Got it yesterday. It just 'aint all that. Opening tune sounds like Coldplay for Christ's sake.
I much prefer it to their debut. I find it even more tuneful (if that was possible). I really don't hear Coldplay at all.
it again now and it sounds very good. The guy sounds like Bowie and it's very tuneful.
Don't get me wrong. I fucking LOVE Stellastarr*. But I just think this album doesn't have the same stand out tunes as the debut. It seems so much more layered, over produced and fluffy. There's less distortion and grittiness. They sound like they've become a band who've lost their edge. Almost as if they're trying to be too musical and arty.
Still, 'On My Own' absolutely rules. But that's because it's a really old song of theirs.
is it out here yet?
Stellastarr*. I need to hear this album. When can I buy it? WHEN? ANSWER ME YOU BASTARDS!
Use Soulseek, because I am a technocripple. I need hard copies, goddammit!
...in America. But no release date here till New Year. But you can buy i on Amazon etc. Not only that but HMV sells it. I got it in Brent Cross this weekend. Â£12.99 HMV import.
It is then. If I must. Although I swore I'd never go there in my life, this may make it worth it.
I have relatives going to the states this week and I've told 'em to buy me a copy of it! I too am unable to download, but as a die-hard fan, only a physcial copy will doodle-doo.
Amazon's market place is a great starting point, there are several people who will import at reasonable prices.
As it's the run-up to Xmas, I'm sure Sony/RCA will have bigger priorities, and so Blighty may not see this 'til 06.
...me to send it to you Bamos?
I'll probably buy it when it comes out, but I wouldn't mind listening to it first. That'd be quality if you could mate, great stuff. I'm not sure what I can offer in return...erm...we'll cross that bridge when we come to it! Send me an email.
... to the email address in my profile. I'm out seeing Mew tonight so you may need to wait a few days.
... some hot *&$% action in return if you can arrange it mate?
Is fucking ace! Not a dud track on there. 'Lost in Time' is an absolutely beautiful start to an album and it just gets better. The only fault is that there really isn't a stand out track that you have to listen to on repeat like "My Coco" on the first album.
Still its 9/10 easy.
It's really better than the first one !
No potential hit single, but a very good album.
They got all the right moves...and yet something is definately missing for me; they lack a certain je ne c'ais quois (sp?). B-minus.
