I'm not starting trouble, I just can't gleam anything positive from it. It sounds awful in many parts.
It is terrible. I am going to take great pleasure in slamming it to the ground when I get around to writing my audioscribbler review for it.
and wasn't terribly impressed with it, so I look forward to your review.
they're trying out loads of different genres, in a tongue in cheek way, and doing a good job of it. and i really like the weird production. trapped in a basement is the best song i've heard so far this year (not including the yeah yeah yeahs album)
they seem to have slowed it down a fair bit, kinda gone a bit more trad rock or something. There's just no up beat howling garage rock tunes, like Katrina, Cold hands etc. I like it a bit more shambolic. I hope this isn't a permanent change of direction.
and certainly not trad rock. it sounds like people on drugs
its nothing like their older stuff, they also have a much raw sound.
slower, dirgier songs like sweet kin and everybody loves a cocksucker, and the production on this new is definitely not clean
bypassing the entire debate about genre/sound, I just thought the songs were lazily written, boring and generally poor.
