I like the single 5 Years Time.
Is the album any good?
buy it NOW!
Get the Johnny Flynn record instead, if you want that kind of thing.
it not as good as the noah.... album though. it's not bad, but the noah one is waaay better
I think the Noah and the Whale album is just really dull and insipid. Didn't like it at all. The main single's good, but it's a festival hit and nothing more.
A Larum is good, a better version of Noah, not excellent but a lovely little record to get wrapped up in for a fortnight or so. Flynn's definitely a better song-writing, and there's a proper organic folky warmth to the record that Noah &c. just don't give me.
Jay Jay Pistolet is writing some really nice folky throwbacks at the moment as well.
i love them both but noah seems like a more all round record, johnny flynn's one goes a bit *too* folky at times. elfrim should still get them both though...
if they get both they can decide which one of us is right :)
it's obviously me, but whatevs ;)
get shot down like a shot-down thing. I'm going for the populist vote man.
i'll be proven right by the good folk of dis, i know that :)
