should i be excited?
yes. It's very good.
in the most sedated way you can manage.
if not then you're in for a treat.
I personally don't get why this is widely regarded as their best album. i think it's more to do with how succesful it was when it came out. It's probably most people's 'first' low album.
my first low album was 'curtain hits the cast' and my favourite low album is 'secret name'.
that said they have never made a bad album so anything you get by them is going to be a treat.
'Things we lost' is a perfectly good 'classic' low album. the last two have been quite significant steps away from their old sound. even if they've retained the feel and basic slowness/sadness.
I look forward to feeling all soothed and lovely :)
secret name is my favourite too. My first low album was weridly Songs for a Dead Pilot. Then I picked up Secret Name and was hooked.
I love the second half of Things...
Ultimately my favourite Low songs are Venus and Violence.
My first ( and favourite ( and my second favourite album ever ) ) is 'I could live in hope.
'things we lost' might be only my 5th or 6th favourite Low album...
