that song was IMMENSE at ATP, as far as I can remember.
so far a big thumbs up from me.
:) its better than i expected and i expected a lot!
I dont know the songs well enough yet to rate the album other then say what I thought at the time.
BTW - It's really good (from first 2 listens)
WHY DOES LAST.FM HAVE TO RUIN EVERYTHING?! :'(
of this is REALLY GOOD.
some of it is a bit MEH.
Second half > first half. I'm not sure any of it is loud enough or hooky enough though. There aren't any of the melodic, shoutalong choruses which littered Inches and parts of 3/5. "The Lowest Bitter" works really well as an album closer though, and the guest vocals are an unexpected success for the most part.
I think The Equestrian is by far the best thing on it.
I think the first three tracks make an awesome opening. Possibly the best start to any Les Savy Fav album. Unfortunately, it lags badly with the next three. I'm usually all for the slower stuff from Les Savy Fav, but in the brief period from Patty Lee through to Brace Yourself, they lack both the melody and the intimacy they conveyed with the likes of Je T'Aime, Asleepers Union and One to Three.
Fortunately, it picks up after that, with Raging in the Plague Age one of the highlights of the album. It's so fucking dancy. However, it arguably speaks volumes that the song was originally recorded nearly two years ago, and has already been released on an EP.
From then on out, it's a little bit by the numbers. Good that it maintains the volume (with the exception with Comes & Goes, which is shit), but I don't think there's anything that really stands out, particularly on first few listens. That said, it's good to hear them trying something completely different with the final track (reminds me of Sufjan), even if it's not the greatest song they've ever written.
by the time it comes out, will forget to buy it and Tim Harrington will cry.
I've listened to it like 4 times! It can only get worse from here.
I just wanted to talk about Les Savy Fav again :'(
