'Its Blitz' - has it got the DiS seal of approval?
And the 40 comments or so afterwards largely suggested that it was worthy of that.
I think's its another 'Show me your bones' for me. Seems great at first, and very well rounded, but will turn out to be a solid 7/10 LP in a few years time in hindsight. But in my book, a 7 is thoroughly decent as opposed to the average score the world has somehow deemed it to be.
It does have that ace new slow one on it though, this albums' 'Maps'. They always manage one great slower one per record, don't they? 'SMYBones' had one too...
So far I really like it, but I can't see it ever changing my life or making me as excited as that debut did.
they're a stange band. their albums always have a few corking songs and a few duffs. i really like zero though.
NME did a decent article on them a couple of week back.
made me fancy karen-o
But nothing truely momentous. All great tunes, but nothing thats gonna make you tell people 'FUCK you gotta hear this track' etc...
but nothing earth shattering, its just compulsive listening without being essential.
