They are also very scruffy they should take more care in their appearance and maybe it might rub off on the music they make.

I don't care for it.

It is fun but seems kind of repetitive to me.

As I read on another forum - 'I've sh*t better bands than the Fratellis'

Nuff said...

You're going to laugh, but I thought these people named themselves after the villains in the Goonies!

I first heard Henrietta when it was featured on MSN Music and, like a lot of people, I thought it was a great song but I never really thought that The Fratellis would explode. They were just another band. That single just made in into the top 20 and that was that. A good position for a relatively new band but nothing to get excited about. Then came Chelsea Dagger and The Fratellis were everywhere. I'm surprised that one didn't make it to the top of the charts.

The album lived up to my expectations and I saw them live this summer. Musically everything was perfect and I'd see them again but I won't lie and say that they were the best live band ever because they didn't really interact with the crowd and I like that kind of thing.

The Fratelli's are very very unoriginal.
There are countless bands which sound like The Fratelli's.
Probably why it gets so boring so quickly.

Default Gotta like it

Its got the Indie theme most bands do. I do found that the songs are particulary catchy and fun and deserve a place in some of todays best Indie bands.

Went through a stage of listening to them over n over but like some of the others said can get repetitive but after a while of not listening to them they can be real good and I always seam to think to myself why dont I listen to them more.

Also love the image. Some of the best Album covers I'v seen.

"Got ma nuts from a hippy in a campervan saturday night"

Love it

I like the Fratellis! But I may be biased since i'm currently biding in Glasgow...
Me and Jon Fratelli have loads in common. We both, at one point in our childhood, sold the contents of our rooms in order to purchase a guitar our parents wouldn't buy us. xD
