that the hights of excellence of the debut have not quite been maintained but clearly this is a development on the road to what is bound to be world domination for the boys before too long.
