Listened to it on Sunday for the first time and you're not far wrong. It was the first one in a while that I've really taken to on first listen. Always been some standout tracks on every album but as a whole I dont recall a track I wanted to skip past and come back to

I'd heard it live a couple of times but the riff on 'let's go to war' is insanely good.

i'll tear the arse out of this album before the week's out. I'm very very impressed.

That's some claim. I was a manics obsessive until 'this is my shite show me yours'.

Album would want to be amazing for me to return to listening to them.

Hmm I got a text about how good it is yesterday. May give it a listen.

that glasto set definitely came across better on telly

they were excellent but the crowd was piss poor

I have some sympathy to an extent because the mud was so thick that it was very difficult to move your feet or jump about the place

but it was fairly obvious that the crowd weren't particularly interested in the manics

I thought last year's Rewind the Film was great, but this one pisses all over anything they've done in years. Yer man from Scritti Politti sings on one of the tracks too, and even that works really well.

I had a listen, I wasn't pushed on it. Definitely not better than This is My Truth.

i love TIMT but you could almost argue there's a few filler tracks on it

it just feels like there is little bit more quality on this new album

i like all the various collaborations and changes in tone throughout it too

Listening to George Ezra at the moment. Not usually big on this kind of singer/songwriter stuff but he's quite good. He's got a pretty fantastic voice and I love that he looks absolutely nothing like what he sounds like! Album's at least three or four tracks too long but there's still some very good stuff on it.

Listened to Sia's new album too. It's a bit meh. I prefer her more downbeat/trip-hoppy stuff to her pop/R&B stuff, nowadays she just sounds a bit like Rihanna (albeit a less irritating and far vocally superior version of Rihanna).

New dfa 1979 track on the radio. Its decent, but not quite up to previous standards.

Tim Hecker - Virgins

Ben Frost - AURORA

listened to both for the first time there while tidying up, Tim Hecker album was more striking, really liked it. Had heard AURORA live and didn't really know what to make of it, still don't.

agree, it's ok but not as good. Royal Blood sound a lot like dfa1979, might actually go to see them Saturday before Arctic Monkeys.

I prefer it to a lot of the first album, as good as their sound is DFA don't write the most amazing of tunes, they're can sometimes be noise without genuine melody.

Gutted I never got to see them before they broke up. Some amount of crackers in their discography.
