Why is this worthy of my time and money?: In amongst all the rubbish said about this band in the aftermath of the really-not-that-bad News and Tributes LP a few years back, people seemed to forget that The Futureheads never, ever stopped being pretty damn fantastic live. Now they return, resurgent, with one of their strongest singles to date (A List at Radio One, it is) and the promise of an album that will return them to the status they previously held in the nation's hearts - that of one of the finest guitar bands Britain has produced in decades. Live, that's where they've always been. Remind yourself of that fact, won't you.
