Customer Reviews

A dud album in my opinion, sorry...

I really wanted to like "Friends," because I love White Lies, but I just couldn't get in to it... Normally, I like at least 4-5 songs from a White Lies album, but this album offered virtually nothing worth purchasing to me. I could not debunk this verdict after listening to the full album 3 times in a row. A majority of the songs sound the same and are just as generic or uncreative as the title for this album. I heard they made "Friends" while transitioning to another label. If that's the case, I feel they were misguided in creating better/quality songs, because "Ritual" and "Big TV" were both amazing albums. Now, 3 years after, they seem to have lost there flavor with this fourth album. I dunno, maybe the songs will grow on me through future playthroughs and I will erase this review. Just my opinion though...I hope White Lies continues to make more music in the future.


I'm starting to feel like a crackhead you has been too long without a fix waiting for the next song to be released before the full album arrives!!!!

That's what I'm taking about!

White Lies really saved the best songs for the full album release. This album is a bit different from their others. This one is a bit more laid back and 80s pop feeling in a way, but not quite all the way. It's definitely unique and different from their other albums, while at the same time retaining the definitive White Lies sound. Though there are a couple songs that don't blow me away (they aren't bad, they just don't stand out to me or seem to repetitive, or both), the others more than compensate. Big TV was my favorite album, however, now I feel that this album has reached a tie with it, but with a different sound and style. Fantastic album and addictive new sound!


Formed: 2004 in London, England

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

A dark-edged trio hailing from London, White Lies take sonic cues from the likes of Joy Division, the Teardrop Explodes, and Echo & the Bunnymen. Indeed, the three musicians are so committed to the U.K.'s post-punk scene that they signed with Fiction Records, a Polydor imprint best known for its '80s releases by the Cure and the Associates. While attending school in West London, singer/guitarist Harry McVeigh, bassist/lyricist Charles Cave, and drummer/keyboardist Jack Lawrence-Brown formed the group...
