The Law - A Measure of Wealth
Galling as it must be, comparisons with fellow Dundonian upstarts The View are hard to resist when taking on The Law. Both are undeniably cut from the same cloth as youthful champions of raucous, anthemic, singalong indie-rock with celebrated live prowess ably bottled by one-time Oasis producers.
But if The View’s second release furthered their reputation as impudent hellraisers and rough diamonds of this swaggering Scotch Britpop with baws, The Law’s debut presents a more consistent, polished and straightforward songsmithery that still encapsulates the high spirits of Dundee’s feral youth. The Gallaghers can consider themselves supplanted.
