King Of Leon - Only By The Night.
On a sidenote - I saw Steve Coogan live on sunday night and it was the biggest pile of shite, a GARGANTUAN disappointment!
what characters is he doing?
agree with kings of leon
as i thought the coogan show would be good. Elaborate on its flaws please?
Admittedly I was there for Partridge and don't know the other characters as well but it was just... rubbish. A lot of singing (fine if you like that kind of stuff, I wasn't expecting that), clearly not rehearsed enough (had stuff written on his hand which he kept referring too, forgot a load of lines etc), AWFUL routines inbetween main character slots and to be honest the older characters (Paul and Pauline etc) just seem really dated now. Total disappointment!
nas album wasn't really a disappointment as it was almost guaranteed to be absolute horseshit
is loads better than I expected it to be, I didn't have very high hopes at all though to be fair.
real big letdown I thought. Just really dull and horribly average throughout
last week, was very disappointed although laughed my socks of to Duncan Thicket. the rest was fuckin lazy like he couldnt be arsed and came across as under rehearsed
they've made some fantastic records, but this one is dire unfortunately
it's a great lp! my favourite album by them so far.
Next year in Zion.. maybe being harsh after two listens but its shaping up that way
It's not bad in any way but it is definitely disappointing - completely light weight in comparison to RTCM
The fact that 'Shout Me Out' starts like a Will Young songs was the turning point for me, how did they go from sounding so original and dense to a pretty derivative light-funk act?
with that too, with all the hype i thought it was going to blow RTCM away but i'm left thinking it's not as good.
Add to that the Chris Martin vocal on Family Tree. No, wait, that's actually them?
3 good tracks that I can't even be arsed to hear anymore the rest is forgetable.
cut copy, I thought I would love it but its just really really bland.
Los Campesinos! Hold on now youngster... good for about 3 mins sometime at the begining of the year (it was this year wasn't it? yeah I think so...) now its pretty thow away and annoying. Please prove me wrong live!
Spiritualized because it could have been ace and it just sounds liek Embrace.
The Chap Mega Breakfast at first I loved it then it got massivley annoying and I cant go near it.
The Foals could have been fun but it lacks any energy and its just a bit bland.
Hercules And Love Affair two or three good tracks the rest a bag of balls.
apart from blind it's a sack of wank
what's happened to you?!
I thought I would like all those albums and they turned out a bit bland.
with everything you said there.
Except, i never got three mins enjoyment out of los campesinos and have never heard of mega breakfast chappy
I was wonderering if i was the only one who found that one rather dull.
(i disagree a lot with several others there, but hey ho)
the breeders - mountain battles
spinto band - moonwink
The Hawk is yawning
Just really overproduced and screechy compared to their previous stuff. Ditto Black Kids, for that matter.
it's 'gwai by numbers, but what did you expect when you bought it? Solid, if unsurprising. Which is what I want from a Mogwai album these days.
no, I do like it, but I was wanting intricate guitar work and layering like the Zidane album.
I didn’t know much about Son Of Dave but caught him live and thought he was great but it just didn’t come across on cd. Tapes album was just a bit boring.
A bit gutted about King of Leon going for the American market therefore making a watered down pish album.
Spiritualized wasnt too good, more of the same and no twelve minute shoegaze epics. It also meant that the live shows this year were essentially dominated by a load of middling tracks.
By no means the worst, just really disappointing.
equals Easy Tiger in the frustrating stakes. Couple o gems, lotsa shit.Go solo again Ry, please!
easily. Its just RUBBISH. Ebay beckons.
Not the 'Felt Mountain II' it was cracked up to be.
My Morning Jacket
although the Hunter's Daughter is ace
(I loved the Forward Russia release - but having no expectations to set against it kind of saved me from disappointment)
