I like it a lot better after a few listens.

a lot of the songs sound the same, and each one isn't as unique from one another like the first album but I still find it solid.

I really didn't get this band.

I half suspected their popularity was a sign of desperation

FF tried too hard with their first album. i wonder how much it cost to make the Take Me Out video. must have been alot.

because it deserves it. And since when did trying hard become a bad thing.

the word too indicates that (in isle's opinion) they've crossed the line where additional effort just distorts their quality.

I'd rather a band try TOO hard to make a good album than the opposite. I stand by what I said, pretty fucking asinine.

i think the band presented too much of themselves too quickly. much like their contemporaries, the Darkness, although the darkness had the excuse of being a joke band. i just feel that FF were too quick to assume their status as a major band, it just seemed to happen overnight with the release of Take Me Out which was a huge hit here in the UK. they followed it up with Matinee, and although that was a good single too, i think it came a bit too early. the pop-listening public weren't really ready for another big dose of FF's trademark pomp and eccentricity that soon. Michael also bombed subsequently. i think FFs style is generally a bit pretentious and tiresome too.

I don't think they assumed anything, the public did it for them. Anyway, this album will solidify them as a major band. And I say right on it's about time I can turn on the radio and hear something different than Nickelback and all the other shit bands plaguing the airwaves.

I think we can forgive Canada for that, given what's been coming out of there recently.

I gave half of the album a listen. Some good some bad. A little disappointed. The single that's out now really blows though. Next album I'm looking forward to is the Rapture. I'm counting on them to pull through.

I agree that DoYou Want To is just nauseating. But I think apart from that song it's great album, one of the best this year.

'Walk Away' and 'What You Meant' are better than anything on their first album.

Totally. I also love the opening track, "The Fallen"
I might go as far as to say this is better than their first. But, that may be jumping the gun a little bit.

I liked their debut at first, but I got sick of the songs pretty quickly and found them to be very repetitive. Now I don't enjoy listening to it at all. Based on this information, should I check out their new one?

phaedrus
10-06-2005, 04:45 PM
it's a huge step up from their debut.

the comparisons to the Beatles are obvious.

i'm enjoying it, but i don't see that it will have any staying power.

the fallen and outsiders are so fucking good. and this boy. i don't see how anyone could not like a song where the chorus ******* "i want a car!" shouted four times.

Really? That song totally grates on me. I enjoy it much more now that I've seen the video though (I don't know why). I will say

Gets better with every listen. Self titled is full of catchy pop pleasure, while this shows more progression. Both good albums in their own right.

I bought the first album to see what the hype was about.

I like parts of some songs, but no one song on a whole.

They just… kinda… suck.
Sorry.
