Heart Turned To Dead - Switches

Image Hosted by

I hate The Fratellis. So it will pain me greatly that this minor gem of an album will not get close to selling as many copies as Costello Music and has not received half the hype. No, I do not foresee a Brits 2008 win for these boys.

Which is a great shame. Because the fantastic Lay Down The Law is not the only fantastic song that Switches have done.

Drama Queen, The Need To Be Needed, Give Up The Ghost...all great tracks.

Yes, it's hardly the most original album ever, and yes, there are a couple of dodgy moments but for the most part it's fun, disposable pop (in the very best possible way) with an attitude. And I love it.
