and i must say, so am i. fantastic stuff
they gave it a mediocer mark and pretty much said they are rip off merchants that haven't grown out of their influences yet.
'More representative is the unbelievable, Cunningham-produced “Three Decades,” which marries windily counter-rhythmic guitar to “Sheena”-fast drums and Badwan’s awesomely proper enunciation, all of it bathed in industrial ’80s air that evokes Dr. Frankenstein chasing his monster across the Swiss Alps. Like the famous doctor, the Horrors started out with a frightening image, and in some haunted mansion they actually found the weird science to make it a reality. What the next step is for an overgrown, melodic shoegaze/gothpunk hybrid seems like a bad joke, but if they’ve gotten this far successfully there’s no question they can keep paving their own road towards something else no one’s thought of before.'
sure, they're not licking their balls, but it sounds like praise to me
also, 7 isn't a mediocre mark.
look at the bottom of the page: 70-74%: Impressive; well above average
they dont seem to enthusiastic about it, its prob a fair review though. I still cant decide wether to give it a try or not. DiS loved it this is in the middle then p4k and fact thought it was pretty shite... I just dunno
Conrad Amenta, whose reviews are the most 6th form wanky, turgid collection of bollocks I've ever seen.
It was some time back since I read it I thought it was less favourable, its just all the reveiws read like they aint to enthused and list loads of influences instead.
It's alright so far nowt to exciting but yeah its alright, even if bits make me cringe a bit cos there a little to obviously stolen. I'm a fan of sampeling though so I'll prob get past that soon enough.
A friend sent me a link to this thread. Nice to know someone's reading. It's been hard to wank and remain turgid.
i'm thinking some abstinence might be in order, is all. stop tugging at yourself mate. stop.
you got off pretty lightly in fairness. ever heard of paul morley?
is as much as is possible. Every time I see a review, I draw to the bottom of the page with bated horror, horror which is confirmed as I see the name of music reviewing's Doogie Howser. Pretentious, introspective gashwrap.
oh well. I mean it's not BAD, but it's not really a keeper either.
