Tipped by pretty much every record industry insider upon their appearance in 2008, Broken Records certainly have the raw materials to become one of the most celebrated British bands over the next 18 months.

A record bubbling over with passion and heart-on-the-sleeve emotion, Until the Earth Begins to Part doesn’t always quite do the songs it features full justice.

The production seems to struggle to cope with the bombast, and the band could learn occasionally that less can be more.

That said, songs such as ‘Slow Parade’ and ‘If the News Makes You Sad Don’t Watch It’ are undeniable signs that they could play huge venues in the future.
