Really lazy criticism of the criticism that that guy did. Some of the worst music criticism criticism I've ever seen
wrote off the last two albums with 'meh'
can we have a thread about that?
If it was two then that's fine.
I guess it'll be like an average Oasis album, with a couple of good pop hooks but otherwise nondescript. I take the 0/10 as a call to arms - a carpet bomb on the entire lineage of whatever "proper tunes with proper lads" music is, and a shameless attempt to end it once and for all.
There has been a problem in the last two decades with people who think as British rock music went, Oasis were the origin of the species... the type who thought "We don't talk about love, we only wanna get drunk" was a drinking song and the status quo (pun fully intended) is that working class bands shouldn't write intelligent music, as that's for posh geeks, innit. I'd put good money on the BNP/EDL supporters in Burnley forming much of their fanbase. If this review destroys a few of that "type" it can only be a good thing.
ironically, acting a bit like Oasis
fookin' outrageous review. Lennon would be turning in his grave, man. He was a true lad - just like Shaun Ryder. But he was a bit too laddy.
and not go on and on about the context and personal gripes.
I just want music reviews.
the review comes to a screeching hault the moment it all backfires
is another thread on the Music Board. Anyone want to start one?
it's about the other threads.
I might start a thread about the thread about other threads. :)
I thouroughly recommend the experience.
