One Way Ticket to Hell ...and Back is the second studio album by the British rock band The Darkness. It was released on 28 November 2005 through Atlantic Records and reached platinum status in the UK. The first single from the album, "One Way Ticket", reached number 8 on the UK Singles Chart, as did the second single "Is It Just Me?" Bassist, Frankie Poullain, has said that "Hazel Eyes" is his favourite track on the record, citing, "I defy anyone after a couple of beverages to listen to "Hazel Eyes" standing up and NOT get the Michael Flatleys." Poullain was already familiar with six of the ten songs on the album, playing "Hazel Eyes", "Dinner Lady Arms", "Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time" and "English Country Garden" on tour with the band before his departure. He also co-wrote four of the tracks featured on the album. The working title for the album was The Painstaking. Most bass parts on the album are played by Dan Hawkins, following the departure of Frankie Poullain. Reviews for the album were mixed. Q magazine proclaimed it the 22nd best album of 2005. However Planet Sound remarked how it was the "world's most expensive penis joke", regarding the costly delay of the album. In an interview with The Sun, Dan said that it cost £1 million to make.
