Boomkat Product Review:
Sometimes when I listen to an album it makes me take a step back and say "what the hell was that?" sometimes for good reasons obviously but sometimes those reasons are less satisfying. The Isles are a New York based band and their debut album 'Perfumed Lands' has had that effect on me today, not because I think it's a masterpiece (it isn't) but because I can't believe that a band could go into a studio and record tracks that ape the Smiths so damned much. I mean, we all have a go at Muse and Coldplay for mimicking Radiohead, and we're all guilty of poking fun at Oasis for sounding like the Beatles every once in a while but this is really going a bit to far - 'The Isles' don't sound only a bit like the Smiths, they sound like a pub cover band who got their songs mixed up a bit, and maybe took a section of their limited repertoire from Morrissey's more misjudged solo ventures. It's not even that the album is horrible, it's perfectly good fun to listen to, but it's so unashamedly copyist that the only thing it makes me want to do is dig out 'The Queen is Dead' and listen to the real thing - I mean why go for a copy when the original is better and more satisfying? I can only think that 'The Isles' are quite unique in New York, something of a novelty and have a lot of fun taking the Manchester sound to darkest Brooklyn, but why oh why have they now sent it here?
