Anyone heard it? Any good?
Reviewing for The Quietus, although concentrating on anything other than Animal Collective is hard this month.
it might be as good as I'm A Bird Now. maybe. we'll see.
leave me a bit cold I must admit. Just don't think the tunes hold together.
with your brain.
Crackagen is nowhere near Antony's finest song, in his outstanding collection of flawless songs. Crackagen was more like an EP 7.3. Even that EP had two much better songs.
Also, yes, Antony is more soulful. That is pretty much his WHOLE thing, so if you're going for soul, you get Antony. Melodramatic, over-the-top at times but that's what I love so much about him.
Animal Collective shouldn't really be compared, though.
OH, and the new album is wonderful, yes. Not sure where it ranks with I Am a Bird Now, since, you know, that one came first, and is one of the best of the millenium already (in my opinion), so due to its similarity, I'll give the prize to I Am A Bird Now, for now.
started yesterday at the Isis gallery in london. only about 10 pieces but very nice, worth checking out if you're a fan
across the atlantic immediately! Thanks!
well maybe it'll travel.
really, really beautiful...atm almost on par with I am a bird now, if not quite...mainly down to the shear amount of plays for I am a bird now, so I reckon it has a good chance of ovetaking
Not the mark or anything or their opinions on the new album, but the first two paragraphs are just complete rubbish in my opinion. I know that sounds like me getting annoyed simply because I disagree with them but I do think that it's really bad thought out (I Am A Bird Now less well regarded than Silent Alarm? Antony and the Johnsons grouped with Adam and the Ants? Eh?).
What a load of absolute rubbish.
I hate people saying he hasn't done anything since I Am A Bird Now until this. It's just really lazy and totally wrong.
It's not like he's done nothing for three or four years - his songs with Bjork, Hercules and Love Affair...
is a decent track, bit of a builder. It is on the new album right? Or is it a B-side? Either way I'm excited for the newie.
Which came out late last year.
