Editorial Reviews

The Futureheads' new full-length album, The Chaos will be released June 1st via Dovecote Records. The Chaos is the band's fourth album and arguably their most riotous to date. Following high-profile tours supporting the likes of The Pixies and Foo Fighters, the four-piece buckled down, penning bold, three-minute, heads-down, pop delicacies. The Chaos was recorded over a series of sessions with David Brewis of Field Music and renowned producer Youth (The Verve).

Yes, I'm such a fan of the band I could not wait until June 1st when "The Chaos" is released domestically in the U.S. Instead, I quickly ordered the import.

I've been buying and listening to the band's music since their 2004 eponymous debut. This time around the lads deliver an 11 track (plus 1 hidden track) tour-de-force. This band has so much energy, it makes for a great listen on the way to work in the morning and on the way home in the evening.

As with each Futureheads release, there are a few questionable tracks such as "This Is The Life" and "The Baron", and maybe even the title track, but these are small quibbles. The whole of the album is a rush of adrenaline. Of course the best tracks are "Struck Dumb", "Heartbeat Song", "I Can Do That". They could all be alternative radio hits. The band pushes the envelop slightly with "Jupiter" and the acapella hidden track that follows it. This is great, a band willing to take some chances creatively.

Sadly, The Futureheads are still relatively unknown in the U.S. But that's fine by me. I like having low profile excellent bands in my collection to introduce the uninitiated to.

Here's how "The Chaos" compares to other Futureheads releases:

2004 The Futureheads: Three and a Half Stars
2006 News & Tributes: Three Stars
2008 This Is Not The World: Four Stars
2010 The Chaos: Four Stars

This is the Futureheads fourth album. If you liked the previous 3 then you'll definitely like this one. It's not quite a return to the 'angular pop' that worked so effectively on the first album but instead represents a natural maturation in their song writing ability. Consequently, this work contains some of their strongest material yet.
Note that there is a hidden track after 'Jupiter' and that there is another album version out there (see HMV) that contains 2 additional tracks. and Youth is also once again at the controls on this CD. Buy this album and then look forward to the next one.

This is a super tight record. I think the hooks and the riffs WAY better than their first record. The Chaos is more immediate, excited, and charged. It also sounds great. Which is always nice.
