Are bloody awful.
Designated people you said now was the time...
was laughing at something.
Anyone want a vieniese whirl?
that wasn't supposed to happen.
Well actually, they're not THAT bad but they are pretty.....meh.
And even if it's supposed to be 'ironic' that haircut is still fucking atrocious and whatshisface needs a slap.
Another one of the boring, overhyped, fashionable bands that have no real passion in their songs, they just sing about any old bollocks!
And their music....is just bland!
They'll be gone in a couple of years once they recieve their money from the record company and the NME stop writing about them.
How can you say their music is BLAND, for fuck's sake?
Have you heard the melody to Apply Some Pressure?
As an indie pop band, they have absolutely everything you need: 'kick ass' hooks, super tight rhythm section and they're great live.
SO WHAT if they'll be gone in two years? I don't care about when I'm 17, I just want some decent music to listen to NOW.
i hate admitting this, but i agree with wrighty. I still think you're an evil twat though!
No way, if that is 'DECENT' music, then I'm the fucking pope (and just for the record, I'm not the pope *ahem* )
The music is shit, it relies on being catchy! Its music which you will get bored of after a couple of listens, if you have come across real music!
And yes the music is bland, it doesn't do anything innovative, and the whole albums the same!
Isn't being 'catchy' sort of the point of a 3 minute pop song?
My home recordings of myself banging a washing-up bowl with a dead ferret aren't catchy or bland, does that make them Essential Listening?
Maximo Park are never going to be The World's Best Band, but they were still quite fun to dance to the other night...
what I'm saying is, I like my music to have a bit more depth! Great lyrics (Maximo park are lacking), and songs that you can come back to and find something new every time (which maximo park are lacking).
The music lacks variation, and becomes boring quickly! Then again, if you believe the NME, then they are the best band in the world!!!
posted more or less exactly the reply I abondoned a few minutes ago.
You can't question your point then. If you prefer music with a bit more depth, that's fine, there's nothing wrong with that.
The thing is, you're not supposed to expect it from a band like Maximo Park. They're just pop.
their songs catchy.
unnecessary statements, don't you?
Try swapping all the bands in DiS board arguments for, i dunno, colours or types of food and you'll see how ridiculous it is.
This whole thing is just horribly pretentious. Only you know how to define what is 'real' music and you make judgements about people based on the proximity of their taste to it.
All of your descriptions of preference are throwaway and meaningless. You probably describe albums as being life affirming.
Thats six ,shit i'm out of t-shirts. Anybody else who wants to join has to do so naked.
i'llnot be buying their album
their singer has shit hair
get on your knees.
I declare this the Maximo Park ala toupe hate club!
is this going to hurt?
stop attacking me with a pizza slicer!
*quickly zips up trousers*
OH MY DAYS
You are the one with the weapon! I was just a bit hot.
So unzip those bloody trousers.
Not easy. The boys are back in the barracks.
you better believe it
Wide legged robot armed dancing on national television is just plain wrong.
on the keyboard that gets my goat.
Which one is the ugly cunt, i forget?
With mulled wine... this stuff is sneaky, I will articulate worthwhile critism.
absolutely outstanding. I have not heard such as comprehensive brilliant album in a long time. Im sick of reading a thread that simply says a band isnt very good. Imagine if we all started threads about stuff we didnt like.......its pathetic, if its not your taste fair enought but stop fucking starting needless threads. cunts.
why are you contributing to needless threads then!!! If its your taste fair enough but stop fucking posting in the maximo park 'haters' thread!
The point i was making was that people shouldnt start meaningless threads that dont say anything but '(bands name) are shit'. Then someone else says 'yes they are'. I contributed to it because it boils my piss
Indeed...he rated 1 for joy division, and 10 for the thrills!
You, my friend, clearly have taste.
You too, have taste!
"We got one !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
tend to make comments like the one i just did because on websites such as this one the bands i like get so much bashing
Don't believe everything you read in the NME!
..question someone else's ability to make their own assesments about music?
Do you <i>like</i> Joy Division? Or do you hear them differently because they're officially brilliant?
Quit complaining they just made it on to the DiS podcast pilot. Believe me this is the start of the backlash. You just wait and see what Marilyn has planned.
I'm glad you have so much faith in me, although it has made me nervous.
