Just done a search on this and cant find a thread.

 

This was released on 25.01.2013 and is definitely the best album ive heard so far this year - you all should check this out.

 

Pete Newdeck is a revelation on vocals....never knew he could sing this well. The production is spot on, the songs plain rock and the modern touches fit really well.

 

All in all this is a great album!

Yeah, sounded pretty good after one spin. Great opener. Not sure it's my favourite CD so far, but it's nice. More thoughts to follow soon.

Worst track

 

yeah quite bad indeed, but how the rest of the tracks ? are they really good ?

 

It's not bad, just that the others are better. I like this track, but some of the others are gems.

Not really sure about the dislike for this cover tune. I obviously had no idea in the world it was a cover - never heard of the original in my life - so I just thought it was another album track, and I enjoy it. Killer riffage, good hook, I like it.

Wow, just heard the original and I gotta say, I think I prefer that version. Very nice tune - love the pre-chorus/chorus hook.

yeah just to clarify, i wasnt saying that I didnt like the track, only that it was the worst song on the album, so a poor example to post....not that any of the other tracks are on you tube lol. You know what I mean tho..........

BTW they're from Sweden and I prefer the original too. It was a big hit in Scandinavia and Finland back then.

Just a quick question - why are we all discussing what is basically the worst song on the album?? The mind boggles - this is the only track I skip lol

Never heard the song before either and I also prefer the original....so who is this band Lambretta?


I'm not trying to ruin this thread but this is Lambretta:

Pop/rock band from Sweden, active between 1993-2005, they released 3 albums. Sounds a lot like No Doubt in places.

The bigger hits:

Not a fan of No Doubt at all, but based on those songs, I love Lambretta. Will definitely have to track these discs down. Great stuff.

I wish someone would just start a Lambretta thread and go and gush there.

 

People need to start talking about this excellent release from Tainted Nation - still absolutely loving this album. Apart from this wanky cover virtually every track is a killer.

 

Just how good is 'Hell is a Lie' or 'Haunted'?

Patience, my good man. I need to find a moment to spin it again and then I'll drop some more thoughts on it.

 

I bought the s/t album from Lambretta yesterday. Yeah, you know it.

Just finished a single full spin of this album and while 'Loser' has average verse, but the chorus is pretty nice, and I'm satisfied giving this track a 7/10 or 7.25/10, but for me, there are several other weaker tracks such as 'Nothing Like You Seem' is way too alternative, 'Your Only Friend', 'Never Promised You Anything', 'Don't Tell Me' and the last track are struggling around the 6.5 marks. Best track so far I recall is the opening, 'Dare You', and 'Hell Is A Lie' is pretty nice too but not a fan of the verse; 'Haunted' is also quite okay and 'Who's Watching You' is heavy and the chorus is quite good.

 

Maybe it's just way too modern, I appreciate the heavier vibe from this band, vocal part is quite good but the rest of the gang is just average, I don't remember any memorable solos. Replay value is low for me and I think that matters a lot. Overall, I think this is average stuff, didn't do much and maybe ain't for me.
