I often wonder how much of the footage people shoot on their phones even gets watched.

That's exactly why I stopped, some time in 2010. I never watched what I filmed.

The last thing I filmed with my phone was Lindsey Buckingham performing "Big Love"...I watch it every now and again, which was why I filmed it in the first place.

I limit myself to a single picture (no flash) throughout an entire show. I've never taken a video.

I love the douche-whistlers who fancy themselves as "journalists", and push to the front to take three dozen pictures in a 5 minute time frame with the world's brightest flash, blinding everyone else who'd waited patiently to get their spot. I've had fantasies of grabbing their cameras and throwing them as far towards the back of the crowd as I can and then just turning back to the show without saying anything. Not even jail can stop me.

My conclusive opinion on this album is it's fantastic. It's a form record - consistent, energetic and with some genuine tunes.

All the Rage Back Home is a classic single; Anywhere and Ancient Ways are top rock songs; My Desire, Same Town, New Story and Tidal Wave all lock into a wonderful groove. The rest of the songs are solid and enjoyable enough to carry the album through to conclusion.

A band reinvigorated. Four stars.

I'll never forget seeing them open for U2 back in 2010. They were boring and the audience was underwhelmed. I really felt that everything I liked on their albums totally got lost in that live setting. I've never seen them play smaller venues, but I guess they're better there. It's the fate of most of U2's support bands to not come across very well in a stadium environment.

I thought they were very good opening for U2 and the audience never gave them a chance.

the band, not just this album, got absolutely savaged by Pitchfork in their review.

Ridiculous review. Spent more time on the band themselves and their history than the album.

That is the formula. They so very often only seem to start addressing the album itself and the songs after the halfway mark of the review. Odd approach,

This is maybe the worst-written review I've ever read on Pitchfork. The author goes so far as to suggest Turn on the Bright Lights was only well-received because of 9/11. When you start attributing cultural movements to 9/11, you've officially run out of ideas as a writer and might as well hang it up.

Popmatters gave it an 8, if that makes any of you feel better.

Established, popular indie bands get crap reviews on Pitchfork, guyz. Their writers ARE that predictable.

That review reminded me a bit of their article on NLOTH, which reviewed U2 and not the album itself. I hate when they do that.

What annoyed me was he pretty much shat on Bright Lights as well. He seemed to be saying that if hadn't come out the year it did it would be a terrible album. The whole thing was just smug garbage.

Yeah just spectacular bullshit. Why commission a review to someone who so clearly has an axe to grind?
