It is fantastic. The joy of Halo is the flexibility with which you can approach each situation aided primarily by your ability to jump. The praise heaped on Halo 4 is entirely justified, this review is not a one off; have a look on Metacritic.
Totally changed my world when I heard it.
Ah come on; its not that bad! You must have been in a terrible mood when you wrote this review! More of a 6/10 surely? Entertaining in the right context.
I would say the main fault of the album is that several themes go under explored in tracks that finish too early to realise them. The song writing, however, is stronger than that in a lot of other electro indie band's offerings. It is a highly moreish concoction too, rewarding repeated listenings.
Not his greatest but a solid 7 in my book. Not sure what the falling out you had was about but there's no need to hold a grudge.
Just because an album is instantly satisfying does not make it a shallow experience. I am a big fan of the modern folk scene and this band seem like a breath of fresh air. The fact that they embrace more conventional pop structures is, dare I say it, exactly the kind of thing that more rambling contemporary acts could do with.
A really pumped up festival sound.
It was a shame she forgot the words to Sawdust and Diamonds but the crowd, bar you it would seem, was completely behind her. Besides she has A LOT of lyrics to remember. Not that I'm defending her due to a massive crush or anything. Oh no, certainly not! Not me.
just pipe down and sit at the back of the class with your pointy hat on. You don't have to listen to him, after all.
Eloquently put! Great album too.
A real grower.
Looking forward to this one. Loved the ep.
Anyone have any idea when the album's out?
The problem is, Mr Reviewer, that you just don't GET it. Its not your fault. Now just pipe down a little and let others enjoy what is essentially an undemanding, fun record.
I've been telt.
Mr Diver may just not like electronic music. Certainly judging by the rest of his reviews.
The more 80's tracks slip too far into the world of homage for me. That Kate Bushy track is excruciating! I think it works best when he sticks to his trademark epic synth soundscapes; that's when this album soars. Still, 7 out of ten!
Ah come on! It doesn't break any new ground but some of the tunes are belters. There are many more irritating bands than these inoffensive aussies. I'd give it a 6
It may not encourage sexism but it certainly wallows in it. As amusing as some of the tracks are in isolation, when viewed as a whole the sentiments on display can come across as a little sinister.
Maybe they're not as misogynist as they seem, and are being terribly clever but I can only really judge them on the finished album. Which is a pleasant, occasionally funny listen that sometimes leaves a bitter taste in the mouth.
