    One of the worst albums i have ever heard. If they stop they're pepetual whining about the British class system and stick to writing songs worthy of being in the charts then maybe, just maybe people will start to respect them. Can they do a guerilla on mars, because that's where they should be sent to.

    dominic masters is one of the most annoying and pretentious singers in modern music. the band are liked and thought of in high esteem due to the image, and the fact the NME likes them. The music they produce is at very best average, and for the majority of the time it does nothing to inspire one. And they won an award named after John Peel?? there is something wrong there, guerilla dominic masters is one of the most annoying and pretentious singers in modern music. the band are liked and thought of in high esteem due to the image, and the fact the NME likes them.

    Complete rubbish. Using class as a selling point is really insulting. WRITE SOME DECENT TUNES!

    Are the peasants still going on about class struggle? Sorry, the class war was won by us "toffs" when Britpop died. Get used to it. And us being middle class, we like music with sustinence. The Others don't provide it, with their basic rhythms, two-chord songs, tuneless melodies, boring song structure. Alas, they're not very good, as is surmised above.

  1. "The Others" is no masterpiece, but it offers up a warm, beating heart where its rivals offer cold, cynical eyes.
  2. Like Oasis' first album, it's definitely going to bring people together, and it will certainly start mass sing-alongs, but something tells me The Others won't be making it to a stadium near you anytime soon.
  3. An eclectic ragbag of influences coerced into great exciting guitar pop.
