I've listened to this album over and over and can honestly say its one of the best albums I own currently and have heard in my life.

Just got the album, and wow. For nineteen year olds the lyrics and musicianship is suprisingly grwn up. Its pretty damn good for an indie band

Great album, definitely a fav.

This is great. When The Sun Goes Down is probably my current favourite, but there are a lots of great tracks. I like Riot Van as well. A welcome break from all the energy (Strategically placed in the middle of the album)

nme.com was right, it seems. Great review.

This album has grabbed me more immediately than any albums I've listened to in quite some time. It might not be the kind of record you keep coming back to for years and years. It's just catchy music at its very best, guaranteed to make you smile. And that's good enough, if you ask me.

Go check this out. Now.This Message Edited On 02.07.06

I bought this album today, I was in the cd shop and didn't know it was out yet. I've only listened to it once but I've heard the singles countless times, I really, really, really, really don't get the big deal. Good album, yes. The kind of thing I like, yes. But hardly revolutionary. Oh the joys of hype.

I will give it time to grow on me but I doubt I'll look back in 10 years and rank this among Definitely Maybe, Different Class, or Parklife.

From what I've heard, they're okay. I don't really understand what makes them so partticularly different from the rest of the other bands, or better yet - what makes them so great. They're pretty average judging from the 4 songs that I've heard, but nothing I would listen to frequently.

You're welcome, I guess.

Also, just a reminder that nobody in the US knows or cares about this band. The music hype machine is a one-way conduit, so far anyway

Well, their EP releases have gone unnoticed on iTunes, and I haven't really seen much about them in the media, except for this site =) I'm interested though, and want to listen to the full album.

Weird I always though US and Canada release dates were the same.

It is worth purchasing.

I listened to it a lot, listened to Radiohead for a bit, then went back and thank god I still love it.
It's a keeper, one of the best debuts ever

The real strength of this band is not the band itself, but Alex Turner. He has a real swagger to his voice.This Message Edited On 02.21.06

I saw this album only a few days ago, but I didn't pick it up. Now I wish I had. You're such a master storyteller, Iai!

sorry guys. But this album has nothing particularly special about it. i have heard a few rtacks and teh yseem to me to be the same. The fact that NME likes it and put it on a best album ever list or somethig above albums like The betales revolver is just sick. These guys make too much of a thing about being british and northern. But its not like they have social commentary or anything. They are no pulp or smiths(whom i also dont like but repsect their popularity) and are overpopular. Will ppl start writing songs that can havea broad appeal without making a big thing about where they are from. I'm form hull, I live in portsmouth. I dont mention that much in my songs, because that makes boring music.This Message Edited On 03.03.06

Although the music isn't what i usually like, the lyrics are probably the most witty and intelligent i have heard out of the British rock scene in a very long time.

Great review.

Agreed that Alex Turner is the strength
That NME top 100 was a pile of fuck
I disagreed with every single position. Some of it defied belief, you'd have to see the full thing to truly understand how retarded NME writers are
