Play.com Review

Pop punk provocateurs and current chart frontrunners, Noisettes, return to make the most explosive of impacts with their second album, Wild Young Hearts. Bathed in all of the feisty spirit that shaped their earlier work, the East London innovators experiment with timeless styles and modern day flare, to deliver a super hip record that confidently defies genres and oozes cool.

When Noisettes landed in 2007, with their debut album What's The Time Mr Wolf?, they stood out from the crowd. Crawling with originality, the revved-up rockers demanded attention with a compelling collection of spirited numbers. The tracks showcased not only the band's colliding sound but also the vocal talents of frontwoman, Shingai Shoniwa. Bouncing from jittery and demanding to seductive and agile, Shingai's tones flirted with jazz and soul influences whilst still hitting hard with a rock spite that demonstrated the musical alchemy of Noisettes perfectly. Overflowing with passion, presence, and eclecticism, Wild Young Hearts continues confidently on the winding path where their acclaimed debut left off. 'Sometimes' starts the album in glorious acoustic fashion, with layered lines and Billy Holiday-esque tones, the track builds to a crashing crescendo through its smoky, '40s inspired exterior. Seemingly different to anything the band has delivered before, the creeping opener creates a tension that flows through the remainder of the record. The electrifying, 'Wild Young Hearts' follows, bringing up the tempo with enough screeching synths and joyful howls to become an overnight dancefloor filler. That indie-dance-pop vibe continues with top 5 smash 'Don't Upset The Rhythm' and 'Saturday Night'. With anthemic choruses and soaring melodies, the tracks sparkle with disco vibes yet retain originality due to the band's playful structure.

Noisettes' ability to morph vintage styles into modern musical nuggets is expertly demonstrated, particularly on the '60s-soul-tinged 'Never Forget You'. By shaking up and bringing together a selection of genres, the band have created exciting pop songs that add enough twists and vigour to delight listeners of all musical sects. Original, adventurous, and highly infectious, Wild Young Hearts is a modern day classic that will hold its own for years to come.

 dont judge this album by one song!

OK 'don't upset the rhythm' was only a catchy hit, but don't give up on the noisettes so easily. This album is relaxed as well as punchy. I love it! new single 'Never Forget You' is jazzy and opens a new genre in the album, which contrasts greatly to 'Don't upset the Rhythm'. If you like up beat ballads as well as chilled out easy listening tracks- buy this album. good band :)

As a fan of their under the radar first album, I was extremely excited about the release of their follow up album "Wild Young Hearts" and I must say, they really HAVE delivered. The album is a funky, cool and imaginative roller coaster with most of the tracks being stand out! "Don't Upset The Rhythm" speaks for itself, whilst "Sometimes" and "Never Forget You" show a smoother side (Reminiscent to Morcheeba). Personally, the best track on the album is the title track "Wild Young Hearts", it has summer anthem written all over it. I would recommend this album to most people with the utmost confidence.

 Can't go wrong with it

Great price, great album! Although i really liked it from the start this album is certainly a grower and i love it more now than i did when i first bought it. With a mix of slow and up-tempo songs and with both pop and rock influences the music is undeniably good but would be lacking a certain something if it wasn't for shingai's beautiful and distinctive voice. Its a great car album and i urge any one to support this home grown band and to see them live as i recently have, they were amazing.

This album is amazing, each song is brilliant and at least 4 are used for adverts. I saw them live earlier this month and they were brilliant, the energy they had was unreal! Definitely worth buying!

With the exception of the most annoyingly over-used and over-rated song, Don't Upset The Rhythm ((Go Baby Go)), this album is in fact rather good.
Every song shows off the power of the vocalists voice and some of them are rather catchy.
Just skip track two.
