Sorry if it's already been posted.
I need to hear this! Shit. I'm so setting up my broadband this evening. PURELY FOR THIS.
i HEART the organ though. And it's not SHIT, thank god.
It somehow sounds much more pop than before, I think
certainly nothing to make me sit up and take much notice, anyway.
Really gorgeous, just enough of new and old.
If you're going to do the old Arcade Fire backlash well *shrug*
i'm not concerned with any of that bollocks.
and now Zane Lowe feels sorry for me!
extremely glad it's not shit. it even sounds like a grower...
Love love love it.
Argh. thank god it's good.
:D:D I actually am almost CRYING with relief.
sounds a fair bit better than the general midi church organ. Not sure about the rest. Then again I'm for some reason not really that big a fan of Funeral. Or funerals.
some of it sounds a bit contrived...somehow different from funeral...more anthemic...is this the first single? i think itd be more constructive to listen to the album as a whole...blaaa blaaa blaaaaaaaaa...
though it's been around for a while in radio station versions. Did they not also play it at the ULU show last year? This version sounds great though. I wonder if they'll play the big church organ at St John Smith Square? I hope so...
I can barely remember it. Bad me.
But I'm shaking my head and tutting at you.
it was my last day as a teenager and I had been drinking since morning. The Kings College gig the week before is probably one of the best gigs I've ever been too though.
after one listen. I think that's a good sign. Funereal is one of my favourite albums, and I was a bit pessimistic as to whether they could follow it up with something exciting, and they seem to have done just that.
Have they announced when abouts the album will be out?
is making me gag.
some freeware to cut off the last 10 smug kiwi cunt seconds
very 90's indie sounding in this... if I knew anything about 90's indie I could make some comparisons...
It's not bad, the organ is a little overbearing at first, it also smacks of being more anthemic then anything on Funeral.
Perhaps going for a 'bigger' sound on the second album.
One of my all-time favourite songs.
I think I'll stick it into WaveLab to remove Zane Lowes voice from the end.
...I'm not keen on the plinky plinky bits, but it is still a damn fine song. I'm more hopeful about the new album than I was previously!
It sounded like christian rock.
Like it. Wonder how long before it's the most listened to track on last.fm?
"working for the church whilst your life falls apart, singing hallelujah with fear in your heart"
A radio session of something. I think I preferred that version. There's something deeply unlikeable about the drums on this, and the combination of the organ at the start and the choir at the end is really off-putting.
It's only my first listen though.
christmas-tastic. Dont think i like this much. We'll see with a few more listens
maybe if it was a christmas single i'd probably be quite happy.
i think it's kind of 80s sounding. 'FEEED THE WORLLLLD'
it does just sound a bit Christmas Novelty-like
i still think it's quite ace though.
everyone seems to have a bit of a built in animosity too it though...it's almost like you all set out not wanting to like it...
that's what it is. We all love it really, we're just saying we don't to gain those extra crucial indie points we lost by having that discussion about how ace Placebo's first album is.
and it's not exactly an unreasonable thing to think.
i was sort of expecting not to like it because I didn't think they'd manage to match up to what they'd done before....
Pretty damn brilliant.
It's absolutely amazing.
I can tell.
But that's probably because all my favourite songs from Funeral got hugely overplayed, and I got a little sick of them.
This is everything a "comeback single" should be. And more.
I'll keep you updated if this opinion changes.
i can see myslef loving it before too long. i am a simple man, of simple and strong passions.
and it is stuck in my head and resonating through my being like a really good wank
or just want to see it...
i hate zane lowe's little soundbite at the end grrrrrrr
song = pretty good on 1st listen.
it's ok - would make a nice b-side.
but can't decide if I prefer the non church organ version that's been knocking around for a while. dunno, think the church organ might just edge it actually. it sounds huge.
but i've only listened to that youtube thang.
the studio release is more how to put it?complete if that makes sense...
I like both versions though
It sounds like a Christmas song, they've missed a trick releasing the new material next year...
Aw it's lovely isn't it? I can't believe I used to dislike this this band.
Not far from the truth
:)Can't wait til 2nd Feb:D:D:D
I can't wait for the album.
and didn't like it very much. i think it may grow on me though.
but it seems to have gone
Warning: May contain Zane Lowe
