I do think its possibly a good album to have on in the background, if youre reading a book or something, but after the long wait I just wanted something I could sing along to, and theres not one song on it I could ever imagine doing that to.

But, as I said, Ill persevere with it and see if it grows on me. I just think its a shame that I have to.
Nikki the interview with Annie Mac is on YouTube now. The embarassed thing isnít true - he doesnít say anything like it - just that he wouldnít do some bits the same.

I know, I saw it earlier. He winces/cringes at some of them.

I played the album again in my car on my way to work earlier. I tried my best but the only song I managed to listen to in its entirety was Four out of Five.

It was always going to divide people and I probably will play it again, but its just not for me. It would be an extremely boring world if we all liked the same things

To me it just sounds like they've had way too much time contemplating their navels before recording the album. You are, of course, allowed to have an opinion that differs from mine, but having streamed the album a couple of times I'm glad I hadn't spent good money on buying it, and will move on to something with which I'm more enamored.

My expectations were never so high from them. I think this is why I am not disappointed like the rest of you.

Am I alone in saying I could not name you any song that these have ever done and have never knowingly listened to any of their music ?

You're probably not best placed to post on a thread discussing their new album then?

Yes, very Bowie.

I don't know why some people expect a band to keep doing the same kind of thing for years on end. Put yourself in their place and ask yourself if you would want to keep making the same kind of music year after year.

Of course they are going to want to vary it and try new stuff - it's allowable to not like some songs or albums, even by your favourite bands. And sometimes you have to put a bit of effort in yourself; I didn't get Humbug the first few times but then I heard Songs for the Deaf (great album) and totally got it.
