Excitement for the new album raised a bit more.
I enjoyed reading that.
and they have deteriorated substantially from Storm Thorgerson days.
I thought the last album was BY FAR the best thing he's ever done, and was easily my favourite album of 2009. Fingers crossed the new one's as good.
That Eero Johannes album is a belter.
A very mediocre album, is that, methinks ('Dust & Water', 'Another World', 'Aeon' all making me cringe frightfully). I think 'Swanlights' puts him right back on track, myself.
Decent review, though; I like the way you write.
This has snatched album of 2010 from Big Boi. Well done that Kevin Barnes.
Just hit after hit after hit, then when it ends all I want to do is play it again.
What a total joke. Then subsequently saying "it is immediately disappointing" - um...you might wanna give it some time then, eh?
This is definitely in my top 5 of the year thus far.
Not a patch on her other two.
It's not like it's going to sell out within a day (or, indeed, at all,) so don't fret.
This makes me a saaaaaaaaaad panda.
Not looking forward to this at all.
The sync's a little bit out. I like the guitar-based beat and the subtlety of the backing track, but it could be coordinated a little better.
My favourite album of 2010 so far. As is said, it's a more cohesive version of the first album; and even that was cracking, so hey - everyone's a winner.
Talk about a sell-out / hypocrite / both (delete as applicable).
<3 Olafur Arnalds :)
Their albums have got progressively stronger, and this one is almost consistently brilliant.
and at decent volume (as instructed by 65dos) and still didn't like it.
I'm not saying the entire album is a write-off, but its predecessors were - in my opinion - far superior.
I was ready to abandon ship after the last one (sorry chaps, but there is no way in hell that it's better than 'The Fall of Math' or 'onetimeforalltime'.) Thankfully this has re-fuelled my love.
By the by, it's going for £5.97 on amazon.co.uk; BARGAIN!
6/10 is also one of the highest marks I've seen this album awarded yet.
Hooray for Olafur Arnalds!
I love both, but definitely think the later one to be stronger, musically and lyrically.
'Release the Stars' was horrible, though. Disappointed me greatly upon its release.
The song, not the cover, natch.
I thought their last album was easily their best. Does 'on form' hark back to 'Noah's Ark' or their debut?
'Up All Night' is alright, and i can't hear the 3rd one. Fingers crossed it's as good as the debut.
I'll be sure to visit this crime-free, scenic "Manchester" you speak of soon.
Which is a dive. They even have confederate flags hanging, and old ladies weave amongst the crowd to collect glasses during the performance. Oddest venue ever, but a COUNTRY mile (do you see what i did there?!)
Greatly looking forward to getting home to hear it.
That with no Scottish date makes me stick a big two fingers up to CocoRosie.
