is called "Love It When I Feel Like This"
band-bashing aside, just how awful is that title? feel like what? LIKE WHAT?
"Love It When I Feeeeeeeeeel Like This".
What do they actually sound like?
I mean clearly not especially good judging from most of what I've heard but what kind of music is it?
Pray never to hear one of their 'songs'.
Shit like Jamiraquai?
Shit like Limp Bizkit?
Shit like James Blunt?
What are they trying to sound like?
Help me out a little here...
Listen for 30 seconds.
Have eternal regrets that you wanted to know.
They were nowhere near as bad as I expected (although I was expecting the worst thing ever).
I thought it was more ignorable than annoying, not that that's really a compliment.
all those bands. Except with a inarticulate man from Birmingham shouting over the top, literally saying NOTHING.
btw: jamiroquai - pretty incredible?
for a good 2 weeks. I am feeling like a healthy human being. Before this thread, I'd forgotten they existed. Now where's me shotgun...
like The Farm, which need i tell you ain't a good thang. I may have seen them on telly the other night (they have two singers don't they?) and it was unnecessarily trite, derivative and soulless.
I thought we'd got past this second-age-of-lad-rock thing...?
..but the band name and a photo of the lead singer are enough to put me off.
I love making snap judgements.
they save time.
a less musically-accomplished U2 fronted by a less vocally-accomplished Mike Skinner or Plan B. Not good.
That's sold me. I'll check them out.
I think in cases such as this it's for the best.
i have N idea what this band sound like, i just know to shoot the first person who plays me some
Just kidding, what a load of shite.. I blame the NME for being morons
to a free ticket I saw them @ Nottm Trent uni. I thought they were OK. Not really my cup of tea but 'Either Way' is definitely a catchy song. I wasn't particularly impressed by any of their other ones though.
They may have been overhyped but they are far from the worst band ever. At least they sound a bit different from the usual indie-rock dirges and floppy-haired Kooks shite.
They will have their 5mins of success and then disappear into the abyss. No point in getting your knickers in a twist about it.
now ur gonna see the backlash from the magazine and disowning any links to them
NME reporting full of more shit then the thames people!
I guess that makes me uneducated prole chav scum or something. Arsed.
And I don't have a problem with the album title either. Frankly, it makes more sense than most Radiohead song titles. But then Radiohead are intellectuals so they can get away with any old fucking shit and you lot would lap it up. Cunts.
quite good, but treading old ground. maybe try some new material?
And, frankly, your original post was the most pointless waste of pixels in the history of DiS. And that's saying something.
And for the record, I love it when I feel like this. Got a problem with that n'all?
What's like spinning plates? WHAT'S LIKE SPINNING PLATES?
have a vodka, that'll sort you right fuckin' out like.
like, you've got all these plates spinning on sticks and you've got to make sure none of them stop spinning quick enough and drop.
its quite an obvious simile really.
Using obvious similes and that. Wish I was that clever.
Like spinning plates is a term to describe the difficult challenge of keeping both of a womans nipples erect at the same time.
Don't shoot the messenger.
in that song title's can be explained and developed within the song itself whereas (aside from with concept albums) the album title tends to stand alone as a title in its own right.
That said I don't think I've ever listened to "Like Spinning Plates" so have no idea how that fits in with this.
But it's true that "Love it when I feel like this" doesn't really say anything at all and is a pretty bland and empty statement for a first album title.
the arctic monkeys' first effort.
But better than sandi thom's.
I'm not the world's biggest Arctic Monkeys fan but I do think "Whatever People Say I am, That's What I'm Not" is a decent album title.
Certainly it makes a reasonably clear statement that actually has a clearly understandable meaning behind it, the absence of which is my main problem with the Twang's album title.
but surely great album titles are ones that make a statement, either about the band or the album, or at least conjure up some kind of image?
For example I think "Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols" is a damn good album title as a statement while "London Calling" is great too, although it's more of an image than a statement in the same way. Similarly "Different Class", "Coming Up", "Whatever People Say I Am That's What I'm Not" etc. all conjure up on image about the band, the album and the music.
I just feel that the Twang title tells you nothing really about the album or the band or anything else really, and as such doesn't really work as a first statement you put out to the world.
but 99% of album titles mean fuck all. You can go on kidding yourself that the likes of OK Computer or More Specials or A Hard Day's Night hold the key to the meaning of life itself if you want, but I can tell you they're just a bunch of words strung together.
Of course 99% of album titles mean fuck all.
