ummmmm......it's very ballady.
but I really dont like this
i can't BELIEVE no one else has replied to this. everyone loves WHY? right?
I love Why? but i don't love Ballads and that they're saying it's less art hip-hop :(
you know - here's a band we jizzed over last year, now let's put the boot in... that sort of thing.
But this is weak. Very weak.
This sounds pretty nice, but I got bored of Alopecia so quickly, wouldn't be suprised if the same happened with this.
but Alopecia had at least as much hip-hop as Elephant Eyelash surely? Stuff like The Fall Of Mr Fifths, Torpedo Or Crohns, Good Friday... I dunno, all his albums have been very different anyway so it'll be interesting to see where he goes with this.
but i still feel deflated
The one at the piano.
the were moments when I was thinking 'chris martin called, he wants his piano back'
and it's a bit soft. But that distinctive voice is still there in abundance and the lyrics are good. I can see the move away from hip hop arguement. But if that's what they want to do then fair enough - let's see what it's like in context with th rest of the album. Granted, i will be slightly disappointed if it's all like this though.
like it, and as a result am excited for the new album!
which is quite different to most of his previous music.
the same can be said for a slow tempo.
however, when one combines the two, and creates a slow, maudlin song about EMOTIONS, that can quite easily be interpreted as a ballad.
But I do find myself curiously indifferent to this - which makes me think that, if it wasn't by a band that I actively love, I would probably dislike it.
This is less unlistenable, but still boring
but this sounds like bad emo.
Although it sounds a bit show-tuney at the beginning. But he is still a ridiculously incredible lyricist.
It's cool. All of their records so far have been great in my opinion, and this song leads me to believe that Eskimo Snow will continue the streak. It's funny that somebody compared this to Coldplay. I don't really agree at all, but it makes me smile to think such a mediocre band like Coldplay has become so ubiquitous that Why? would end up being compared to them.
album is great. it's a departure for sure, and clearly not a radical one just a slightly unexpected one, but still, bands move on and Why?'s no different. hearing it, it's likely to make the dreaded 'cross over' but then you wouldn't begrudge one of your favourite bands reaching a wider audie... oh I forgot where i was for a second there...
