Story One Disposable EP

Story One consists of Tom Evans, Barny Barratt, Gerald Youna, and Mike Woolf. Hailing from Nottingham, they formed in 2000, they are described on their website as a, "powerhouse of a band for the post-Coldplay world", and interestingly feature a violin as a main instrument.

First track "Disposable" introduces Story One in completely the wrong way. The acoustic strum and Evans' coarse vocals don't make for good listening; it's like The Corrs – but worse. "Coming Up" has a dark edge, restraining itself before exploding into a dynamic rock sound that much more suits the voice of the singer. Unfortunately "Delhi Funeral" again slows the pace down, and despite an epic attempt to be rousing, ends up being a very boring four minutes wasted.

I think this review is completely unfair - obviously Alex has very poor taste. I happened to see Story One supporting my mate's band once and have absolutely loved them since then. Have seen them play on numerous occassions around the country and have never been disappointed. I think they are great and all you need to do is go check them out yourselves to see what I mean.

I SO disagree. You should see Story One live....they have so much energy and the violinist really rocks. They're closer to Radiohead or Jeff Buckley ...NEVER the corrs.
