They're so much talented, sometimes I remember of Freddie Mercury by some of their songs hahaha very creative and unusual band, besides the great performance live! Can't understand why they're so underappreciated or recognized enough. =S
Not sure if I'm way behind on this or not, but here's a fantastic interview about Gonzo. Explains a lot, puts it all in perspective. Hope to see more Foxy soon: http://propertyofzack.com/post/84850476850/poz-interview-foxy-shazam
Gonzo is their most cohesive record IMO. To fully appreciate it you have to give it a few listens start to finish. My preference goes...Introducing > Gonzo = Self-Titled > Flamingo Trigger > Church. Church's second half is just meh.
I wanted to hear Shoe Box last night and ended up listening to Gonzo front to back for the first time in a few months. I can't believe I forgot how good it is. I even found myself getting into the "meh" songs I never paid much attention to. It's just beautiful, the layering and the lyrics and the way it all flows together, Alex sounds sublime, it's perfect. I hope they can take the time they all need and come back stronger than ever cause I really need their music in my life.
Guys, I need some help. I'm looking for 320 kbps mp3 versions of the following songs:
i) Teenage Demon Baby and Some Kind of Love (not the Au Contraire versions, the final versions that are on iTunes)
ii) Dog in Love with a Kitty
I'd be very grateful to anyone willing to give any pointers. :)
totally mind-blowing show in toronto tonight! they rocked my world! met eric after the show and had a lovely chat, then took a walk down the street with daisy!! gonzo translates live in the most amazing way, btw. :)
It took a few listens, but Gonzo quickly grew on me, and I keep going back for repeated listens!! It's not my favorite album if I'm comparing it to their others, but I def like it!! They manage to always make music I love, regardless of how different it sounds every time :D
Гонзо - самый худший альбом группы, с бедным звуком (что оправдано), но худшим вокальными данными Эрика, самая ожидаемая группа 21 века перевоплощается в группу растерявшую самое большую часть своего дарования. Я согласен мелодически группа развилась. Абстрактно и жанрово и подавно. Но где бляхамуха ебанный пофигизм и экспрессия?? Где? На концертах? На Урал они ни когда не приедут! Да и духовые останутся в этих ваших цинциннатях! Пацаны умножайте мелодику на агрессию и в с пианиной на абордаж!
I think Gonzo is superb. I always expect something different each time from Foxy, but this one caught me off guard. It's definitely a record that demands several plays, which makes it all the more rewarding. After a good few listens I've really come to love each track - the album is consistently strong throughout. I think the band also deserve huge credit for recording it live in a single take - they sound fantastic.
