three out of five
thats time i trust a free paper i find lying on the floor
against all its faults i find the music section of the metro to actually be pretty spot on.
i havnt heard the new BBS, and the 'paper doesn't really effect me getting it, but still the reviews are usually accurate, despite being under about 150 words each.
it reveiewed Power by Q and not U about 2 months before it was released. It liked it a lot as well.
Shame about the rest of the paper...
on a Monday to see what they're saying about albums I'm supposed to listen to but some of their reviews are crap like their arctic monkeys one that didn't really review the album at all. I noticed the BSS one, I thought they said it was too noodly or something. I ignored it in the main. I thought that album had already come out though?
i just don't think the guy listened to it enough yet
i rememebr that review.
mentioned the Arcade Fire and how BSS were "overindulgent" in most parts of this album.
and how they bought on new members taking them to some crazily high number.
although it came out in north america last year.
to be fair it is pretty noodly and overblown but since when do those have to be bad things?
I really like shoreline and Ibi.
based on a couple of weeks of listening to it and 'you forgot it in people'. You forgot it in people is better.
but this one is more than a compilation of misfires with a few hidden gems like the review says
id give it at least 4
it's definitely more than that. Three is pretty good in my book.
it sort of is 3 out of 5. A few great songs but it doesn't hold together well and it meanders badly at times. You Forgot is 5 star material on the other hand.
I'd give it a 4 at least, even a 4.5 if I was feeling nice that paricular day.
