Editorial Reviews

One of Ireland's top-selling recording artists for over half a decade and a favorite of music supervisors for tastemaker shows like Grey's Anatomy, One Tree Hill and The O.C., Bell X1 are a mainstream phenomenon with cult cred. The Irish rockers are bona fide arena-rocking superstars in their home country and sport an ever-growing rabid contingent of U.S. fans being multiplied by the day by serious commercial radio love, including Top 10 hit ''The Great Defector.'' Bloodless Coup marks the band's fifth album and as many marriages of the proven Bell X1 formula with fresh musical textures. This time, the band blends electronic musings with the hook-laden song craft of songwriter and vocalist Paul Noonan. The result is touching songs with propulsive, addictive sonics. Noonan's subject matter ranges from the Irish financial meltdown, to ideal love and the euphoria that can be brought on getting your hands dirty. With Bloodless Coup, Bell X1 yet again walks the tightrope between radio-ready hits and the sophisticated imagery that has become its signature.

I first heard of Bell X1 through Flock. I loved that album, but lost track of them. Bloodless Coup is my second taste. And it's good! Really good. 4 Minute Mile is the immeadiate favorite, and there are no duds either. These guys can write some catchy tunes, but they do more than that. I highly recommend a listen.

Wow...all I can say about this CD is WOW! I cannot get enough of this CD. "Velcro" was the main reason I got this CD to begin with. Then I heard "Nightwatchmen" and needless to say I was hooked. I bought the CD and was so glad I did. "Hey Anna Lena," "Sugar High," "4 Minute Mile," and "The Trailing Skirts of God" are my personal favorites including the two I mentioned above also. Bell X1 is such an amazing band and I wish more people knew about them. Also, if you bought the CD like I did, look at the MP3 version of the CD here on Amazon. There is a bonus track called "Amsterdam Says" which is a must have.

I have heard 2 Bell X1 CD's (love the name of the band btw), Flock and Bloodless Coup and the sound, freshness and energy kept reminding me of another band and then it clicked: early Talking Heads(a few weeks ago I was wondering why at the end they lost those qualities.) I'm glad this Irish band is taking that path and making it a beautiful road to heaven. Looking forward for Bell X1 to break new sound barriers.

I love Bell X1 and this CD did not disappoint me. They show maturity since their 1st CD and have such song variety, that if you don't like one song, you'll like the next 3. I heard Velcro and Nightwatchmen are being showcased the most, but they're actually the 2 songs I liked least on this CD. But the other 8 songs are gems and I play this CD over and over and it gets better each time. Give this a try and if you like it, get their older CD's, which grow on you. Wish this band was more famous in the US, they deserve to be heard more.
UPDATE: I still play this CD constantly and find myself going back to it (and earlier Bell X1 CD's) more than any other CD I have bought in the past 6 months. So I raised the star rating from 4 to 5. Love this CD!!
