    The person who rated this 0 is probably just a bitter Justin Bieber fan who is just jealous that this debuted higher in the album chart. The Betrayed is a combination of all of Lostprophets' previous album.Perhaps not worth the 4 year wait, but a great album nonetheless.

    An all killer, no filler tour-de-force of everything the Lostprophets can do and more. Almost impossible to listen to without going from start to finish, every time.

    Another great album from the Lostprophets. The Betrayed shows the different musical styles of the band in one album. The first half is perfect but a couple of songs in the second half seem 'filler'. Nevertheless, The Betrayed is definitely a brilliant album 9/10.

    A gritty powerful album from Lostprophets. With the heavy edge of Thefakesoundofpropgress combined with the ambition of Start Something and the poppy sing-along side of Liberation Transmission. After 1 listen you have the "meh" effect, but after 3 or 4 listens, you will find yourself continually coming back for more.

    The Betrayed has a much darker sound than their 2006 effort Liberation Transmission. A lot of people where expecting a another Liberation Transmission with catchy more pop based songs, instead they got more intense and heavier songs, for example Dstryr / Dstryr and Next Stop Atro City. This in my opinion made this album a great follow up to such a big album.

  1. The Betrayed is not an underachieving record. It sweats hunger and ambition, and while it’s not flawless, it’s a success on their own, aggressively populist terms.
  2. Remarkably the chuck it all in and see what happens approach works, mainly because the superb sheen of production papers over any cracks. What we are left with is an inescapably solid album.
  3. The Betrayed plays to their strengths in that it sounds more like the work of blue-quiffed CGI-animated ninja warriors than real people with wrinkles.
