I liked their stuff under "PINHOLE" i originally bought their "So Over You" cd in 02 .... Anyone have their other releases under that name. "Breaking Hearts & Windows" EP and "122 Duke Street" EP ........ anyone has these tracks please contact me, the internet is completely oblivious to their material.
Kings of Leon & The Black Keys are still very good, but ok, Dead 60s. I hate Ska, I just found out. Their cover of Seven Nation Army!!! Toe-curling. LOVE riot radio though, very good song (it is not ska at all, that song, right??)
Yeah I tried and failed to find any glimmer of light in the darkness that is the sophomore effort. It sounded like they wanted some radio play; and any time a band goes in that direction, it destroys songwriting.... al la Kings of Leon and to a lesser extent The Black Keys.
What compels an artist who has released an original and distinctive album to, on the sophomore release, abandon everything that made them unique and special? Time to Take Sides is boring, bland, banal, and could have been made by almost any wannabe high school band. If this is the direction the band was heading, good for them they called it quits.
But, oh, what a glorious debut.
Hehe, hendy, got it for 2 Pounds as well :). I was so excited as I loved the first album and was looking forward to eventually get my hands on the second album as well. But, um, they don't sound at all like on the debut. So far a bit disappointing. But I wanna give it a try. The debut was ace so the second coming cannot be all bad.
Why didn't they stopped after the first album..? If they did they would have a cult status right now because the first album is epic! Second album is just blueeehhh. In my opinion they already died when they released the second album..
