Never thought I'd see the day when that happens.
Well done to them! Outsold a Beatle they did.
Rhianna got number 1....
that sacrificing their artistic integrity paid off.
Don't talk out your arse.
you need to have artistic integrity to sacrifice it.
BUT I SEE THE JOKE U MADE!!
I am a huge fan and have lost count of the times I've seen them. I was a bit worried about how the album would be but it is fantastic.
Of course a few songs are more mainstream, but the album still has enough 'integrity' for me.
"A Whole Child Ago", "9/15ths" and "Machines" are up there with with anything they have ever done. In my opinion.
"Love Has a Diameter" and "Folding Stars" are also both lovely in a different way.
Well deserved for Biffy, although it feels strange people now mentioning Biffy who I never thought would ever mention them.
It's Biffy, anything they do is gold. It's probably their worst album, but it's still better than 90% of anything out this year.
I would say, VOB > Blackened Sky > Puzzle > Infinity Land.
But all great, and not much between them at all.
and that's what matters. i heart biffy
Elliott Smith : 10/10
They deserve it and they were fucking ace at Download.
I'm not even gonna waste my time arguing with people saying shit like "that sacrificing their artistic integrity paid off." - that's just utter, utter nonsense.
Ha, that'd be hilarious....
then they'll release the qotsa one i reckon
Who's Got A Match?
Hmm, that does have a similar pace to No One Knows.
Has worked for Biffy but didn't work at all for the Cooper Temple Clause.
I honestly think this is Biffy getting a massive, massive fanbase... before they unleash a headfuck of a next album.
I hope I am right.
for the next album
but they had all these words to get out of their system first
that'll give people the excuse to moan that biffy are taking steps backwards
they should've just quit after the third album.
Announced as the next single today.
The biffy-love-in is over in this house.
