They were revered as greats even though it was just one album.
Silent Alarm was raw, in your face and incredibly successful, and deservedly so.

With A Weekend In The City, they experimented with more textured sounds, and came back with poor returns. Many slammed them and blamed it on the curse of the sophomore album. It was a surprise that their second album was on torrent sites months before the actual release.

things the press have said about them:

FACT MAGAZINE UK:
“Despite hailing from sun-kissed Sydney, these pale faced indie-kids make stripped-down sleaze-ridden angsty rock with huge danceable basslines that sound like The Kills covering Nick Cave.”

BIG STEREO:
“Australia owns the dirtiest sounds in the world… Not to create a gross exaggeration, but The Valentinos should be the next big Aussie band that you will all be loving.”

WHITE BOY DANCEFLOOR:
“This band will take over the world in no time…”

PERSONA NON-GRATA GERMANY:
“Well let’s just say that they haven’t yet failed to floor me (both live and recorded)… It’s great to see that hype has finally managed to find such deserving victims for once!
