Lostprophets from Wales was formed in 1997 and has delivered some great music through the years, with the album "Start Something" from the 2001 as the best album. Now it´s time for a new CD - a CD called ´The Betrayed´. You recognize the sound of the band, although I think they have become tougher and sometimes darker than before on some of the songs. "Next Stop Atro City" and "Dstryr / Dstryr" are among the toughest they have done. But then you´ll find a completely different side also - the melodic side... Four examples of this are the U2 goes Green Day-scented "Where We Belong" which is a real killer, the single "It´s Not The End Of The World But I Can See It From Here" which is cool and has an energy-filled verse that takes you to a chorus that is pompous rock, "Dirty Little Heart" which is just radio-friendly rock and "Darkest Blue" which perhaps is the best tune on the album... Boombastic rock at it´s very best. And in all this music, you´ll also find progressive and instrumental parts that makes the album even more interesting. And this mix makes Lost Prophet unique. This album is really good and my feeling is that after a few more listens it will grow on you even more. It has done that for each listening until now. Lost Prophet is a damn cool, unique and good band. Bravo!
