good? bad? gad? bood? badd?
tell me. i need to know.
love them, Picaresque is a masterpiece, but all their albums are worth a listen
Get Picaresque, my favourite album of 05. Huge, epic, bombastic etc... The other two albums aren't as good, but Picaresque is near perfect to my ears.
but a bit overrated.
Statements like "Picaresque is a masterpiece" speak for themselves.It is merely a good album from a bit of a lean year.
what you like really
last week. I've given it a few listens and think it's pretty good.
There's a kinda folkyness to it - especially his voice...but generally the album consists of well crafted indie-pop songs.
And no it wasn't because it was a slow year - it's because it's a majestic album.
Fantastic live too.
that they done just write songs, but they tell storys, mostly about pirates and chimley sweeps. the lyrics are really well crafted
see The Mariner's Revenge Song
Possibly one of my all time favourite songs.
like Neutral Milk Hotel or have i got my wires crossed?
has the same kind of jeff mangum-esque nasal voice, but that's about where the similarities end really.
i saw them live a few months ago and thought they were ok. nothing too exciting, like. their records might be omg amazing though, i just don't have any of them.
is a good album with some great songs on it. 16 Military Wives, Engine Driver and the absolutely amazing On The Bus Mall are the highlights. I'm unconvinced by a couple of tracks but on the whole it's good stuff.
