Slipway Fires (Vertigo)

Razorlight's Slipway Fires is a difficult album to listen to, as it is nearly impossible to not long for the popular Anglo-Swedish band that broke out in 2004 with such Brit-pop gems as the title track "Up All Night," plus "Rock 'N' Roll Lies" and "Golden Touch." It's not that Slipaway Fires, their third studio outing, is terrible at all, it is simply more subdued than the disc which propelled the band into the spotlight five years ago. Slipway Fires requires a few listens to truly reveal itself, so do yourself a favour; put the time in and you will be richly rewarded with Razorlight tracks such as "Wire to Wire," "60 Thompson" and "Tabloid Lover."
