Is it out yet? More importantly is it any good?
very good, Animal in care, Beehive, Language city are amazing, really grown on me, looking forward to actual release, end of month i think & a tour would be nice!
it's ok. But only ok.
not even close to as good as their first
maybe its a grower but hell its taking its time.
I am disapointed by it and I love the first one ever so much.
I hope I'm wrong and I grow to love it.
The first album was great. Sunset Rubdown are great (including the new stuff they played last mont). Handsome Furs are great. All the other Wolf Parade side projects are pretty great. At Mount Zoomer is a bit rubbish though. I was expecting it to continue their long lineage of awesome music :(
Haven't heard it but I really like Call it a Ritual.
but it is really really good
Krug sings the same melodies and some of the same lines as in another song he did with Subtle - Middleclass Haunt, suppose it may have already been a Wolf Parade song first...
but thats boeckner you are talking about there.
I like the album but its not as good as the first.
dunno why i said Krug
on June 16th, not too sure.
California Dream is awesome tune :D
I wont say its rubbish just yet.... It always takes me a while with Wolf Parade to love them. Its pretty avrage compared to the ace last one though so far for me. I have played it quite a bit too.
but my first impression was that it was pretty average. Not bad or good. I have only listened to it the once though.
and it is acctualy ace that would be well cool.
The broken social scene presents Brendan Canning was a un-mastered version so this might be to its been around for ages....
I'm looking forward to the CD coming out esspecialy if its even better sounding I liked it lots anyway.
but yeah, compared to Apologies, this one's pretty average
but their other stuff is better.
I though Appologies To The Queen Marry has more catchy tunes on it that where quicker to get in your brain.
If it was metacritic it would probably be 67%
For what its worth i still only have lukewarm feelings for both Handsome Furs and Sunset Rubdown.
But the first Wolf Parade album is mind-bogglingly brilliant, probably one of the albms of the 00s.
The set the bar high, only to fall well short with this record. I agree with Glen_Chap above, I ain't been so disappointed by a record in a while time. Not since the second Art Brut album probably.
the reception this album is getting on here. It is totally brilliant.
Still, nothing on Random Spirit Lover though.
but I was a bit underwhelmed on that listen, but I'll still be buying it when it comes out. Fingers crossed it's a grower.
