Review

The British Isles has delivered several strong acts over the past decade and is thinking of bands like Keane, Snow Patrol, The Script and of course Coldplay. From Kilmarnock, Scotland comes this quartet Fatherson that presumably is influenced by at least one pair of these rock giants. Because we get big sounding Alternative rock made for the big arenas with beautiful melodies and charming choruses, all in a very well produced package. Although it sounds pompous and "luxury" there is also room for thoughtfulness and sadness which gives this second album a good balance.
The band delivers primary two types of tracks on Open Book. "Just Past the Point of Breaking", "Forest" and "Little Lost Boys," takes the band to the big arenas and really lifts the audience to higher ground. But they also have more scaled-down side like the charming "Wondrous Heart" and "Sleeping Over" in which Ross Leighton and his men show what talented songwriters they are.
So if you like the bands Fatherson is reminiscent of, Open Book is a given record to check up as it of really high class from start to finish.
