For He's a Jolly Good Fellon

By Lostprophets

'For He's a Jolly Good Fellon' is everything you love about Lostprophets: minus that one great hook.

The chorus seems to be building towards the irresistible, shout-along Lostprophets crescendo they've always managed to deliver in the past - but then it just continues in the same fashion. The promise of one moment of chewy-centred pop-rock perfection is dangled in front of the listener's face, but it never actually arrives.

'For He's a Jolly Good Fellon' instead serves up some snappy call and response vocals and the occasional "whoa-oh-oh!" but it just doesn't cut it. By no means a bad song, Lostprophets have nevertheless proved they can do much, much better than this.

They've lost is since Start Something. No edge anymore.

I have to agree. Trying to be too mainstream and going down the Feeder route. They will end up sounding like Coldplay if they don't pull it back.
