Sound — 9
I first heard 'Living For The Weekend' on the radio, and I knew these guys could be something. It's such a great sound to the album as they have lived the rough life in Staines In London, so I'm guessing thats probably the influence behind the album. A great indie record.

Richard Archer may not be the best singer, but certainly has that air about him that suggests he is something special. Personally, I think I can relate to the lyrics he's singing because I've never been in the rough but thats me so he's telling me what it's like. Lyrically, the best song is definitely 'Cash Machine'. Listen to the lyrics and you will see why.
Overall Impression — 10
I think Hard-Fi are a one of a king band because they can't be compared to any band I know of. The most impressive songs are 'Cash Machine', 'Living For The Weekend', 'Feltham Is Singing Out' and 'Hard To Beat'. Fantastic.
