the three new songs they've played live haven't been up to much unfortunately.
but lacked the intensity of previous albums. Yeah, probably my least favourite Low album (though by comparison still a good album)
that's their weakest imho
And so is Drums and Guns
which in turn makes I Could Live in Hope and The Great Destroyer extremely superb.
I know that's the indiest thing i could've possibly said, but i dont care.
except for the odd song
Shame on you all! I only let myself play it in December and so I'm starting to get feverish in anticipation
and thus i remain very fond of it, and I thought C'mon was very solid if not brilliant
everyone likes different Low albums.
In a year's time this new one will be someone's favourite.
For the record, it's Drums & Guns for me.
you count Things We Lost In The Fire as "their later stuff". For me it's their best album.
i've not heard secret name though.
I only ever listen to low if i want to hear something crushingly depressing. Things we lost in the fire is good but not depressing enough really.
I think Secret Name and Things We Lost In The Fire are their 2 best albums actually.
The others are just brilliant
it's good like.
It was great to hear Low in a completely different context. It feels strangley unfinished, but that just adds to the intrigue.
I don't have a great deal of love for C'mon though.
for the first time in years and there is some heavy stuff going on on that album.
I bet it'll be brilliant. in the pattern of recent albums, i.e. poor, brilliant, poor...
I will be so disillusioned if a Tweedy-helmed Low record isn't a knockout.
i dunno if Alan's running out of steam or spreading himself too thin nowadays..
something like that.
Pretty shit song, though.
Haven't done anything brilliantly consistent since Trust. Going back I still think "The Curtain Hits The Cast" is the ultimate Low album, so dark and dense. The warmest and loveliest is probably "Secret Name", those strings...
is quite likely the greatest Low song ever off of C'mon. Don't get how one likes Fire and doesn't like C'mon or Drums and Guns. You're pretty much following them push their sound in different directions now and it's fascinating. All the album's are growers as well.
