Editors’ Notes

Lostprophets’ fifth studio album resonates with the same bloodlust of their first. Right from the opening single, “Bring ‘Em Down,” the Welsh sextet plays with angered urgency, as a needling guitar lead and hammering rhythm set the stage. Frontman Ian Watkins sings alongside his band counting down in gang vocals, while electro-industrial flourishes provide a darkened, kinetic backdrop. But it’s less obvious (and catchier) album cuts like “We Bring an Arsenal” that best exemplify the band’s prowess and chemistry. The group nearly reinvents the power ballad with “Another Shot,” boasting an ascending progression of triumphant guitar chords. When compared to the more formulaic ballad “Somedays,” "Another Shot" provides a more natural take on the band’s penchant for penning dark serenades. “Jesus Walks” overarches to reach for an Arcade Fire–style panorama, making a good argument as to why a band of this ilk needs six members. Saving the best for last, the band makes the title track detonate with a ferocious attack—this is how you close an album.

Customer Reviews

Another good solid album

As one of my favorite bands from college, glad to hear you guys can still deliver a good album. Im about 3/4 through already and know this is gonna be a good one to play all day at the lake. I wish you guys were bigger in the U.S. I enjoy telling people who you guys are when they ask who I am playing on the stereo. One of the very few bands I can grab old cds and play anytime and get some heads moving. This one should be just as easy to play years from now, it just has that fun sound you need.


ian watkins is a monster. do not buy his music!!!!


man....I absolutely LOVE this band guys, I really can't get enough of them. I've been listening to them since their first Album & they just got that look & sound that distinguishes them from any other bands within their respected market.
However, I recently found out that the lead singer (Ian Watkins) is under investigation for under age sex offenses ! (not good my man) I truly cannot keep supporting this band, especially for the accusations which I choose not to write about...since they are just so horrendous. Until proven innocent we shall see, but this is definitely not good guys.

Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins and guitarist Mike Lewis grew up together in the Cardiff satellite town of Pontypridd. They began blending musical genres as members of the band Public Disturbance. Watkins was a drummer at the time, but he moved to vocals when the pair first started experimenting as Lozt Prophetz. Watkins and Lewis flirted with ska and hip-hop at first, then came to an aggressive style of rock that mixed together their longtime love of metal and pop. They also changed the spelling...
