Can the debut album from London dandies The Libertines live up to the hype, with the Clash's Mick Jones at the production helm, gravelly tracks such as horror show and the boy looked at johnny rattle along like first-gen punk classics. But like the Strokes, The Libertines manage to imbue snotty garage rock with a sort of wistful romanticism that adds genuine soul to their raucous clatter. Although there's no sign of what a waster, the single that made their name, there's no shortage of excellent tunes here.
