is excellent. *hides in fear of mass backlash*
and even she hates it. Not a good sign.
OMM gave it 1 out of 5. The implication was that it is the worst album ever made.
is one of the dullest things i've ever ever heard. ever
Whenever I hear Embrace I always get a mental image of a slowly moving mountain of custard or other gelatinous substance, enveloping entire cities, dooming the citizenry to a tasty, but fatal case of death.
Any psychologists able to figure this out?
You clearly fancy your mother.
Or something. The popularity of Embrace scares me a little bit.
I've always quite liked Embrace, but yeah, the new album is rubbish.
controversy on DiS. It is infact one of my many hobbies. My favourite was 'why does everyone on DiS hate Keane thread?' oh the laughs
When people make threads like that, 99% of all the replies consist of:
'Because the singer has a horrible little moon face and he's fat etc. etc.'
If you're all so bothered about image in music, surely you must hate Brainlove's 'project'?
to do with image. It has everything to do with the album being a bit rubbish.
Obviously Chris Martin didn't help them out with any knocked off Coldplay c-sides this time.
And I liked the last album, it wasn't that bad at all.
( if I had any DiS credibility, now it's gone...)
Haven't heard the new album but the new single is a bit boring !
The review isn't exactly objective though...
it's because the guy from Embrace can't sing, but he REALLY tries. And they write rubbish MOR songs. And terrible lyrics.
But i still like them !!!
agree. I think Embrace are naff, but people do still tend to focus on irrelevant features of bands they slag off.
People like thom-fa. 18, and he thinks he's got an infinite knowledge and authority on music.
This would be correct. If it had any foundation.
You could go back through my whole history of posting on here and not find a single comment slagging of a band for anything other than their music.
That's because anyone who's heard more than 6 bands doesn't need to justify or explain what's shit about embrace. It's kind of obvious.
But very boring....
They will also be the ones recording the "official England World Cup song for The FA"...
BUT IT ISN'T.
MOR, overblown, anthem-by-numbers, repetitive indie-lite.
I love most of what they've done, however.
Personal taste - innit great?
to me, they are the kind of band that when put a cd of theirs on...you immediately get distracted then before you know it, the cd's finished and you don't remember a thing...
