Again another band with few ideas trying to rip off Joy Division and The Cure. Has anyone heard it? Quite poor...
Pretty dull really.
and the first two singles were really good, haven't heard the album yet though.
this is their forthcoming album. I believe live they might good, but somehow they don't stand all the interest generated at the concerts. On the disc the music is quite generic and dull recycling of the new-wave melodies. I was expecting something more solid even though I bet they'll become the next big thing of this year due to the hype machine...
then it's disappointing indeed. they were brilliant and really tight live - the first time i saw them was about a year and a half ago - and really surprised the debut is taking so long to come out since, imo, they had some pretty good songs even back then.
...non disputandum est.
supporting Nightmare Of You last month and thought they were ok but they did have a bit of a 'this year's editors' vibe about them.
The title track is a really good song - kid of Echo & The Bunnymen gone rock.
I honestly hear quite a strong touch in the atmospheres.
I hoped it was a grower but actually after more spins the whole album didn´t get any better, actually maybe a bit worse.
...are the shortcut for the people reading the reviews. I could be writing 600 words on how they do sound and justify my ideas (but why?) but honestly not everybody has a lot of time in reading that. But as said that´s your idea, fair enough
... before letting out your feelings.
"I´m working as reviewer for an italian webzine. I did get their promo from the distribuer. Def it´s the final album, do not worry. If you are willing to read the review (and able to understand italian), here you go:
...was just ironic. No angst in there. I think reviewing (in whatever field) is sterile if there's no discussion about what you wrote. I'm happy to discuss with you about the text. No problem. And I can be completely wrong.
I didn't have any intention in hurting your feelings.
