have a good album!


i was really nervous to listen to them, b/c i gotta admit that i'm kinda of a bippy twat fashion hipster, and liking the libertines would have just been really predictable, but uh...


i really like Up The Bracket

hmmm, so does pitchfork. what does that mean. i never get if they're kidding or what.

you know that 'where does all the money go?' song. i enjoyed that for a couple of listens but none of their other stuff really does it for me

"Can't Stand Me Now" is fun. Pretty forgettable though.

everything they have is fun for a few listens, but then it gets remarkabley forgettable.

except for 'Boys In The Band'... that song is just great.

I liked Up the Bracket and still enjoy it. but their last album was pretty disappointing, other than "Can't Stand Me Now" which I think is far from forgettable, its their best tune, it sums up everything the Libertines are about (also it's incredibly catchy).

Up the bracket is a decent album. Their S/T is pretty boring.

that second album isnt really a 'libertines' album anyway, it was a ragbag of demos and unfinished songs assembled into some order by carl barat and mick jones, pete had already been kicked out well before the finish;
still cant stand me out, music when the lights go out and what katie did are all class

they were also Bernard Butler-produced, so that was an immediate interest point for me.

Pete Doherty is a gross, discusting man. His little life isn't nothing but drugs, jail, and blackmail.
