Just heard the album. I don't get it. At all. What am I missing?
But with VG on so many top-whatever lists...they're good, but not great obv...maybe 08 was really quite average...
you either like it or you don't i guess. I happen to enjoy it muchly.
but am confused why they topped all the lists and that cos stuff i like normally doesn't have that sort of mass appeal. i was talking to some people in nyc a while ago and they saw VG as "just a local band" and when i told them how huge they were over here they were like "WHUT, THAT MAKES NO SENSE".
but, i mean, their shows in london sold out right away etc. that makes them quite a big deal.
That just DOESN'T HAPPEN!!
Shitting hell. Weren't they playing at Captain's Rest though, which only holds about twenty people comfortably?
I don't mind really, because I COMPLETELY FORGOT ABOUT IT (:@), so I'm glad I didn't go right down and get turned away. But that still sucks for other people (you)
that's crazy! glad i ended up not going, then.
I listened to their album for the first time last night. it didn't really hold my attention, but i did quite like it. i'm guessing it will grow on me.
but i got the feeling a lot of people were there for betty and the werewolves.
i really vivian girls. put the album on in the office a few times and it took until the third play for my boss to get it
but it did seem like a lot of them were there for betty and the werewolves
But thought it sounded maybe too much like a lot of stuff I already liked.
Then I saw them live and they were AMAZING and when I listen to the album now it sounds completely different to how I remember it before and I love it so much.
i saw them before i heard the album and thought they were great, in comparison i don't find the album so great. still a bit annoyed i missed them when they toured here earlier this month but oh well.
But yeh, you're right about them being really good live. Plus, they taught me how to be psychic.
I do. Neil and I can do it now, but only rrrrrrrealy slowly.
yes I am that shallow. awww I wanna know how to do the psychic thing real bad!!!!!!!!
i thought it was pretty good
It's a hoot. A hoot!
I didn't get to see them live, the album's not amazing but there are some awesome tracks on it.
albums that make up (just as an example:) the DiS 50 from a great height.
I'm with what they say here:
'Electro Punk' - please let it die.
If you don't like a record, that's perfectly fine. You don't need to be validated by others.
