Drowned in Sound

Ultimately Borrell 1 is a better-than-serviceable rock record complicated by myriad preconceptions, all which are further skewered by some fantastically hubristic song titles. 


Ultimately, it’s sketchy and uneven, ridiculous in as many of the wrong ways as the right, but not quite the disaster its tracklisting would suggest.


Musically confused, frequently lyrically painful, its ego is so overpowering it ends up as a sweet relief against a backdrop of po-faced, fence sitting peers.

The Fly

Masquerading as a relaxed return, ‘Borrell 1’ is a disaster that could obliterate any appeal Razorlight once had.
