Sugar High


“Sgt Pepper’s killed music!” Bell X1 frontman Paul Noonan is laughing down the phone from Dublin. “Ian Stewart said so. Wonderful as it is, it encouraged people to use the studio as an instrument, to faff away in there to their heart’s content. Instead of having their shit together before they went in, and to use the studio take a good photograph of where ... Read more in Amazon's Bell X1 Store

Editorial Reviews

One of Ireland's top-selling recording artists for over half a decade and a favorite of music supervisors for tastemaker shows like Grey's Anatomy, One Tree Hill and The O.C., Bell X1 are a mainstream phenomenon with cult cred. The Irish rockers are bona fide arena-rocking superstars in their home country and sport an ever-growing rabid contingent of U.S. fans being multiplied by the day by serious commercial radio love, including Top 10 hit ''The Great Defector.'' Bloodless Coup marks the band's fifth album and as many marriages of the proven Bell X1 formula with fresh musical textures. This time, the band blends electronic musings with the hook-laden song craft of songwriter and vocalist Paul Noonan. The result is touching songs with propulsive, addictive sonics. Noonan's subject matter ranges from the Irish financial meltdown, to ideal love and the euphoria that can be brought on getting your hands dirty. With Bloodless Coup, Bell X1 yet again walks the tightrope between radio-ready hits and the sophisticated imagery that has become its signature.

I loved Velcro from the beginning. The rest of the CD really grows on you. I look forward to investigating more of Bell X1's work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Bell X1 May 20, 2011
By CPage
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love Bell X1 and this CD did not disappoint me. They show maturity since their 1st CD and have such song variety, that if you don't like one song, you'll like the next 3. I heard Velcro and Nightwatchmen are being showcased the most, but they're actually the 2 songs I liked least on this CD. But the other 8 songs are gems and I play this CD over and over and it gets better each time. Give this a try and if you like it, get their older CD's, which grow on you. Wish this band was more famous in the US, they deserve to be heard more.
UPDATE: I still play this CD constantly and find myself going back to it (and earlier Bell X1 CD's) more than any other CD I have bought in the past 6 months. So I raised the star rating from 4 to 5. Love this CD!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bloodless Coup is a must have... September 2, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Wow...all I can say about this CD is WOW! I cannot get enough of this CD. "Velcro" was the main reason I got this CD to begin with. Then I heard "Nightwatchmen" and needless to say I was hooked. I bought the CD and was so glad I did. "Hey Anna Lena," "Sugar High," "4 Minute Mile," and "The Trailing Skirts of God" are my personal favorites including the two I mentioned above also. Bell X1 is such an amazing band and I wish more people knew about them. Also, if you bought the CD like I did, look at the MP3 version of the CD here on Amazon. There is a bonus track called "Amsterdam Says" which is a must have.
