bit boring. the pitchfork review is dead on.
the new album=ace
in your face
I disagree with this opinion.
its the first time i've listened to them, at all. they sound like mogwai during their boring "uh oh they've run out of ideas" phase from a few albums back, but...even more boring?
but this twinkly twinkly bit, then bit of fuzz, then twinkle makes my soul die. SO PREDICTABLE! SO 15 YEARS OLD!
actual SCIENTIFIC FACT
and i missed it. damn
I loved it on first listen, but now i'm underwhelmed.
Still, deserves a point more, in my opinion. But I'm usually a little too generous with ratings.
then get louder, but sound quite pretty, but not really push any boundaries?
i called it twinkle-twinkle-fuzz-twinkle-core for short nowadays
personally they are my second Favorite Post-Rock band.
I've LOVED everything thus far
I'm listening to it now. Dun, dun, dun, oh wait, there's a bamf now as well. Still, pretty damn accurate!
I must say I quite like it, though. But then again, I haven't listened to any postrock the last year, so maybe that comes into play.
the drums are the only thing that's pulled me in on past EITS records.
a poor man's memory = EITS at their best FACT.
not as much as how strange or the rescue, but i'm liking it
The DMST record is great!
but I love it though, especially Track 3.
I've listened to it a few times and my first emotion is disappointment. It reminds me of "The Earth Is Not..." but without memorable songwriting. Maybe it's a grower???
the rest leaves me a bit cold
If I were to make a snap judgement base on one listen I would agree with the majority view in this thread (predictable, generic etc etc). However I think judging a record on first listen is idiotic in the extreme so I'll come back to you in a couple of weeks.
Did anyone else receive a bonus remix CD with their copy or am I 'special'?
do this so much better
should I know them?
so I hope I don't agree with the majority of this thread!
P.S. Oceansize are great!
tells me it wont get any better to my ears. sometimes one listen is enough.
I mean it's idiotic for me to do that. I realise some people can do it but I've been caught out so many times thinking "I'm never going to like this" and then I do. Lots and lots. Classic example: Andrew Bird and the Mysterious Production of Eggs
was only 'joshing' as they say. what you've said has happened to me tons, but i'm convinced it wont with this. it just didnt do much for me at all i'm afraid
This sums it up;
"All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone does have about three surprises, all of which have a certain forced quality to them. When, four minutes into “What Do You Go Home To?,” the mounting bass drum doesn’t explode into a godly shower of cymbal crashes and sparkly guitar backed by a conservative amount of reverb, I don’t feel my expectations being stretched. I do not feel the queer magic of innovation. I feel absolutely nothing. After three reassuringly predictable albums, I just need them to do what I expect.
What it comes down to is that reviewing this album is like trying to think really hard about the US Postal Service. The mail arrives every day. Sometimes my magazines are a little bit ripped and come in a plastic sleeve with a rigid apology printed on it. Mostly though, mail delivery offers almost no excitement and even less surprise, and I wouldn’t want it any other way."
is better than the actual album.there is no writing on either disc-so i really thought they had reinvented themselves whilst listening to the remix album, thinking it was the real thing.
remix is quite foxy.
