Album Review:
Art Brut - Brilliant! Tragic!

On Art Brut's newest creation 'Brilliant! Tragic!', the band and their vocalist are finally bridging the gap between what had previously been a strong stylistic asset for them.    This was emblematic on their prior album 'It's a Bit Complicated' on the track I Will Survive where it sounds as though the band was playing with the calibre of Panic at the Disco! or Taking Back Sunday, but the smart-ass recording engineer replaced the pretty-boy vocals with his own British sing-talk late one night in the studio, presenting it to the producer as a much better version.    However, on Brilliant! Tragic! the band and vocalist seem to be finding a middle ground to better match their strengths, but the band had more zing with less effort on their previous outings.
