and they were awful.
but surely that's all a bit harsh?!
what's his user name again?
PS The "it's a grower, then" comment made me laugh.
PSS Never heard of White Lies. But 0% might be a tad harsh. I give bands that can play a C chord, like, 8% just for that. :)
lyrics aside, good band. but the interpol similarities will be their downfall in terms of gaining massive success with anyone who happens to be a bit of a geek about music - everyone here- i'm guessing.
i meant credibility, and whether a band will be recognised in future years for contributing to the progression of music. I mean, they will be successful with certain types of people and will always be laughed at by others, and to be properly successful theyre gonna need a devoted following rather than just casual listeners, otherwise its gonna be a flash in the pan type thing.
like the kooks or something, who no-one gives a shit about now. i might just be ridiculously out of touch though?
this is flat, dead and devoid of interest.
It implies it can't get any worse. But imagine the same song, but with crap out of time drums, and out of tune vocals.
and calling them all cunts?
noticed the white lies advert at the top of the page ? haha unfortunate
The Line of Best Fit is a good read, but has a pretty limited readership. A bad review on here or in the NME would do them much more damage. NME still has eight times the online readership of DiS, and DiS gets five times more than TLOBF (rough estimates from Alexa).
Haven't heard a single note of their music yet, so I'll wait until I do before writing them off because of their personalities.
Hope that I'm not alone in finding it weird how much hype and backlash there is for a band that literally have just got out of the gate. Their PR must be doing a good job, at least.
they were on Jools Holand last year sometime and talked about being the next big thing fro a while. But then they disapeared and came back with even more cash behind them!
I can't stand them, I've not read Whymans rant I can't really be arsed right now. I like it when he goes apeshit and gives stuff a 0 or full marks. Infact I only really read TLOBF to catch a lil bit of his stuff.
are there *asteriscs* next to *every* other *word*?*
