Editors’ Notes

The premature nova that shattered London's expectation-doomed Libertines in their prime may have been a blessing in catastrophe drag. Despite a penchant for press-baiting, chemically induced career and personal immolation, ex-Libs frontman Pete Doherty and new band Babyshambles delivered the arty, brilliant Down In Albion while guitarist Carl Barat's new outfit largely gets back to basics here, arguably picking up his former band's charged, punk-pop gauntlet in the bargain. Barat bristles with contempt on "Bang Bang You're Dead," a poison-pen note aimed straight at former bandmate Doherty that comes complete with a snarky intro redolent of a New Orleans-style jazz funeral. DPT showcases similar trash-thrash charm on "Gin and Milk" and "You F*****g Love It," while "If You Love a Woman" distills decades of garage-punk angst into three minutes of glory. But Barat and DPT are about more than energetic spasms: the moody dancehall vibe of "The Gentry Cove" recalls similar Doherty fixations on Albion, while the schizoid scorcher "The Enemy" and blistering broadside "Doctors and Dealers" wrestle with demons real or imagined.

Customer Reviews

Carl can definitely stand on his own..

But is anyone else tired of the other reviews on here saying he's "hitting back" at Pete, or contrasting and comparing this to "Down in Albion" and all the Libertines work? I think they all should be judged on their own. No artist wants to make a perfect copy of their old stuff, so maybe this is showing Carl's other talents off as well. "Waterloo"is a great album - listen especially to Doctors and Dealers, You F*ucking Love It, Wondering.. hell, even If You Love A Woman. Don't go into it expecting the Libertines - it isn't as raw or emotional, but it's still great music from a very talented man. Do keep your fingers crossed that Pete and Carl's recent reunion might turn into more, though. Their creative forces combined makes them untouchable and god-like - alone, they're both just geniuses. :)

Yum yum yum

If this music was food, I would eat it until I got obese! YEAH! I like to play If You Love a Woman really loud in my car. I also like to play all of the other songs really loud in my car. I also would like to take this opportunity to profess my love to Carl Barat. Hmm, okay, that's all.

Identify, don't compare!!!!!!

Stop the comparisons to Babyshambles, and The Libertines, for that matter!!! This Album is straight up Carl Barat at his best. The Album is punky, full of spit and spirit. The wonderfully written songs are fast paced, and packed with precise lyricism that no baby in a shamble mess could have created. That said...Purchase this. Just as you would Babyshambles, Wolfman w/ Pete D., and The Libertine's. You WILL NOT be disappointed!

Biography

Formed: 2004 in London, England

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

After the Libertines broke up in fall 2004, singer/songwriter and guitarist Carl Barat began work on his next musical project. Signing to the U.K. label Vertigo almost immediately after the band dissolved, Barat worked on songs on his own and eventually recruited his former bandmate Gary Powell as the drummer for his new group. He also brought in Anthony Rossomando — who had been Pete Doherty's replacement in the Libertines when Doherty was arrested in summer 2004 — as second guitarist....
