Album Review: Enjoy the View by We Were Promised Jetpacks
Excellent, Based on 2 Critics
Under The Radar - 80 Based on rating 8/10
Glasgow indie rockers We Were Promised Jetpacks have been honing their craft since the release of their debut album in 2009. Four albums later this sound has evolved from the raw and nervy, yet captivating, early beginnings into a duality of glimmering and catchy guitar leads atop a cavernous and brooding wall of sound. A decidedly winning combination.
The fifth album from We Were Promised Jetpacks throws out a bit of a curveball at the start. Best known for being part of the mighty Scottish rock triptych, along with Frightened Rabbit and The Twilight Sad that emerged in the middle of the last decade, they’ve built their reputation on driving, intense rock. Which makes opening track Not Me Anymore so disarming.
