3.0 out of 5 stars Very much alive, actually., 23 Oct. 2007
This review is from: Heart Tuned To D.E.A.D. (Audio CD)
It is always a risky tactic when you put out an album where many of the songs rely purely on enthusiasm, as is the case here, rather than melody or well crafted tunes. The album opens with the disco-fuelled 'Drama Queen' and instantly your head becomes filled with the notion that you are in the realm of a bunch of guys who wished they had been teenagers in the 70s. Thankfully, that sound doesn't appear again on the rest of the album. There are nods here and there to Franz Ferdinand and even the odd Editors-esque guitar sound and, while it is certainly not going to go platinum, there is enough on this record to suggest that Switches may well have a bright future - 'Coming Down' and 'Snakes and Ladders' prove this point. There are just too many songs that sound empty and without purpose. There have been better debut albums this year but there have definitely been far worse.
