Editors’ Notes

Razorlight’s third studio album is its most ambitiously produced, an often willful turn away from the band’s past. The opening track/first single “Wire to Wire,” finds songwriter/vocalist Johnny Borrell (who shares writing credits on four tracks with since-departed drummer Andy Burrows) turning sharply from the band’s anthem-rock roots into emotive, piano-driven balladry. That new emotional resonance surfaces again on the standouts “60 Thompson” and the slow-burn build-up of “Stinger,” a balancing act Borrell pushes completely over the top (with less success on “Blood for Wild Blood” and “Monster Boots”) before “House,” a paean to his dead father, triumphs by the sheer force of his personality. Ironically, it’s the band’s more familiar material here — infectious, Britpop-suffused tracks like “Tabloid Lover” and “North London Trash” — that takes focus off the album's otherwise more mature, emotionally-challenging thread. Call it a stylistic breakthrough haunted as well by the ghosts of Razorlight’s past.

Love this CD

First time ever hear'n these guy and now I'm hooked. I will be buy'n all of their stuff from now on. Great band to add to my collection.


Kinda sounds like if Kooks, Kings of Leon made a slow album.

Razorlight’s new CD is creative and original, the sound is perfect, anyone that appreciates real music will love this. The new album has songs you can dance to and music you can come home and chill out to. What’s there not to love? Five stars guys. :] If anything, at least download "blood for wild blood", its my favorite on the CD.

Joined by bassist Carl Dalemo and drummer Christian Smith-Pancorvo, the combo recorded several demos at London's Toe Rag studios, and those songs led to radio exposure and the initial stirrings of hype. Mercury Records signed Razorlight in 2003, and the group began recording its debut album amidst a series of hectic (and increasingly buzzworthy)...
