Like you said it wasn't perfect in some ways (energy, motivation, setlist perhaps), but that didn't matter because it fucking rocked anyway.
Looking forward to this arriving in the post soon... wish I had gone to the launch at Plastic People now!
Love The Antlers write up too. Like you, it didn't really click for me, and I think I only gave it about 3 listens before deciding it wasn't all that. Going to take you up on your recommendation and give it some quality headphones time and see if I change my mind :)
I've been listening to it non-stop since I got it on Monday, and although it might not be as good as Contact! Contact! (which i think is seriously under-rated) its still a solid 8 at least. Sure they might not be pushing any boundaries especially, but its just so fun and catchy and generally great :D Plus they are always so good live, and lovely guys to boot!
It reads like it was translated from another language, and the formatting is all over the shop.
Havent heard the album, so I can't comment on that, but sort it out guys :)
Was at both of those london hotflush nights last month - lovely stuff :D
You at James Blake on friday?
good to see Diver back reviewing on DiS too! :D
who is right?
sounds like i'm going to need to check out some Sepalcure!
can you also recommend some FaltyDL?
and great artwork too!
and sounds like a great album. Will probably buy it on the strength of this alone :)
can't wait for the barbican show. still very curious to see if they dress up the Britten orchestra in pointy hats :D
chilling lyrics too
do you reckon they'll get the Britten orchestra to dress up in pointy hats and all too?
made me want to check out Sleep, and older Om, so i guess thats a success?
And I grew up in a village over the hill from Teignmouth (Stokeingteignhead). Havent seen Muse in a while but they have been one of my favourite bands since I have had favourite bands. Also my oldest and best friend still lives there and is also a big Muse fan, and it would be amazing to go back home and see them with him - especially on the seafront in Teignmouth!
but Glass Handed Kites was 2005, not 2007. just in case the beeb actually check these things :P
and i already have tickets for one (Efterklang). also Los Camp are playing that night, and something else too i'm sure.
still pretty fun mind
i think he was 2000th then.
and how are you planning on telling who the 2000th was? it changes all the time as people between 1-1999 stop following etc
do they have a copyright on the crucifix shape???
metal fans eh?
like i do EVERY DAY
21 minutes of joy
well deserved too. definitely one of my favourites of this year
so no, it didn't occur to me
i would happily have ads thrown at me left right and centre if the people that make this site what it is could continue doing what they do so well
does this mean the adverts will be less annoying, or are they staying?
I love JoFo :D
but then i never really got all the pant-creaming over No Age and TNV anyway.
What? No Los Camp!? Thats probably my favourite british album released this year. Also Youthmovies, but then maybe you can't include them?
hence why i thought you could promote redjetson to 'headline' status. not that it makes much difference i suppose at rota what time you are on.
seeing as how it is their last and all
and i was gobsmacked how much of a rip-off some of their songs were. they were still pretty decent, but a few were just daylight robbery pure and simple.
i didn't mind paying £9 or whatever, but to then do this? its fucking over the real fans who bought tickets in advance and rewarding those who sat on the fence and didn't really want to go in the first place.
i just bought about 10 at £9 each from ticketweb for me and my coursemates who are all coming down. fuck.
I have tried cutting this out and 'keeping it' several times now on various computers at work, but every time the glass on the monitor just shatters and my colleages are getting increasingly frustrated at me. Please can you offer more precise directions on how we may 'cut this out' and therefore 'keep it'.
its no 'Slam Dunk Tha Funk' - thats for sure.
I don't get why these guys called themselves 5ive - it was a shitty name to begin with and has horrible connotations...
i meant its amazing how few people actually went out and bought it.
i didn't realise the download/physical ratio was that skewed!
