THE GENTLEMEN A Candid History Of Faith, Hope, Love (2009)

The Gentlemen

Another album at the heavy end of pop. Loosely there is an element of guitar pop, but equally indie, and the mix of 2 guitars or guitar/piano and some decent tunes make for pleasant if light listening.

The vocals move in and out of falsetto, giving a Justin Hawkins feel.

'Unique' is typical of the era, with plenty of jangly upper mid range strumming, but the vocals and rhythms carry it off. There’s some good work in 'I’m Not Leaving', an adept track with nice layered backing vocals that would suit both Radio 1 and Radio 2.

A couple of songs are a little disjointed, and while the band are clearly competent musicians the strength is in the way they’ve come together.

The appeal is definitely in the Q and NME range, but should do well.
