The Fratellis are one of those bands you know, even if you don't think you do, thanks to their track "Flathead" fuelling one of the early iPod commercials from the mid 2000s. Remember the colourful clip with the silhouettes dancing? Yeah, that one! Equal parts blessing and curse, the Scottish trio never quite maintained the momentum.

Enter In Your Own Sweet Time, which ditches that almost-vaudevillian flair on past tracks like "Creepin Up the Backstairs" to go all in on big rock ballads..
