Haha that is ace
Weirdly enough hype usually puts me off bands A LOT..
Arctic Monkeys.. so hyped up.. so overplayed I couldn't listen to their singles, really didn't like them... then I was sitting in a pub t'other day and one of their non-single album tracks came on.. really liked it.
Klaxons however... I dunno, maybe I just haven't noticed the hype, don't really listen to the radio (thank god for the iTrip), seen them here and there on various websites but got into them from gigs about a year or 2 ago I think.... If my memory serves me well haha
Absolutely love them.. I was looking forward to this album for AGES.. and it.. KIND OF didn't disappoint. I think maybe I haven't given it a good enough listen yet, but I think all the old tracks still stand out.. Golden Skans / Magick / Atlantis (if that IS on the album haha, off the top of my head).. Love the cover of Not Over Yet too.. They've done the re-done tracks justice, Totem / Not Over Yet etc.. they sound great. Golden Skans is one hell of a single.
I don't think by any standards it's a bad album.. and I think in time I'll count it as a great album... This is valid input honest :| haha
Everyone should check out Cansei de ser Sexy too..
These "new" raves are a bit different... but hey... long live raves haha
