Re: At Rock Bottom (snippet)

they must have TONS of tracks like this laying around. good, not great, tunes they probably banged out in 3 hours. me, I love it.
although I will say when Neil first started singing it sounded like he just had dental surgery and the novocaine still hadnt worn off

Re: At Rock Bottom (snippet)

yeah I like it also. its also very 80's, and quirky like a talking heads song. another set of nice lyrics from Neil also

its another song that reminds me of the night time somehow. like "in bits" and "one night". something about the sounds used

Re: You Are The One - Birds

because I know how good Neil is. "Sad robot world" . thats how you name a song! the imagery alone. He's better than "you are the one".
surely he could have said what he wanted to say with something a bit more imaginative.

Re: Wedding in Berlin: revival of interest?

I said many times here I hoped they would put it on some B-side because I was dying to hear it. its a great title. little did I know I would get my wish in the worst possible way. one of the most precious real estates on an album there is.. "the closer".. and apparently Price said, "we need a closer...

Re: You Are The One - Birds

its like an undercooked chicken. its a very very slight song with no surprises to be had. it has a serviceable verse, but that chorus is as pedestrian,bland and by the numbers as they come. and I know these type of trite sentiments sell, but I would have thought that Neil and Chris were above such b...

Re: Only the Dark

I love "only the dark" but I just think its too slight vocally and the song just drizzles out with the fade. its almost like they recorded it last and as such didnt sit with the song long enough to think of little ways to bolster and build it up as one tends to do when you've had a song recorded...a...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

I see on the offical site no less the lyrics for Wilo the wisp still has that unknown lyric..... "I think, my,*** you may have changed" I personally think he said "my love" you may have changed, but I think neil accidentally just put a kinda weird twist on the word when he sung it. cause I just cant...

Re: Wedding in Berlin: revival of interest?

I would have given anything to be at the wedding when this pile of shit came on.
the old parents of the groom and bride turning to each other saying, couldn't they have given them a f****** toaster instead?

Re: Stuart Price Trilogy Top/Worse 5 (2013-2020)

I've always said that.at the end of the day the buck stops with the people writing the songs and thus the checks. theres nothing that poor guy could have done to head off that pile of dogshit being on the album except put enough avant garde coloring on it to fool people into thinking that piece of s...

Re: Wedding in Berlin: revival of interest?

This song to me is such a missed opportunity, I really believe they ....could have... created a song that could and would be played at weddings. it has the perfect lyric concept...they have the perfect platform to get the song out to the people, but...instead they wasted it all to put said nice lyri...
