I can tell it's not that great as rock music, so is it great d'n'b that's wowing the crowds?
whatever it is that makes people love them so much too.
People went crazy at reading..and i just stood there, taking it all in, but completley not understanding.
and cheesy as Hell.
entry level d n b, but still, i was at reading and had a great time to them. mind you anything would have been good at that stage.
some clever samples and good honest fun to rave to in an indie club, made a break from the norm guitar bands. But the new album is sooooo psuedo drum n emo that it hurts
it's so bad, it's kind of cool to like them?
Don't really know what that means...
because mixmag (of all people, it was the 25th anniversary and had a really cool CD with it) recommended them. I like metal, i like dance music but they're equally shit at both. I reckon you have to be 15 to appreciate them
"entry level drum & bass". I tend to agree with that.
As someone who's listened to some decent drum & bass in the past I really hated their sound. But its cheesy & "phat" enough for those with lesser experience.
I did not like the first album so I really do not want to hear the second.
Prodigy are far better.
as mentioned above few alright-ish tracks on their debut ('Another Planet', 'Girl In The Fire', Plastic World'), the odd decent remix.
Drum and Bass for people who don't know what Drum and Bass is and also for people who got 'into music' about year ago. Utter Fucking Tripe.
I have a soft spot for the track Slam though but thats more to do with being out with fun people than anything else.
along with the rest of that ugly American music.
or have i missed the point?
are they not australian? but yes, i agree in general - they are so popular and yet so obviously atrocious that it's hard to even politely ignore them.
still, on such shaky foundations are often brilliant musical tastes built - the clever pendulum fans will use them merely as a stepping stone; I was once an ocean colour scene fan, now I'm an Efterklang fan.
