Their second album on Island Records rings and shines with the over-the-top production values of GRAMMY®-awarded super-producer Dave Sardy (Oasis, Wolfmother, Marilyn Manson, Johnny Cash, Jay-Z, The Rolling Stones, etc). A bombastic title-track opens with rumbling rhythms and gossamer strings, courtesy of the Calder Quartet, as music critic-turned-frontman Mikel Jollett croons with the heartfelt, soaring inflections of a young Bono. “Numb” is similarly dramatic as winding guitars and trudging drumbeats accompany distorted synthesizers while Jollett sings lyrics about the joys of succumbing to the stereotyped aloof numbness associated with Los Angeles. Loaded with barbed hooks, the angularly arranged “Changing” kick-starts the early 2000s revival before Jollett affects a demure Julian Casablancas approach to the Strokes-esque “It Doesn’t Mean a Thing”, right down to the slightly distorted vocals.
why is no one buying this?
I dont get it. There is so much out there that is derivitive retro nonsense. This is fessh and energetic and is sing along too - what more does the record buying populus want? Am new to them but will be keeping a close eye on them. I cant find this album in the top 200 - surely a mistake?
Most underrated band ever!
What a fantastic album. As good as there amazing first album. Most underrated band ever. If you haven't heard them just give them a go! You won't regret it!
How do you follow up a great album? With in my opinion a better one. An amazing band to see live and although there isn't a standout track like sometime around midnight, collectively I feel this is better overall.
A job well done and I look forward to seeing their next UK tour.
