One of the albums of the year, it's incredible...
+ you can totally rock out to it...
how's it different from the first album?
They're as noisy as ever, but I find melodies from this album getting stuck in my head constantly, not the case with the s/t.
not that the first was bad at all, it sounded cold like it was recorded in a huge igloo at the north pole which suited the mood of the record very well, where as the new record sounds like it was recorded on a distant planet made of fire.
i think generally reviews have said it's not as strong as the first record but i disagree, they've got much better at as a band and it's more experimental than the first yet more melodic too.
an album of the year for me too.
I've got to say, I'm not really digging the first track so much, but 'Die Slow' is so brilliant that it immediately makes me forget that. Plus the video for 'Die Slow' is some kind of fucking super badass! :D
more so than the first...
Great, great album. Severin is possibly the best thing they've ever written.
is the cd out anytime soon? I'll grab it then
on vinyl, but i think the cd was out at the same time.
I'll have to have a look around for it.
Anyways according to play.com it's out today...
it will go in my next order then, I mean my next order that isnt a million dubstep 12"s.
Yeah it was on sale in Rough Trade East yesterday so it's definitely out...
by them live, and regarding the first album as mostly unlisteneable, I find these news of growing up encouraging and will be buying the record asap.
But did tend to strip them of the energy they have live, whereas the new one does a great job of translating how intense they are onstage. Still doesn't quite match seeing them live, but the songs stand up very strongly in their recorded versions, unlike the first album where the songs just sounded so much better in the live setting.
Every little helps, and I have no shame.
Are you working for the BBC now Mike? Still working at Clash...?
And nice work on writing with the BBC now!
I did wonder as pretty much the only reason I checked Clash was to scope out your opinion on stuff - I hadn't seen your name mentioned for a while. Keep up the good work!
We're putting them on in Sheffield...
This is going to be great. Hopefully they'll give another shout-out to Mike!
My first experience of the Harley was a pretty messy one, mind.
A souped-up version (that is to say, more alcoholic, not containing soup) is in development as we speak.
Die Slow is great but they're a bit silly really...
but when I listened to Get Colour a few times I just found it a bit unnecessary and noise for noise's sake. Maybe I'm just being a girl about it all...
Like I said though, Die Slow is ace and the artwork for the record is brilliant.
the video is pretty cool too.
can't wait to see them at the garage nxt month.
so it seems. Can't wait to hear it all tonight :)
not feeling it yet maybe it will sit better in an album... of Kasabians...
its just that riff in Die Slow it really sounds like them and I cant shake it, I'm hoping they blast that idea out of me by playing it live right in my face next month when I go see um.
although i do my best to ignore the likeness, im hoping too the live version knocks all likeness out of me.
