I’m finding it near impossible to listen to anything else.


#262

I can’t believe I spent so much time trying to defend pitchfork in the music reviews thread. This review isn’t a total hatchet job, but it does smack of them just not getting it.


#263

Ian Cohen though. Disregard anything that knobhead says.


#264

Steer clear of the Observer review as well!


#265

I didn’t know that. Helpful bit of context there.


#266

Lol good job p4k has been irrelevant for years


#267

It’s like he’s never heard of a band having more than one singer. “Ringo sings on some songs! Is John really even in The Beatles any more??”


#268

Also Mike has pretty much always been the main songwriter, this is just the first time where Damian wasn’t involved


#269

The 1-2 punch of Mechanical Bull and Accelerate is unbelievably good.


#270

Ah phew this new one is great, listened through a few times today.

I wasn’t really that bowled over by DCTL as a whole despite some amazing tracks (having loved everything previously) and didn’t give Glass Boys much of a chance, worth revisiting?


#271

Still not picked this up yet. Fully psyched for it reading through this thread.


#272

Had some Fucked Up on the old iPod Classic for the best part of a decade and never really bothered to give them a listen, but thanks to you excitable lot I went and bought this a couple of days ago without having heard a note of the music.

Owe you all a pint tbh.


#273

I would say yes regarding Glass Boys, it’s basically a trimmed down version of them focussing on big guitars (and I guess more of a hardcore vibe), it’s also relatively short by their standard so I still revisit when I want a a quick fix of no frills fucked up goodness


#274

I going to drive by post this thread every time the record hits me (And I’m able to actually do an internet).
I nearly just cried when Love is an Island came round.
This is a perfect fucking album.
Also, I may have had a few beers.


#275

This album is legit one of the best things ive ever heard


#276

Wait… you know what this is?

This is the album Arcade Fire should’ve gone on to make, but they didn’t, so Fucked Up stepped in and provided the goods.


#277

Owen Pallett bridging the gap we didn’t know was gaping.


#278

AOTY innit. So ambitious and full of energy and never, ever dull which, for an 82 minute album is a fucking staggering achievement. I love them. SO EXCITED for The Garage show.


#279

I like this but I’m nowhere near as in love with it as all you guys. It’s just a bit too much, y’know? I wish they didn’t feel the need to make all their records so damn long. A one hour banger with the fat trimmed would be near perfect.

Gonna give it a few more listens and quietly hope I can get on the bandwagon. It’s a nice looking bandwagon. I want in.


#280

Genuine q, where is the fat on this record for you?
