ALBUM OF THE WEEK – WHITE LIES – RITUAL

150 DAYS TO GO

White Lies were one of my bands of 2009, I saw them at Glasto and then back in Sydney soon after for a Splendour sideshow, so I was really looking forward to Ritual their second Album. Released nearly 2 years to the day after their superb debut, however that’s about all it has in common with To Lose My Life, as Ritual is a dull sounding update of my least favourite 80’s band Duran Duran.

There are a couple of good tracks, Is Love and The Power and the Glory stand out but the White Lies bandwagon has seemingly stalled at Album No 2. In a recent interview they have said they wanted to have a Kings Of Leon like career, well unfortunately they have skipped putting out 4 great Albums and gone straight to a turkey.
The only upside is that Live I feel that this material could stand up and that with their great songs from the first album they are a good bet for a good time at Glasto 2011.
