Athlete - Vehicles and Animals


#1

Can’t believe it is 14 years old. It was a great album. Great tunes.
Not the most fashionable band. But really puts a smile on your face.


#2

Shit, shit band


#3

#CHORUS


#4

You’ve got the style , westside and El Salvador are great tunes.
Athlete were very much of that time though along with Hard-Fi, Guillemots, Keane, The Feeling just to name a few.


#5

you’ve just listed a load of shite, quite different sounding bands there (The first Guillemots album is still dece though)


#6

Wires makes me properly well up, I’m not ashamed to say.


#7

Isn’t the singer guy like a pop songwriter now?

Hated the band hated his voice most


#8

Holy shit I hated this band.


#9

Remember going to asda in atafford once and they played wires on repeat the whole time i was in there. A bleak time in my life…


#10

Imagine being so joyless that you don’t like listening to wires by athlete on repeat in ASDA (am I doing this right?)


#11

I still give the first album a spin now and again

Every track is a great pop song with some nice ideas in there


#12

I agree the aforementioned were shit bands I should have included Kaiser chiefs on that list too.
I still like athletes debut album though. Don’t hold that against me. It’s a guilty pleasure.


#13

Liked Vehicles and Animals a lot at the time. Second one was utter shit and I’m guessing subsequent albums have followed that trajectory.


#14

I still listen to Athlete. Liked the second album a lot too, and the third had a few good songs. I didn’t exactly dislike the fourth, but it didn’t connect like any of the others.
