it starts off fine, but then i just think im listening to a shins record, which is annoying.
although i have to agree with bakerstreet, this album seemed disjointed to me too. demon days was one of those records that could be put on in any situation or surrounding, whereas this just doesnt do the same for me. this is after 4 or 5 listens too (usually where i realise if i like an album or not). its a 7 for me.
i'm upset that wild beasts weren't in the DiS top 5....
remind of "juicy" by Biggie.
Amazing album though.
great review too. kudos.
i've heard they're treating it like an opera with an intermission and everything. maybe there will be an ice cream lady....
it really is a great album. It's one of those albums where you sit down and soak it in. it will be great to see how they convey the album live. they really could make it in to a full on show....
and im loving it. a sleeper hit for 2009 me thinks.
sufjans song at the end of the first cd is epic. love it.
I agree with some of that. However, i am totally shocked The Week That Was was not included. It's definitely one of my favourite albums of the year....
ALL IGNORED? why?
between this art work and Jeff Buckley's Grace?
its utterly amazing.
i just listened to 1.01 mins of the first song on myspace and vomited. a worthy review....
makes me want to listen to them. have i missed something here? why have i never heard of this?
i didnt realise this was out. have been looking forward to this.
i'm loving this album.
i enjoyed this review.
flying up for this.
Flights were too much though. If Band of Horses had made it there, then i would have.
you realise this is The Zutons, right?!
Shame that the song is DROSS.
he's really enjoying his retirement init.
plaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace yooooooooouuuuuuurrrrrrrrr haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnndsssssssss,
on myyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy hooooooooooooooope!
they should have just stuck with releasing an EP for now, and taking more time to make the album.
I enjoyed the EP, but have a feeling the album will be a let down.
Wilco "Sky Blue Sky" not feature in this list. one of the best albums i've listened to in the past few years...
neither Bon Iver, nor Frightened Rabbit are mention above.....
* Bon Iver
* Frightened Rabbit
* No Age
* Vampire Weekend
* Fleet Foxes
* My Morning Jacket
* The Wave Pictures
have had the album for a while. Highly recommended.
really better that the new My Morning Jacket album? I think not.
isn't mind blowing by any means, but it is certainly not a 4/10.
I'm getting more and more frustrated at that consistency of ratings in the reviews on this site.
been a lot of 8's and 9's going on lately. I'm not so sure.
i was thinking that this might be taking place next to the king alfred....
re: this album. I am in total agreement.
One of the best live acts around too.
that thinks this is a good album?
If you compare it to the other tosh that has been release this year, then i think it at least deserves a 7.
I'm a big MMJ fan, so maybe i'm biased. Looking forward to seeing them play live in septemeber.
forward to this one. Good read.
Eagles may soar high, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.
choice. Not too heavy, not too messy.
Nice read too. muchas thankos
eat in the end? I don't have time to read the whole thing right now....
....for greatness in 2008. spotted them a while back. music how it was meant to be made.
'One Day Like This' = EPIC
