...arrived today. Great packaging - I can't wait to read the graphic novel and short story.
...oh and to listen to the album too.
so I am very excited to hear this. I didn't even realise it was this close to release.
yes even better than Juan Martin.
By the way, was I the only one who detected a huge chunk of sarcasm in buynikesshoes_09's post?
that there has never been a Conservative councillor elected here in Manchester. Makes me proud.
by any chance? Or is that too edgy for you?
but I also agree that they probably won't have another quality album in them. I hope they surprise us all though.
I was suprised just how good it is.
or a damn lot worse? Discuss.
Excellent replacement though.
really enjoyed reading that. I am hopeful that the distinctly average track on this album will grow on me and make it a more rounded listen.
Some really nice songs on there (Factory, Way Back Home and Evening Kitchen), but some pretty average ones too.
Still looking forward to seeing them live again next month. Always worth hearing Funeral and Monsters if nothing else.
of an excellent record. Perhaps my favourite of the year so far.
that I could change my mind. Might be nice to have a TNP grower.
that it is the only album of theirs that I have been dissapointed with
I think this is their most dissapointing album to date.
when I interviewed them last year. They said they get that a lot, which surprised me.
Anyway the chorus of this reminds me a little of Smells Like Teen Spirit.
111 points for Wild Beasts?
but for me Foreign Born's 'Person to Person' was far more impressive. One of my top three albums of 2009.
Not bad, but not that great either.
I'll be waiting a little longer for another great band from my city it seems. It's certainly been a while.
the book is great but I didn't find it particularly sad. Well, maybe that bit where he makes that guy strip off his clothes...that was very sad actually.
Anyway great review and I really hope this film does the book justice.
I am already concerned about how much his wife is going to play a part in the film. I am sure Charleze Theron hasn't been drafted in to do one short scene. I also hope they don't fill it with action scenes because the book has very little action at all.
I'll find out soon I guess.
Is better than Funeral.
and will be saying so in my own review.
I do like yours though as it's well written and clearly just your honest opinion.
you're a cock, you're a cock.
9/10 for me. One of 2009's very best for sure.
Jared posting his violent plans was particularly silly...for many obvious reasons.
