Album Review

If Geno Washington were still making records, he would probably sound a lot like the Zutons. Then again, Dexys Midnight Runners, who brought many pop fans' attention to the great soul man in the early '80s, are also forerunners of the Zutons. Tired of Hanging Around was the second album by the Liverpool band and was even more assured than the group's debut offering, Who Killed...... The Zutons. Not that they had changed much — they really didn't need to, for there was no one making music quite like the Zutons, the voice of David McCabe able to handle songs as diverse as "Secrets," which was a throwback to the sleazy early-'80s sound just before synth pop took over, and "Why Can't You Give Me Your Love?," the first single taken from the album, which also had a retro feel — but going back even further to the 1960s garage rock bands. There was a little bit of everything here, including the powerful sax playing of Abi Harding — obvious on every track but not dominant — and Boyan Chowdhury's guitar work, which was original and innovative (and would soon be missed, as he left the band not long afterwards). They unashamedly lifted the intro of Tears for Fears' "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" for their song "Valerie," but the song was so good that one could forgive them almost anything; indeed, Amy Winehouse took the same song into the Top Ten for the second time within two years with a very different version. What a pity they released Tired of Hanging Around in the same week as Shayne Ward's album; otherwise, there would have been some real music at the top of the charts.

Tired of Hanging Around

One of the catchiest albums of the last couple of years!

The Zutons

I love the zutons version of Valerie I think Amy Whinehouse totally trashed it!!

They got better

Wow, what a second album from the Zutons. I must admit that I only really discovered the Zutons after the release of 'Valerie' by Mark Ronson with Amy Winehouse and it was from that I found the link to this album but I must say that I got their first album 'Who Killed the Zutons?' before 'Tired of Hanging Around', and I was very impressed with it, it is still on my iPod after months now and it had some great singles on it and some great songs too such as 'Zuton Fever', 'Remember Me' and 'You Will You Won't'. But this album was a great difference from their first and I was again very impressed with it, it has some truly great, addictive songs on there, from ''Why won't you give me your Love?' all the way to the party like atmosphere of 'Hello Conscience'. It is a hard decision to make but in a contst for which album is the best I would have to say it is this one for its great difference. The Zutons have a unique sound and I can only say that they are one of the best indie/alternative bands around. I reccomend this album highly as a must get for any music lover, for its difference and its uniqueness from the clever lyrics to the intelligent guitar riffs and the innovative solos. Keep it up Zutons, 5/5
