Review #10: Beady Eye - Different Gear, Still Speeding

I thought Oasis had split up.


Review #9: Frankie And The Heartstrings - Hunger

It's not a bad album, but it's not anything to get exited about either.
'Fragile' and 'That Postcard' are really good songs, but the rest of the album just seems average at best.
It's a decent record, but it's nothing particularly special.
Nothing else to say really.

Review #8: Yuck-Yuck

It's hard to impress me properly; And It's even harder for a new band who aren't really secure in the music scene. But 'Yuck' have produced a brilliant album.
The fresh guitar sound, much like 'The Vaccines', is what the British music scene really needs at the moment. The vocals are great, resembling that of the 'Cajun Dance Party' days, but somehow they have been improved upon this time. Songs like 'Suicide Policemen' are as memorable as the first level of 'Simon Says'. It is a wonder how people can call some of their work 'music' when there are bands like 'Yuck' out there who produce albums of this outstanding quality.
'Yuck' really deserve appreciation, as this is a tremendous record.

Review #7: Cut Copy-Zonoscope

I have previously been really impressed with 'Cut Copy'. 'Lights and music' is a really good song, and after hearing about them turning down support places with Lady Gaga amongst others, I really thought they were a band who put everything into their music, being dedicated to what they wanted.
But 'Zonoscope' really isn't that good. It's average at best, and I almost didn't want to listen to it after hearing album opener 'Need You Now'. I carried on despite this, but the album didn't feel like anything new was coming from them.
It also felt almost like a chore having to listen to the tracks, especially when only two songs were under four minutes long.
It seems that 'Cut Copy' have forgotten what they were about.
