    Got to hear this CD at our subbuteo tournament and the young ones out of Leeds did not disappoint. This new cd rocks your lame ass with it edgy Led Zeppelin meets the Stone Roses dance tunes.

    This is good stuff.

    For background information - other bands I like:
    Rush
    Zeppelin
    Stone Roses
    Oasis
    Cure
    New Order
    Powderfinger

    and a ton of others.

    I didn't want to like this band for some reason, but this cd is winning me over.

    Why didn't you want to like them?

    Why did you listen to the CD if you didn't want to like them?

    As someone who spent a good ten years of his life obsessing over the Stone Roses, Charlatans, Verve and every other northern England that "really really means it", I can tell you these guys don't appear, at least on the surface, to be bringing anything new to the table. But I like their stuff for the most part, and the Zeppelin influence is pretty sweet.

    If they had been around a few years ago, I would have been all over it. But I'm thirty one, a bit heavier than I used to be, in a relationship and I just grew a beard. Think of me as a less cool John Squier.

    So there you have it.

    Take away the relationship and 4 years and thats why I didn't want to like them either. But perhaps its cause John Squier hasn't done ********, richard ashcroft has gone MOR, and the Charlatans haven't done it for me eithetr that i am tolerating this album. Who knows. I mean, Christ, I found myself singing along with waiting for the sun by the shore. Thats how desperate I am for anything that sounds remotely like the verve right now.

    I guess I'm looking at the Music as my "second coming" of the Stone Roses. Hell I'm older than both of you - but I still need some new music every so often.

    Would Snow Patrol, Modest Mouse, My Morning Jacket or the Walkmen be more up your alley? I'd recommend all of them and the Black Keys if you want something a little bluesier.

    Haven't heard of My Morning Jacket, but none of them work for me like the Music.

    Wish they had a better name though.

    How about Slowdive or Franz Ferdinand? I guess they would more similar.

    I like Franz Ferdinand but got tired of the album quite quickly, maybe I will revisit that one again when I can get it out of my head.

    Not a strong recommendation that is it :)

    Really?

    Well I checked insound.com after you rejected my helpful advice ;) and they list the following as "related artists":

    Primal Scream
    The Vines
    The Coral
    Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
    Richard Ashcroft
    Doves
    The Hives
    Super Furry Animals
    Oasis
    Jane's Addiction
    The Strokes
    The Charlatans UK

    Hope that's helpful. :)

    Oh, I wasn't looking for related bands, just the songs I had heard by the Coral didn't remind me of the Music. Then again, the strokes aren't like them, nor the Hives, no the Vines.

    I'll check MacMusic and see...listened to "Dreaming of You", "Pass it on", Confessions and Bill McCai...they don't remind me of the Music at all.

    They do remind me of the Strokes though.

    That's more like "contemporaries"...they have the same influences as these bands (bar Jane's and the Vines...that's a bit baffling to me), but in reality the finished product sounds very little like any of these groups. Maybe a bit of Super Furry's acoustic/psychedelic stuff like on MWNG or Radiator. The Coral are very much in the Liverpudlian sense of baroque Love/Doors style songwriting.

    They are on their way back to Oz for the BDO tour in January.

    Saw them two years back and they rocked
