Showing DFA a thing or two

This album sounds like what the DFA has been trying to nail down for the last few years. LIke the Rapture without a singer with a Robert Smith obsession. Absolutely love Paris and Lovesick, but the whole thing is a good listen - nothing groundbreaking, but very solid. Viva St Albans.

I Love Friendly Fires

This album is incredible from beginning to end. They're the best new sound since Klaxons released their debut. This really sounds fresh and I never get tired of listening to this album. Every single song has something catchy about it that I love. Besides having some of the best music, they also have the best videos. They are really creative in their lyircs and their instrumentation. I really suggest you buy this album.

Friendly Fires absolutely slays

I have no idea how I found Friendly Fires, but I thank God I did. FF is a breath of fresh air: an alt-rock band with a knack for ingenious innovations inside their chosen genre. One only needs to listen to the album opener, "Jump In the Pool," to get a taste for their astoundingly original sound. "Jump In the Pool" is a refreshing, cathartic alt-rock gem with buzzing guitars, echoing and intense synth rings, and tropical-drum breaks that mesh to form an amazing cut.

The rest of the album is just as good. "In the Hospital," "Paris," "Strobe," and "Skeleton Boy" are the other clear highlights, but the entire album is worth a listen. FF is one of the best new bands out there, and I'm psyched they're playing Coachella 2009. Pick this album up, you don't want to miss out on the beauty that is Friendly Fires.
