I think Splitting the Atom is great. The only weak track is the Guy Garvey one.
And I loved 100th Window, it's a fantastic album.
Did surprise me somewhat.
This is a stunning album. I can't stop listening to it. With every listen something new opens itself up to you. Gorgeous production and hilarious lyrics. Album of the year so far.
I wouldn't say it's 2/10 but it's pretty dull. The second wasn't up to much either, but the first album is pretty much perfect for what it is.
I might actually burst.
Put a donk on it.
Best thing to listen to in the dark by miles. And in the light.
It's the ultimate album for when you're driving in the small hours and want to make yourself really paranoid.
Either way it was a beautiful moment.
Album of the year so far for me (well, that and Fever Ray, time will tell which sticks most).
Absolutely stunning record, yet another success for Asthmatic Kitty.
Album of the year so far. Perfect.
is it really happening?
Can get a bit cheesy sounding at times, but for the most part excellent. I agree with the review, they're ones to watch in the future for sure.
Well Murray, you've managed it twice in a row now so well done.
The new album is a piece of shit, and he really is a pretentious tosser- fuck_this_band, this interview doesn't even show him up as much of one, in comparison to what he's normally like.
I think- I didn't know Foals at the time but I'm pretty sure they played Balloons.
But never bothered signing up.
DiS 3.0 has been the best so far.
But shall certainly try to get a Volcano! ticket on the door.
from the list, Three and Limbo, Panto, didn't even make the top five. :(
But still has some great tracks. 7/10 is about right. 'Jungle Drum' is awful and I have to skip it every time it's on. 'Gun' and 'Dead Ducks' are the highlights.
And Yeasayer, obviously. Sunday was the best day all-round.
Hi Ryan Adams! Would you like a cup of tea?
Avenged Sevenfold did, mind.
Yeasayer were brilliant, just a shame they only got to play 4 songs. I took two friends along with me and they left after the first track, stupid berks.
Holy Fuck were good too but the crowd was mostly dead, which was a shame. The sound at Reading never helped and it certainly didn't help win my friends over as much as a normal Holy Fuck live performance would.
As long as no one behind the scenes has had their fingers burnt too much.
Glad The Quietus is staying.
It did seem like everything was expanding a little too quickly.
Ridiculously pretentious song titles as always, they wouldn't be the same without them.
Seems like forever since Ten Silver Drops, very much looking forward to this.
But dear god, what pretentious pricks;
Fucking hell I swear this band have had about 30 different members, they must be so difficult to work with.
Listening to the new track now... thought the last album was shit but No Cities Left is one of my favourites...
This would be nice.
It wouldn't suprise me.
I don't think a KOL album has gone by without at least one STI reference.
of putting all three of their biggest hits first on the album. Tsk.
but my favourite track is 'the first'
I've been listening to 'No One Does It Like You' for nearly a year now, and it's great, but now they go and decide it's called 'No One Does It'.
DO THESE PEOPLE NOT HAVE ANY CONSIDERATION FOR LAST.FM USERS?
DAMN THEM TO HELL.
I like it. It's not incredible but it's really really good.
'Walls' is ace.
What a review... listening to the MySpace tracks has convinced me to purchase this, sounds fantastic.
I will actually cry my eyes out with happiness.
Really, he is.
I hope this doesn't affect the release of his 4th album... it probably will. Pah!
Still, should be interesting to see two of my favourite artists collaborating before my favourite artist plays.
But will have to book tickets anyway. Then they'll probably announce more dates for somewhere convenient and I'll be scuppered. Pah.
Need to get my hands on some tickets...
Will be seeing Portishead, Bjork and these in a fortnight if I do, holy shit yes.
the one they played at Glastonbury? If so it was the worst thing I've ever heard. And I love Guillemots. :(
Or whatever name they had for the album?
I think that's self-explanatory. It would have been 'Razorlight' but apparently that's not in the dictionary.
