Never Complete

By The Please

When a comparison copout is available it is bound to be used lazily to speed up the record-in-review-out process, so if we were to tell you that The Please have all that made being Strokes-like cool, you would rightly start to wonder whether we had found an easy option and baled. What with the telltale "The" name and all... but not so - well yes - so there are obvious comparisons to be made with new-wave garage mod (whatever) revivalists, and the hook-laden yet simplistic guitar melodies allow The Strokes to lead the way. But there are moments where a cross-reference to Smiths wouldn't go amiss either; in fact the About Me intro also has a touch of Broken English (and Police) about it before the track ventures further into low-tempo classic cool - "You're still all I know about me" - and has the best one string blink-and-you-miss-it solo of the year! Effective pop-sensibilities all the way, very British (which American bands seem to be doing so well of late), and that gets my vote on a gloomy rainy Saturday evening...
