I didn't. Both them and LC! were on tour that week here (the two days previous to Frank at SBE as well) but my finances are at an all time low at the moment so gigs have had to be cut right back :*(

And I don't dislike the JF album; just could've been better than it was (see also: Tubelord)

The first Johnny Foreigner album is miles better than anything Dananan have done. As fun as they are, I think they're too busy hugging each other to actually write some songs.

My opinion on their second album, though, is pretty much the same as Mark's. Couple of good songs, little else.




What? I'm feeling judgey today.

basically, 'the greater than symbol...' is brilliant and everything else they've done is AWFUL.

Thrice - Beggers

took me a while to buy this one, wasn't a fan at all of the eps or the last album but on first listen this album is sounding pretty damn good to my ears.

I really like Beggars. It's not in the same league as vheissu but it's good. Bit of a Thrice fanboy though, admittedly.

see I'm firmly in the illusion of safety camp, freaking love that album. artist was pretty good but nothing new then vheissu lost me completely and the eps had sme good tracks and I like the idea but on the whole it didn't work for me. what I loved about Thrice was the way they could shift from blisteringly heavy to mellow in an instance and on the eps they split the tracks so you had all the mellow stuff on one disc and heavy stuff on another disc, I like variety and the eps didn't give it to me.

Yeah Illusion of Safety is amazing but Vheissu for me is maybe my favourite album of all time. You talk about going from blisteringly heavy to mellow in an instant Vheissu is the epitome of that, tracks like Hold Fast Hope, For Miles, The Earth Will Shake, they do it beautifully. Such a powerful album, particularly towards the end, and there's so much variety to it. It's such a journey. Give it another listen if you werent keen early on, its a bit of a shock from TAITA.

I would agree with you about The Alchemy Index though, more of an experiment really, lacked the variety as you say. It worked well though, some amazing moments, just quite a few dull ones.

Here's my Beggars review, if you're interested at all:

I listened to Godspeed You Black Emporer! for the first time in ages today, and remembered how much I used to love this band.
