This album should be higher on the list. Granted, there are some weaker songs like "Don't Be Shy", "Tomblands", "The Saga" and "Road to Ruin" but the rest of the album hits hard. The album has an incredibly strong opening and a very strong first half. The second half may be weaker, but it's certainly not bad.

There's some great highlights in this record but a lot of the tracks feel inconsistent. It's really clear how bad the relationship between Pete and Carl was at the time. I think it's clear Up the Bracket is a much stronger record than this one but this was a decent album by The Libertines

I like my Brit-Pop but this isn't up to the best of the 90's Brit-pop that I did listen to, in my opinion. Don't Be Shy is good, the rest is better than alright, but it's not really for me.

Good album, but it doesn't have the punch of the first one

Good album. Not better than "Up The bracket" but its very enjoyable. "Can't Stand Me Now", "Last Post On The bugle", "Music When The Lights Go Out" "What became Of The Likely Lads" and "What Katie Did" are incredible songs!!

Would be ranked higher if not for Up The Bracket. It pales in comparison to their debut, and my perception of it suffers as a result.

Not as good as the debut, but still a truly great album. I wish they had made more than the two albums.

Less consistent than UTB but still a very good album. The sound of a band disintegrating, miss them.

This is a great album from a great, although I have always said with the Libertines the sum of the two parts is greater than the whole. I much prefer the Dirty Pretty Things and Babyshambles to the stuff they did together.
