its This Is My Truth, isnt it?
OR IS IT?
that's the best one.
the nicky wire solo material that has been spoken of
It was dire! Enough said!
Know Your Enemy by a long long way. That album is a disgrace.
Know Your Enemy. Though I haven't heard everything off Lifeblood...worth getting? (I like This is my Truth..)
And I generally disliked the MSPs!
So, maybe the album's worth getting...haven't heard it yet.
From what I've heard, Know Your Enemy can be quite dire in places but at least it's not as numbingly dull as most of This Is My Truth.
has two really good tunes on it, namely Tsunami and If You Tolerate This. Otherwise... (ahem). My g/f, Nic, is chiming in with "what, that Michael Bolton record?" (Ahem, again) That's the one.
But I dunno, MSP's have quite grown on me.
And now I'm thinking I've gotten This Is My Truth mixed up with another one. I don't give MSP much airplay. And still gotta buy Holy Bible.
was basically a watered down version of the album before, which was their post richey lets-make-beer-boy-anthems-with-"meaning" commercial breakthrough.
it did have tolerate this (the first single i ever bought, factfans) and tsunami and you stole the sun.
thinking back, against my better instincts, If You Tolerate this is kinda good in a polished fm rock kinda way. beats the shit out of, say, hard fi. i now feel churlish for this thread.
PMs are fucked up, and i cant type much, but, basically,
Actually, I've been around, albeit not as much. However, I've been practising restraint, and not just posting every little thought. Not out of consideration to you hooligans, but because most of what I'd say I've already said... and since most of ya's can't hardly stomach reading my novelette posts once! I figure I oughta lighten up a little on my presence here.
But thanks to those of you who've missed me even a little bit. It's been like attending my own funeral...only here, on DiS, there're people that actually like me, so - y'know - this is a pleasant surprise.
is fucking gash! The best songs on TIMT are My Little Empire, If You Tolerate This, You Stole The Sun, Ready For Drowning and the really quite ace Black Dog On My Shoulder, in my humble opinion.
Know Your Enemy has some good tunes on it, but is by far the weakest album. Wattsville Blues and Miss Europa - really MSP, what WERE you thinking. Truly embarassing songs.
dreadful... only one i dont own and not even the three pound shelf at fopp can tempt me.....
Holy Bible is a "1" and every nother album they have done is a "0". No shades of gray involved.
im not a huge fan of this is my truth
and most of shitty gold against the soul
Yes. It is.
