The Whip - X Marks Destination

This is the first review I have given to a band I have actually thought was bad.
I bought this album on a recommendation (cheers Barry). The album was designed by Village Green of Fabric fame and it looks great. The sound is catchy, there is no question of that but the best songs sound like a really bad Joy Division. Also the lyrics are appauling. This is a very popular sound at the moment and to be fair they do sound better than a lot on the scene but I was left feeling like I would have rather spent that tenner on Cut Copy or Late of the Pier's album
