Almost as good as 'Neutral Milk Hotel - In The Aeroplane Over The Sea'?
Still, a fun record.
But yeah... In The Aeroplane is the best album ever.
i've seen the world, kissed all the pretty girls
i've said my goodbyes and now i'm ready to die.
it is VERY near to ITAOTS. Let's argue about opinions!
a hundred times yes
on virtually every level.
that doesn't mean IAAOTS is bad in the slightest. the unicorns just pwn.
i understand how ITAOTS is viewed as fantastic. but i don't see quite why it is masturbated over so frantically.
by lots of people. And for the record i was quoting lyrics rather than ACTUALLY hating you.
i so should've picked up on that. i'm such a DICK!
is it too late to say
'i hate you too' ?
especially ones on an Island(s)! That have returned to the sea because they need a hair cut.
But really, really good nonetheless. What an odd thread.
Are you just treating Aeroplane as DiS's generally recognised indie benchmark? Because beyond that, I don't see much room for comparison.
and also my personal opinion. They're my two favourite records. Possibly, this will probably change.
But I like The Unicorns.
lots and lots of bootlegs and stuff here:
it's a great site
(its my site) ;)
that's what the thanks was for.
(glad you liked it)
The unicorns= great indie band, but dont deserve this kind of hype hype, unlike NMH, who far too often get 'dissenters' saying they dont like it for fear of a record being so amazing that it is both good and widely-loved. See also: 4/6 radiohead albums.
It doesn't have the scope of ITAOTS, perhaps, but it has way more moments that put a shit-eating grin on my face.
Death buckle up boys, we're going for a little ride.
in some kind of unlikely life or death scenario, I think my head would explode. I *know* in the aeroplane... is the better album (and the title track is possibly the greatest song ever written) but I think I enjoy the unicorns more. I pray I never have to choose.
I love comparison threads. For no real reason. I just do.
The Unicorns album is good...but at times I find myself not really being bothered by what I'm listening to. Or almost, at times, getting bored by it.
it's like they have ADHD.
but the Unicorns makes me giggle as well as dance. HARD!
unicorns are people too is better mind.
i know you meant that. i was just saying that the other unicorns album is better.
thats my fave album probably ever. ok, maybe thats hyperbole. but i heart it more than i heart most things/people.
They are massively different. Although I love both. Horses (Unicorns) for courses, yes?
I loved both these records to bits a few years ago, but can't listen to them anymore without vomitting.
have opinions on this?
-1000000 indie points (or +1000000 indie points, depending on your perspective)
The Unicorns make good, inoffensive, skew-whiff pop music and WWCOHWWG is a good record.
for you to compare them
