The new album is out today. Has anyone heard it? Please tell me he hasnt descended into Coffee Table status.
Has been in complete decline since his debut. The last LP was complete dirge. I reckon the new one will be as bad, but who knows...I'll wait until it goes dirt cheap and pick it up then.
I'm afraid he may have descended.. that's what I've read in some reviews anyway. Shame, I really love the first two albums.
First two albums - BUY BUY BUY!
3rd and 4th Albums - DAVID GRAY EAT YOUR HEART OUT
King Of Cards is just so goddamn uninspiring.
He also sounds like Sam Beeton on his new album, no bad thing as Sam's a bit lovely.
2nd album was really good
3rd was meh at best
Don't think I'll bother with this one
and so his music is going to be effected by this. he was talking about it on that late night 4 music thingy on friday.
the new stuff is more definitely more upbeat. i haven't heard the album but heard some stuff live which sounded good but not as haunting and powerful as his earlier work.
his first and second album were awe-inspiringly brilliant, i enjoyed the third but wasn't so impressed by it.
to conclude, he's not getting rubbish, he's just, he say's 'progressing'
on first listen.
Sounds like Just Like Blood to me. A bit of a return to form after the last album which was a bit balls.
Nearly every song on it irks me :(
