This band offers far more than just Rooftops or Last Train Home.
The opening track, "If it Wasn't for Hate, We'd Be Dead by Now," serves as a solid intro to what it set to follow--a short but sweet prelude to a much grander stage. "Dstryr/Dstryr" soon kicks the album into the stratosphere, evoking familiar feelings (i.e., The Fake Sound of Progress) and intertwining chunky riffs reminiscent of "Bulls on Parade"/"Sleep Now in the Fire" by Rage Against the Machine - an overall VERY solid track! It was a bit surprising--though not unwelcome--to hear how often an expletive is spit from lead singer-Ian Watkins' tongue throughout this disc, in comparison to the last few. It is not overwhelming, but instead strategically placed to accentuate the intensity of the music.
The next two songs, "It's Not the End of the World, But I Can See it From Here" and "Where We Belong", serve as the album's first two singles and are cut from the same slate of past radio releases. Arguably, Lostprophets' singles have rarely showcased the full potential of this band and these two cuts are no different. They're not bad, just not great - though the latter of the two does capture a bit of the sound that Lostprophets produced with their biggest hit to date, "Last Train Home."
"Next Stop Atro City" is a relentless, adrenaline-fueled rocker that reproduces the 'scream-o' style that was used heavily in their debut.Read more ›
This album has a little bit of everything. It has fast paced songs for the old fans, catchy songs for the new, and the remainder are a combination of both the former and the latter.
My only gripe with this album is that the standard version only comes with 11 songs. They've been gone since 2006.. so I was hoping for a few more songs on there.
Overall, 5 out of 5. If you're a lostprophets fan that yearns for a return to the old days, then I'm sorry, that's not going to happen. Music fans need to learn to let go of the old material as bands find different outlets, sounds, and ways of expressing themselves. Enjoy the album for what it is, a well put together collection of songs.