May I just add that I'm right in the middle of a fucking dissertation due in the 3rd. Drownedinsound is something to help me through it. I don't have to write a fucking review on here just to get my opinion across. I certainly don't feel like writing a bloody essay about why I hate them, and I shouldn't have to.
the guy with a photo of a cricket bat on his profile.
Exclusively for wankers who think they're clever.
I think you're being ludicrously self indulgent there. Nobody has requested that you write an essay about why you hate Maximo Park ... just because somebody has taken you up on one silly glib remark. You don't NEED to elaborate on your stated opinion - but really, there was never any point in stating it, was there?
Incidentally, Maximo Park are fairly excellent. I can prove it objectively. Wrote a dissertation on it and everything.
Pot, kettle, black. What was YOUR point to this statement?
As for self-indulgence, I can only apologise.
s*. Exclusively for wankerS*.
I wasn't being totally serious, I think there is only an implicit value judgement in my post whereas yours was explicit. You are assuming I don't like Godspeed. Perhaps I've just met an overwhelming number of their fans who were wankers who thought they were clever?
As it is, I was probably joking. People should just like and listen to what they want with a slight awareness of the irrational biases they have towards certain artists. Do I like the Chalets for the depth ???
with JonnieMakem and wrightylew.
errr, the singer has NOT got shit hair.
but not this discussion.
but I think The Coast is Always Changing and Apply Some Pressure are top class and I find threads like this a little disheartening. Obviously people might not like them but I can't really see how a band like Maximo Park can inspire such vitriol. Actually, I met the lead singer of My Vitriol last night. Go me!
i'm a sucker for the 'Graffiti' chorus. So...
There was a 'fun' erruption of hatred for Maximo Park in a different thread earlier...The Pipettes thread. It wasn't supposed to be a serious thread, but no it's disheartning because people are disheartened by it.
to spoil your fun...
i better not mention that i like the Pipettes too...
We both share a love for Half Man Half Biscuit...:D
how anyone WOULDN'T have a love for HMHB...
i even got 'Trouble Over Bridgewater' for Christmas :D
I had Il fucking Divo from a 'close' relative. Il fucking Divo! If anyone wants the bloody thing, they can have it for free as long as they pay for the postage.
Il Divo! What did they say when they gave it? "Oh here's some strapping lads who make a wonderful sound and seeing how you like music..."
Then again I still see Il Divo as Devo.
I'm still waiting for Il Divo to cover Jocko Homo.
quite polite in person, I gladly accepted it. I don't know what was worse, that or a handmade handkerchief...that had someone else's name embroideried on it in pink letters. Please excuse the spelling, I am struggling...
Thank you for being gentle with me...
a bitch in the day :) How are you still awake Thommo?
all the pixels. Or that marzipan i ate earlier. How are you still awake?
construction on sexual identity in the 1980s and how Clause 28 made the homosexual identity a 'corrupt' identity. Bleh bleh bleh bleh...Plus I'm normally awake at this time, I just don't have internet access (thank god) in my house in London.
Ew marzipan...left over xmas cake?
What keeps me awake is my natural body clock, tiredness will kick in in about an hour.
And I just eat a big pork pie :-D
I miss that TV series. "There's been a Murrrrrder".
conjure up a sense of familiarity...you know familiarity and community, hand in hand...
well thank you for the effort anyway
then again i've not got to write a dissertation about it. And yes internet connection does often equal rambly posting addiction or something. Yyyyyyep.
Yum, Xmas cake. No brandy though, wassthatabout?
Wales without brandy in your cake, you would burn at the stakes...
I choose the subject for my dissertation, I'm just fed up of arguing about why I hate Thatcherism...and Clause 28 bleh bleh bleh I'm at it again...
..Thatcherism is to blame for the perception of homosexuality as "corrupt"? what do you mean by corrupt anyway? and what kind of subject allows you to write a dissertation like that?
who wants to drive home and under the limit!
Well I'm used to some very alcohol soaked christmas cakes. The more brandy the better!
they should have got you a Dukla Prague away kit instead.
I got 'Four Lads Who Shook The Wirral' as part of my leaving present from my old job!
Just Il fucking Divo...four slimeballs in suits.
luckily it had the receipt inside...
You didn't get offended. I know I bloody did.
IS maximo anyway? i've looked it up and all i've got is a facility wizard. that's crap.
some nature park thing in America or something like that
