It’s never going to make any sense with your brain switched on, but pitched at anyone willing to put their synapses on standby, it might well be very clever indeed.
Famous First Words was always going to struggle to live up to the band's bold promises, but it's still a shock at how a Brit-pop scene renowned for its color can be responsible for something so utterly drab.
Famous First Words might not be the worst record you'll hear this year, but it's certainly one of the most pointless.
In execution the whole thing comes off as nothing more than a thinly disguised, crass attempt to smoke latent Oasis fans out of hiding. Unfortunately for them, Beady Eye already beat them to the punch.
The lyrics, in fact, are reason enough to ignore claims that Famous First Words isn’t worth your time. So hilarious is Viva Brother’s addled logic that finding a way to stream it for free is actually highly recommended.
This album is an abomination. It’s a rancid pile of regurgitated tripe.
