Funeral for a Friend Hours

Welsh favourites Funeral For A Friend are back with another full-length release, which for better or for worse, doesn’t sound too different from their previous 2003 release. Still present are the genuine lyrics, the stylish vocal harmonies and the heavy guitar leads. There are no surprises on Hours, but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Funeral For A Friend manage to pull off the screamo thing better than a lot of bands in the genre, and they are sticking to the formula they know works. (Atlantic)
