Lostprophets : The Fake Sound Of Progress

Weirdly impressive...

Lostprophets  :  The Fake Sound Of Progress

A cruelly apt title, this, since these immaculately-groomed show ponies of

British nu-metal sound rather like hairy old Faith No More after a

particularly heavy night of macho turmoil and turd-polishing. What's more,

it's hard to greet the new dawn when a band choose suspiciously faithful

covers of INXS and Duran Duran songs as B-sides.

Still, 'The Fake Sound Of Progress', veterans of the NME tour may recall, is the one where all of Lostprophets' spasms, contortions and fancy futuristic

effects come in closest contact to a tune. Weirdly impressive; but after

being bludgeoned over the head with a very shiny stick to an irregular time

signature, anyone's likely to see stars.
