Start Something (Columbia Records)

By: Mike SOS

Lostprophets are back with a vengeance on its sophomore effort START SOMETHING. Wheeling out its uniquely grandiose brand of rock, producer Eric Valentine's sound sculpturing pushed and expanded the outfit well beyond the beleaguered audience's perceptions, balancing out what was missing from FAKESOUNDOFPROGRESS and, in turn, allows the clan to reclaim its position as best British rock band. With 12 new songs, ranging from the raging ("We Still Kill The Old Way, "Burn, Burn") to the ultra-catchy (10, 3) affirming the band's lofty position, the sextet's short career has reached yet another milestone; being able to capture its angst in a very unorthodox way. When the smoothness of Sade gives way to a sing-along chorus, songs like "Goodbye, Tonight" scream from within and show just how Lostprophets turn up the intensity without cranking the volume. This album will be the measuring stick for 2004.
