Hard-Fi – Killer Sounds (2011)

Tired Pony - The place we ran fromI love a bit of Hard-Fi I do! Third album from the band from Staines and they just keep on getting better in my book. A bit of British indie rock with attitude.

Every time I listen to their albums I think they can’t beat that with the next album but they keep doing it.

Stars of CCTV has their biggest album to date, with their second album Once Upon A Time In The West a good offering but it didn’t get flash reviews.

Really like the start of Killer Sounds, Good For Nothing is a cracking first track and Bring It On is also a stand out. Fire In The House is the second single from the album so probably not catchy enough to give it the push it needs.

Anyway what you think?

  1. Yeah….I like Hard-Fi. I guess its hard not to really. Catchy rock guitar tunes are always going to get my vote. Having said that, whenever I see them play on TV, or in their videos it almost feels like I’m watching a bunch of high-school teens pretending to be rock stars. The lead singer seems to lack any charisma. Ah well……I guess some bands are just better on the ipod.

    After a few listens I think this album will stand up well against their previous offerings. It sounds a bit over-produced in parts but on the whole a solid effort. All being said though, I very much doubt people will be listening to Hard-Fi 30 years from now and commenting how great they were.

  2. I’m glad I read the review and comment above before dismissing this album as total crap. The first listen was such a huge disappointment. But I stuck with it. Now it’s on heavy rotation, and was quite a nice accompaniment on a recent road trip. It’s not nearly as good as “Stars of CCTV.” IMO, I thought they probably spent a little too much time partying in Ibiza, unduly influenced by the club beats. But I’ve since come around in my thinking.

    Favorite track: Bring It On
