Based on rating 2/5

There's a fine line between being influenced by someone and stealing their best stuff. All too often on Brass Bound, the Ordinary Boys find themselves on the iffy side of the axis of borrowing. The band's magpie sensibility rears its head most blatantly on Life Will Be the Death of Me, a carbon copy of the Clash's I Fought the Law, and recent single Boys Will Be Boys, which sounds so like early Madness that you wonder if Suggs is in on the deal.
