Anyone know what they gave the new Primal Scream album?
I for one think it's shit.
"OMG they've taken a lot of drugs and they sound like The Rolling Stones 8/10".
i think Country Girl is shit, aye. Can't be bothered with the rest of it.
I don't like 'Country Girl' but it's the best on on the album. Fucking boring as hell. 'Give Out But Don't Give Up 2' basically... Everything I feared it would be....
Glad I caught them live after Evil Heat, and not this shit.
got a 6.
I bought the mag.
Shame on me...
reckon the nme would fold if they couldn't give out 7's or 8's again.
they're far too safe in their reviewing and their ambigious language means they can come back to an album they gave a 6 a few months later and proclaim that they knew it was going to be brilliant and make them succesful.
7/10 is like "it's ok, you might like it, might not, it's primal scream so more than a six, but I don't really get how good or bad it is so not an eight".
CRAP. Commit yourself!
or 7/10 is what it's worth.
I'm not exactly one to stick up for the NME, but their review seems pretty much in line with all the other ones I've read for the new Scream record...
hav't read this review, my comment was more general.
and i predict spot on for this review too.
works on 2 levels. On the one hand it is the most preposterous tosh they have ever done, like someone taking the piss out of their previous 'Rocks' era stuff - which was itself monumentally dumb.
On the other hand, if you were really drunk at a party and were happy to make a prat of yourself, it's quite fun.
So a guilty pleasure, then.
what they gave towers of london yet?
