Oo, good choice

The biggest 5 I can give them. Wonderful gry with more imagination than about 10 other bands combined.
More thoughts after I have breakfast.

Other than a couple of tracks, just never clicked for me. 3 i think.

Think this is the first one I couldn’t hum you a single entry of the songs poll

Could hum god! Show me magic but as a hum it wpuld be a bit of a dirge im afraid

I quite liked the singles I heard and one of my mates really likes them so saw them at Glastonbury. Christ it went on for ages

I’m also never a fan of bands who want to show off how quirky they are

Ice Hockey Hair is missing from the singles

tend to binge on them and then go through phases where i’m not that fussed
rings and phantom power are both great records though. radiator too but don’t like the production as much
bangers / 5

Definition of 4/5 for me.

Good lads but not my all time fave when it comes to the catalogue. Still, the good times are really good.

Ah shit, probably because it’s listed as an EP.

This thread is going to upset me. :slightly_frowning_face:

A question of interpretation I guess, but never really got this from them. Definitely they employee some weird touches on tunes that otherwise might be more m.o.r, but I think that’s just their interest in music outside the rock/pop world showing.

Cityscape Skybaby is their best song, those harmonies are so good! No one seems to talk about it
