the only problem i have with this review is that it uses the word 'ain't'. that word always sounds hollow in reviews, like you're trying too hard.
the rest of it's good, though
..what the hell is 'mandem'? is it a song by jessie j? maybe i should buy the album to find out, yeah?
there's no apostrophe in possessive its. get out of pedants' corner, you have no right to be here.
and you're still wrong now.. you manage to miss the most important aspect of this album, and that is, for want of a less wanky word, its texture. it is a deep, rich and coherent album in ways that no other album i've heard is.
in addition, you are misquoting lyrics all over the place. 'we've got heads on sticks' is not from 'everything', it's from 'kid a'... still you're not as much of a massive cock as mark beaumont, who gave it half a star out of 5 in melody maker in an attempt to be provocative and 'edgy'. what a dick.
(they've run out of sub-editors)
should've been at least an 8. this is an album that unfolds over a good 5-6 listens to really reveal itself - it's ace. even reading the review it reads as if it'll be an 8 or 9, 7 seems a bit low for the praise lavished on it.
i've found it... it's the first track off his new album! fantastic. 'i heard wonders'... fantastic song, bloody glad i've finally found it, 'twas mr holmes all along!
thanks. yes i do indeed have that, some excellent stuff on there but the track he played was a bit like '69 police' but better. it was really pounding and modern-sounding.. ah well, guess i'm destined never to know! sniff sniff
'give out but don't give up' - i can't find this anywhere on the net. is it the right title? i saw the end of a david holmes dj set once and he played an amazing song that i've never been able to find out what it was, i'm hoping it's on this mix album....
to rock action. as does mr cummings, for that matter.
on first listen. also not particularly well-recorded despite pitchfork's assertion of increased production values.. i don't think they have ears.
not a massive fan of that album and i don't know too many mogwai fans who'd put it up there with their best.. i heard some stuff off this the other day on rob da bank's show and have to admit to being a bit bored, which has never happened to me with mogwai before. i hope i was just in a bad mood that day..
that is all
that quote above is going straight to pseud's corner and i am going to make £10 out of this man being such a pretentious cock.
hooray for pretentious cocks
if none of you know what it's actually called? the master and margarita.
it's not about a f&cking pizza for f%ck's sake
did craig become an engineering genius?
it's a bit annoying for us mere mortals, not only are elbow an amazing band but they do it all themselves.
if i didn't like them so much i might call them bastards, but i do, so i won't. lovely fellas.
what days what days? i need to know man, i'm only going on the saturday...
can't wait. tour please too...
they are the only animals known that actively hunt humans as a matter of course... lions etc normally only do it when they get desperate.
good article and all but 'must of'? and plenty of less offensive errors too, notably with speech marks ending and not...
i demand better grammer! (ho ho ho.)
bit generous isn't it?
is a very good word.
i am officially adopting it and may even lay claim to having invented it - just to warn you, like.
well done that man / woman / non-gendered individual.
and the above article is so pretentious yet at the same time contains so many basic grammatical errors (possessive its, anyone?) that it merely serves to highlight what a self-regarding, vacuous piece of nonsense it really is.
rubbish. the gig, on the other hand, was sensational.
'in my ears'... although i like the artwork too so 'eyes' applies. and there is no artwork for this yet, which doesn't help.
my initial thought is that while there are more 'proper songs' on this that are up there with the best of them than there have been in a while, it doesn't hang together as well as an album as either kid a or ok computer.. it seems more a collection of songs than a whole, and if even one of those songs lets it down then the album suffers. whereas in my eyes kid a manages to have treefingers and STILL be an ace album.
is that right? they've been performing as new order i thought, just doing a couple of joy division songs. that's not the same as performing AS joy division.
how does that work then? does the CD jump off your desk and leg it towards the door or something?
i might have to buy it if so.
it's actually over 4 years since radiohead's last album. mogwai's happy songs for happy people was released on the same day and they've done a soundtrack and a full album in the meantime...
... so i have doubts about their future, frankly.
it was a chad kroeger solo effort.
although some more skeptical listeners might think seal's 'kiss from a rose' was a major factor in the 'composition' of this 'song'.
doing 'that' is annoying, isn't it.
what always bothers me most about cocaine (besides the fact it seems to turn people into even more vain and shallow versions of themselves) is the effect buying and using it has on a) our culture and b) the places where it's grown and the people who import it. what kind of angst-ridden left-wing liberalista like kele doesn't take these things into account? his main problem is something useless like 'it's bad for my voice'.
3) i you want to
if you want to read an intelligent, well thought-out criticism of an album, read the review above. but please stay away from this chap, who has not even heard the album he is slagging off...
another interesting reversal was q giving 'room on fire' 5 stars and then, not a year later, asking where it all went wrong with the strokes' 'disappointing' second album... revisionist idiots.
Q quite possibly takes the 'worst magazine in the world today' award. razorlight 5 stars? wank.
... thing is, it wasn't. if i recall correctly nme gave it 9 out of 10, and vox gave it a similarly glowing review...
it was another case of 'we can't afford to review this album badly because our readers won't buy our paper any more', and then revisionists claiming they said it was rubbish all along.
mark beaumont also gave 'kid a' half a star out of 5. twat. that's got nothing to do with this, it just still annoys me.
