    Music For The People is a record that brims with weighty ambition. [April 2009]
  2. That's the problem with social realism, but the Enemy do their best to vary their sound and mode of address.
  3. Widescreen return from Jam wannabes.
  4. The Enemy¹s second is weighed down with pomp and bluster.
  5. 40
    While there are still a couple of Jam-like snarlers on album two, the aping of Oasis’ more bloated days sinks things quickly.
  6. As ponderous as Music for the People can be, it does have some forward momentum, and it’s an undeniable improvement over "We’ll Live and Die in These Towns."
  7. Clarke is a genuinely talented songwriter, if rather earnest in his intentions, but in Music for The People he and his mates seem to have lost the plot.

    Unsuccessful, unashamed and quite frankly embarrassing plagiarism of 80's/90's british bands. Do yourself a favour and check out London Calling or Different Class instead. Expand
