Cardinal Jack are a London based Indie/Dance-Rock band made up of University of Hertfordshire Graduate students, Tom Williamson, Mark Kempson and Paul Eaton. Since 2008, they have played their way around some of the most famous music establishments the UK has to offer, including three appearances at the Liverpool International Overthrow Festival, The main stage at Bishop’s Stortford Music Festival, and two headline shows at the University Of Hertfordshire's academy level venue The Forum Hertfordshire and The Cavern Club...

When I originally reviewed their debut single 'Green Eyed Boy' I stated that I was looking forward to Cardinal Jack's debut album. Now it's here, the wait was definitely worth it.

There's a definite '80s sound running through this tracks, as well as a wicked sense of humour. My favourite track is the Rock fuelled track 'Don't Dance Right' which has a feel of Cheap Trick about it (when they were actually good). It's a little warped, but is a wonderful feel good track.

For those wanting something modern with a rock based, '80s vibe, then this is the album for you. We Shall Start the Dance has much to recommend it. This is well worth checking out.
