It arrived yesterday and i'm very glad it did.
superb album, sterling work!
It is indeed an excellent album. Looking forward to the new stuff.
personal favourite: Gibbon - amazing.
ps while i'm here ive been listening to maybeshewill's remix of the butterfly effect a lot the last few days. stunning stuff.
those MSW boys certainly know how to do a good remix!
oh, and my own personal favourite from animals is Badger. that, or Chinchilla. Or Baboon.
but yours is the bestest :P
also i had a blast last night listening to Arrivals while walking home in the dark and rain. muchos atmospheric.
yeah, dark and atmospheric is what we do best ;)
our newer, bigger, better remix album is coming soon btw...
But there's an over-emphasis on the guitar tapestries, which over-shadows the awesome song-writing that was clear on earlier singles such as Wanna Go Back To My Place...
You're right about the "tapestries". I almost can't listen to it song-by-song, it just doesn't work for me in three minute chunks. I have to put it on all at once, often while I'm doing something else.
If I do that, I find myself enjoying it lots. Well done.
One of the most disappointing albums of recent times. Maybe I expected too much, but the split with Cats x3 was awesome. Animals was actually slightly boring. Still, I'll buy whatever they release yet.
preordered the lp, listened 4 or 5 times and sold instantly. not great at all, which is a shame.
