So, I've always liked the Fratellis since I got their debut and saw them live at the Vfest. I just heard the new album "Here We Stand" and I gotta say it's pretty fucking good. They def make some catchy tunes and in some songs, I feel they went a little more heavy than usual, and that is a + for me.

Standouts:

Shameless
Look Out Sunshine!
Tell Me a Lie

Has any one else heard it?

The new album is a bit of a disappointment. A lot of songs that are just plain bad.

I like the first record a lot - looking forward to the new one. They put on a great show for sure.

the second Fratellis album was very disappointing. It does not hold a candle to the first one. However, they were good at Coachella 2007.

It is better to preserve your fond memories of them at Coachella, because if you hear their new album, it might tarnish those memories.

I am a big Fratellis fan. I have seen them 4 or 5 times now. They always play a great show. Here We Stand was a bit of a shock but it turned into a real grower for me. It has a real classic rock/Bowie feel to it. I didn't enjoy it as much as Costello Music but it's in no way a bad record.

Costello Music is a far superior album, and I tried my hardest ot give Here we Stand a chance. Sometimes, I prefer sophmore albums. Jet's second album is way better than their debut album, even though it bombed in sales.

i couldn't believe how bad the new album was... Costello was in my top 30 last year

but daymm the new one was boring and uninspired
it is close to being the worst album i heard all year
