new album sounds promising
I'm a bit underwhelmed. Maybe it is a grower though.
I really like it.
Hmmm...bit auto-pilot. Not bad, but it's hardly a French Navy or Lloyd, I'm Ready To Be Heartbroken. Still hoping it'll be a good album as a whole though.
but it's only good because they've written good songs before. It's Camera Obscura by numbers. It sounds like the best bits from their best songs, but because it doesn't feel new or original, I just don't buy it.
I'm sorry - I love some Camera Obscura songs, but this isn't pushing my buttons.
Why do I get a feeling camera obscura are going to be the third crushing disappointment for me this year :(
Just glad to have 'em back. Does sound like it's destined to be on an advert for a furniture shop or something though. Oh well. As Tracy Anne said when they got heckled at a gig for flogging Country Mile to Tescos (was it?) "If we didn't sell that song to Tesco we'd have to work there". Great band.
Wonder if they're aware of the Deerhunter song?
I guess they're the most successful of that school of 2001 UK indiepop bands that John Peel championed, and that I have particular fond memories of - Bearsuit, Saloon, Ballboy, Tompaulin, Melys et al. I'm no longer at the stage of buying their 7" and CD singles but would like to see them live again. And 'Suspended From Class' remains one of the great album openers.
Anticipation back up the expected level now.
Fifth in line to the throne is Princess Beatrice
Not sure what that means to the song but there you go anyway!
