Editorial Reviews

2010 release, the fourth studio album from the hard-hitting Welsh Metal heroes. The sextet's first two albums, 2000's The Fake Sound Of Progress and 2004's Start Something, won them national acclaim, before third release, Liberation Transmission, saw the band win two Kerrang! awards. This fine work is continued on The Betrayed, which is a much darker, grittier long player. As with previous releases, instrumental interludes frequently contribute to the listening experience, with singles 'It's Not The End Of The World But I Can See It From Here' and 'Where We Belong' among the highlights. Although, at times, album number four could be described as lyrically aggressive in tone, the big hooks that have made the band a worldwide sensation very much remain - having road tested these songs live since 2007, there is an evident sense of confidence on display throughout. Intelligent, assured and littered with festival-sized moments of heavy metal genius, The Betrayed is another jaw-dropping smash from one of the most innovative Rock bands of recent years.

Seriously an amazing album. Too bad Ian likes little kids.... The rest of the band is still cool though so don't hate the whole group!

I'm a new fan since seeing them at the 2012 Warped Tour. I bought 3 out of their 5 albums the same week seeing them live. I wish I found out about them sooner as I'm afraid Weapons may be their last album. I have all five of their albums & I find myself playing Betrayed over their other four albums.

This band offers far more than just Rooftops or Last Train Home.

Again, I am pleased to own the another excellent Lost Prophets Album. While many people miss the days of "Fake Sound of Progress" I have enjoyed the direction in which the band has gone, mixing upbeat songs with some much more intense-fast paced-hard rock titles. Start to finish, an excellent listen. I would say this album is more of a cross between "start something" and "liberation transmission", started out fast, mellowing out, back to fast, and then calming down in the last couple of tracks. Now if only Itunes would stop being lame and release in the US, but thankfully there is still amazon and vendors who will ship it to you!

very interesting album to listen to. couldn't get it on the itunes store so i bought it here. very interesting to hear the blended sounds of their previous albums (start something & last transmission) with a darker tinge to them.

Now it is hard to give a star rating having only had it for a day, though I've already listened to the whole album 4 or 5 times and I do love it. I am most definitely a Fake sound of progress fan, it was much heavier. And start something too also hardcore, though it started to go towards the poppier sound of liberation transmission. Which I still consider a good album, but not as good as the prior in terms of my expectation of their style. But that's the past albums this one kind of has I might say The real sound of progress? (I think they should release a album of that title). There are new styles like 'where we belong' connects to their welsh culture. There is still some poppy songs like the it's then end of the world. But it is much darker than LT and much better. There is a much heavier feel and sound, but they didn't completely abandon the style of LT. I kinda got what I expected a mix of all of them and a little bit of new style. I was a little worried buying this because of the single 'it's the end of the world...' Though catchy and a good song, I was really hoping that that was what had become of the band that wrote songs like ' a thousand apologies' or 'the handsome life of swing'. And it isn't what became of them. Realistically they would be stupid to abandon the Lib Transmission style because of the fan base they would destroy. Though I feel this is a great show of what the lostprophets are. There are many other connections to their roots like little inbetween things between the tracks. So really it's hard to classify any one style or genre to this album because it kinda fits more than one. But I for one say that I am satisfied and many of my expectations were met. There's songs for every fan I guess you could say.

The Betrayed is the fourth studio album recorded by the Welsh-band Lostprophets. The band follows the same formula it has used in previous effort, but updates song structures of The Betrayed to offer an evolved, yet polished sound, pleasing old-school fans as well as new. Complete with the interludes that were scattered throughout the band's first two albums, The Betrayed is a welcome return to the sound that put Lostprophets on the map.

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.

I've been waiting for this album ever since Liberation Transmission. I'm going to say right now that I'm not a huge fan of their first album. It was good, yes, but it's nearly as good as some 'Prophet fans hype it up to be.

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.
