Just on 3rd play of album now - sounds brilliant.
lisbon didnt really do it for me apart from angela surf city
makes my heart melt. its brilliant
On first impressions i'm finding it pretty bland. This sounds like The Walkmen with the edges shaved off. There's none of the bombast, none of the jazzy chords and not much in the way of melody. It's got nothing on their last 3 records. I really hope it grows on me cos i'm a big fan of this band.
Cos I've got a feeling it might be a bit crap.
Thanks for the heads up!
I'm liking it and think the is scope to grow. Like the first track, an interesting choice a la "We Dance" on Wowee Zowee...
really doesn't sound like him. I thought I had the wrong band for the first minute or so
Not to say that it's not a good album, but as my most anticipated release of this year, I'm kind of hoping that repeated listens move it up abit. Second half particularly concerns.
It took until the 5th listen for it to properly hit me. Then when it does...wow!
I'm a firm believer in 'growers'. Hope this record is one of them.
but plan to listen a few times
will give it a couple more
It's unravelling gorgeously, much like Lisbon did.
