Are you suggesting that Pajo, in 'showing off his sophisticated talents', was actually playing something other than the bass lines of Carlos?? If that were the case, surely it was a detraction. The bass is what holds practically every Interpol song together, and screwing with it would be a very bad thing.
There seems to be a bit of a backlash against Carlos now he has gone. I think he was rock solid, inventive, highly musical, and a bigger part of this band's sound that a lot of people care to recall.
bugger ye, ye bugger!
Just had to get a link to your last Muse related journalistic masterpiece in there didn't you? Guess what? Its still utter shit.
But Terra and the others are right. DiS is falling into the NME trap, where gigs, albums, movies etc are being given to staff to review, where the review is a foregone conclusion. The U2 movie review was the same. Journos wanking their egos online for everyone to see how fucking clever they are.
The U2 review guy was a twat. Kev's stuff is normally good, but this article is neither original (see the U2 one) nor of any use to man nor beast. This is not news, or a review, or a goddamn feature if you want to be pedantic. Its bullshit. If you really disagree, so be it.
So thats what you think of U2. I don't have a problem with that fella.
I do wonder though, if this was any other band (arctic monkeys possibly - seeing as you rate them 9/10?), whether that would change your opinion on the validity of the film, the motivation behind it, or the 'groundbreaking' tag?
Sorry to pick a fight with you on this. I don't mean it personally, but this site is so full of fucking indie scenester snobs who think their throwaway pop bands will save the world, who think they can slate bands that actually did, just because they've made some cash out of it. Its pathetic. So what if U2 release albums worth of drivel nowadays (I actually believe this). Everything they did up to and including Pop stands head and shoulders above the droves of shit being released by talentless morons day in day out right now. How many Kooks songs will people remember in 20 years time?
can get stuffed!
Obviously its not cool to like U2 (but i do, so fucking what). But releasing a concert film in this format is getting a lot of respect from people in this industry. They talk about it setting new standards and redefining the 'concert film' format. That, in my book, makes it groundbreaking. Okay?
What a completely and utterly shit review of what is probably a groundbreaking release.
Why oh why do 'journalists' bother reviewing output by bands that they clearly hate. Said output's fate is already decided.
given that you haven't said a bad thing about them.
Saw them in bristol this week, and what you wrote pretty much sums it up nicely. good job sir.
they have not. yet again (!) let down by a mumbling, meandering slab of AOR in the new record, save for about three songs, this included. someone should tell grohl that its fine to do this stuff, but foos records are not the place for it. start a fucken side project for that shit!
I still bought tix for november though.
What should I do afterwards, oh londoners??
Not an actual review either - just someone trying to write something smart. And you think corgan's got an ego problem?
DiS is just getting worse and worse every day - in fact, more and more like NME. Smart ass reviews that don't actually review anything.
mayonaise - okay, that counts. soma too. I am one is not exactly a standout pumpkins track is it, and hes put his name to what, ten more, in the pumpkins back catalogue of well over 100 released tracks?
i'm not trying to say Iha is worthless, far from it, just that the core of the pumpkins is and always has been billy and jimmy.
i don't get how people don't get so upset about other bands that continue or reform, without original members. why the fuck wasn't there uproar about the who headlining glastonburty with only 2 founding members playing.
fucking same-old corgan bashing, thats what is is.
this is a great review of a shitty review. whay can't people get the fact that the pumpkins always has been Billy and Jimmy. No-one else added anything else, bar some shitty b-sides.
Great song, decent album. I for one am happy. The rest of you can get stuffed!!!
i'm a spelling tard
The album version is somewhat gashed by this. I shall be creating my own version of puzzle, with the radio edit of this single, and no folding stars nor 'A Whole Child Ago'. As a massive biffy fan for years, the latter is heartbreaking - my wife said it sounds like mcfly. Shes right, and it hurts.
got all pent up, vented, and spelt the mans name wrong. cock i am.
darcy and iha did nothing in the pumpkins that couldn't be done by x or y or z session musician. The only personalities in their music were corgan and chamberlain. If either one were missing, then this WOULD be a farce.
with a passion. Am I the only one???
And for the record, I've been a big fan since the beginning, so this isn't some usual anti-muse-slating.
cash car star is one of the greatest things they EVER recorded, fo sure.
check amazon.COM, and get yourself an all regions dvd player
oh yea, and burn me a copy when you've got it, would ya?
what a song
the ending makes me shiver
and stunning live. Catch them at The Hub in Cheltenham, on June 30th, y'all
just do it!
What he said. To add anything is wasteful.
That era, that album, that pure aggression. Fucking love it!
.....this is beautiful. Terrible albums, but a great great live band
......that a large part of Bono's quoted rhetoric here is twaddle, and massively up his own arse, but Bono IS doing more for just about everything in the world than most of you festering, whinging shitbergs on here. If you're sick of him and his activities, do as he does and get out there and shout about it. That's unlikely though, as you're all too busy being cool.
Offspring are utter shite (in my book), but gold stars for that one!!
.........I'm sure I've seen some mention, quite recently, of another band intending to release an album called Chinese Democracy. Dunno who it was, but I think it's a great idea, just to piss Axl off, or give him an excuse to stop pretending at last.
Don't get me wrong though - AfD is a fantastic record IMO.
