How did you like it?
I thought it was a bit of a let down, maybe it will grow on me
so i'll probably think its shit
not if you think you'll like it.
really starting to like it
There's nothing on there that comes close to the great tracks on their debut. NOTHING.
It's not a bad album but I'm veering towards a meh on this one.
Slowly but shirley.
although I think the first half is better than the second.
even though I fear VW have become the new Dave Mathews band/hootie and the blowfish
Hardly a massive departure or anything, but you can hear some seepage from the Discovery side project.
'White Sky' sounds like like that 'Whizz Pop Whizz Bang' song from The BFG.
That bassline on "Giving up the Gun" and the bit on "Diplomat's Son" w/ the guy from Discovery singing are both so Discovery.
The second half is way better then the first!
Only "Horchata" and to certain extent "California English" make the first half so good. Second half goes way harder. Though "Cousins" probably should have went on the first half. Sounds like filler there near the end.
Harder to swallow but better in the long run and more to chew on. I think 'Diplomat's Son' and 'California English' may be the best stuff they've done. I admit it took a few listens but I remain impressed right now.
'I Think Ur A Contra' is a real slow-burning classic, grows on me every single time I hear the album. I also love Run and Diplomat's Son, and generally very happy that theyve delivered a good second album.
More evidence that after 15 years of Oasis, people are finally starting to salute bands with brains again.
by this I mean mainstream acceptance.
so i can't mentally include that in a review of the album. good song.
white sky is the only other worthwhile track. cousins is crap too.
