it was my low starting point.
I think. There's a few crackers on there (Belarus, Dragonfly, Murderer, Breaker), but it's not as good as the Great Destroyer, which in turn wasn't quite as good as Trust, which in turn was almost as good as Things we lost in the fire.
I should use < more often.
i think it's possibly better than all 3
I think it's kind of underrated. It didn't feature in any 'best of the year' polls I saw from when it was released and it seemed to get 7/10 3/5 type reviews. I think it's really good though, it's a new direction but still accessible.
Surely Low should be due to release something new soon?
I think it's better than the Great Destroyer and Trust. Not Things We Lost in the Fire though.
but has a few duff tracks, certainly not up to low's usual high standards
now i don't think there's a single bad track on it. some of them take a long time to sink in
its pretty bad ass, actually I really like it! LOTS! Where shall i go from here?
I'd say either Trust or Things We Lost In The Fire. As my post below suggests, I don't rate either quite as highly as TGD, but they're both very good all the same. Much more low-key and slow-burning. Trust is an extremely wintry album.
Is also superb, if a little quieter (cleaner?) sounding. Long Division, with Violence and Shame on it is a winner.
but also some really boring stuff. Find it hard to make it all the way through the album. Still, Murderer is unbeatable.
The Great Destroyer is the best Low album, in my humble estimation. Dark and compelling and bitingly beautiful from start to finish.
Especially the closing 1-2 of Murderer and Violent Past.
Was a big favourite of mine for a long while but I haven't listened for a bit.
if they hadnt completely fucked up 'breaker'.
another great Low album. In fact you don't really discuss whether a Low album is good but you discuss what a great band Low is. Everything they do will be great and interesting in some way.
