In reply to:

The Manics s are touring Australia in November so I should have a chance to see them properly. And if the new album's shite, I hope they don't play too much of it...


Better be prepared.

I have only listened to it once so far, but it seems way too pompous for my liking with way too little edege.

Re: Oh no new [re: EJ]  

The highly complimentary reviews (including the obligatory "best since Everything Must Go" line) has got my Send Away the Tigers alarm bells ringing.

Anyway, I'm committed to seeing them in Melbourne and in Perth. They'll probably never play in Oz again, so I'm milking their visit (as much as I can afford to, anyway).

Re: Oh no new [re: ziggfried]  

I saw them live a couple of years back at the Hurricane festival and they were excellent. They played one or two gigs in Berlin in recent years which were fairly short. One hour and that was it. Apparently that hour was pretty good but still I would have been annoyed if I had been there.

Not burning out, not fading away new [re: EJ]  

The new Neil Young album "Le Noise" is some strange recording. Produced by the legendary Daniel Lanois Neil comes up with a pure solo album, meaning no additional musicians or instruments - just Neil, his guitar and Lanois fuzzy sound ideas.

This is a thoroughly interesting and rough piece of music, still I would like to hear those songs again with a full band. The songs are powerful and Neil is being heavily personal with the lyrics but the concept of having just a guitar and a hatful of production tricks is wearing a little thin over the course of a full album. A good dash of drums and bass would have helped here. Unharmed by the lack of a full band are the two really strong accoustic songs of which especially "Love & War" is absolutely terrific.

Anyway, the album is definitely a must for everyone who has half a heart for true music by a true musician who refuses to get old and still likes to take risks. And you don't even have to by the album as Neil has put up a video of the recording session on youtube which includes exactly what you get on the record.

Neil's great. Still.

So what are your views on the new album then?

I haven't received my copy yet. As far as I can see, only the 1CD version has been released in Australia, so I've ordered the 2CD version from Amazon UK (the 2CD edition will probably be released down here next month as a "Tour Edition!" or something, but I don't wait to wait until then).

Le Neil new [re: EJ]  


The video of the complete Neil Young album Le Noise seems to be unavailabale on youtube now but German weekly Der Stern has it on its homepage. Definitely worth watching.

Re: Summer in the Suburbs new [re: EJ]  

I finally got around to listening to that Arcade Fire album, and being someone who mildly liked their previous efforts, I really love this one! Less art school, less folk, more Suede. My current favourite album.

then I tried out another of the suggestions in this thread, namely The National; not bad.

However: There are some news that would have shaken the world if it were 2003: Jack White is producing Dungen! Now in this link you can read that "Dungenís quick rise to fame continues skyward.", which is quite a strange statement considering that the group has existed for longer than the Beatles did. Anyway, even though it is 2010 now, this collaboration involves two of my favourite artists so I will be sure to check it out.

It's SAILER, idiot!
