The album definitely deserves the rating afforded to it by DiS. They're a good band with tight songs, and the fact that biggest criticism anyone can lay on them is that they sound derivative is a pretty good achievement for them. I'd rather these guys got sucessful than that Florence and the Machines or whatever the frig she's called (yet another "Look at me, I'm an indie popstar!" that crawled from the doldrums of despair).
and a potentially dangerous, option but for the fact that this government is very prone to giving an inch and taking a mile.
A more constructive solution would be to start encouraging the majors to examine the advantages of incorporating the massive benefits that such websites you mention present, and incorporating these into their business models in a sustainable, balanced and forward-thinking approach; a classic case of if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.
The major labels have shown themselves on regular occasions to be sceptical, doubtful and ultimately suspicious of the models of the websites. What needs to be done is convincing the labels to converge; otherwise, this situation will worsen.
And I agree with pretty much everything you say.
Why? Cuz they're shit.
to this whole "review/article", why?
Their voices are annoying, their lyrics are annoying, I annoy myself that I allow myself to get annoyed at being annoyed at this "band". Turner has proven that anyone can polish a turd and sell it.
the Last Shadow Puppets will not only get a nomination but also win :-( .
If this happens, I will give up on music all together. Seriously.
Made fool of myself! I didn't know, I'm not that clued up on KOL. I didn't realise they were big enough to fill an arena. Oh well, now I know!
Are KOL that big yet?
That riff is amazing! Lurve it!
Why is the reviewer's view more "professional", and therefore vaild, than mine, my friend's or anyone else view I might happen to read.
Again, utter bollocks.
This has confirmed what I've always said... reviews are redundant. Nobody cares about them. If they truly did, then our music charts (for whatever value they hold) would look very different.
People have got wise to the fact that one person's opinion shouldn't be the consensus. That's why majority reviews, like they have on Amazon, are much better to gauge an overall feeling.
Adieu the review, it was good while it lasted.
where does Peaches Geldoff fit into all of this?
Paul McCartney's "Temporary Secretary".
nearly slipped and fell over as he ran toward the crowd. Lol.
now there's an understatement.
Everything about them is wrong, wrong, wrong.
and frightenin' bands I've heard in a long time.
pretty much sums up her devotion to music... can't even be arsed to remember the lyrics to just one song. Okay, I know Elvis couldn't sometimes, but she ain't no Elvis.
She's a beligerant, nepotistic bitch.
Please, please, please flop
to Brett Anderson? *sheds little tear*
at Glasto on TV, and then afterwards Mark Radcliffe (I think) enthused that their performance "... reminded me of Prince."
*Massive. Stunned. Silence.*
NME's website have him quoted as saying "She did a great act".
No. She. Fucking. Didn't.
She can't sing. She can't dance. She can't perform. She can't play guitar. She was a frickin' mess.
She can write a good chyoon though!
"review" as in, we don't like the band and therefore will appear all indie-cool by rating it a 4/10 at best before we've even listened to it.
goose pimpley like a big pimpley goose. Lurve it.
"f*cking blow me away". It may suprise me a little, or slightly take me aback, but "f*cking blow me away"...? Not likely.
was it actually a really good song!?
ginger man complex.
He needs help.
I know what I mean, I know you know I know what I mean, and you know you're just being flippant and pedantic for the sake of it. But I see you chose to ignore the bit where I say "I really don't mind his dim view of the album as that's his opinion". Anyways, I will explain myself a bit, so here goes...
My point is that by being dissmissive, vindictive and, frankly, immature, he's trying to appear witty and clued-up, though comes across as an indier-than-thou smart-arse.
All I'm saying is that I'd rather something a bit more authoratitive and a bit less churlish. There's no need, for instance, to go on about his friend John. It adds nothing.
How can someone call themselves a music reviewer when they knock out pretentious crap like this.
I really don't mind his dim view of the album as that's his opinion. But as a reviewer, he's failed, no, massively failed, in his duty to back his opinions up with any information or mention relating to the music.
A third rate hack who can just fuck off.
which ones are male and which ones are female
Beck I have seen, though wouldn't go as far as calling him a performer as such in the way Mercury and Prince are, you dig? Though good call with Flamming Lips (below), hadn't thought about them!
there's no showmen or actual performers anymore in music, everyone takes themselves so seriously *sigh*.
Freddie Mercury at LiveAid or Prince's "Sign 'O' the Times" DVD are essential viewing to see real performers in action.
