The Cribs release new single from third album. Proceed to confuse us, but equally manage to thrill us. So it goes...
will it be a 'hit' though? Alas...
cannot understand the fascination with this lot. This is shit, like the rest of their stuff.
as it is very accessible.. but it needs to be FASTER dammit!
I've tried to like them. Alas, they just seem a bit boring...
this is an alright song for a boring band, but it becomes contender for song of the year if you choose to mishear the lyrics as 'man sneeze, a pile of green.'
in the midweek charts...
...they're just a great pop band band. some bands should experiment, some bands should just write great pop tunes and thats what the cribs do. i dont think this is one of their very best songs, but its still a cracking song. The first two albums a both brilliant and i cant wait to hear the new one.
Its average, maybe pretty good at a push
for some glorious superband to come along and make all this boring, conformist, gutless spiky-guitars danceable-indie shite obsolete. its very lazy and its very boring. TRY HARDER, BANDS
I am with you my friend. Short life span music for a quick thrill. I am bored of indie dancefloor fillers their generic structure and spiky-guitars.
I don't believe 8/10 can be given to a song that will be forgotten in a couple of months. When the DJs stop spinning this bad boy all the indie kids up and down the country will just move on to another cheap thrill.
Boring boring pop indie. Boring
if every band went around only penning tunes like 'atlas' the dj's wouldn't have any 'cheap thrills' to play. everyone would be forced to get pissed and dance to serious self obsessed guff that's better suited for the ipod or bedroom. varieties good. if you don't like it, nobody forces you to listen to it.
it is the very top 20 chart-straddling beast that I had hoped for...
horses for courses. I think.
cheap thrills come better than this? They're just playing what should be tight slick tuneful pop in a sloppy, hazy manner. Rather need a producer to kick them up the arse and make their sound blossom. Trevor Horn comes to mind, no really.
