This peer review discussion has been closed.
I don't think the sources exist to make this article comprehensive enough to meet the FAC, but I have listed it for peer review because I still welcome any and all feedback from the community on how it could be improved. I suppose that my main area of concern is the 'Live performances' section, which seems incredibly brief, but I'm not sure what else there is to be said. I also hope that if someone unfamiliar with the subject looks over the article, they'll be able to say if there is anything that's not well-explained. Thanks very much in advance!

Don't sell yourself short before you begin. There are plenty of articles that are much shorter. I see you have {{find}} on the talk page; have you checked every section? It's amazing how much stuff can be dredged up from that! If you don't try then you'll never get there; and even if the article does not pass the first time around, you'll still get some valuable feedback that will help for a future nomination.

 Done Well, I've had a look at the links listed on the Find template, and unfortunately none of them really seem relevant to this article.
  • One thing I always recommend is to manually archive all of the URLs in the sources; that way, if a website goes down or a story is removed, you have a backup of the information. WebCite is quick and simple to use, just use the |archiveurl= and |archivedate= parameters in {[tl|cite web}} (or whichever templates are most applicable). It's a bit boring to do, but it'll save you a lot of hassle in the long run.
 Done That's an interesting idea...
 Not done I'm not so sure that I necessarily agree with that. WP:ALT says that alt text for an image "should contain the shortest possible description or identification of the image". I don't think it's relevant to describe what Chesney Hawkes or the Caerleon Campus actually look like, as that's not what the article is about, and that's not why those images were selected. I believe that those kinds of alt texts would be better placed on the articles that are actually about Chesney Hawkes and University of Wales, Newport.
  • File:I've Got Nothing music video.PNG needs to have an improved fair-use rationale. It's all very well saying that it's discussed at length in the article; you need to explain on the file page just how it is significant and/or aids the reader's comprehension. You should be okay with the only other non-free image, the cover art; that's generally accepted at FAC as being mandatory. Consider File:U2 3D layers.jpg as an example of a good fair-use rationale.
 Done I've had a go at writing a more detailed rationale for use of the screenshot in the article.
  • Same problem with File:I'veGotNothing.ogg - you need a detailed fair-use rationale on the file page itself, explaining how it is necessary. File:Passengers-Slug-musicsample.ogg is a good example of a detailed rationale. It's right on in terms of length at 17 seconds though; always a good thing!
 Done (I think)
  • Credits and personnel needs to be referenced. You can use the liner notes for that with {{cite album-notes}}.
 Done

I will try and do some more a bit later. Melicans (talk, contributions) 06:32, 14 February 2011 (UTC)
