iTunes Editors' Notes

England’s The Subways are mysteriously unknown in the U.S., though they play huge festivals and have charted overseas; they’ve even landed songs on American television (The O.C.) and in movies like RocknRolla and Charlie Bartlett). This is the power trio’s second full-length record, following the impressive debut Young for Eternity. Whether it’s the major label behind All or Nothing or Butch Vig’s Big Grunge production, the album delivers a surprisingly commercial sound. (Maybe Vig had his Jimmy Eat World hat on for this project.) But fans of the band’s blissfully punchy debut will be rewarded if they give All or Nothing a chance. There are swooping, grimy guitars chasing rubbery, defiant bass lines (“Kalifornia,” “Turnaround,” “Obsession”), fist-in-the-air punk-pop exuberance (“Shake! Shake!”), and even acoustic-flavored tunes for breathing space (“Move to Newlyn,” “Lost Boy”). The first project following the romantic breakup of guitarist/vocalist Billy Lunn and bassist Charlotte Cooper, it may be that All or Nothing is the sound of a band finding new footing. We doubt they’ll lose their way.

Album of 2008

The Subways have come along way since their first album “Young for Eternity and suffered many hardships that might have split lesser bands including the break up of the relationship between lead vocals/guitarist Billy Lunn and bassist Charlotte Cooper and the throat problems that culminated in surgery after which speaking let alone singing again was in question but here they are and along with drummer Josh Morgan they have produced a fantastic album. To start with you might be forgiven for thinking this album has been loaded a little top heavy, with four great, loud, proud and rocking tracks to open with but ultimately you would be wrong. The first of these tracks, “Girls & Boys” is a great choice to open the album, loud and to the point it makes a great statement as for what follows. “Kalifornia” is a track in a similarly heavy vain before we slow up slightly with the more soulful “Alright”. Next comes my current favorite “Shake! Shake!” which features a fantastic bass intro before launching into a heavy, passionate and angry piece of music and leads us into the first of the slower, more tender tracks on the album – Move to Newlyn. Lyrically somewhat philosophical and hopeful, and musically softer it carries the album along nicely into its title track. All or nothing, more up-tempo than the previous song again brilliant lyrically the meaning of the song can be interpreted in many different ways the most obvious of which being that life is to short for regrets and really is “All or nothing”. I won’t let you down gets us well and truly rocking once more and is just as passionate lyrically if not more so than those that it follows. Turnaround is another fantastic out and out rocker of a song which features bassist/backing vocalist Charlotte Cooper take lead on the chorus and one of the best guitar riffs of the album. Obsession keeps the pace with yet more excellent rock riffing and passionate lyrics. Strawberry Blonde assumedly an ode from Billy Lunn to band mate and ex-girlfriend Charlotte is tender, loving and a beautiful piece of music starting slow building into another brilliant chorus before fading back into its slower beginnings. In the final two tracks we see more evidence of a recurring theme towards the end of this album of the tempo changing drastically from one song to the next Always tomorrow is faster, and rockier than Strawberry Blonde and yet closing track lost boy slows us down for the finish and seems to tell the story of a young man looking back on falling in love for the first time and does so fantastically. All or nothing is an album that this trio can be truly proud of, while their debut Young for Eternity never seemed to attract the attention and success that it and they deserved with this album The Subways should find that success and even if not they and their fans can rest satisfied that they have released the best album of 2008 so far.

The Record of the year!

We've seen Coldplay try to go beyond themselves with vida la viva and in my opinion, it fell flat. When there are bands trying to gain a different sound in 2008, the Subways make a guitar distorter seem new and exciting again. Wait until 0:32 on Girls and Boys. The riff is mind blowing. The rest of the tracks don't fail from there, its packed full of gorgeous shiny pop-rock gems that put other bands to shame. The Subways have youth on their side - and it certainly comes through on this record as it did on their debut. No words can adequatley describe how immense this record is for me! This band just never falls short and I can't wait until they showcase these tracks live. Young for Eternity promised great things, and its being delivered right here on All or Nothing. And the best part is, I know theres more greatness to come from this band. Sometimes its best just to go back to old school punk riffs and cocky attitude, as the Subways have shown on this record.

Review - All Or Nothing

The long awaited 2nd album by the subways is finally here, and what an amazing album it is. Some of the songs are future festival anthems in the making including 'Shake Shake', 'Alright' and 'Girls And Boys'. They're equally as good as their biggest hits 'Oh Yeah', 'Mary' and 'Rock And Roll Queen'. Okay, it may have taken them just over two years to make the album but their long awaited second album is equally as good as the first and the subways have now firmly established thereselves as one of the biggest bands around at this current time. In my opinion the subways along with the cribs, are one of the most underated bands in the world, however i feel this album will prove to the critics that they're an amazing band. Overall Rating - 5 Star Thanks, Adamski!
