About this album

Take to the Skies is the début studio album by Enter Shikari. On March 25, 2007, it reached #4 in the Official UK Album Chart selling 28,000 copies in its first week. It has been released as a standard CD, a limited CD + DVD edition and a double LP version (2 x 180grm 12” vinyl) with an embossed gate fold sleeve.
The 12” vinyl edition was limited to 1000 copies and also contained the standard CD. The Album reached worldwide sales of 250,000 copies and was certified Gold in the UK, after selling over 100,000 copies. The album produced two singles for “Anything Can Happen in the Next Half Hour” and “Jonny Sniper”.

The album contains many songs that were featured on demos, singles and EPs released in the years prior to their debut. “Sorry You’re Not A Winner” was first on the band’s second EP Sorry You’re Not A Winner EP in 2003. It was later re-recorded in 2006 along with “OK, Time For Plan B” (which was a previously released demo in 2005) for the band’s second single Sorry You’re Not a Winner/OK Time for Plan B. “Jonny Sniper” and “Anything Can Happen In The Next Half Hour…” were both on the band’s third EP Anything Can Happen in the Next Half Hour (EP) in 2004; they were completely re-recorded for the album. A demo version of “Mothership” was previously released for the band’s first single in 2006. Also “Enter Shikari”, “Labyrinth”, and “Return To Energiser” were released as demos from 2005-06. After the release of the album in Europe, the band spent a long period of time finding a distributor, which they would need to release the album in North America. Finally they signed to Tiny Evil Records and the album was released on October 30.

    Personally, this is my favorite album I've ever brought. I love every song on this. I don't mind their new direction but for me, none of their latest stuff compares to this.

    "I'm not usually a fan of post-hardcore but this album is absolutely magnificent. The band takes a while to get into (at least for me) but once you get into it it's almost as good as can be. By far their best album, it's quite a shame that they got so political in their later works. This album seems just like a group of friends doing what they think is fun." [2] I agree.

    I don't really like Rou's vocals on this, but it's still a great record.

    I agree with the guy below me. I really like this album, but just every album after this they've been going more towards dubstep and making their political messages stand out more prominently. Nothing wrong with that I guess, but I do like their ventures into trancecore a hell of a lot better.

    I love this album :) Common dreads might be better lyrical-wise but... I just don't really like almost any of the songs in it...
