Album Review

Welsh sextet Lostprophets return with their sophomore effort, the ambitious Start Something. Riffing on the road map set in place by Linkin Park and Incubus, Lostprophets produce something that's ostensibly metal, but layered with electronica tweaks, production sheen, and an ever-vigilant ear for radio-friendly hooks. To that end, lead single "Last Train Home" is an unstoppable slice of post-grunge empowerment, guided by a thousand-foot chorus suggestive of the A.F.I. nugget "Girls Not Grey." Other highlights include the more aggressive "Burn, Burn," as well as the unsheathed switchblade of an opener, "We Still Kill the Old Way." Lostprophets might have over-smoothed the rough patches of their debut with this mainstream-ready second effort. But that same studio gloss means Start Something should appeal mightily to fans more into nu-metal for fast and furious pop and gadgetry (think Linkin Park's Meteora) than the guttural groans and anger management seminars of the bald singer contingent.

Customer Reviews

Wonderful Album

A truly great rock album. Ignore the sex charges and enjoy the great music.

Top 5 Favorite Albums of All Time

This is by far the best thing Lostprophets has ever put out there. They've turned into a more pop band since this album, and I still think they're good, but this was the obvious peak of their music career. I wish Lostprophets would go back to this sound. Every Lostprophets fan knows this is their best. It is so amazing start to finish. Buy the whole album, because I listen to a LOTTTT of music (I own probably 200 albums in CD form), and this album is definitely in my top 5 favorite albums of all time. You will NOT regret it.

High School memories

Truly a great album. I listened to this album over and over when I was in high school. This was the peak of this bands career and it was sad they never really went main stream here in the USA. They had one top 20 hit "Last Train Home."
