GENIUS! Feb. 21 2006
By M. Callazzo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Their past CD's are abrasive, yet not catchy. This one is still on the edgy side, but very tuneful and melodic. The songs are brilliant. All the songs are varied, but all are strong. I like 'There is no ending' and 'Speed Date' and 'Dream sequence.' It's their best CD and the best CD of 2006!

Cuts through July 8 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I tend to judge bands by the vocalist's delivery. In this case it's a five star affair. Arab Strap bring a world weary, cold, clear, get down to it feel to songs that would be dirges if not for their skipping pace. It's certainly an acquired taste, but one worth the price of acquisition.

"Stink" is possibly the greatest song.

Confessional Masterpiece Aug. 17 2006
By Carrie McGath - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have been an Arab Strap fan for years, but this is their pure and true masterpiece in my opinion. The cohesieness of the album is captivating and the songs themselves are completely realized and poetic. This is an artistic undertaking of emotions that have been dwelling in a dark corner for a long time.

A lot of the songs are very catchy too ... like "Speed-Date," all are melodic and fascinating in their nudity.

Bets of 2006: the darkness sees the light... April 24 2006
By Manny Hernandez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There is always a first time for everything in life. Getting to know Arab Straps is no exception to this. And was it a good time! Arab Straps' "Last Romance" arrived in a moment when the music scene seemed to have slowed down compared to the abundance of amazing works that had been released by the same time the previous year, making this one of the best albums to have come out so far in 2006.

The lyrics in this release by the Scottish duo are not as rough as in their previous productions, probably due to the fact that their lyricist is "happier with life" and going through a promising relationship that keeps him a bit more positive than in previous records. Their sound at times makes me think of Travis, but a little less bright, with hints of the darkness of Bauhaus' Peter Murphy and the guitar work one would expect from the likes of R.E.M.

The album as a whole is a jewel, an impeccable production that you will find yourself listening to repeatedly. Even though it has a bit of an eighties edge to it, it doesn't get old and I can see it aging fairly well.
