The last 2 minutes of Toys Toys....is aural sex. Oh yes it is. Argue with me if you dare.
is an outstanding video. But Jaggy is just better. end of. The thought of structure and the melody gone into Jaggy is immense!
OH YES IT IS
it's all awesome though. I've been having quite a Biffy-centric day.
For me, quintessential Biffy - Kids From Kibble, Bodies In Flight and Jaggy Snake. Progtastic.
I think Toys... is one of their worst, actually. Doesn't do anything for me. It's a bit bland, to be fair.
why people rate it?? It seriously annoys me, always skip it. Hah, guess it's just a taste thing
Not a patch on the rest of the 'Vertigo...' material.
The final track is the best on it.
I was comparing it to the rest of the songs on 'Vertigo' and saying it wasn't of a similarly high standard.
that i didnt remember it being on that album. its complete shit compared to Eradicate The Doubt or Questions and Answers
I thought you were disputing its existance on Vertigo. Apologies.
But yes..it is shit.
same with eradicate the doubt
When the hell did they announce a tour???
Biffy Clyro, The Bronx, theAudition and I Am Ghost
I may HAVE to go
Toys Toys... is pretty much the high point of Biffy's career. To say Jaggy Snake is better is just being wilfully weird for wilful-weirdness's sake.
No denying that.
Jaggy Snake >>>>> Toys Toys
On almost every level, too.
i just can't go mad to it in the same way. It might be musically and technically more impressive, but Toys Toys hits a nerve. Especially the end, section.
I much prefer the end section of Eradicate The Doubt by means of comparison, just because I see them as being similar-ish in sound, structure etc.
and that is a great ending, but Toys Toys just does it completely for me.
lets clear this up,
but the chorus bit("in the in the darkness of your mind you look like..") always slightly ruins it for me. it just doesnt seem to fit with the rest of the song.
anyone else agree?
It sounds like a B-side to me.
originally, wasn't it?
They recorded the entirety of Vertigo Of Bliss in one day, with the exception of.. you guessed it.. Toys Toys Toys.
I think it was recorded somewhere else a few months prior and yes, it was going to be a b-side.
