The Fratellis: In Your Own Sweet Time [Album Review]

In Your Own Sweet Time

Who: Scottish three-piece with their fifth full-length album.

Sound: Barroom rock that you can dance to.

TFN Final Take: The new Fratellis album gets off to a great start with “Stand Up Tragedy” and “Starcrossed Losers.” Both are bouncy numbers that showcase the ebullience of the band, who are always eager to please. That effect dwindled with each subsequent song, each one seemingly evoking the stylings of their predecessors. There isn’t enough lyrical depth to make up for that sameness; The Fratellis have always told tales of getting down and dirty and they remain true to form. It’s a lot of fun to spend ten minutes with The Fratellis on In Your Own Sweet Time; whether or not you’ll spend 46 minutes (in one dose) is another question.

I appreciate being able to write for The Fire Note, as it gives me an excuse to keep up with what's happening in new music.

By day I am a dad and a psychologist; I often use music as a way to connect with both my kids and my clients. One of my proudest moments as a father was when my 12-year-old daughter told me of her undying love for Radiohead.
