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
it says at the top
tell me about them
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.
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*
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.
