Anyone got it yet? Thoughts? Good / bad?
Im off to buy into town in a mo to pick that up as well as new Spiritualized.
i have high hopes..
and its sounding good so far!
Am seeing them in Brighton on Friday. They're meant to be on top form live too - a mate saw them in Exeter last night and said it was great.
Didn't really like it on first listen, the vocals are a little dissapointing. It is promising though, definitely better than other recent stuff.
I reckon it's the Mr Beast of Wedding Present LPs - a best-of album of original compositions.
Nice to see Gedge and Albini still circling each other like huskies, fangs flashing sporadically.
Look out for the pre-Indietracks feature with Dave Gedge and Darren Hayman on DiS in the next few weeks...
Throw Wayne Gooderham in there and you've got the LLP from Heaven.
although we are gonna try and get them to collaborate at Indietracks!
but aside from that a fairly solid effort. Much prefer to to Take Fountain, and the less said about Saturnalia the better.
and they were stunning live in Brighton on Friday night too. On top form!
It just sort of fizzles out... Good opening few tracks though.
