All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
Welsh sextet Lostprophets return with their sophomore effort, the ambitious Start Something. Riffing on the road map set in place by Linkin Park and Incubus, Lostprophets produce something that's ostensibly metal, but layered with electronica tweaks, production sheen, and an ever-vigilant ear for radio-friendly hooks. To that end, lead single "Last Train Home" is an unstoppable slice of post-grunge empowerment, guided by a thousand-foot chorus suggestive of the A.F.I. nugget "Girls Not Grey." Other highlights include the more aggressive "Burn, Burn," as well as the unsheathed switchblade of an opener, "We Still Kill the Old Way." Lostprophets might have over-smoothed the ...

Lostprophets might have over-smoothed the rough patches of their debut with this mainstream-ready second effort. But that same studio gloss means Start Something should appeal mightily to fans more into nu-metal for fast and furious pop and gadgetry think Linkin Park's Meteora than the guttural groans and anger management seminars of the bald singer contingent.

    Perfect

    When Lostprophets' first album, The Fake Sound of Progress, came out I thought it was the best cd ever made. The top of that list changed when Start Something came out on 2004. From "Burn Burn," to "Start Something," and "Last Summer," this album has enough great tracks to attract any fan of rock music. There's no other word for it. It's perfect.

    A Big Yes

    Oh, yeah. This is a good one. You start listening to the beat, the music, and think its good and then the lyrics and the vocals bring a new level. It's just one of those delightful surprises. My favorite is Goodbye Tonight.

    AWESOME!!!!!

    I heard of Lostprophets from my friend; she said they were a really good band so I bought their CD. And let me tell you: These guys rock! The music is loud and pounding with a lil' of a punk sound to it. The singing is sung nicely, yet then growled and yelled. So, if you like Lostprophets already, like rock music, or have an open-mind to music in general, then check out the samples and if you like what you hear then I RECOMMEND YOU BUY THE CD!!!!! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!! (I sure wasn't.)

    This is anything but a disappointment

    There isn't one bad song on this album. Yeah, you can say that about a lot of albums, but still. Start Something may be more mainstream and oversmoothed than the Fake Sound of Progress, but it shows a lot of promise. "Last Train Home" will become a rock classic, and other great songs like "Make a Move" "Burn, Burn" "A Million Miles" and "Last Summer" make it a great album to listen to all the way through. My guess is that their next album will be their best yet.

    WHAT HAPPENED!?!?

    This album was the biggest disappointment ever. The fake sound of progress is one of my favorite albums and I couldn't wait for their next one to come out. I had heard last train home which is pretty good and burn burn which is annoying and i wasnt too impressed but i knew that they were a great and very talented band. Well, they WERE a great and talented band. This album has none of the musical talent that they used to have. The 2 guitars where one played awesome leads and the other played cool rythm is virtually gone on this album. The crazy drums and kickin bass is gone. It seems like they tried too hard to go mainstream and make some money. This album has no passion and is bland and boring with the exception of two or three songs that are decent.
