Dirty Pretty Things

This British band was originally formed by ex-Libertine (of Babyshambles Pete Doherty fame) guitarist Carl Barat. Barat is now also the lead singer of the new band and as primary song writer he also uses this as a forum to air his feelings about his former band and Doherty in particular. Listening to the album it struck me that it was the most straight forward punk album that I had heard in awhile. The music on the CD will bring you back to the 70s and 80s in England and the punk sound that came out of there. It is energetic, raw and full of naughty language. The only weakness of the album is that many of the songs sound too similar.
