By Agent Blue
As this CD finished, I found myself asking 'oh right, is that it?' You see, Agent Blue are not the most original band in the world. Nor are they as exciting or as brilliant as the press would like you to believe (needless to say the NME has quite a bit to say about them). 'Something Else' is, dare I say it, pretty boring.
The track basically consists of 1 borrowed punk riff thrown over some fast drumming and snarling vocals. There's not much more to say to be honest, because that is all this track is. Seriously. It's the kind of song that you learn on guitar when you first pick one up. That's pretty much all I can say about it.
If you like the more straight ahead, formulaic moments of say, The Cooper Temple Clause, or the more straight ahead formulaic moments of say, punk rock music from 1977- 2004, chances are you may enjoy. For the rest of you, I suggest you check out something else on the singles rack at Virgin.
