ALBUM: Lostprophets – "The Betrayed"

Following the hugely popular release Liberation Transmission (2006), the Welsh rockers are back with The Betrayed. From listening to the CD, it is fair to say that there are some songs which have a similar sound to the album The Fake Sound Of Progress as well as the album Start Something.

Im my opinion, what Ian Watkins and the boys have done, is make an album which appeals to old and new fans alike. I think that they have done this very well.

The album opens with the track “If It Wasn’t For Hate, We’d Be Dead By Now”. This is a great opener. You are hit with a solid drum and guitar intro. The guitar work in this track is exceptional. Watkin’s Vocals are heavily emphasised in this song.

Track “It’s Not The End Of The World But I Can See It From Here”, can be said to have the sound of the Lostprophets we are all accustomed to. Its a very catchy song, with great vocals and brilliant guitar – a very rocky song.

Stand out tracks on the CD are definitely: “Dstryr Dstryr”, “If It Wasn’t For Hate, We’d Be Dead By Now” and “Next Stop Atro City”. NSAC is a fast paced track with catchy lyrics.

Personal favourite has to be “Where We Belong”.

Overall, this is a must buy album for Lostprophets fans or rock fans in general. It’s been 4 years since the bands last and you can tell that they have worked extremely hard to keep the old as well as new fans happy.
