    Thanks for sharing, I hadn't heard this track yet.

    I just picked up their "Manners" album about six weeks ago. I have enjoyed listening to it (despite its chipper chipmunkiness, my favorite song off it is "Sleepyhead"), but I'm not yet sure if it will hold up over time for me. I like their free-flowing production style of playing with layers and sound textures, but a lot of the songs themselves seem to have the same emotional tone. But that's not uncommon for really young bands, so I'm curious to see how they evolve in their first five years.

    Some bands make music you will love for the rest of your life, and some bands emerge from a specific recipe of culture/technique and are great within that context but after a while things change and their sound no longer seems all that interesting. Usually I'm pretty good at knowing which is which for me personally, but occasionally I misjudge something. A good recent example is Panic! at the Disco. Their name caught my eye because of the obvious Smiths reference, so when I saw an album ("A Fever You Can't Sweat Out") at the store (sometime in late 2005) I was willing to give it a spin. Standing there in the store, something about it grabbed my attention and had me ready to pull out the cash. About three weeks later, driving out to meet friends for dinner and listening to the album in my car I suddenly found myself thinking, "Ugh! Seriously, just get over it and shut the hell up!" I ejected the album from the CD player and have only listened to it once since then, just to check to see if my opinion had changed..... and nope, it's still awful.

    Yeah it's the kind of music that will be forgot about. It's catchy for the time being though.

    Ok, I feel better than before and that is what music is all about (even if couldn't understand exactly what they were saying).

    He recommended ABBA, I think he's on to me guys. icon_razz.gif

    Yes, op, I like that, very fluent like electricity, but electricity that just cascades over the skin, doesn't hurt. I love most of their stuff (hated Mamma Mia, don't take my gay card)! All time favorite song of theirs? You guessed it. Second favorite, oh!

    Hahah yes I never liked Madonnas steal of that ABBA song. My uncle and I were installing a new car stereo in my grandpas car and we testing out the cd's he had in there... classical, Simong and Garfunkle and ABBA! My grandpa loves ABBA so I guess it runs in the family (my brother introduced me to it).

    What about this GG?

    Ahhhhh, GNR!


    Almost anything off of Appetite for Destruction is good stuff.


    I was 13 years old when that album was released. Back before the 'flower of youth' had left me.

    Yeah sleepyhead is good too. Very catchy.

    GG: I used to have some megaman music on my computer though I never really played megaman.

    This videogame has the best soundtrack of all time, IMHO:

    Oh my. Sorry, but that sounds more like a group of randomly played instruments... all at the wrong time. Sounds like a MESS to me. Sorry!

    Here's my idea of catchy:



    Skip ahead to about 1:50 min in... and it will all still make sense.

    All I can say about the video though, is.... Lady Gaga is absolutely ridiculous.

    And I love it.
