nme said 'they're too weird and crap for anyone to care'
I don't 'get' the NME at all.
Well I do really. I just disapprove.
Simba, it is the Great Circle Of Hype.
I didn't think I could have any less respect for the NME.
It's the best pop song in ages. Bastards.
Oh, and "weird"?
This is what The Fratellis does to you.
the nme crack me up sometimes
Personally, I think this song is absolutely brilliant. It's great!
i had the 'nobody calls me in the night anymore' bit stuck in my head for about 3 hours today :D
the review says they look stupid on the press release photo, that there's 'no tune on the cd' and that even if there was no one would care anyway or ever has because they're weird and crap.
i suspect they're farming more reviews out to uni students.
The NME know how many devotees they have, and people will read that review and then not bother buying the single, or the album for that matter. That sounds a bit simplistic, but it'll happen.
I bet they give the album a 4 too. It's at leats a 9 for me.
Ridiculous... Although I've had a listen to their new album and I don't think it's as good as the first one. There don't seem to be any stand out songs, it's almost a bit boring (and I can't believe I'm saying this because their debut is one of my favourite albums of all time).
Hmmmmmm, might be a "grower"...
I can't believe I just said that.. he still writes brilliant lyrics but the whole album just sounds like one long song :(
its far better than the first, which had a few crappo songs like going missing on it. the newie is pure GOLD.
are bloody impressive
I'll have another listen RIGH NOW. I hope I change my mind.
