Just got the album, seems pretty good. What do people think?
Although the lyrics to Walcott confuse me no end.
"Don't you know that your life would be lost out of Cape Cod tonight?"
"Don't you want to get out of Cape Cod, out of Cape Cod tonight?"
So Walcott is insane for wanting to save his life? eh?
you just need to add the comma - "Don't you know that your life would be lost, out of cape cod tonight" They leave it up to you to add the 'get' as it mirrors the other line, and also flows and fits a lot better.
The lyric websites fuel my confusion.
average at best imo.
I got 'Walcott' and 'Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa' off a blog like 6 months ago. They are good songs but the album is crapsticks.
is classic pop, and A-Punk is pretty damn addictive (and i don't even like ska!)
But there are alot of people on here who have a strong disliking for them!
which I don't really get, not just because I like the album but because I feel it's very accessible and likeable. A lot of it seems to be directed at their upper-class preppy image.
exactly! I reckon all the haters are just closet fanatics!
...but that Jools performance was pretty good actually.
I dunno why people don't like them. Maybe their image, or because they're ridiculously poppy.
The album is just average, it's middle of the road and not too unpleasant. Oxford Comma is a good song, everything else just washes over me.
Just put it on and enjoy some classic early 80s World sounds and rythms. The music is space and light, like dust motes dancing in the window of a hazy sunday afternoon. Deft, unpretentious lyrics that don't care about what you think of the creators' social standing. They are what they are, and they're not going to make a fuss about it.
A Future Classic.
World music is shit
Vampire Weekend - the new Foals.
who lists The Verve as their top artist, I'll take that as a compliment. Case not just rested, but screwed soundly and left to sleep it off.
yes thanks for telling me off...but er...sorry they are still tepid and average. I bow down to your superior musical knowledge oh learned one. and you like sparklehorse, heh heh!
Now fetch me my slippers like a proper bitch!
i really like them!
Cant beat a bit o pop.
The album bores me thoroughly (as in so much that I can't sleep). I'm not sure quite why that is, as I should really like this kind of thing. Hmmmm.
because of class, and so that's why they think they're pretty meh. it's not necessarily just being stupid.
I was just saying that concluding that all class-based aversions to them are down to stupidity is wrong. They may just fail to make an impression on some people because they don't identify. I'm not saying it's a rule.
It is overated but to be fair lots of shit stuff is overated so this seems to me to be a good change.
I enjoy them.
just can't be fucked with as far as great songs go, really..
