The Wanted - 'Battleground' First Listen!
EXCLUSIVE | Find out what MTV thought of the lads' new LP here...
Following the huge success of singles The Wantedlads are back with their second album, JLSand One Direction when it comes to the battle of the boybands, but The Wanted present a fresh sounding sophomore LP - where they have even co-written some of the songs.
Stand out tracks include the Ibiza dance-floor filler Glad You Came, their next single Warzone (co-written by Max and Nathan) and Invincible, which shows their versatility to have another stab at a club anthem.
While we enjoyed the more uptempo tracks on Battleground, no boyband record would be be complete without the classic ballad (think stools, candles and er, Westlife) with our favourite being Last To Know and I'll Be Your Strength.
Overall, an impressive effort from the lads who first burst onto the scene with All Time Low, they've now firmly cemented their place in the boyband hall of fame.
