The Libertines: Up The Bracket

These are a few British blokes who are trying to be the newest group of punks to capture our heart. Well, Libertines, my heart belongs to you. In a good way, their eclecticism reminds me of The Coral, which is my other favorite Brit group of the moment. Although the Coral have mastered Pirate-rock, these cats lack that sort of singular vision. They seem to care about making good songs, regardless of what classification they may fit in. Ballad, driving pop-punk song or lil' ditty, it don't matter -- the Libertines just want to make good songs.

And so, you get sucked in. Buy this record if you like rock music.
