Review: Razorlight's 'Slipway Fires'
Although they're huge rockstars in the UK, Razorlight hasn't necessarily hit stardom here on American soil. But their new album, Slipway Fires (out March 10 aka tomorrow), brings back rock and roll (with their own twist, of course). "Tabloid Lover" is infectious and makes you get up and dance. Meanwhile "North London Trash" shows the band's ability to tell a story as frontman Johnny Borrell works his vocal magic. Starting their North American tour today in Boston followed by their album release show in NYC tomorrow night, these guys don't only hit you with their tunes but also put it all out there on the stage.
