Billy Talent II

Billy Talent II

Punk revivalist quartet Billy Talent is back with their sophomore LP. Billy Talent II, is the Canadian band’s new musical offer since the 2003 release of their breakthrough self-titled debut. Scheduled to be released on 27th June 2006, it was leaked onto the internet 8 days earlier.

This record is a viciously catchy 47 minutes with angst-filled guitar tones and some shout-along choruses. One of the stand-out differences from their debut is the way vocalist Ben Kowalewicz has tempered his screeching lungs of steel to reveal his inner punk rock crooner. One of my favourite track "Where Is The Line?" is the most unlikely of the sounds and styles that fans were first introduced to on their first record.
