Just listened to It's Blitz for the first time in ages, and realised what a beautiful song this is. That is all.
it's worth tracking down.
They strip them down and they sound so vulnerable and fragile its amazing. Little Shadow is especially awesome.
after a shakey Show Us Your Bones, it's every bit as good as Fever To Tell IMHO
actually my fav release by them I think :D
Fever to Tell is the weak one
That is all
I thought it was called 'It's Derek'
uh-oh-oh-oh uh-oh-oh-oh-oh uh-oh-oh-oh-oh uh-oh it's Derek
I always recognised 'It's Derek' as the standout track. For all the same reasons as 'Maps', it's something very special.
I found it very weird how lots of reviews and debate about the record neglected to mention how awesome this track was initially. Maybe it was a grower for some, but it stood out as an album highlight for me by some way. I think I'll always prefer their earlier work but this track has to be in their top 5 easily.
I know I was one of them, saying about how it reminded me of Maps but in a not so similar way that it was a poor mans maps.
Made me realise how great this song actually is.
