But apart from that, and a few tracks on VOB, the rest is fucking terrible. The new should have never been pressed.
Particularly here in Scotland, like, do people hype them up purely 'cause they're Scottish? I think so.
They're a rubbish band who make rubbish music with a rubbish front man who sings in the most ridiculous American accent.
on the early stuff. I really think the tracks on Blackened Sky are great.
and, like it or not, influential. I get sort of sick of seeing rock bands live; there is always the token 'Biffy' band supporting.
Blackened Sky is okay; awful simple rock-pop with painfully teenage lyrics/singing. Puzzle was a mis-step, with moments. Frankly I can't see them going back to artistic credibility - which is a shame having seen all the interviews with them over the years. 14th Floor have pushed them in ways so opposite to what they are, that it's clear to see what they want from BC.
Some Snow Patrol derivative who have one commercially viable album.
is for the fans.
Puzzle is one of the best albums of 2007. Pissed all over albums from Smashing Pumpkins, QOTSA, Foo Fighters & Serj Tankian.
You're a dong if you don't think tunes like Living is a Problem and Machines are great.
QOTSA = Disagree
Foo Fighters = Not a real band anymore
Serj = LOL
Poor comparisons, I see where you're coming from but comparing an apparently just starting out British band with stadium rock 'has beens' is unhelpful.
"Well, fuck off, would you rather listen to Phil Collins?!" it's besides the point.
but given the massive (in their terms) gap between Infinity and Puzzle, plus the budget...I dunno, I wanted their Relationship of Command, frankly.
Certainly their next album will make or break them. I can't see how being on 14th floor will work for them though. Like I mentioned earlier, the label pushes the unremarkable about them. Even IF they write 12 belters, they'll be so piss-weakedly produced that it'll be pointless.
A shame cause they looked important once.
I'm not so sure you could solely blame 14th Floor for how the record turned out, to be fair...
I for one can't see them returning to the 'glory days' of VoB, regardless of the label/budget/whatever.
but I think we'll side on the "next album will make or break" debate?
Or in the ' return to quality/importance' context?
But I really like 'The pretender'.
Not sure why. I think it's the bluesy rock break down. Damm my love for zztop.
What's with the LOL? I know his album isn't very good but SOAD have made some of the best albums of the past 10 years.
They really haven't.
