Brought to America by the people who gave us The Strokes and The Libertines, Scottish band The View is a quintessential, supercharged British Power Pop outfit specializing in sub-3:00 slices of controlled mania. Already stars on the other side of the ocean thanks to the catchy hits "Superstar Tradesman," "Wasted Little DJs" and the current "Same Jeans" (I've worn the same jeans for four days...), The View wears it's influences on their sleeves and veddy British they are - Oasis, The Clash, Madness, Squeeze and even T. Rex. Yet somehow the impression I kept getting was that of Herman's Hermits on crystal meth. Not that that's a bad thing.

Spurred on by the fantastic work of lead guitarist Pete Reilly, The View is angst-free fun which could bring back pogoing and other frenetic dancefloor gyrations. Songs like "Dance Into The Night," 'Skag Tragedy" and "Don" are almost epileptic fits set to music - and you can't help responding.

And yet it's the shambling, acoustic "Face For The Radio" that sticks in my memory, perhaps because it brings the goings on to a screeching halt halfway through before they hit full speed ahead immediately following. Maybe we all just needed the chance to catch our breath because The View's "Hats Off To The Busker" is one wild ride.

Climb aboard.

This is not a disposable record. It did not get the attention that the Arctic Monkeys or The Fratellis had despite the superior song writing, superb arrangements and unique vocal attitude. Although they're actually Scottish, if you never get another brit-pop CD again, get this one; you'll never get tired of it.

The View thrill with this their first album, a breakthrough record in the emerging genre of Hobbit Rock. Oddly proportioned small men often communicating in an unintelligible babble, influences are broad and range from the Libertines, Kings of Leon and 1980's underground Scottish performance artists, the Krankies. If you like your rock to be made by small people with big hairy feet, and to sound satisfyingly similar to lots of other bands - Hats off to the Buskers is an essential purchase.

The View are a talent. That's obvious. That their debut album isn't a classic is due to a number of factors; One is vocalist Kyle Falconer (A great name!). He needs to have more faith in himself, be more strident with his self-belief. When he' not trying to sound like Liam Gallagher or the lad from Arctic Monkeys', his delivery is far too polite (my 'polite' way of saying it's wimpy), when it should be high up in the mix, competing on every level with the beefy music.
No shrinking violet, but just not enough earthy swagger, not enough gravel in the delivery. A better producer might help him a bit, but ultimately it's gotta come from him.

More problematic, is the band obviously can't sustain 40 minutes yet. Proof? Two fabulous openers: 'Comin Down' and the excellent single 'Superstar Tradesman'. Bejeez, these lads CAN stir up a pop rage when the mood takes 'em, but unfortunately it's the strength of these two stormers which goes some way to ultimately defeating the rest of the album. Expectations get raised, and when not (quite) realized, leave one with a slightly empty feeling. It's as if they're holding back in case they find themselves outside the fold. Reluctant to break out on their own in case the world turns nasty, but they will have to sometime. Sooner the better.

I feel cruel here, like a tyrannical despot with a cudgel, hitting little pop people for no good reason. Not my fault. Those opening blasts made me hopeful, eager for the rest of the album to be as good, but it isn't.

On the plus side, they have got a sense of humour; check out the insane lyrics to the genuinely punky 'Skag Trendy' or the otherwise dull 'The Don' - but it goes seriously awry on the albums closer, which sounds like 'I Spit On Your Grave' type hillbillies singing by a bayou.

If you like the Arctic Monkeys, Fratellis, Kaiser Chiefs, you'll definitely enjoy the View (yes, pun intended). "Wasted Little DJs" was song of the year in Britain and "Same Jeans" makes me laugh every time I hear it. Good stuff!

yes, upon securing this CD I was up for some fast charged Brit-punk, comparisons to the Jam, Clash, etc. And ain't that a rough road to hoe?
To me - this reminds of the great underated UK rock of Megacity4, the vocals and the strummy sprightly guitars all pay homage to MC4. The two killer tracks (Tradesmen & Wasted little DJ's)for the the album foundation and of course were huge hits in England and here too! yeah right, no doubt carry the album. Grantd, there is a glut of music coming from the UK these days, and most of it is worth listening to. A fine debut and undoubtably more to come from these young Scots.
