Never mind The Fall......,
This review is from: Bang Bang Rock & Roll (Audio CD)
The best album of 2005! Looking at other reviews here and on other sites, the majority tend to agree with me that this is a great album. The dissenters seem mainly to make unfair comparisons to (mainly) The Fall and (secondly) The Streets - purely (it seems to me) because of the vocal style of Mr Argos. I won't deny the brilliance of Messrs Smith or Skinner, but that doesn't stop me loving this album - a combination of great songs and fantastic lyrics, all delivered in a style that sets Art Brut apart from the current crop of new wave / post punk derivatives. Not a duff track on this album, but for me the highlight is Rusted Guns of Milan - if you've ever been there (and god knows I have) then it has to strike a chord.
