I am too, but seminal punk-rock band The Used had a better third album.

this album is brilliant! first album this year i'm really getting into. sounds sometimes like Architecture in Helsinki with bi-polar disorder. really exciting and energetic in the first half, and then final third all gets a bit depressing, but altogether just fantastic.

In Medias Res, Listed Buildings, Romance is Boring (how's the way he snarls "boring"!), Straight in at 101, Who Fell Asleep in, This is a Flag....

shame Vampire Weekend is getting all the attention.

anyone else noticed that the lyrics for Straight in at 101 in the booklet state thusly:

some people give themselves to a lover
i have to give myself to goals
, not girls.

Well, it sounded like "goals" all along, and it says "goals" in the A&C distributed copy of the album. Why would he write "...to a lover" and put essentially the exact same thing after it? It's "goals."


Something else that pisses me off about that Penn State review:

Quote:
In "I Just Sighed. I Just Sighed, Just So You Know," the band channels its inner Vampire Weekend and emerges with lighter, addicting tempos and genuine messages.
Now, "I Just Sighed" is probably my favorite song in the record, and it's no secret that I'm not one to ride the tripe train that is Vampire Weekend, so the comparison upsets me. Especially when it couldn't be less valid.

Penn State, I love you, but you're bringing me down.

no, i was just reading back through the thread, and seen Lemel had quoted it as 'girls', i assumed that's what you all had.

strange comparison though, you're right. something tells me that as this 'indie' music becomes more popular this year a lot of it will get compared to Vampire Weekend, they're getting all the attention. i don't see anything in I Just Sighed that 'channels' Vampire Weekend.

Plan A, 200-102 and Heart Swells are all gratutious.

I actually think "Heart Swells/100-1" has a nice kind of delicacy to it. Short and sweet. "Plan A" is indeed shit, their second worst song behind "End of the Asterisk," and "200-102" is a completely superfluous interlude, but certainly not offensive.

"Plan A" and "Who Fell Asleep In" bog the entire thing down. Lose those and "200-102" and you've still got a 12 track 41 minute album on your hands. A pretty damn good one too. I'm not saying it's a bad album as presently constructed, but without the filler, it might have been better than the sum of its parts.

Am I the only one that likes Plan A? I don't see what the big deal is. And those other tracks aren't even songs, they're fucking segues. Who cares?

Also, no fucking way do I cut Who Fell Asleep In. I wouldn't cut anything, honestly.
