Visiter is brilliant isn't it. Better than Mumford & Sons.
Good, but forgettable. Over time I just found it to be a pretty average record.
and it got me all excited. Love the sharp guitar sound and vocals.
Shame they've never come close to matching it.
I listened to it for the first time in a while too, I'd forgotten how strong it is throughout, at an hour long.
I wasn't really fussed with Time to Die though, nor have I been compelled to listen to their first album.
the only one who really loved Time To Die. I think it's an exceptional album, with some really great songs. Much maligned in my book.
but I found the album a bit disappointing on the whole.
The Dodo's terrible album cover
Chatted with dude during headliner's whole set, really nice guy.
Wrote Visiter review for this here website 8/10... oh, I did Time to Die, too 6/10. But ended on an upnote: next album will be great methinks.
I think I only listened to it once, I must give it another spin.
it says at the top
Here's the funny thing: I remember thinking this is really pretty great, return to form, and as you can see, I'd forgotten about it, and iTunes says I only listened once....
As a music critic, I'd say it's pretty great, but as a music fan, their rootsy sound is outside my usual demographic....
Listening now: yeah, first track is stellar... *shrugs*
tell me about them
The Season is probably my fav song
...of your 'zany' friend, who, as it turns out, isn't very 'zany'.
...Visitor is a decent record with some interesting sounds, but the band weren't able to maintain that level of ingenuity over the following releases and ended up sounding try-hard and bland.
*= delayed thought. i blame the drink.
