    God I haven't heard WT for years, I remember going to see them at the Brixton Academy a good fifteen years ago. In fact it was my first gig I ever went too and absolutely loved it.

    EDIT: it was the Heart of Everything Tour in 2007.

    Given Shore a couple of listens and I think the best way to describe it is the perfect album for a Sunday afternoon drive through the countryside. It's very soothing and easy to listen to. I'd give it a solid 3.5/5

    I would agree with this. Listened to it yesterday and it is great Sunday afternoon listening. It's not one i'd go back to again and again, but it was very pleasant. The only thing I would say is it's quite same-y. I'd like to see them try something a bit different every now and then!

    I've not really followed Fleet Foxes latest stuff, but quite enjoyed this. Favourite song was Sunblind.

    Good song . In fact it is one of those "pension" songs which will earn the songwriter
    a nice little amount each year
     
  6. I don't think I've heard this in about 30 years! The song itself is pretty dismal, but the instrumental bit is cracking.

    I’ll just finish that off for you..

    DA NA NA NA NA NA NA!
    DA NA! DA NA! NA NA NA!
    DA! NA! NA! NA! NA! NA! NA! BLAAAANG!

    That last ‘Blaaaang’ is an E major btw.

    I agree, there wasn't much of a change between songs and seemed to blend into one at times. I quite liked Quiet Air the most but I think its because the tempo changes towards the end.

    I'm a fan of Fleet Foxes so happy to have an excuse to listen to Shore again!

    One of those songs whose content undermines the sentiment of the lyrics...

    it’s on Apple musics so will have a listen , how life has changed I started when I was young with a Walkman, dodgy orange headphones and could only carry 1 or 2 albums, we now have aféese to virtually any music you can think off on a device 1/4 the size of an old Walkman . I also think the dodgy orange headphones (with no noise limiter) coupled with a love of heavy metal has given me tinnitus

    Let me know when you've all listened to Shore and your thoughts on it - who wants to suggest the next album!?

    Spirit of Eden by Talk Talk is one of the best albums ever made.

  19. Great band but quite a miserable/bleak album i thought. Preferred the one before. Of course he died last year at age 64 .
     
  20. Listened as much as I could.
    Zzzzz.
    They may no longer be fashionable but I really like The Killers new album. Much better than their last 2 offerings These 2 tracks are great examples - loads of energy esp towards the end as the second one builds. Start the first one from 55 secs to cut out the boring acting before song starts...

    Saw them at the Brixton Academy a few years ago because my daughter wanted to see them and I wasn't letting her go there on her own! Great show, very theatrical too with some video stuff going on at the start on a screen behind the stage. She came with me to see the Cult on their Love 25th anniversary tour, but then I had to go and see Sigur Ros and that was a bit tedious

    Miserableness and bleakness are all we have left, its where truth is found.

    I've no idea!

    Just checked the album I have and it's from 2004 on There's A Riot Goin' On records. None of the liner notes are in English but the singer is called Justine.
    I bought it on the strength of a single called 'Hey Gravity' and I probably played the LP twice. 'Revolution' is often on any playlist I make though.

    Having a listen to 'Hey Gravity' as I type and if I'd heard that for the first time today I wouldn't have bought the album.

    I quite liked it although it did feel like it blurred into one song at first listen. Probably songs that would slip better into a playlist. I’ve put ‘featherweight’ on a playlist because it’s got a lovely feel to it.

    I’d completely forgotten about them to be honest, I liking an album of their’s, possibly their first one about 10 years ago.

    Corr what an introduction to music! I think mine was Discovery by Daft Punk which was released the same year.

    SdA is one of the few vocalists I've heard who sounds as good live as on studio albums. She is a phenomenally talented singer.

    I'm a big fan of SdA. I'd put her and Cristina Scabbia from Lacuna coil in my top five favourite female vocalists for sure.

    I’ve been watching Jools Holland for about three decades now and it’s a tribute to his playing that boogie-woogie still hasn’t grown on me.

    Tago Mago by Can.
     
  35. Is that the same Can who were recording in the mid 70s? I bought the single "I want more" in about 1975 when I was 12. "Everybody plays a game......."
