I enjoyed it very much
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Drive - great film, great soundtrack. Tasty.
Inner City Pressure...
...and it's beautifully crafted! I listened to the album on NPR stream a few times teh other day and it sounded great - can't wait to fully digest it!
Does anyone know if by buying the album/manual edition, you get full free access to all associated Apps or do you still have to download the free 'mother app' and then pay for additional bits??
this album very much!
I'm really enjoying this record!
As always. Incredible band!!!
However, re. Surfer Blood - why would you go to visit Surfer Blood in California, they're form West Palm Beach, Florida!
... just feel that DMST are getting missed out of the equation somewhat and wanted to redress the balance a bit.
Interestingly, most of the reviews and press for this record talk about it revealing the roots of Broken Social Scene and don't mention Charles's other (and in my opinion far superior) band DO MAKE SAY THINK. To my ears, the K.C. Accidental material is far more reminiscent of the Do Makes than BSS and I recommend it highly to any DMST fan. Conversely, if you like this, check out Do Make Say Think!
I'm not a big fan of OLTA in comparison to TOTBL and Antics(although OLTA certainly had several really great moments!) but this new one pleases me much more. Seems to be a grower - songwriting feels a lot more 'substantial' than OLTA and the new album seems to have a really nice flow and thematic thread. Looking forward to digesting it properly when it comes out!
And really enjoyed it. Thought it had a really nice dark edge that was missing from Myth Takes (which I really enjoyed but thought had too much of a 'funk' influence compared to their first 2 records, both of which I love)... On the first few listens I think this record harks back a lottle bit to the sound of their debut in terms of its slightly stipped-back feel, it sounds nice and lean. Think I'm gonna prefer this to Myth Takes and look forward to getting the record in my mitts to fully digest!
That part in the middle where they rip-off Nirvana's 'Stay Away' is pretty awful, no?
I love this album - it make sme feel disorientated, macarbre, bizarre and spooked! LOVE IT!!!!
Really intense and wonderful!!!! Love it.
For me, Bright Lights is their strongest collection of songs and my favourite album of theirs in terms of sonics/atmosphere so I welcome a return to these realms... however, I'd be disappointed with the new record if it's simply a pale imitation of former glories... it's a very fine line. It'll all depend on the quality of the songwriting and performance/recording so I'm really looking forward to hearing what they've come up with!

It just looks like Mr Vedder is struggling to comprehend yet is in ecstatic about where he is and what's going on... nice.
The redux versions (remixed and remastered by B o'B) is incredible!! It's like he's taken a wet blanket off of my speakers!!! A load of reverb has been removed, it's been cleaned up and it's much more clean, crisp and articulate - you can really hear what they're playing and it sounds much more urgent, raw and passionate - great job - it's really breathed new life intyo an album I love. Hurrah!
I like this and I think Mr Spearin is marvellous! Now, please go and make another Do Makes record... please.
I think we can all say that this review is terrible and the album is actually fantastic!
Hell Yes. Promise of Love is one of my favourite records! Beautiful.
played the bass in Liars, Aaron Hemphill being the guitarist. The bass was pretty important on the first record though I suppose...
No Chinese Democracy?!?!?
review. great facts and accuracy! I was up in th gods so couldn't hear what the hecklers were saying so thanks for enlightening me! Also, I was blown away by how quiet the audience were throughout the whole evening - I felt bad about the ice in my drink clinking when I took a swig!!! Great show. Hope Alan's OK.
"December!? There's no such track on Young Liars, I think you may be referring to 'Blind' perhaps? Call Stephen Malkmus because I think you need a fact checkin' cuz!!!!
but I already have tkts for Low and it's gonna be a Special Christmas show and they're likely to play stuff from the Christmas mini-album which is special... shame.
... London date clashes with Low's "Christmas" gig! DRAT!!
Love that bit after ATD-I finish One Armed Scissor and Robbie Williams goes "Can me mate have his chair back?" - chief.
I'm going to the Tufnell Park show. Supercool!
0.2 out of 10...
Bradford Cox singing the main vocal on Agorophobia... it's Lockett!
This record is great... but I prefer Cryptograms.
