Like their fellow New Yorkers The Strokes, The Bravery recycle the music of their youth and add a modern sensibility (as well as a pin-up swagger). But whereas The Strokes focussed on the guitar-rock of the Velvet Underground and Television, The Bravery seem more interested in their New Wave colleagues. And so, they combine the club-friendly basslines of New Order (opening single "An Honest Mistake" could have just as easily as originated in Manchester as lower Manhattan), the synths of bands like Human League and the arch cockiness of Duran Duran. Plus, when singer Sam Endicott groans "All I want is everything / Everything that I'll ever be" at the beginning of "Give In", he seems to be channelling The Cure's Robert Smith in both sound and sentiment. As a tribute to the Me Decade, it's near perfect--slotting somewhere between the sexiness of The Strokes and the darker edge of The Faint. Even if it's not a particularly original album, The Bravery is undeniably catchy, from beginning to end. --Robert Burrow
