Burn Piano Burn lacks variety, and Young Machetes is a bit scatterbrained. Both excellent nonetheless.
it's true that Burn... lacks immense variety, but looking at it as an album, it works magnificently. I've yet to hear anything like it.
but i find Crimes more well rounded and coherrent.
Trash Flavoured Trash.
blows my mind.
though i love love love young maschetes
young machetes is very good though.have they definately split now???
because i am a massive gay.
johnny and + cody rock: http://www.myspace.com/jaguarloveband
Jordan and Cody rule:
is that the band with him from yeah yeah yeahs in as well?i liked what i heard if it was them.il check the others out :)
And the legend that is Justin Pearson too. Pretty much a super group.
is a super group.
sounds the same.
apart from the pre-locust ones.
gabe serbian as well!
'this adultery is ripe'?
primarily for new york slave. bpib has a massive place in my heart tho so i'd go for that as my favourite
but compared to what they evolved into, it's not really up there with the likes of the major 3 albums they recorded after 'March on Electric Children.'
FIRE!! FIRE!!! FIRE!!
My a million miles. It might be in my top 10 favourite albums of all time. The Ross Robinson production really brought out the best in them, just as it did for At the Drive In.
plus it has the best songs. and one of the best endings to an album ever.
crimes is a close second.
But they finished on a high, 'Young Machetes' is their best.
didn't cha givvit a bad review somewhere? I'm not complaining, your writing about them got me into BB.
One of my favourite albums ever, every song is amazing, and it does what I think every good album should do - makes you desperately want to be in that band.
burn piano island
this adultery is ripe
however they are all fucking brilliant. RIP. :(:(:(:(
for me, as I neglected to explore them until Young Machetes, was going to get a ticket to ULU before it passed, and then they split up...
I ADORE Young Machetes and've got Ambulance vs. Ambulance on 7", but where else should I go? Burn, Piano Island, Burn, sounds/looks good, right?
but I adore YM and BPIB.
They took everything I love about rock and threw it into their stuff; great live act, awesome lyrics, nuts instrumentation, RIFFS and just plenty of WTF moments to keep you guessing. They were very close to my heart and people who haven't should give them the time of day.
Crimes is also my fave album cover ever.
is their only consistently good album, in my opinion.
But I'd say the first three tracks on their last three albums have been fucking phenomenal.
If anyone hasn't searched for it, try and get Pink Tarantulas, that's about equal to 50% of the BPI,B material
has the right mix of shared vocals (as opposed to later albums of pure Johnny tracks) and the storytelling is amazing, the chaos of sound has never been beaten and tracklisting wise is their best. Ah, it's so much better than Crimes and YM.
Oh and Johnny's new band isn't get much love...
I would really rather have a full length Head Wound City LP though.
can't wait its going to be unbelievably amazing. better than jaguar love. and agreed about storytelling aspect to burn piano island. lyrically theres no better band.
and musically and everythingly.
I feel like someone writing on a Radiohead thread who's only heard Pablo Honey.
I really liked that record. They've done even better ones. Cool.
So I should really get 'Crimes'? Yeah?
But Crimes is
huge gold ak-47 and laser life are the 2 best songs they've ever done, and he rest of the album isn't too shabby either.
was a face melting tech assault tank whereas Crimes was its milder mannered brother who had a soft side and liked D&D.
is the jaw-dropper. Then:
March On Electric Children
This Adultery Is Ripe
they never wrote a 100% fully consistent, obvious "best album". Each of them have their patchy patches, however brief. Contained within their last three albums, however, is some of my favourite music ever written.
Which is why I can never reply to "top X albums ever" topics.
bizzarely...i only listened to blood brothers for the first time about 10 days ago! mate lent me their cd. first 2 tracks off young machetes are great!!! atonal lovelyness. hardcore yet poppy.
where is the fault in Crimes?
I just can't see it, for me it is a 10/10 album.
In order i'd put:
1. Burn, Piano Island, Burn
2. Young Machetes
3. March On Electric Children
(not heard the debut)
its amazing. but good order otherwise.
as much as I like ¨Feed Me To The Forest¨, Blood Brothers have proved that they know how to start an album better. Also, ¨The Shame¨ and ¨Giant Swan¨ are probably better closers, even though ¨everybody needs a little devastation¨ gets stuck in my head all the time.
And sometimes my attention starts to waver around Wolf Party and Celebrator. Tiny little stuff like that - for me Crimes is a solid 9. And so not perfect.
burn piano island. although listening to this adultery is ripe most atm. depends what mood you're in, each album will give you something different. which is awesome.
