They're in the fucking DARK alright!

Rogue Traders
Better In The Dark
1.5/5

The Rogue Traders new album is titled 'Better In The Dark'...........um..........no, clearly being in the dark did NOTHING good for them since the new album is seriously a boring fucking piece of crap.

Honestly, is it too much to ask for a pop/electro/rock band to actually give us some fucking catchy hooks!!!! their first album was decent...........a handful of pretty good rock/electro mashed popiness was DELIVERED too me on a shiny red and white coloured disc...........but they DID fail to REALLY grasp my mind, they NEARLY reached it....but.....at the end of it all............they didn't. They just managed to shake up the room a little.
So here comes their second album, i ready myself to turn up my speakers and hear the ripping guitars and pumping base line.....and what do i get..................boring same ol' bullshit from pretty much track 1 through to track 12. Their new single lacks ANY sort of bite, it's got that catchy RT sound too it, but the melody is non existent.....and as usual, the chorus is piss weak.
I don't ride them off just yet though.............i wait to give the album a spin...............i was expecting a LITTLE something like their first album managed to deliver, but no................nothing.
There is ONE cool track though, one songs that actually *DUN DUN DUN" has a melody!!!!!!! it DID manage to ENTER my neo cortex! the song is 'What You're On'.

Look, they ARE decent band, they are great live, the lead singer Ms. Natalie has a great voice and they have charisma and a very likable way about them. But for someone like me who LOVES this type of music, they really don't seem to be doing it for me. From time to time they do impress me, but there's never been one SOLID moment of music PERFECTION that has made me say "wow! fucking wow!

Rogue Traders - 'Better In The Dark'................more like 'Better Off Re-doing This Shitty Boring Album'.

I've sat through a few albums this year that were meant to be a step above, but wound up sadly being duds. Sugababes being the MAIN culprit of the bunch.......it PAINED me so much to FALL ASLEEP during a Sugababes album, that i couldn't even BRING myself to write a bad word about them on here. Sigh.......oh well.
