Bows + Arrows, right?
nor should they be defined by it.
Sometimes I think Jonathan Fire Eater* was the better band...but no, The Walkmen are top-tier awesomeness.
And I would say everyone who pretended to like me is gone, if not just for 'rue the day.'
You & Me. both incredible.
Is their best, but they are all pretty fuckin brilliant.
definitely ... can't fathom why other's don't rate it - it's great.
You & Me is next best. I don't like Bows + Arrows - The Rat just sounds like a second-rate Strokes knock off.
that's pretty low Julian, sowing seeds of dissent against the better band.
less austere, more warmth.
but I don't think The Walkmen have ever done anything as good as Tremble Under Boom Lights. That (mini) album has one of the most distinctive, intoxicating sounds I've ever heard.
with Lisbon a close third. Big hopes for the new one - saxe this rather mediocre year to date.
love that album, nothing since has had quite that same atmosphere, though the rat is probably in the top 10 songs of all time
that seals the deal.
after that, Lisbon, Bows + Arrows and You & Me are inseperable.
I always found I switched off listening to The Walkmen. Lisbon changed all that. My favourite record of their records by a very big margin.
