Glassjaw

I imagine they will but i hope its a good lineup. Last time they supported Coheed and Cambria and theyre now touring us with the used (!)


#122

I think I was busy at the time of the Coheed and Cambria show, I definitely hope they play with a good band next time round.


#123

YOU TAKE THAT BACK. COHEED ARE FANTASTIC


#124

*were


#125

i left half way during them, couldnt bear it

This album has gone straight into the best-of-year lists for most Glassjaw fans I know. I always found GJ to be a frustrating band; I love Worship & Tribute but can take or leave just about everything else they’ve done, and they’ve been patchy at best.

That said, I’ve seen the current lineup twice and they’re undeniably a technically fantastic band (no surprise that the bass playing on this record is amazing) but I can’t work out if this album isn’t that good, or if it’s just not for me. This thread has made me feel like maybe I’m not going crazy after all.


#127

The Colour Before The Sun fucking rips, and they’re still absolutely spot-on live.


#128

I didn’t slag off Coheed! Perhaps I should add that I was thinking about going to their show with Glassjaw, but unfortunately I was occupied with something else


#129

aah, my bad. Good ol’ internet tone

I’m actually growing to like this more as well but I think it’s through an unwillingness to not like a Glassjaw album more than anything else. That said I do like new white extremity, shira, closer, my conscience weighs a ton and cut and run; although the latter is cut far too short and is not an album closer for me. I don’t mind golgotha, bibleland 6 and strange hours (at a push) either. The rest I could live without. All in all I think there’s just about enough decent material here for an EP. Maybe they should’ve stuck with that format… and next time get a producer or some sort of third party to bring a bit more focus and objectivity to the process


#131

I wasn’t really impressed by this when it came out, but it’s actually really grown on me. It’s no Everything… but it’s good.


#132

They are playing the Brixton Academy on the 18th August, which puts them in the country at the right time for an even t near me a week later…


#133

ooooooh shiiiiiiit


#134

Struggling to think of a worse band/venue combo than Glassjaw @ Brixton (purely talking about sound quality, obvs)


#135

thought they were really drab when i saw them headline there in 2007. I’ve seen them thrice since; twice as supports and once mid-afternoon in a tent at Reading and enjoyed each of those a lot more.


#136

It’s a completely different band now, and the current lineup is fucking great. Insane rhythm section But Brixton just eats heavy bands, let alone a band with such brutal yet nuanced guitar work.


#137

that reading set looked amazing


#138

Was it on TV?


#139

i think so maybe? i saw it on youtube


#140

Wonderful. As I’m sure I’ve posted numerous times before, i really enjoyed that set with my bro, bt felt the crowd weren’t really into the idea of hearing stuff they’d probably not given enough of a chance live.
