is The Drift the most misunderstood album of the year? I think it's one of the best things I've ever heard.
but then maybe I just don't understand.
Certainly a unique piece of music.
wonderful, but odd. One of those rare records that will stay with you for many years.
DIE THREAD, DIE
it got amazing reviews, is loved by scott fans, yet has been ignored by the majority of listeners (and people on here)
why it gets so slagged in reviews and on this board as being unlistenable. Compared to Tilt it's fairly accessible.
slagging off was probably the wrong term. I really meant to say people over emphasised how 'challenging' it was. It put me off listening to it until this week. Totally agree with you about Tilt.
for most listeners, but thats a good thing. the reviews i read were 99% positive, but it seems to not have reached that wide an audience
way back when it came out. I'd totally forgotten. I agree with myself about it.
So I have to listen to it when she's not there.
I think Clara is my favourite song. It's fucking immense.
