yay or nay.
I've really ignored them. But I am now beginning to suspect I might like them.
stupid and shallow
decent days and nights. the rest is all meh.
the 2 songs I have are hounds of love and decent days...
they are good.
I hope I have been of help.
I listened to their first album a lot when it came out- pretty good. They've been poorly managed though...poor second album, plus their biggest hit being a cover is not a good thing, as far as posterity goes. They've done too much touring as well
The Area EP so was really dissapointed with the second album when it came out. It's slowly but surely growing on me though.
yeah- I think they are a good band, and that some of their own songs are easily as good as HOF...
I just don't understand why some bands get pushed into a neverending tour, often in places you don't need a crystal ball to tell they aren't gonna 'break'.
The Futureheads could tour America for a hundred years, and not sell enough records to make it worthwhile, cos septics wouldn't be able to understand their accents...in my opinion- and in the meantime, they've sorta slipped off the radar over here.
I really liked the first 2 EP's they did,
The first album is alright but I haven't listened to the second one.
I think this could be down more to my developing music taste then them getting worse on each reelase.
As for the 2 albums, good fun but nothing special.
second album = probably better than I give it credit it for, never really choose to listen to it.
second was is more of grower, poppier. Few cracking tracks though, 'Cope' especially.
but LOVE the second album
I prefer the second album to the first.
Cope, Back to the Sea and Worry About it Later are ACE
i saw them in december and they were realy good. Thier label destroyed them a bit.
