is great, a much better all round album than Employment. Really infectious. cue brainlove comments...
that is all
that 'Ruby' is one of the worst songs I have ever had the displeasure of listening to.
I only heard it for the first time today (who'da thunk releasing their debut single you'd get sent the record just before it comes out) and it's better than expected. Think it needs some repeated listens. Made me chuckle a few times too.
One song is a bit TOO swirly blur.
Try Your Best? I think it's more Champagne Supernova than This Is A Low.
i've given it two or three weeks and i'm not sure. i think employment was an immedieate collection of singles and filler, whilst this is a little more coherent yet a little tougher to crack.
it's good though, i just don't know how good.
Ruby is a truly awful song, average to the point of offensiveness. Never has a band sounded so much on autopilot.
...but that's mainly down to his lyrics. He really should put more effort into his lyrics.
if they tried their arse off with the lyrics you lot on here would just say they're trying to hard to be different. The simple easy to sing along lyrics are part of their qwerkiness (sp?).
"if they tried their arse off with the lyrics you lot on here would just say they're trying to hard to be different."
Um, no. I wouldn't.
trying to make is that you precious lot would find anyway to criticise em
You're absolutely right. None of us here actually likes music, and if they made an album that was groundbreaking, heartfelt and incredible we'd still hate them because it's actually all decided on the toss of a coin.
I can't say anything else until I have. So. Yeah.
sums up good proportion of DiS readers, that statement...
I think it's pretty good. More of a coherent body of work than Employment. Which was really just a collection of singles and loads of filler.
Everything is Average Nowadays is dreadful though
I have decided not to bother with Album until i hear something approaching a decent record. I am still in shock of how terriable this "Ruby" record is. Cliched to the point of embarassment. i'm not a violent person but this makes want to smash the lead singer head in.
but better than the last album
