Matured Sound but Liam Fray is trying too hard.,
This review is from: Anna (Audio CD)
Right I'll start off the review with, If you are expecting St Jude 2 or Falcon 2 you'll be let down. Like most bands the Courteeners have moved on and developed from Lad Rock rock football lovers to decent musicians looking to make it massive with Anthems.
Liam Fray is one of the Hardest working men in music but I think that's also his flaw. This is a decent album with some of the best songs he's written such as Van Der Graaff but It doesn't feel like this album flows like the other two.
The third album is always the hardest, Be here now by Oasis in opinion was dreadful. This is not a dreadful album nor is it amazing. Take the good songs from the album and wait for Album number four as this band have the potential to be massive.
