Couldn't agree more.
This review is a fucking joke.
stuffed with so many hyperboles. Far, FAR too overexciteable.
Yes, no one likes Cast, but this is garbage jorunalism. I'm ashamed that DiS has sunk to this level to be honest.
Come on, get the album name right. It's only one of the greatest albums ever written.
Absolutely spot on.
Did The Sunset Tree do nothing for you? (!)
Also no mention of Estate Sale Sign in this review - surely one of the best songs he's penned in years. A clattering, snarling masterpiece.
Thanks though Dan!
This is a terrible album created by a bunch of old men desperate to cash in on the influence generated by the music they created in their youth. I mean, it mostly sounds like a bad tribute act playing Entertainment! songs. Gill's guitar sounds rubbish, the vocals feel tired and forced and the production is just weird in places.
I have every respect for the band who produced Entertainment! and Solid Gold. I have no respect for the band who produced this.
I miss these silly stories. More please!
or does Sufjan just look like a massive hipster in this video?
Just all the suburbs surrounding the city centre.
you've massively underestimated the size of Nottingham. Yeah, the population within the old tight city boundaries is about 250-300,000 but the wider Nottingham urban area has a population of about 667,000, comparable to the Sheffield urban area. If we're talking about Manchester, then the population within the tight City of Manchester boundaries is about 480,000. But when we talk about Manchester we actually talk about Greater Manchester, which has a population of 2.2 million and is, yeah, a lot bigger than Notts. Just sayin.
because the review would suggest a higher final score. No biggie, just seems a bit odd.
That would be pretty good. This is just shit.
What happened to that band I used to love, the band who created perfect angular pop songs which were obviously crafted with a lot of time and love? This crap could be written by anyone. Sigh.
The bits where the drums and bass stop briefly and it's just a second or two of a riffing guitar creshendo coupled with Avey singing are almost euphoric.
To be honest the whole album comes close to this. I immediately feel happier whenever I listen to it. It should really be a controlled substance...
It's really not that interesting. It's simple and shallow, but in an entirely different way to The Great Escape and Parklife. Compared to 13 and Blur, Think Tank is a huge step backwards. Also, we should probably all remember that Graham's solo stuff was actually quite good up until that awful Freakin' Out song. What a fucking awful song. What a fucking awful album.
