but a disappointment after What a Pleasure and the Shallow/Lessons single
love that Cos-Ber-Zam remix. the rest is all a bit bloopy and derivative. 7/10 sounds about right. probs would have plumped for a 6/10 meself
it's pretty great. the most i have enjoyed a new record since, well, Sin & Lostness. Should be pretty big.
need some NOISE in my life again
think this is far more enjoyable and cohesive than D. and Fits is probably my favourite after Last Day.
great album. THE BRINGER OF EVERYTHING IS HERE TO STAY
the riff in 'Golfers' is rather special
absolutely bloody love Sports.
What we need next is The Lost Rivers to announce an album and i'll be the happiest man ever
bit disappointing but still a few good tunes. mostly in the first half. i absolutely bloody love Money.
this is superb news
nice one MrScagden. I pretty much bum EITS though so you could have said it sounds turd and I wouldn't care
didn't think it would be possible to follow the album with something equally as great.
always look forward to a lukowski review
thought the second one was bobbins. Might give this one a spin.
been listening to it fairly constantly since summer. Possibly my favourite album this year (certainly top 10)
Really good album. Like a slightly less misanthropic A Place To Bury Strangers. I think there are quite a few areas for improvement but it's a cracking start.
glad to see my worries were unfounded. Have to disagree on it being a challenging listen though. I think it's one of the most accessible records released this year!
and no-one can stop me ahahahaha
Fuck me those things are creepy.
birmingham is sold out and has been for awhile which is a bit of a bummer
the album is really rather good
certainly it is a little too long, and there are some tracks that really don't do it for me, such as the go-getter and howlin' for you. But thankfully they have succeeded once again in producing a record that pushes the envelope far enough, without throwing away the soul of their music which defines their sound. It isn't a total triumph, and the same as with Attack & Release I feel like they are constantly trying to experiment with their music, rather than picking something and going with it. Maybe after having a chance to ruminate on this album and all the other projects they have done in the past 2 years they may produce the assured, definitive album that they have always threatened to make.
the first cuts from the album on their myspace sound very promising. I'm not sure I got the memo on Howl though. I think its their finest effort since the debut, non?
the single is cracking. good news indeed :)
very excited. foals are good. etc etc
Also: this is the best feature in all of DiSworld. merci buckets
half of the songs are great, but half of them are annoying and twee, and this is one of the annoying ones.
really very impressed. certainly more than i could have hoped for only 11 days into the new year. the two central tracks of 'red lights' moving into the title track really pull the album together. excellent stuff
I have nothing more to add.
fingers crossed it doesn't sound like a mess instead
yay i win
from their blogs on myspace it looked like they were really worried about him. excellent! c'mon Chi!
