Such an unusual yet infectious sound they have.
its an absolute stonker of a tune.
They were shit, worse than Enter Shikari.
Which one would that be? They release about 5 albums a year.
Probably the most amount of 'fun' I've had listening to an album this year. The crunching riffs, the broken english and the silly lyrics, they all add up to a hearty good time.
Can't wait for this. Winning guests as well, Nada Surf and John Roderick will go together like beans and beer.
The second album was awesome, a real progression in the bands sound. Nowt wrong with Longview either! And Morning Runner were brilliant, I'll sorely miss them.
confound you Winehouse
Amy Whinehouse you are a bint
You're in desperate need of a mint
Cos I can smell your whorish breathe
Too harsh to ask for an early death?
I only know he's dead cos someone spoiled the ending of the film for me.
That song is absolutely awful.
The album is pop gold.
Can't wait to get the essay and read up about what the songs mean.
'Back To Earth' was brilliant because of it's hyperventilating, erratic post-punk. But now that style has been binned in favour of plodding, sub-Coldplay indie. I expected so much more. The planned 2006 bootleg version is ten times better.
The album is lush, its a contest between Don't Fear, So Low So High and To The Sky for best song of the album and I still can't decide.
I checked this album out and I'm so glad I did, it's aural bliss.
They are pretty damn risible aren't they.
I missed the last sentence there on the initial read. Egg on my face fo'sho.
Who the fuck is Stabby?
Thats what they are.
releasing their own material some time soon?
They sound like Thom Yorke fronting Modest Mouse yet are more deserving of just a mere comparison. 'Wires & Wool' is one of the best singles I've heard this year, the album should be spiffing stuff.
and I'm still loving it, a giant leap from their debut.
Went back to it two weeks later and was amazed to find myself loving every song, its so concise that not a second is wasted. Terrific pop.
really deserved a 10. Dream pop perfection.
I'll be going to this, I adore both those bands. On a side note, just how many singles have Kubichek! released from their (admitedly great) album?
There's no more milk left guys, onto album number 2.
Far superior band Brinkman released a single last year called Kirsten Dunst. Oooooooooooh, another reason to hate this band!!
Nigh-on masterpiece, a huge step forward from the okay/good debut.
School Of Seven Bells are awesome.
Let's just leave it at that.
'the nominations this year aren't so bad.'
Thats the only entry I'm genuinely happy about, it's such a great album.
this list is utter utter tripe. Arctic Monkeys? AGAIN?! Fuck off, they're shit. Where is TCTC, The Twilight Sad, Cherry Ghost, Fields or Kubichek!?
I really like the new single, it's a rousing little number. Terrific outro as well. Sorry.
I avoided them at first because of all the NME hype but they actually deserves such high plaudits, this is fine pop.
Oh I cannot wait to get my Canadian pop fix from these guys.
Bloody hell, this album barely musters a 6. It's a turgid, repetitive rehashed collection of songs that completely ape Antics, with a pinch of added Danny Elfman on two songs. I love Interpol but seriously, this is silly. Pauk Banks could fart in a cave and all the critics would collectively praise his efforts.
It got a rave review, it deserves to be here.
He's like a Japanese Beck or something.
But I'm checking them out purely because that front cover is gorgeous.
Thats what the Arctic monkeys essentially are...Babyshambles hailing from Yorkshire, i.e. complete fucking dross.
October has never seemed so far away.
I was being sarcastic, its hardly the stuff of taboo to include swear words in songs these days is it.
that 'Smokers Outside The Hospital Doors' got to number 7.
it has naughty words in it. And also because a song this good was so criminally ignored on its first release. Now thats controversy.
I'm glad you were the one to review this terrific album. But no mention of the albums two best songs? 'When Anger Shows' and 'The Racing Rats' really showcase why this band is so special.
The second album is stupendous, if they become one of the biggest bands of the year its only because they deserve to.
Whereas before I chose to ignore them on the basis of the two previous average singles its the sheer windswept class of this song that makes me look forward to their forthcoming lp.
...if you share. Sharing your files is illegal. Sharing is bad, m'kay.
Then you could rip it all you want. Hey presto, bob's your uncle. Swayze.
