The Fratellis

Fourth full length release from Glasgow three piece The Fratellis. This record is an excellent Alt-Rock record, full of big sound and big hooks, I was super impressed. RIYL: The Fratellis, Franz Ferdinand, Fitz and the Tantrums…etc

Recommended tracks: 1, 2, 3, 9

1. (5:37) Me and the Devil - Awesome, heavy drum beat, urgent lyrics, great lead into this record.
2. (3:39) Imposters (Little by Little) - More of an Americana vibe, beautiful song, one of my favorites.
3. (3:48) Baby Don't You Lie to Me! - Uptempo, almost feels like an Elton John song, the melody is infectious, LOVE!!
4. (3:39) Desperate Guy - Mid tempo, great harmonies, another great track.
5. (3:28) Thief - This is very Fitz and the Tantrums-y, lots of noise, lots of epic sounding vocals, super catchy etc.
6. (3:43) Dogtown - A song to stomp your foot to, impossible not to bob your head a long, more gritty rock track. Super good.
7. (3:32) Rosanna - Mid/uptempo pop-rock, another great melody.
8. (4:42) Slow - Down tempo, reminds me a bit of the Brandon Flowers record, theatrical etc.
9. (3:52) Getting Surreal - This is awesome, almost sounds like an old Spoon song, heavy focus on the piano and guitar, driving beat.
10. (4:03) Too Much Wine - Uptempo rock song, nothing special.
11. (3:41) Moonshine - Downtempo, not my favorite.
12. (3:16) Down the Road and Back... Again… - Uptempo and fun.
13. (3:13) Medusa in Chains - Down tempo and mellow.
——These next ones are all just acoustic versions of other songs on the record.
