Customer Reviews

Was it worth the wait lp fans??? HELL YES!!!!

The Betrayed is absolutely brilliant. I don't want to commit yet after just one play through and say if its the best album yet but it comes extremely close at the very least. The two singles released so far I think sum up the album, because there is some awesomely heavy stuff here like the amazing Dstryr/Dstryr which is just the kinda song we've been waiting for, and then the amazingly emotional slow prophets such as Dirty Little Heart. It all comes together to make a truly memorable collection of songs with some incredibly cathchy moments, and some of their best instrument work to date.

So far, I can safely say there isn't a bad song here. From the moment If it Wasn't For Hate built up expertly into Dstryr, i just knew it was going to be great, and the following songs just kept the quality going. This is superb. It mixes everything we've loved from Lostprophets in previous albums, with a bit more heavy stuff than Libertaion Transmission. Don't wait any longer than you have to. Lostprophets are back!!! They are F****NG back!!!

Back to form? For me, not quite, but getting there.

I'm a huge fan of Fake Sound Of Progress and Start Something. Liberation Transmission seemed far too radio friendly and poppy for me, which I thought was a huge shame.

The Betrayed isn't quite up to the standard of their first two albums, but its definitely a step in the right direction. If you liked Liberation Transmission, you'll love this too. If you liked the first two albums, but not the third, The Betrayed might well be a bit of a grower for you, as it has been for me.

One thing I'm not so keen on is that the UK version has two tracks missing (AC Ricochet and Sunshine). Why would a UK band do this to the UK fans, but give the Japanese fans something extra (they are brilliant tracks)?

Do yourself a favour and try to get the Japanese version.

Falls Flat

Finally Lostprophets album has arrived with it being 3 years in the making, expectations were high though to me it somehow falls flat, lostprophets have seemed to learn from their past mistakes of liberation transmission and have tryed to appeal to all their fans keeping a pop side to the song while also going a much more heavier root in the style of burn burn, we are godzilla you are japan and the awesome we are shinobi - however by trying to appeal to all fans the songs fall flat, with it soon dragging on and filler - the lyrics aint all awe inspiring and seem to just gone with the catchies sing along tune - however songs like dstryr and dstryr and next stop atro city still show lostprophets have that fire and can write some pretty amazing rock tunes - not in all a bad album and and a true improvement from liberation transmission but they have more to offer, however they still are one of the best bands live and shouldnt be reckoned with
