Here's a new song:
Massive fucking sulk.
or if it sounds like Dire Straits.
I thought my worst case scenario would be going through that whole kid-myself-i-like-it for a bit process that I do every time Twilight Singers release an album.
Blackberry Belle is a gem.
and there's always one or two crackers on them, but I never revisit the albums and I find them too tasteful. The only time I really GET Twilight Singers is live. And She Loves You because the production is markedly different.
from my certainty of how bad this is. I feel like I'm going through stages of grief. I'm due to be angry with them in but 3 minutes.
Mid tempo MOR cack. That lead guitar break is rubbish though in all honesty not even Rick McCollum, had he been involved, would have saved this.
Yeah, I don't like this at all and that is coming from someone who loves Dulli and western. I just hope that the rest of the album will be better.
Either way, the wind has been taken from my sails and my expectations have been lowered. You can hear snippets of each song on Amazon at the moment. I'm scared to listen though.
"Disappointing" is an understatement.
i'm liking it a lot more. subtle, understated song complimented by a dramatic, ott video - it sort of works.
there are a lot of subtle little vocal and guitar melodies going on in there that are really appealing once you pink them out, i think. it's more atmospheric than explosive, sure.
no it's not the whigs as we knew 'em but hey that was a long, long time ago. and we know they can still cut it live, the sexy bastards.
Perfectly executed MOR is great.
I also think it's great and I'm glad it's not what was expected of them...it sounds fresh
I'm also not much of a fan of the twilight singers and I think Dulli is sounding in much better form on this
is it just me or is there a hint of auto-tune on the bit after the guitar solo?? I'm really sure i can hear it...it sounds cool
there'd be nothing left of him...
What should I ask him?
He might hit you tho'..
...the album is pretty fucking great.
