are much more favourable than those of this reviewer. Fully prepared to shit myself on first listen to this. EXCITED.
any of those things. I think they're a bit great. Not sure about this Coldplay chat. Enjoyed the review though.
As an aside this is the 2nd time on this site it's been suggested a pop band is like Coldplay but better, when they're absolutely not. EE are great but not similar. The other was about Fun - We Are Young which claimed it is the song Coldplay wish they could write. That's utter utter horse shit. I'm not aware of any Coldplay song as bad as that. I digress.
was not surely their 4th album. But after research I am told that progress.reform is an ep. Always felt like an album to me. No matter. Excited for this new material!!
I don't doubt the cast record deserves a low score. I'll never hear it though so maybe not. Who cares? Pretty much no DiS reader I'd wager.
Why bother reviewing this record at all? All I can take from this review is that Dan Lucas is most likely a prick.
yup! sonos please :D
I don't agree with it. The Rihanna song is most unpleasant (well the vocal anyway, the music is quite good) and I really like UFO.
After the blinding opening 4 tracks I have to agree that it doesn't flow as an album. I don't think Major Minus needed an inclusion on the album. It was fine as every teardrops b-side.
I personally would give it at least a 7.
that nobody in Scotland reads this website. Or that Loch Lomond might be considered to be from England. Both options are stupid. So I read no further.
It's track 9. The verison with Ian Brown came later and it's the worst thing ever.
I guess is "wet" in that the lyrics are overwhelmingly soppy but it's so hard to care when the melody on it is sublime. It's better than pumped up kicks. As is Helena Beat.
and claiming it for yourself these days? apparently you can. I'm going to start a band and call it Nirvanas.
(a little part of me hoped to see Hey Giles! featured on this but a big part of me knew that wasn't going to happen)
country feedback and e-bow the letter then I have a boner.
due to 2 previous disappointments. i'm excited now though!
doesn't make any sense.
are a bit of a miss as well. they're technically from ayr but still. i guess idlewild are an edinburgh band.
the only was this album is anything less than an 8 is if they put the wrong cd in the case.
9 out of 10 for me.
especially when the review is great, but I believe this is a 9. 7 is harsh.
i'm going to buy their record.
and that all makes perfect sense. it's just i had gone from the paramore review (i didn't read it though, just looked at the score. naughty) to this one and this getting a lower score bewildered me a little.
i'd take a beta band type career from them, cos i'm not sure they'll make another. monies and all that.
it's a shame you aren't as enthralled with this as the debut. for me forget the night ahead is even better, but i'm not looking at it as subjectively.
but i wasn't really expecting anything less from them now. le sigh. hopefully this foo fighters phase is all a big trick to make lots of money, get lots of fans and then BAM! release the true follow up to Vertigo of Bliss and we'll all have a good old laugh and they'll poke us in the ribs and giggle "we had you going though didn't we?!!"
and agree approaching it like a blinkered fanboy would be pointless. but approaching it so that it'll only get a high score (relative to other albums by other bands) if they make THE BEST ALBUM OF ALL TIME COS THEIR DEBUT WAS SO GOOD is equally as pointless.
i seem to have become 'that guy' who moans about a good review simply because he doesn't agree with the score. but i'll take that on the chin and stand by my points. or point.
i REALLY like this new album. but i also liked their first two.
paramores new album is better than the twilight sads. sure the reviews are written by different people but none the less that is this sites broadcast opinion. Paramores new album is better than the twilight sads.
excuse me while i shed a large single tear of dissapointment.
ps i like paramore (dont tell anyone) but come the fuck on.
you spelt 10/10 wrong at the bottom.
meant to say, good list!
oceansize, mew, belle and sebastian, arab strap, longwave, daft punk, coldplay, tool, the weakerthans. i'm probs missing someone dead important (to me anyway), but yeah oceansize and belle and sebastian fo sho.
the entire worlds general population prefer the mainstream not just scotland. thats why it's the fucking mainstream (i presume thats what you meant by appalling music).
also mr reviewer you made some ludicrously bad choices in bands. maximo park over idlewild?! franz over yeah yeah yeahs?! kings of leon over crystal castles (or nick cave)?! and thats was only friday!!
in the complete dark as well? they're bound to bum a chord or note or completely miss a keyboard and fall over instead here or there
is a bit dissapointing, i mean it's good but no where near as strong as i thought it would be. they're tons worse without giles on vocals.
to agree with dom. okay band = no chance of making it. okay band + fit frontwoman = loads of attention/hype/big support slots/more sales and fans.
6/10 is totally right. Gave it a spin, kind of liked it but went back to the new Appleseed Cast album instead (cos it's AWESOME), then in a few months I'll quite like this album.
And Worlds Apart was ace, I'm glad thats noted here.
I read the score for this as a 7/10!!!!
on a list that we voted on is fucking ludicrous. please stop.
that'll write a book of half truths about you Is Easy.
death cab were fucking amazing, despite playing the most horrendous of venues. As an older fan I really appreciate the addition of early material. They played title track in edinburgh and while it fell flat amongst the majority present, it made me very happy.
it better be good!
was horrendous. if they fix that it might just make it.
i want my money back
the post above was meant to reply to the bit about timmy reading on the boards that bob will play the first 3 nights.
that was me and i was taking the piss. did you not see the bit about flying pigs being the warm up act?
for me! but i was on the ball. they were gone by 09:36am.
this is going to be phenomenal!
anyone thats seen their recent b-sides and rarities shows will confirm this.
seeing them in edinburgh on saturday for the 5925695645th time. still as excited as a kid at christmas for it.
how times have changed.
the kids who rocked yesterday will pop tomorrow.
truly awesome band. can't wait to hear this!
