has just arrived in the post. The artwork is ridiculously sexual. I AM SOOOOOO EXCITED!
..but there's two songs on it which are only 'ok'. Overall well good though!!
so far has been fantastic. I'm a sucker for this kind of thing though. Got the Japanese version so looking forward to checking out the Aurora Borealis bonus disc too.
didn't see this thread.
I'm not very keen. That 'sound' is as lovely as ever - I'd probably listen to a rendition of Cotton Eye Joe played through that setup - but I'm having trouble connecting with any of the songwriting whatsoever. I loved the Silver EP, perhaps because that didn't feel quite so much like a dirge-fest as the album does.
Where did you buy it from?
records. So not only do I get lush artwork and 40 minutes of extra music, but I also get it two weeks earlier than the Euro release date.
Ie the really upbeat song?
He's never going to play that live :(
but I think it's an example of a track that would have worked slowed down, too. Wolves, for example, is great too. Hmm. This kind of music, for me, is all about big, satisfying chords crunching into each other; and when those progressions are a bit boring, I find myself losing interest in the whole thing.
I dunno. Perhaps I'm judging it with a Shoegazer's ear, when he's going for something more experimental overall.
