I liked their first album and their second one is a grower.
I had to say it.
Now kill me...
Haven't heard much else.
Beats Coldplay at their own game, the songs work amazingly well in their own sweeping, glacial, widescreen way.
Unfortunately they fucked things up with the second album. They tried to rock out, to give things a faster pace and it just ended up sounding really contrived and empty. The title track and Follow Me are top-notch but otherwise it's not a patch on the debut.
But it's far better than I first thought it was !
Did it get really bad reviews or something?
I think it was released with very few press... Won't be surprised if they're dropped before the end of the year.
I found it weak at first listen. But it's becoming better after each listen...
I can easily see them being dropped. Maybe if Contact were a better album I would care more.
a few more chances...
i really liked the first one too (the second song is fantastic). the second one hasn't grown on me at all. but yes, guilty pleasure....
or fishplums will come...
thru the glass rips off the incidental music in the truman show. took me fucking ages to figure that out, it was bugging me for days when i first heard that song.
good song tho!
so get us out of this get us out of,
saw em at TITP in the XFM tent in 04 i believe, pretty good,
saw em at HMV Birmingham they did an acoustic set, they were pretty good
but a whole gig at Academy 2 - couldnt hold it, hope the new stuffs good havent heard any, think bored of them like i got with Haven
than Haven :!
they had a good song too didnt they... to the end or something.
and because of that I saw them at the joiners. they were terrible. duller than dishwater. i'm amazed anyone cares. i'm even more amazed they are playing the joiners soon at £11 a ticket. £11!!!!!
