Ok this sounds better on second go/with headphones.
Is it streaming somewhere or just leak?
Good driving album too. I think it's growing on me as well.
I looked for a stream and didn't find one, i think the leak is all that's available right now.
"A Violent Noise" is an early favorite.
i just hit play. honestly not feeling the first song much at all
this mostly just washed over me. need to spend more time with it but i was expecting something more
Performance is so beautiful.
The "A Violent Noise" / "Performance" / "Replica" stretch is my favorite right now. Four listens in and I'm beginning to like the album.
Listened three times. I will never voluntarily play a song from this album again. Bland vocals and pointlessly vague lyrics.
Which is a shame because the lyrics on the debut are stellar
"On Hold" is gorgeous
If you listen to "Performance" and don't feel things, there's something very wrong
Step forward and take a bow Jamie. He's really came to the fore to help elevate this. Everything I love about this so far are Jamie touches. Romy and Oliver sound better too... still their distinctive selves.
I don't think there's anything vague about the lyrics here. It's pretty obvious what "On Hold" or "Performance" are about. If anything, I'd say these are the most transparent lyrics they've written.
I recently rediscovered this band and have been spinning the first album a lot this past week. Funny enough, I had thought that before about 9 days ago I had never listened to it in its entirety. However when I put it on I realized that I knew and recognized every song in some capacity. Somewhere down the line I forgot I ever listened to it. Which is weird, because I think it's a great album. I don't think that has ever happened to me before. Haha. I'm excited to hear the new one tomorrow.
This is easily the least vague they've ever been.
So, is this more of the same from them? I was never all that into them before, will this change anything?
This album is pretty good. Their debut will probably always be my favourite though.
Did you like their tracks on In Colour? If yes I think you should give it a shot.
After first listen, I really really like this. There was no track that floored me like "Angels" did, but I think this will end up being my favorite xx album front to back.
I haven't listened to any of their other stuff but I really dig this. There is so much drama in their sound it's great.
I Dare You is my early favorite.
I'd pay good money to have Oliver Sim whisper encouraging words into my ear all day.
Pretty good so far, but I thought the first two songs were kinda weak.
When I say the lyrics are vague, I don't mean that I can't understand what the song is about. I mean that they're lacking in detail.
Two bonus tracks floating around now. Not too sure about Season's Run, but I like Naive more than most of the album.
