    I have had this album for the last 5 days on a promo copy and thought at first its was not an instant pleaser like their first. After several plays it is starting to grow on me.

    Favourite track at the moment is 505.

    what are your thoughts if you have got this album or heard it.

    Just given it a listen - not decided yet. I think you're right in that it's a bit of a grower, 'cos i didn't like it as much as the first album on the first listen. But I'll give it time.

    Had this album for a couple of weeks now and is sure a grower. like all tracks but track 3 & 4 both are very weak thats my thought.

    Does no one else have this album or a opinion on it?

    I agree his voice is distinctive but so are a lot of other bands. You must give it a listen tracks 5,6 & 12 are the best but you have to give it a few listens.

    I must agree they were very tight on Jools Holland last night, and yeah they have that little extra than most other bands around.

    I couldn't agree anymore if I wanted to, You have to give this album at least 5 or 6 listens before it starts to shine. It reall is very very good. Such a clever and original song writer too. Just stick with it, I know at first listen you think "thats the dificult second album curse again then" but it is class.

    The sound is similar to their first album so it doesn't immediately hit you - if you like the first album you'll know whats coming. After a few listenings you begin to get into the lyrics, which are again very clever.

    As above its taken a several listens to get right into it, but I think its good :thumbsup:.

    Agree with most posts here.

    I liked the 1st album, and this one is more of the same.

    I think lyrically they are very clever but the sound is much the same throughout a lot of their stuff (like most bands I guess).

    I would say their albums are 7/10, but I don't understand how the band get such rave reviews. Each to their own I suppose.

    As a final point. I believe the 2nd album is 37mins long. Thats a disgrace for such an anticipated album. And it took so long to write these 37mins? Come on guys, lets give the punters some value for money - a CD can hold 80mins you know!!

    I thought that they were very good on Jools Holland, especialy 505. For me this album is better than the last, although not really my cuppa meat

    I would agree that they do get more hype than they deserve, but saying that they are still very good.

    If you like this type of stuff try out LITTLE MAN TATES album or THE RIFLES album both very good with some good lyrics. Thats my thought's again anyway.

    only heard a few songs off the new album but i think there quite good, coming from sheffield, and living in highgreen were apparantly some members used to live and going to barnsley college to do music they did kinda get on my nerves cause it was like artic monkeys this and arctic monkeys that it was reyt annoying especially one of my teachers rich t if anyone knows him youll know what i mena he propor bums them.

    but any way they are good but no were near the hype they got but i do like them for what they are.
