 Sequel Falls Short

WAS come back into the fold with Brain Thrust Mastery over three years since thier fine debut album 'With Love And Squalor'. They say the hardest thing to do in music is releasing a solid second album after the first reached lofty heights. Unfortunetly WAS fail like so many before them. Sure there are some catchy tunes such as 'Let's See It' & 'Chick Lit' but they dont stand up to the old classics like 'The Great Escape' and 'It's A Hit'. Overall, a good album but you'll be disappointed if your expecting it to live upto 'With Love And Squalor'

 Never get tired of this.

After having With Love And Squalor on a more or less permenant loop this 2nd album was due to be released and i couldnt wait. My first impression was bad to be honest. Made the mistake of comparing this to the 1st album. Got left in the cd rack for a couple of weeks after the first listen. After hearing the album live tho i had the cd back out again and loved it. This album improves a million fold. Just as good if not better as the 1st. A great album that never gets old. Sorry We Are Scientists for ever doubting you.

 Very different, but in a great way!

Definately don't buy this album if you're expecting more of With Love and Squalor, you'll only be dissapointed.

If however, you approach this new offering with an open mind and appreciation for the potential of these tracks being played live then you'll definately become good mates with this album.

You have to give it a few listens but as soon as you know a couple of the lyrics and melodys it becomes a solid favourite.

I can't wait to go and see them in Nottingham next week and I'm looking forward to see how they make up a set list of this album and the last!

N.B The only track I would avoid is "Spoken For"....but Keith is allowed one mistake in my eyes. :o)

 Not bad... I suppose.

At first I was pretty disapointed with this album, I really loved WAS's first album and this is just... different, really not what I was expecting. Not Worse really but not better. It took me a while to get into (I could probably do with giving it more time to grow on me) and there were some songs that I haven't listened to much because they just dont appeal to me. For some reason a few of the songs on this album remind me of OK GO but maybe thats just me. Not an album i would recommend to anyone really.

Love this album, I was really hoping they would be able to better With Love & Squalor, and this takes them into areas other indie just can't reach. Really interesting musical progression, Chick LIt and Lethal Enforcer are my highlights, can't wait to see em live.
