deserves a thread.
what a great record. ridiculous and over-reaching just as all good records should be. and rocks.
i wish theyd tour again.
We've just been working with the producer who made it. Hope our stuff comes out sounding as huge
my opinion changes every time i hear it
It's just such an extraordinarily obtuse record, and I love that someone wrote a review that said it'd only appeal to Limp Bizkit and Maroon 5 fans. That's what it does to you, s'pose.
I must've listened to "Les Savy Fav" about 50 times the week it came out! You can imagine how happy I was when Andrew and Cahir played some songs off it a few months ago
everything they have done is fantastic.
seems i'm the only one that voted for them for Vs The Fans.
they'd be the perfect band to play Reds. PERFECT.
It's their best work as well, pure class from start to finish. I really wish they'd tour again.
NOW I CAN NEVER PLAY THAT WHITE MUSIC AGAIN!
loved the first 2.
i think when you cringe at least once in every song on an album it's a v bad sign.
I loved 'once like a spark' so much.
the first time i heard it i felt a bit weird about it, but a few plays dispells this. it's an awesome album, in every sense. And also a brilliant band.
And I love it.
unfortunately my copy got stolen in beijing airport about 6 months ago. somewhere in china there is a baggage handler absolutely loving this record.
Not like the journeys planned in '98.
are them playing at reading festival when i was waiting for biffy to come on after them (1999 2000?) i dont remember even what they sound like haha
jetplane -> biffy -> hell is for heroes. BRITROCKREVOLUTION.
What a fun couple of hours that was!
i get all reading fests mixed up from about 1995-2002 when i last went haha
and true, it does make you cringe in places but it's ok, Jetplane have always done their own thing though, you only have to look at the difference in styles between Once Like A Spark and Zero For Conduct to see that and that's why I've always admired them, they're not afraid to change
sometimes i love it and sometimes i hate it
of a great band who were always on the move creatively. Some of the lyrics can great, but then so do some of the early ones. However put a few hundred people in a room with them and it's magic. Still my favourite gig of all time was seeing these guys on the Once Like a Spark tour.
twas a bit special
also, the There Is No Real Courage Without Real Danger 23 (or 24) track single is legendary
Was at Truck if i remember, and the night before in Devizes - they only done a handfull of live dates to go with it, so it was criminally underpeformed!
I'd put money on their being another album by the end of next year...
