On its own, without context, this sentence can be taken any number of ways.

This all gave me a good laugh. Well done, captains and commanders.

Thought Splendour was in New Shit Wales? Was thinking of going up for it provided the line up is good, MGMT and Bloc are appealing, nothing will match the '07 line up which for some shit reason I didn't get a ticket for.

That's mental. I got a taste of Paul Kelly at Sound Relief, now I'm desperate to see him live properly. He played my favourite song of his. Got two Josh Pyke albums now

Well, I listened, and let's just say I'm more of a Silent Alarm sort of man. The last three tracks were probably the best of the lot. Couldn't relate to the lyrics much, sadly. Pretty personal album... Biko... did he have a girlfriend pass away? I'm suprised I haven't heard more of these out clubbing. And what a video that Signs remix is

I think Intimacy is a grower. It's not immediately mind-blowing like S.A. or immediately I-know-I'm-going-to-like-this-but-it's-going-to-take-a-few-listens-because-it's-so-heavy like AWITC.

Personally, I think the album is best when it's veering toward the electronic-tinged (which I believe are the more Jacknife Lee produced songs): Ares, Mercury, Signs, Ion Square. And I think the Paul Epworth songs (again I believe they're): Halo, Trojan Horse, One Month Off, Better Than Heaven, work much better live than they do recorded.

That's just my two cents worth.

:yes; I haven't heard AWITC yet actually. I flicked through the Intimacy thread. Ion Square's probably my favourite so far... absolutely nailed the whole building crescendo thing.
