Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Rock'n'roll can pretty much burn off pure mythology alone, but what happens when the soap opera of drug abuse and broken friendships threatens to overwhelm the music? That's the problem the Libertines' eponymous second LP must face up to--and while it sometimes struggles to live up to the magic of its predecessor, 2002's Up the Bracket, it's still peppered with enough inspiration to explain why people still care about this band. Co-frontmen Carl Barat and Pete Doherty tackle their problems head on with the opening "Can't Stand Me Now," an anthemic, harmonica-accompanied number with echoes of the Cure's "Lovecats," that sees Barat sum up The Libertines' troubled history in the album's most quotable line: "The boy kicked out at the world/ The world kicked back a lot f***ing harder." Further rollicking moments come on the Barat-sung "Narcissist" and knockabout closer "What Became of the Likely Lads?" But there's some workmanlike moments, and almost inevitably, they feature Pete at the helm: see the hoarse, off-key "Don't Be Shy." All told, a merely good record. If the Libertines truly want a place in rock history, they'll have to prove they have the discipline to channel their undeniable inspiration. --Louis Pattison

Review

"...a grippingly immediate feel. Many songs have the impact of great Buzzcocks and Undertones numbers from the 70's." -- Daily News

"...this second album proves that, at present, the band's ramshackle rock is England's crown jewel." -- Details

"Barat and Doherty trade lines...and the result is a dark, tense record, but one still cracking with life...A-" -- SPIN

"THAT scruffy Brit band the Libertines is the single best rock act to emerge in the last decade-hands down." -- New York Post

"Terrific" -- New York Daily News

"…A loud, taut, propulsive, punk powered display…" -- Los Angeles Times

That scruffy Brit band The Libertines is the single best rock act to emerge in the last decade. -- NY Post

The Libertines have developed an ear for the refined pop that’s as much their national inheritance as sneering pogo punk. -- Spin

The Libertines’ second album is a masterpiece of life-changing rock ‘n roll. -- NME

[The Libertines] is an extraordinary record…an extraordinary and challenging second LP, suffused with tenderness and anger. -- Mojo
