xiu xiu. um yeah and how do they differ?
Fabulous Muscles has better and more focused songs, it's much more cohesive and the lyrics are sharper and more powerful. La Foret is still good but a few of the songs are just sort of non-entities and the lyrics are incredibly vague, whereas the ones on FM really hit you. I wouldn't say there's a weak track on FM.
ive got fabulous muscles and was curious about la foret. musically how do they differ, darker, lighter,beatier? and the new one air force is fucking great aswell.
But Knife Play beats both of them.
la foret has not gripped me.
better than la foret but still I was walking to work thinking how nice and summery it was, Summery! Xiu Xiu! it just doesn't kick me in the face like old xiu xiu
i think Fabulous muscle is easier to get into , but La Foret is a more mature album, that song Clover is incredible, and Bog People.
La Foret is about just as good as fabulous muscles, just much less pop-ish. It definately takes much longer to appreciate but I listen to it much more now than fabulous muscles. It's a grower. A Promise is still the best one though.
I have not completely made up my mind about the air force yet. It's definately really good, that's for sure. Must listen to it 20 more times...
summery tune for xiu xiu. its great.
about "life and live" the live cd they/he did ...
thats pretty cool, really intimate and harrowing.
it took a couple weeks to realise it after doing a review up of it, but La Foret isnt that great.
