Fist pumping, arena bothering guff from Flowers and co. I know that hordes of you love them, but really, didn’t we shake off all of this bollocks when we murdered all the yuppies back in 1989? Completely emotionally devoid, lyrically banal and seemingly crafted by focus group, Runaways is 4 minutes of nothing. Really, we deserve better than this people.
NB: For what it’s worth this is the view of Mr Charlie solely and has had the office ruthlessly divided. Half agree with his points where as the other half are quietly dissing him and acusing him of having no taste in music. That same half are declaring this a triumph and spectacilar return to form for the band harking back to fan favourite album “Sam’s Town”. Overall that side of the office give it a not at all bad 8/10
