Left & Right In The Dark <3
the first three songs are great, the rest are pretty so so
Can't wait to get to the end of the album so I can listen to Left & Right In The Dark again
the fact that the first three songs are genuinely cracking does at least give me a pretty solid level of hope that the next Strokes album will at least be sort of worthwhile.
with each track being at least as good as the first 4-5 on this record.
4 Chords of The Apocalypse - awesome tune. Good record overall, really looking forward to the new Strokes.
Could be wrong but i'm pretty sure it's just 'Chords Of The Apocalypse'...with '4' just being the track number.
Our survey says URNGH UGH
iTunes duly corrected
but then that should be expected. no-one likes a solo record from a band already held under intense critical suspicion. this LP was an easy ridicule for so many lazy members of the press whore hole. truth is, PFTY has got more ideas, more invention, all held together with more melodies in its eight tracks than most bands can summon in a lifetime. it might not be perfect, but its a damn sight more interesting for being just that. fascinating, exhilarating.
"I got music, comin out of my hands and feet and kisses"
I still wince when I hear that. And that's one of the better songs on the album.
it's not the greatest lyric, granted, but one bad lyric ? bad song, just as one good lyric ? good song.
I'm really rather partial to the rest of the lyrics to '11th Dimension' (and on the album as a whole).
Great album in my estimation. OP is right, though, 'Left & Right in the Dark' is the best of the bunch.
'Out Of The Blue' is the track I mean.
its exuberant. and a little geeky. all the more charming for it. lyrics for 'out of the blue' are class.