I'm not kidding myself that any of the album names you mentioned hold the key to the meaning of life. I'm baffled as to why you think I would.
But the fact that most album titles are meaningless, derivative, empty and shit doesn't improve the Twang's album title at all.
why are you so bothered about this one in particular?
but someone started the thread saying this was a shit album title and I agreed so I said so.
when you started going on about the difference between song titles and album titles and how album titles should have clear meanings and shit. That was just bollocks.
in that an album title's more a standalone thing whereas a song title can be clarified within the song itself.
I'd have thought that was a simple distinction.
Plus cul-de-sacs are great. I grew up on one and it had another cul-de-sac coming off of it too.
that aren't clarified within the song. Instrumentals for a start. It's a bollocks argument. Frankly, I'm surprised you're still defending it.
im suprised you have the petty venom to get this angry on a messageboard!
go and watch telly. its much better.
Just cos I use words like bollocks doesn't mean I'm angry.
i use the words 'sit on my face' doesn't mean i love you.
"a song title CAN be clarified within the song itself"
"There's plenty of song titles that AREN'T clarified with the song"
What exactly is your point? How exactly does you pointing out something doesn't always happen counter my assertion that something can happen? What are you arguing with exactly?
I don't mean to be rude or anything but why aren't you at least reading my posts properly before attacking them?
I know that. Now stop wasting my time with your inane drivel.
(I presume the question you were answering was "name a lame comeback someone might use 'cos they don't have an answer to an argument")
I'm not sure how you think insulting me actually has any bearing on whether or not the Twang's album title's any good or not but it really doesn't. Even if I was bland (and believe me, anyone who knows me would assure you that you're way off the mark that one) it wouldn't make the Twang's album title any less bland.
I'm not saying the Twang are shit 'cos I've not listened to them enough draw a conclusion but I think it's a really bland album title. And I don't think you actually have any kind of argument to put up as to why it isn't 'cos if you did, you wouldn't have tried to swerve the with frankly pretty rubbish attempt to insult me.
That's the problem. You're just spouting bollocks.
so you're point's pretty irrelavent.
You don't have an argument. You find The Twang's album title bland. I find the title of the Specials' second album bland. It doesn't matter. It's just opinions. Get over it.
I just mentioned that I thought the title was bland. It's you who seems to be reacting strongly to this disucssion.
I agree it's all opinions and really not too important at all. But my work's particularly boring today and this is taking my mind off it a bit, which is good.
Don't worry about what I think.
(To The Glory btw)
Thom Yorke taught me well. What he doesn't know about comedy isn't worth knowing.
I didn't mean intentionally funny.
Unless you are truly an invention of Diver and co.
boring. Is that intentional?
And who the fuck are you? Mr. Charisma?
Elvis Presley and Bruce Lee all rolled into one heaving mass of charisma compared to you.
is a braggard, a dullard and a dolt.
I'm sufficiently bored by this little exchange to file you under "attention-seeking dullard" and never talk to you again.
1. a person who is not very bright [syn: stupid]
2. a person who evokes boredom [syn: bore]
Think about it: you dig your own holes better than I ever could.
We won't be hearing much more of them.
album got. i think the rest of the review said it took elastica two albums and four years of touring to sound this tired.
- it will say six.
it will not.
i will come back and lord it over you all.
yeah, you heard me, L O R D.
if i can find it.
but were like 5th in the end of year charts.
you know when you go to watch your mates band in a pub, and all the other bands that play are sort of blokes in jeans and t-shirts doing this kind of sounds like red hot chilli peppers meets Oasis with a few slow songs that sound like coldplay. they are all instantly forgettable and blend into one big pub rock mess in your mind. they all have their girlfriends down the front going mad but no-one else even notices.
Well, imagine if one of them got a record deal and NME thought they were great.
from all the other bands. Is if your mate's band aren't fucking shite on a stick.
may well be rubbish. They just don't sound like the twang ; which is to be applauded.
Do they sound like The Enemy?
Nope, sorry, i don't understand your question.
In lots of shit bands.
I'm well popular me!!!
listened for the first time. It sounds like a man with a sore throat singing over a bad Stone Roses cover band
Or is he some humourous NME-loving, Twang-loving, anything moronic-loving figment of the imagination of Mssrs Adams, Diver and Gourley put in to annoy the more pretentious DiS members?
I think we deserve to know...
Quite possibly the worst thing I've ever heard in my life.
And as for this, enjoy their sartorial wit and endless charm: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNi6Gy0OKQQ
