The Timbaland tracks are superb.
I really liked the first album when it came out. I still rate Westside and You Got the Style.
It doesn't look too bad for the money.
I've never seen them in a large venue, but judging from comparing clips I've seen with when I saw them at the Forum, they seem quite shit. Also the new songs (on the whole) really aren't that great.
you have shocking taste in music.
is about right from my first couple of listens. I plan to listen to it repeatedly , very loud for next week or two, then I expect I'll get a bit bored of it.
It's too over the top to be completely serious.
cover of the first album. They seem mostly to do what they want, I like that.
And I have no money at the moment. I remember the line up grabbing my attention more last year.
I did that when I first got it. Listened to it a couple of times, thought it was avergae, then left it. Then I went back to it and ended up listening to it constantly for months.
When was this tour announced? I completely missed that...
Clam, Crab, Cockle, Cowrie be all orchestral? That might be interesting.
Is he in The Twang?
want to hear this.
there's not a single band I'd be interested in seeing. No ferry journeys for me next summer.
us beating Tottenham?
that's not what he meant at all.
I don't think any other song I've ever heard has expressed the feeling so well. I get goosebumps listening to it.
'And I shall drive my chariot
Down your streets and cry
'Hey, it's me, I'm dynamite
And I don't know why'
And you shall take me strongly
In your arms again
And I will not remember
That I even felt the pain.
We shall walk and talk
In gardens all misty and wet with rain
And I will never, never, never
Grow so old again.'
It puts most love songs completely to shame. It sounds so sincere.
(Apart from the bit where he spells 'sings' wrong).
I prefer it to Chutes Too Narrow.
Sleeping Lessons is such a perfect opening track.
It was a typo with hilarious* consequences.
*not actually at all hilarious.
as in 'Hove'. as in Brighton & Hove.
what a DiSappointment.
Bamos told me so!
that's fucking amazing.
I have a very funny mental image of The Game snatching the ball from David Beckham's feet, kicking it about 10 foot in the air then running over to the dugout and kicking a chair.
I mean what would the government response be? I'm fully aware of what council tax is for but I don't think it would be as simple as the public sector not being paid. Even if this was the case and all public service workers went on strike, how would this be dealt with?
What would the media response be? If it came to light that there was no way of persuading people to pay it and everyone was in complete agreement, what would the government do about it? I don't see that they would abandon public services. The whole country would stop working. There would be riots, chaos. What would you do if you were PM and this happened?
if literally EVERYONE in the country refused to pay their council tax?
about the Libertines but they don't lack tunes. At least not on the first album. Even the second has some songs of note.
I don't know anyone who owns it. I haven't heard anyone mention it, I haven't seen it advertised much. It hasn't been particularly prominant in record shop displays. The singles haven't been particularly succesful have they?
