reads like more than a 6.1
since a lot of people only look at the number and this album is really really really really fantastic. totally surprised me quite how good it was, tracks like flamethrowers are really stunning and make foxes (which i've always really liked) look amateurish in comparison. the moment towards the end where the build up that you'd expect to transform into a cliched, upbeat/euphoric post rock ending takes an unexpected chord change and becomes really tense and dramatic is one of my favourite musical moments this year.
...harsh, harsh editorial stance.
they're clearly in no mood to start going on about another band of that (very loose) type, much less a British one, so that really does read "there's a band called Cats In Paris who have an album out. It's a bit like this. Can I go home now?" That's the only reason for thinking they're in any way bracketable with Late Of The sodding Pier.
