The Cribs - Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever TOUR


#141

bit late to the party here but i’ve been rinsing Men’s Needs, New Fellas and For all my Sisters the last week or so

great band


#142

Can’t believe the new record is out on Friday!! So hyped!


#143

Happy new Cribs day everyone. I will be sure to deliver the definitive opinion on the album by the end of the day.


#144

started it, but not in the mood atm for that sound, too hungover. will listen later.

been hammering them lately, and love the Weezer pop stuff from FAMS


#145

Yeah Weezer are my favourite band so For All My Sisters is heaven for me


#146

Total first impression: pretty typical Cribs album - just a fun listen overall with a lot of strong tracks. No really towering stand-out track for me yet, but Give Good Time, In Your Palace, Dendrophobia, and Rainbow Ridge are probably the ones that made the biggest impression.

I think I rate it slightly below For All My Sisters, Brazen Bull, and Men’s Needs just because it’s a bit safer, but you can hear a bit of a '90’s hardcore/punk influence in places, which I like. Partisan in particular reminds me a bit of No Pocky era Superchunk.


#147

dreamt last night I walked past Ryan Jarman on the stairs in Zone in Wakefield


#148

It’s a decent album full of good songs, but on first impressions it just feels middle gear all the way through


#149

i agree with this. It sums up a lot of the good albums this year. Well made, good songs, nothing special (an album that is 8/10 or above but still what they do best) and it will not be in any end of year lists.

(See Father John Misty, Everything Everything, Ulrika Spacek, Mac DeMarco, Gorillaz & Soulwax for similar doing the job well but not being memorable albums.)


#150

When you know it started life as an E.P. you can’t help but wonder if it should have stayed an E.P.


#151

I didn’t know this, but yeah now I’m thinking the same thing.


#152


#153

Nice idea this, will be ace to see them at the Brudenell


#154

I have only heard great things about that venue


#155

it is the greatest

gorilla is pretty brilliant as well


#156

havent heard it yet but this is not great news. ignore the ignorant started out as an EP as well didnt it…


#157

It’s the best. Thought I’ll be in holiday for the leeds ones. So it’s king tuts for me.


#158

Listened through three times now. Don’t think I’ll be giving it a lot more time, it’s just a little uninspired and the trademark Cribs hooks just aren’t there. That said I really really love Rainbow Ridge.


#159

it’s £4 for a hooch at gorilla!!


#160

aye the drinks arent great but its a pretty nice venue for its size
