Anyone heard the new album yet? Seems to be getting a lot of good reviews. How does it compare to their previous stuff?
although not as much as the previous album which i pretty much loved every track.
The new one hs 3-4 really good tracks ('French Navy' and 'Swans' being my two favourites). Still a pretty enjoyable listen and worth getting if you liked any of their previous albums.
but I'm not sure I love it (yet). Previous albums have been totally listenable (hmm, not sure that's a word) but this one has its notable vapid lulls. Still worth picking up I'd say, especially for swans, sweetest thing, and my favourite, french navy. Their tour kicks off tonight, and i'm off to see them tomorrow in manchester, so if you get the chance to see them live, do so. As ever, it's a totally different kettle of poisson when you hear them live and i'm hoping that they convert me on some of teh duller tracks tomorrow.(Also, they are suppotred by attic lights, teenage fanclub proteges and allround Good Guys).
