Low, John Vanderslice and Dinosaur Jr are four albums I loved that that I can think of off the top of my head not on there...
Well done Rakes frontman for completely missing the point.
...I wonder if Lars Ulrich has just discovered that the cameraman downloaded a Metallica album illegally?
Fopp was great though, the only place that I could buy cheap CDs that were actually good. Also the only place where I didn't have to listen to absolute tripe while I was shopping too...
...don't you think you've missed the boat slightly, considering there was a large gathering of them for two days only a week and a half ago?
Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison and Jeff Lynne.
Now find something to do.
...apart from the fact that I can't see the Hold Steady... as they clash with the unmissable Smashing Pumpkins.
And I like the Super Furry Animals.
...who has only heard the singles from 1997 onwards and probably seen Motorcycle Emptiness on Q Music TV or something. I don't see how anyone that has listened to the Holy Bible for example, can have this view.
If the Manics tried to make another Holy Bible now (kinda like they tried with Know Your Enemy), then they would be quite rightly laughed at. This is probably the best album of their 'mature' period.
but meh, each to their own...
I actually liked Everything Must Go, but This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours, is indeed their worst album in my opinion...
Underdogs is embarrassing though I will give you that.
...is that Your Love Alone Is Not Enough really does stand out from the rest of the album and is excellent, but I'm quite liking the title track, The Second Great Depression, Rendition and Imperial Bodybags.
...Send Away The Tigers (the new Manics Album) being the best Manics album since Everything Must Go.
Check the first reply ;)
I know the demos are on the internet so I was meaning an official release.
...a possible Basement II release later?
Their best album since Everything Must Go in my opinion.
Although that wasn't hard to be honest...
Just don't go straight for his face, your hand will be sucked in and my never see the light of day again!
And for the record, both songs were shit.
...their cover of Suicide Is Painless is ace
Bar "The Love Of Richard Nixon" Lifeblood is much better than people gave it credit for, nowhere near their best, but still better than the two albums before it. 1985 was the best song they had done in a while.
As for this song I agree with the general consensus here, lyrically it is embarrassing (Bradfield really should start taking over more here) but musically not bad, however it does not fill me with hope for the album.
However, the proper single, with the woman from the Cardigans is excellent.
...did the Elliott Smith covers?
Don't you just love fanboys/fangirls?
Part of why they're into music is to spread a message (arguably a bit of a badly written one by Mr. Wire) so if they still wanted to do that after Richey went, fair play to 'em.
Plus Everything Must Go is very, very good so good thing they still did carry on.
*not my opinion*
...it is well and truly shit.
Lars Ulrich can go fuck himself.
That was in reply to loque's comment.
Claiming he would move to Switzerland if Labour got elected.
They still haven't learned their lesson.
5 stars for fucking Razorlight.
That's all i will say on the matter.
Flowers has finally gotten my goat. Yes I tolerated his slaggings off of various bands, mainly cos they were shit bands (Except the Stills and other bands that I may have not heard about him slagging,)
BUT to critisise Thom Yorke for not writing pop songs and then saying that one of the WORST songs I have ever heard by a supposedly credible (in the eyes of the mainstream media) band 'just a great song'. If that's the kind of steaming shit he wants Radiohead to write he can fuck off. Now.
Anyway, is it just me or was the promotion for the second album really bad? I mean when their debut came out, I remember not really being able to get away from them for a few months, and then hardly anyone even knows they have a second album.
Anyway good luck to them, one of the best bands I have ever seen live.
What do I get?
Anyway what else can I say, this site is awesome and personally for me revolutionised the way I think about music, so er... keep up the good work!
is too good for Razorlight. End Of.
...and it does have a sound limiter, it is a 3rd gen though so it may have changed.
Dave Grohl worked as a session drummer at some point. If that counts.
...more hooky than anything Flowers has written.
The cutting out of the white noise certainly does them favours.
I see Pitchfork predictably got the knives out...
thats why they call it a Hall Of Fame
...but what is the difference between Rap and Hip-Hop these days?
How the fuck are Rap, Hip-Hop and RnB different categories?
