top five LSF songs ever
but even that sounds like a mclusky rip-off. The whole thing is just so far from what I expect from a Les Savy Fav album. Where are the big, shout-along choruses? Where's the poignancy of Je T'Aime or Asleepers Union? Where are the witty narratives? :(
I've never really liked it. And I'm sad that the two times I've seen them live, they've concentrated pretty much entirely on it. And I'm worried that they'll do the same next month, and indeed during every show thereafter, and I'll never get a chance to see the band I fell in love with :'(. Put a word in, Gareth.
But definitely the least good of their albums that I've heard
they're always slightly lost on me as an album band. I mean, I love listening to them, but it's like there isn't quite enough actual killer hooks they can come up with. I tend to get bored after the first half of Inches. That said, the first half of Inches is probably one of the best sequence of songs ever put to record.
I do like Let's Stay Friends, esp Scotchguard the Credit Card and Patty Lee, but it sort of washes over me after a while.
I'm not being jaded here, I do fucking love Les Savy Fav, I just find it hard to listen to them like I'd listen to another band. I like listening to four or five tracks and then changing.
Yeah, I get that, right after Yawn Yawn Yawn ends.
but then No Sleeves, Reprobates Resume, Bringing Us Down, Blackouts On Thursday and Rodeo are all awesome, so... well, you shouldn't.
ALRIGHT! - best singalong bit ever?
I don't think it sounds like Mclusky, but there's nout wrong with that if it does...
Actually this album kinda highlights how
many bands they've influenced (not that they intentionally went "we can do it better), The Equestrian is all Bronx-y. What Would Wolves Do, The Strokes.
sounds just like the opening guitar from To Hell With Good Intentions.
despite the fact THWGI is one (different) note and LSF two.
it's hardly the main part of the song anyway
and I don't want to hold it against them or the song, but it's one of those things I can't help letting bug me, especially when it's by far the best song on the album. Add to that the fact the second best song was on an EP released nearly two years earlier and the whole thing seems a bit lazy, or maybe how desperate they were to get decent material onto it.
they should have just kept up the single thing really.
it's their most "coherant" album I suppose, I don't think it's amazing, I don't think anything they've released has been perfect. Infact some great songs they've written aren't half as good on record. Inches (I know its not an album) has some mediocre tracks. But they're still one of my favourite bands ever. And I don't think it sounds much like Mclusky (the band I got into LSF through) either.
Reprobates Resume - Monkey Gone To Heaven?
Very similiar, almost exactly same drums and rhythm.
It's almost exactly the same bassline and drums as 'To Hell With Good Intentions'.
seeing as they're supposed to be all creative and ting.
Cat and the Cobra is the only album that's good all the way through.
