On December 13, on this blog, I wrote:

"Scottish trio THE FRATELLIS play an energetic style of glam/pop/punk that evokes everyone from the BEATLES to the POGUES; BLUR to SUPERGRASS."

Even so, I wasn't too sure that their 2006 debut, COSTELLO MUSIC, would make my end-of-year list of top albums. But, as you see, it just got in under the wire.

Not the most original sound under the sun (as my original post was meant to suggest), but nonetheless competent, consistent, and -- most importantly -- quite a bit of fun.

The Fratellis on MySPACE.

[MP3] "Flathead"
