oh god 'boyfriend' and 'fascination' are AMAZING. hope they get dropped in the next club i go to.
I'm quite tempted...
sad thing about pop groups - the non-singles are usually gash.
i'll listen in the coming days and report back to you.
The singles so far have been pretty amazing.
not great :(
WE LOVE THIS EXALTATION! WOAH OHH WOAH OHHHHH
is the album stand out
CANNOT STOP LISTENING TO 'FASCINATION' RIGHT NOW
I thought they were less poppy than this....
not bad for total pop though
the halifax advert.
Without sounding too 'bloke-ish', is it just me that 'would'?
I'm totally going to see them live!
owned secret garden party this year
Has such a great chorus. The only annoying bit is when she sing craysee in loove
i can imagine that morrissey listens to this song too and does a bit of a jig
fascionation is a great pop tune
get the original version of Boyfriend from the 'Alphabeat' album. It's gadzillions better than the new one. And while you're at, also get 'Into The Jungle'.
The original album, if you can call it that, has the much better recordings on it plus i got a bonus cd with live tracks and remixes on it to, sweet!
both bores and irritates me immensely. I think its the fact that they've essentially acceptably repackaged the whole boy/girl synthy pop for the charts.
so what, abba never happened?
I was referring to other lesser known acts doing a similiar thing but far better...
Its just my pov anyways.
aside Scouting For Girls.
Fascination is just about bearable and that's only because it sounds like the intro to Duck Tales until it hits the chorus. No joke - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frGLMtGsotc
in terms of their fans and how they've come out of nowhere but they're still a bit good pop etc
DiS readers would hate them. In Denmark we enjoy disliking them - expect, of course, the majority who actually like them........... I must admit there is a part of Fascination with a, well, fascinating melody
but i don't particularly enjoy fascination (although i can see its charm) and 'crazy in love' should not be used in a pop song ever again (decent chorus).
is well worth checking out.
They're a great live band so I'm glad they're doing well.
It's strange to think I saw them playing to only a dozen or so people at the likes of Islington Bar Academy and Camden Barfly less than a year ago.
The tracklisting is different (no public image cover and a couple of the other tracks are different) and the production is more straightforward (they changed boyfriend quite a bit)...its a good album, into the jungle, ocean blue, and fantastic six are cooooooooooool.
I hope tbey play 'Fascination' 12 times
Well, I think so.
No joke. It's the best pop song I've heard in about 10 years.
is quite clearly the best song on the album.
is this some massive tongue in cheek hipster irony thing? they sound like a high school musical soundtrack..
really good fun, record is hit and miss (60:40) for me.
am trying to track down this original danish version of the album but very little success.. (not the 2cd version either)
