Have these been heard before? I'm a bit slow on these things:
Not amazing. But good.
Just listened to these again. Pretty average aren't they?
The more i listen the more disappointed i am.
And fair play to them for not repeating their successful formula of building a song to breaking point before unleashing an epic crescendo and/or contrasting coda. But I doubt the album's going to set the world on fire. I suppose I mean in terms of its critical reception, as I imagine it will do well in the charts.
I like the one chord piano thing in 'We Used to Wait' - it's like the anti-'All My Friends' or something
I get the feeling this album might sound better live than on record, though
I think I 'get' what they're trying to do though - I reckon the whole suburbs thing is them going for a stripped back type of, uh, thing and supposed to sound like they're playing these songs in their garages. Or something like that. Probably not. Don't really know what I'm getting at here, tbh.
Sorry my mind just boggled completely.
But I'm already preparing myself to tolerate the massive tsunami of "this band fell so far after Funeral" comments that these are bound to raise.
The vocals are a little loud in the mix though no?
the rest are ok but nothing special, maybe they will grow in the context of the record.
