  1. The greatest fault of Do You Like Rock Music? is that it is a statement album without a statement, only a response.

    British Sea Power are still without a 'Wake Up' or a 'Float On' but Do You Like Rock Music? is exhilarating in its ambition, full of songs that will warm the cockles at whichever National Heritage site they choose to play next.

    While the bands foundations have always been built on rock (pun intended), as this album's title suggests, BSP go balls out rock on this theirWhile the bands foundations have always been built on rock (pun intended), as this album's title suggests, BSP go balls out rock on this their third album proper. "Do You Like Rock Music" is the bands most ambitious album in terms of aiming for that "big sound" and while the songs retain the grand anthemic feel we've come to expect from the band, here the band don't have the songs to see their ambition all the way through to the end. There are some proper crackers - with the album boasting a strong opening quarter and closing quarter. The middle of the section tends to meander a bit and lose focus. "No Lucifer" is a particular standout. "Do You Like Rock Music" is a good album, a qualified success but slightly disappointing as a follow up to the majestic "Open Season". Full Review »

    After having seen BSP live here in Louisville, KY, my appreciation for the splendors of DYLRM? have gained dimension. It's not that After having seen BSP live here in Louisville, KY, my appreciation for the splendors of DYLRM? have gained dimension. It's not that these lads wield hefty lyrical ambitions with care, bringing in military history, physics, ornithology, et al--it's that they bring it in with understanding. There is something very truthful about this record that is worthy of close attention. Full Review »
