Album Review

England's the Subways mine the indie punk-pop sound as well as any of their mid-2000s contemporaries. The trio marry a brash, punk-inspired edge with melodic hooks on their 2006 debut Young for Eternity. The album's title is appropriate for encapsulating tunes such as "Rock & Roll Queen" and "Oh Yeah," which telegraph the feeling of being a 17-year-old rock & roller with crunching riffs and thunderous rhythms. But the Subways balance their reckless abandon with a keen sense of melody, as heard on the retro-flavored, acoustic guitar-based "Mary." In fact, much of Young for Eternity sounds like a catalog of youth trends from the '60s, '70s, and '90s — with sunshine pop, glam, punk, grunge, and garage revival all blended into one exuberant package.

cooler than franz ferdinand, more fun than coldplay, more sober than babyshambles, more arty than hard-fi, younger than the editors and you have the subways

Simply Superb

This album was more than a promising start for a new band. Heavier stuff, mixed with some soaring melodies. Bliss.

Whoa! Slow down a bit sparky!

Let me just point out I admire the Subways for grabbing success at a tender age, and of course their fearsome energy. But, though this energy and Billy Lunn's Craig Nicholls/Alex Turner vocal is very imaginative, it doesn't hide this fact that these songs are so very simple, a three-year old could play them. This isn't neccessarily a bad thing as 'Rock 'n' Roll Queen', the dancy 'Oh Yeah' and the mini-epic 'Lines of Light' are great tunes. The Subways have plenty of time to grow, and they could potentially become very, very good indeed Download: Rock 'n' Roll Queen, Lines of Light


Formed: 2002 in Welwyn Garden City, England

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

The Subways are a high-spirited alternative rock outfit featuring Billy Lunn (guitar/vocals), Charlotte Cooper (bass/vocals), and Josh Morgan (drums). The British band formed in Welwyn Garden City in 2002, when the three musicians were only in their early teens. Despite their young age, brothers Morgan and Lunn (the latter of whom took his mother's maiden name as his rock & roll moniker) were longtime music fans, having raided their parents' record collection as kids. Growing up on AC/DC, the Carpenters,...
