everyone actually really likes it, right?
or did. haven't actually played it in years.
the title track, "let it dive" and "will you smile again for me" in particular are fantastic
shut up theo.
hey FUCK YOU, mannnnnnn
that song would be one of my favourites evererer if it weren't for some absolute fucking nonsense lyrics... as it is it's still pretty bloody mint.
look at these cunts on MTV with cars and cribs and rings and shit?
the first verse about 'scenes these days all sound the same to me'
think they were right to get a battering for that
i love goofy music.
I enjoy air drumming along to it.
Loved it at the time, still do. Just the right balance of epicness and their shouty frenetic stuff.
the title track's lyrics make me wince a bit. Shame as it is a great song.
"Look at those cunts on MTV
with their cars and cribs and rings and shit.
Is that what being a celebrity means?"
was Conrad's backtrack ON MTV2, "I didn't say MTV were cunts, I said the *people* being played on MTV were cunts" or some such. Probably part and parcel of the major label contract to not alienate them though. Still...
End song is bloody lovely.
It's a great album and as it happens contains the bands 'hit' single (in Germany at least)'Wind Him Up'.
Not even a patch on ST&C or Madonna. Sorry to burst your bubble, and all.
It's quite good, but a long way off their best
despite its obvious flaws
This. It doesn't have better songs that other records of theirs, but I like it a lot as a complete unit. In the same way that Sandinista is a lot of people's favourite Clash record.
got me into Trailodead.
I'll give it that
