I know nothing about this band.
Are they shit?
they have several moments of greatness, and many moments of goodness.
i think 'infinity land' is their best album, although it's a bone of contention on here.
they are like a 90s grungey thing, but with occasional spazzy time-signatures. the vocals range from quiet balladeering to the screams of a skinned cat.
There are moments when they're really good, but then ther's others when they bore me a bit.
But the people who like them, really REALLY like them and get all fanatic about it.
probably one of my favourite bands. I love they way their songs change part way through, it sounds interesting rather than prog and boring or whatever. Check them out. I can't really recommend you an album coz I love all three.
please check them out. they are almost never boring. all three albums are worth having, but maybe the second one 'the vertigo of bliss' is a good place to start as for me it is very definitive of their sound (not to say it's the best, though it's my favourite at the moment). If you like that you are likely to enjoy Infinity Land and fairly likely to enjoy Blackened Sky.
They are quite hard to get on with live if you haven't ever heard any songs before.
but i pretty much agree with guntrip. some utterly astounding bits, and generally a really great band. great playing and vocal harmonising and they rock like beasts and then do weirdbutengaging stuff. some cheesey ballads tho.
because they aren't seen as "cool" to like
vertigo of bliss is my favourite biffy album, legend has it they recorded it in a day.
i thought they were cool. who says they aren't cool?
not that it matters of course of course.
they are awesome, buy their albums now!
vetrigo of bliss is my fave, seen em 4 times live now and they are ace
undecided on the new stuff though, recently saw them in sheffield and it was...erm...different
People who like Biffy tend to like them far too much.
Not to say they're not good though.
