Also like the Monkeys, the Subways shrewdly shy away from Vines-style megalomania or Chris Martin's brand of heavy-handed magnanimity while also remaining as stylistically vague as possible, resembling the last 15 years of rock residue rather than any one or two particular bands. Together with the Monkeys, these guys could start a movement to supersede the UK's Coldplay bloc with a legion of post-pubescent bands wielding cool record collections and above-average riffs. For now though, they're just another indie tabula rasa hoping for fans' nostalgia to fill in the blanks
The album opens up with I Want To Hear What You Have Got To Say. There couldn’t have been a better selection to kick the album off with, as it perfectly summarizes what the listener is in for. The song starts with Lunn playing an odd strumming pattern on an acoustic guitar. After the first verse, Morgan beats hard on the drums and the song turns into a pulse-pounding electric jam. The lyrics of the song aren’t exactly great, but layers are added to the song, when Cooper sings a verse to counter-point what Lunn’s male character is saying throughout the song. So, this concludes the interesting experience that is the Subways debut album Young for Eternity. It varies from manufactured pop songs (. Rock &Roll Queen) to the emotional indie epic (. Somewhere and Lines of Light) with many stops in between. Despite the lyrics lacking at time, there are some indications of potential for later releases.
Hence, the Subways, a . trio who won the Best Unsigned Band competition at the 2004 Glastonbury Festival and released their debut album, Young for Eternity, the following year when they were all still in their teens (it appeared in America early in 2006). As evidenced by their victory at Glastonbury, a large portion of the Subways' appeal was built on their live act, which according to most reports, crackles with energy.
