1. Who cares

2. That review was more of a rambling career retrospective than anything else.

3. I agree with a lot of the review, and the score seems fair.

It's a good album but not great. It's not easy to follow the last album considering how good it was. I do like these songs:

The Birds
Lippy Kids
The River
Open Arms

To me the biggest disappointment by far was Duffy. I loved 6 or 7 off her first one but not even one in her sophomore record.

Oh, for serious. That second album was just heinous. And her first just doesn't hold up for me, even though I liked it well enough when it came out. Her voice is rather shrill, and without any catchy or even halfway decent songs behind it, it's nothing but a shrill voice, and you're left to wonder (as Popjustice so perfectly put it in their year-end wrap-up): remind us why we ever liked you?

The River is an understated gem, beautiful song

Oh yes. I liked, and still enjoy, her debut album but the follow-up was so average it was depressing. Not one song caught my attention.

My opinion on BARB (love that shorthand):

I was very surprised and pleased to find out on Monday that the album was already released here. I thought we would get the same release date as the US.

I like this album, so who cares if it's not as good as their previous work, that doesn't make it a bad album.

I'm liking it more now that I know what to expect, not sure why I was so negative about it initially.

By the way, who is this NSW? I vaguely recognize the name of this mysterious character.

Confession:

I tweeted Guy Garvey yesterday and asked if/when US tour dates were coming.

I hardly ever use Twitter to actually say something.

I wait with bated breath to see if the man with the swooniest voice alive will reply.
