Leaves me completely cold
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 02/02/2012 10:27:23
Was this really the best new guitar band of 2010? No wonder X-Factor tripe is so dominant these days. Musically The Drums are a tired retread of The Stone Roses, though admittedly with a singer who isn't as tone-deaf as Ian Brown. A few tunes are catchy, but it's hard to pick out anything which sounds much different from everything else. Lyrically things are even worse - "I thought my life would get easier, instead it's getting harder", "I wanna go surfing", "You were my best friend, and then you died". The idea that this could make any kind of emotional connection is pretty shocking - I've heard more profound offerings in any number of shallow club hits. Pproof that guitar music still has something relevant to say' according to one journo - the mind boggles.

Even better than expected

I bought this album after hearing one of their songs on a music channel. I thought they sounded catchy, and stood out amongst some very bland music at the moment. I wasn't disappointed with my purchase. Sometimes a new album takes a while to 'grow' on me, yet all the songs are so catchy, you feel you know them in no time. It's up-beat and has a refreshing sound. I'd not heard of The Drums before, but I think they're pretty talented; have written some good songs, and the album is well worth a listen.
