Customer Reviews


Massive fan of these guys, but their albums have been more and more rushed and because of that getting worse and more generic.. 1 song I like on this album which is 'take away the misery' kind of has a bit of the old blackout about it.. Apart from that, not a lot to say, except from 'you' what the hell is that about?

Start The Party

I have been a fan of the band for a long time, been to see them 3 times, bought all albums, but this album just sounds so rushed and incomplete, yet to mention the lack of heart and soul each song seems to be without, extremely disappointing...

The Blackout Bring The Party!

Having loved all their previous albums, I was really excited to hear their new music.
A happy party vibe enthuses through out the album, starting from the very first track. The vocal gymnastics between the 2 vocalists is backed by an insistant rock rhythm across the album. All albums should take an aural journey and here there's slower tracks such You to show their diversity. Favourite tracks include We Live On; Let Me Go and the brilliant album closer, Throw It All Away.

Playing a hot-wired mixture of metal, punk and indie rock with melodies that only increase the music's impact velocity, the Blackout are six young men hailing from Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales. Featuring Gavin Butler and Sean Smith on vocals, James Davies and Matthew Davies on guitars, Rhys Lewis on bass, and Gareth Lawrence on drums, the Blackout came together in 2003; they cut a three-song demo EP, Pull No Punches, in 2004 and within two years they became a name to be reckoned with on the U.K. club...
