but does anybody else occasionally stick Love Is Here on and enjoy it?
Way to Fall 4 lyf.
and it reminds me of my Uni days (had a house mate who would wonder round singing the opening line to "Alcoholic" whenever we were drinking).
I love it so much that I contest the title of this thread.
A band with such a strong debut cannot be "fucking shit" - no matter how underwhelming all that followed might be.
But even with that said, their second album was also quite good, and I remember really enjoying the third throughout the four listens I gave it.
Radiohead, The Smiths, Smashing Pumpkins, Pavement and.... Starsailor... those were my teenage top 5.
Saw them live in 2009 and then didn't listen to them at all until this year when I got the urge to revisit Love Is Here. The other albums still seem really, really naff though.
The title track from Silence is Easy is still magnificent.
Just played through Silence Is Easy and On The Outside.
Mostly wet as piss in a bad way.
Better than anything on the debut for my money
I'll never forget when I popped disc 2 of my region 3 (Korean) copy of Oldboy into the DVD player for the first time to watch some of the extras, and Bring My Love of all songs started blasting out over the main menu. Oldboy + Starsailor, that was a surreal combo.
I don't hate Starsailor as much as everybody else. They were a wet, whiny and overwrought band, but I won't deny my enjoyment of many of their songs. Even the naff last album had Neon Sky on it, which is a career highlight for sure.
And you can add me to the list of people who consider Silence is Easy a tune.
what next, a Turin Brakes revision
Everything else - shit.
then they went shit for two albums. They had a comeback album "we were here" that was actually quite good and sounded a lot like the first album.
First three Starsailor albums are ok as well. The 4th one was them clearly running out of tunes.
not really but sort of
As it got me into Jeff Buckley.
