Decent Album but Lacks Bite

St. Jude, The Courteeners first album, was a treat to hear. With Oasis dissolved for good, The Courteeners easily took the mantle of ear-splitting Manchester rock, offset with beautiful ballads here and there. What's more, it was their sound; purely Courteeners.

Falcon lacks that spirit and originality. Pressured by their record label to sound more mainstream, Liam and the boys had no choice but to capitulate to board room demands. You can tell which songs are distinctly Courteeners, and you can tell where they gave the label what they wanted.

In short, Falcon is part Courteeners Manchester rock, part faux-Snow Patrol. I think if they ditch this label for a better outfit, we'll hear The Courteeners in their full glory. Still a good album but it lacks the bite of St. Jude.

they over did it doll!

This album is fantastic absolutely brilliant The courteeners are Manchester new heroes great songs and lyrics too!!! and Morrissey loves them....

Great Band

At first I was put off by this one because it is so very different from the excellent debut St. Jude. But after a few listens it hit me and stands as a 5 star work on it's own (maybe 4 1/2). I hope these lads keep at it for a long time to come.
