Customer Review

on 23 February 2010
On Falcon, their second album, The Courteeners progress from the angry yet melodic Libertines-esque racket of their debut record. There are pianos, giant synth swooshes and layered vocals...the album is reminiscient of Pulp at times, what with the plaintive baritone of Liam Fray married to an expansive, synth-layered sound: on scanning the album notes it is no surprise therefore that Ed Buller, producer of Pulp's seedy disco nineties classic album A Different Class is on production duties here. Cameo Brooch and Last of the Ladies push the Courteeners into a lusher, more sensual songwriter direction: Good Times Are Calling is sensational, the standout track of the album, a Doves-esque, staccato medlodic joy. Sycophant and the closer, Will It Be This Way Forever? hark back to the nervy, guitar bile and spittle of the debut album. You Overdid It Doll will just about get away with its similarity to Franz Ferdinand's Take Me Out to become an `indie dancefloor classic' and Cross My Heart And Hope To Fly is Elbow with a cocky swagger. The Courteeners have evolved their sound on this second album and Falcon is hugely satisfying.
