Their line-up is Ian Watkins (vocals), Jamie Oliver (keyboards, turntables, vocals), Stuart Richardson (bass), Mike Lewis (guitars), Lee Gaze (guitars) and Luke Johnson (drums).

Those 2 stars are for the first two songs alone.

Welsh Grunge has never really dominated the floor of modern music, but Lostprophets has always managed to produce songs that are as catchy as bubblegum pop, deep as angsty political punk, and as lyrically impressive as the ballads of the 80s and early 90s. This album is different from Liberation Transmission, and especially different from Start Something, but contains the same core angry sound combined with ironic one liners, impressive chorus, and dominating instrumentals. This is a solid album for any punk rock reminiscer, or anyone impressed with downright good music with strong meaning and lyrics.

From start to finish, this album is solid, catchy, infectious, and just good. These guys just know how to write/record a great album.

Weapons (2012) is the fifth studio album from Welsh rockers the Lostprophets. The album finds the band at a crossroads. It tries to balance the personal, reflective aspects of Liberation Transmission with the us-against-the-world mentality of The Betrayed. The album chugs along nicely through the first half, but as is common for many rock `n' roll albums, the quality of the second half material leaves a lot to be desired. The listener will find themselves lost in a sea of banality as the album sputters to a conclusion. Despite the obvious shortcomings in the second half, the album has just enough energy and charisma to earn a cautious recommendation.

The album opens with the Lostprophets in full-on defiance mode. "Bring `Em Down" and "We Bring An Arsenal" are an effective one-two punch to get things started. The band unleashes a torrent of aggression and the background chants give each of the songs a welcome air of rebelliousness and attitude. The latter song in particular evokes images of 1960s radicals joined together in protest, captured by lines like, "If you bring a gun/ We'll bring an arsenal!" This unruly disposition fits the band like a glove and provides a powerful jolt to kick off the album.

The positive momentum continues with "Another Shot". The focus shifts to a more personal nature, as Watkins vents about the anguish caused by a deteriorating relationship. The crunchy, down-tuned guitars come to life in the chorus as Watkins cries, "Another shot to my heart I need (make it stop)/ And there's a lot that I need to do/ And I cannot let this part of me/ Be a part of you". The early run of quality tracks continues with "Jesus Walks". It opens with an oscillating lead guitar hook and slowly builds to a rousing chorus.

Great CD and was shipped next day after the purchase, but it is a shame that the lead singer was just sentenced to prison in England for the worse case of child molestation and rape the country has ever seen!

Those 2 stars are for the first two songs alone. I've liked all their albums up til now, culminating in my favourite, 'The Betrayed'. Losprophets always seemed to be striving for a bit of credibility, trying to prove they weren't the same as Linkin Park and a dozen other 'safe' rock bands. That snottiness served them well, and they never seemed to realise that there was nothing wrong with being a great pop-rock band who wrote great, noisy singalong anthems. Recent quotes have said things like 'If you like All-American Rejects, you'll like this', and that's the problem; you probably will, mainly 'cos it sounds just like the Rejects and a bunch of other generic soundalikes. They no longer sound like Lostprophets. This isn't the sound of a band 'maturing'; it's the sound of a band getting tired of not being quite as big they wanted, and changing to try and get there.

I always listened to their old albums and was waiting until a new album came out. I thought this band disappeared but here is yet another great album by The Lostprophets. Great tracks and songs are clear and the band sounds great! I can't even tell you what my favorite track is because it all sounds great! Great consistent, catchy tunes. If you liked their old album you will probably like this new one.

I used to be a big fan of the band, and never took "start something" out of my truck. Then came "liberation transmission", and i could tell that they were not the same. This album is the continuation of that descent. Maybe iv'e gotten older, and my musical choices have changed, not sure, but i would not recommend this to anyone. In my opinion, if you couldn't get all the way through "liberation transmission", you wont even want to try this one.
