why all the hate?
he isn't boring and insipid and pointless like james blunt.
his songs are lovely.
that is all.
david gray is starting to sound mighty rocking
thats now what his music is about.
its to lie down on your bed and drift away with
wont you kiss me on this midnight street
sweep me off my feet
Thats what makes me dislike him. I liked Babylon but not his other stuff
that was good too!
i first discovered him channel flicking and he was playing at glasto or somewhere and i couldn't take my eyes off him.
now i've seen him in rl! with his kid
I really like the White Ladder album but the one after that was a bit dull, I thought.
And I like what he did with Say Hello Wave Goodbye.
he's fucking awful!
Excellent description, andyk79 - nice work!
but he does at least put some ideas into his music
His songs are shit
I'd much rather have a shit then listen to him.
and "his songs are lovely" is pretty much the worst argument ever. it's as wet and dull as he is.
of how these days society celebrates the safe and mediocre.
i couldn't be bothered to write an essay about what i like about him as i didn't expect anyone to read this thread.
argument people make for blunt, morrison et al.
they're all boring. they do nothing interesting and only ever aim for the odd "oh that's lovely".
and i won't let it stand.
if you have better reasons spill! if not pah!
How's that? Surely its the strongest? She finds his songs lovely, what else matters?
it's a thoroughly insipid and wet argument that just supports the arguments against gray.
if you like insipid, dad-orientated crywank merchants. I don't
Some really amazing songs on there. He went a little bit diluted after that though, and I'll never give him any of my money in the future.
