How could one brother ditch his own for another band?! When I saw the 'lose a member' headline I automatically assumed it was Garza that left. Very strange, and a shame. But at least they're starting work on the third album, looking forward to that.
But I'm really happy for Take That's comeback success, fair play to them. And Shine isn't shite but I'll tell you which song is, it ryhmes with "booby booby booby boobies".
They're still fucking evil!
who seems to be ecstatic that Ruby is at number 1.
That Mika song or the Kaiser Chiefs effort.
WHO GIVES A FLYING FUCK!
Don't let me down lads!
Space rock at its finest.
Liam isn't as funny as Jim Davidson.
I'm always up for a bit of pirate music.
They are currently 2000 sales ahead of Mika but he's gonna overtake them come Sunday.
Such an undervalued album, I'm the only one who considers it a classic :( The Shins and Klaxons albums are ace aswell.
It's one of the most repetitive albums I've heard. His voice gets headache inducing after only two tracks. 10 out of 10, mercy me.
The only 'dud' on this album is Dive In. Otherwise it's a fantastic album, really brought to life by Genn's passionate delivery. His emoting feels so genuine, he makes Icaurus and I Miss You truly devestating while Ali In The Jungle and People Say are uplifting and inspiring. Comparing them to Keane is plain lazy. Fantastic band, fab album, I hope they make it big this year.
More like five.
I agree with DiS on the new album, it certainly is good stuff. My fav song at the moment is Ghost In The Arcade.
They didn't even give the nation a standard years break from them. They'll be clogging up the music channels and radio stations all over again. Bastards. At least the Kaiser Chiefs had the common courtesy to dissapear for a year or so.
I don't know what else to say apart from Mika sucks and his music sucks.
That is one of the best reviews I've ever read, although I don't entirely agree with it. I've been singing the praises of Make This Your Own everywhere so I won't rave about it much here. Just want to say I've been a fan of TCTC since the release of KUTF and personally, I couldn't ask for a better follow up.
That is all.
even The Rain Band have a myspace page and they split up three years ago.
Raise The Alarm is a tremendous album. However they aren't in anyway new rave.
Contrary to the negative reviews I think Make This Your Own is a fantastic album and the first classic lp of 07. They only got scorned for it because half the album takes on more of a mainstream sound. Oooooooh big woop! Head is a quality song, one of the highlights, terrific choice for next single.
Amid all the chaos and havoc there is a big dollop of fun and charm injected into every song. A strangely feel-good album.
Utterly devoid of any passion, charm, emotion or coherent chorus.
Gimme Gimme Gimme. I want this album bad.
Absolutely fantastic stuff. I hope this next album is even more epic and windscreen.
Makes for glorious listening.
It's plods along contently doesn't it.
I wish that guy would fuck off! Pardon my french.
which John Earls of Planet Sound has labelled as "the first classic lp of 2007". I've heard four tracks from it and so far I agree with him.
Who is that bloke in the middle of the picture? The ghost of Mr Benn.
Then we wouldn't be able to see her face. Ugly as sin.
I was expecting this song to get a really positive review. Imagine my shock when I look down and see the little numbers only highlighted to 1. I swear DiS, you catch me off guard every time.
I can't see how Mika is much worse than Jamie T to be honest.
He sounds just like Lily Allen!
Barriers is tremendous. Possibly the best song I've heard so far this year.
So why can't I immerse myself into anything else from the album? Lord knows I've tried.
Better than Clap Your Hands and Spinto? Oh yes.
Is that Napolean Dynamite on the left of that picture?!
It's an excellent song! It shows the cooper troopers can even pull of an acoustic country-esque track successfully. The fact that its placed before All I See Is You (TCTC's heaviest tune) is genius!
But it's still worthy.
I'm a fan of the four singles released thus far but that song is appalling and the fact that it ends the album is like rubbing salt into the wound.
And it's hardly representative of the new album seeing as how every song sounds completely different to each other. Plus it's like the second worst song on Make This Your Own. Apart from one poor track and this the rest is absolute gold.
...I would say his face is a definite improvement.
Yes I like Keane. That might be because Tom Chaplin doesn't have a voice similar to Spanky from The Little Rascals.
Not a great band/artist(?) by any means but you're always guaranteed some quality tunes with each album.
but in the end I deem it unlistenable. Her voice man...eugh.
