Back to The Futureheads


JUDGING by The Futureheads' forthcoming album This Is Not The World, the band are looking to their past for inspiration.
Following an underwhelming response to their difficult second album News & Tributes and a split from their label, the Sunderland band have returned to the angular post-punk of their debut for their third gamble.
And on tracks like opening salvo and single Beginning Of The Twist and title track This Is Not The World the band sound back to their ferociously quirky best.
However the album soon becomes too full of filler - for example Think Tonight sounds like an Andrew WK b-side - to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with their eponymous debut.
This is not The Futureheads back to their best, but it is a good start.
