3 out of 5

Lostprophets is a hard working band and truly do deserve their fame and 3,5 million sold albums, they are struggling to become as big as Biffy Clyro and Muse and sure do deliver anthemic rock songs throughout every album they put out. This Welsh band has worked with some of the best producers around like Eric Valentine on "Start something" from 2004, Bob Rock on "Liberation transmission" from 2006 and Stuart Richardson on "The Betrayed" from 2010. This time ain´t no different where they hooked up with Super Ken Andrews (Failure), the new album "Weapons" reached #1 on the UK rock charts where the single "We bring an arsenal" was written already back in 2007 but not recorded and released until now. This song along with "Jesus walks" and "A little reminder that I´ll never forget" are the best tracks on "Weapons", I think it´s a solid album and fans of Lostprophets will ofcourse be pleased but it doesn´t reach the same heights as "Start something" which is their greatest album.
