I love this band but sometimes feel I am the only person who does.
Comfort me and tell me I am not alone.
Gang of Losers was not so good however,
I still love them though.
But something keeps stopping me from doing so. My own ineptitude, I suppose. I own No Cities Left but I've only ever listened to it a couple of times. I might slip it on this evening.
I like both albums but know where brusma (below) is coming from in labelling them a little one tone. I think that's my only real criticism of Gang of Losers. Some of its lyrics are brilliant.
I let it slide though, I honestly just don't get tired of the band and I usually do and have to have little 'hiatuses' where I don't listen to them for a while.
No Cities Left too. I know what you mean though, I really dont know of anybody that listens to them anymore..One of the better acts at Glastonbury a couple of years ago, although the hand-clapping child they bring onstage grinds my gears a little bit.
a bit one-tone. No Cities Left and Gang Of Losers are good albums (especially the former), but sometimes I just want to sigh and give up on the albums.
i suppose if i were a true DiSer, I'd tell the lead singer to MTFU for calling his kid "Neptune Lightburn", however. what. a. plonker.
but i find they descend into muso-wankery a bit too often. and the singer's face accent grates a bit.
!NOT A RACIST!
really like no cities left,especially the bit in the second part when it "ALL OF THE TIME I THOUGHT I WAS CRAZY COS YOU TOLD ME SOOOO!" etc.
from their early work is a brilliant quirky pop song. I'm a big fan of the dears, your not alone
because it was 1.99 and had nice packaging... I quite like it, not loads though.
Never get bored of playing that song. I remember hearing it live for the first time in Portsmouth bout 4 yr ago. Amazing stuff. No Cities left is one of my favourite albums, tho still need to give their 2nd a proper listen.
No Cities Left 2 if you know what I mean. They are mean as when live though, absolutley stunning vocals frommthe female members.
and seen them twice - recommend them live :)
not so great otherwise
Based on 1 song (I *think* it was "Lost In The Plot") but couldn't get into the rest. Perhaps I shall try again over Easter.
is one of my favourite albums of all time.
is horribly average. If I'm gonna listen to an average band it's gonna be Doves or something.
But I was overstating things, just taking a bit of dramatic license...erm, for the hell of it. Ha!
you're moved down to the "final warning" list
Gang of Losers isn't as good but still pretty good.
I like them a lot.
