Not so certain with your review. It seems a bit pre-emptive. Initially I wasn't a huge fan of the record, but after taking it in as a whole over a week, I came to really appreciate the entire piece as a cohesive unit. If prior expectations of a 'Daft Punk' record are abandoned, the songs are actually catchy, beautifully arranged, and ripe for remixes by....Daft Punk. They began their career sampling old 70's disco/funk tracks and chopping them into new masterpieces. It seems Daft Punk created their own Disco/Funk album worthy of sampling so as to educate the current EDM youth - and more than likely, the Daft remixes of RAM will sound nothing like the original record. Homework, Discovery - this album definitely is NOT. But musically speaking, RAM has some gems worth a few listens. Worth another listen: Instant Crush, Lose Yourself to Dance, Fragments of Time, Doin' it Right.
I totally disagree on holding off for this album. It's not Hellbilly Deluxe 2 but its hard rock all around. I'm a bug fan of Zombie and I'm pleased!
5 stars to the new album, I love the Ragbirds...I'm so glad they make the kind of music they do.
See, I instantly liked my own comment. One must be astute to navigate the webs and threads and internets of life. I make myself smile.
John, Im thrilled to hear that youre in the Motor City, where I know its real. I want to play some of your videos. Its my feti- I mean passion. Who are the bag ladies?
Mick does a hell of job. Check him out.
thats my lil girl .. swear she has the soul of an old black man lol love you becca blues
I feel that a lot of Wu-Tang solo efforts fit your description. Overall, they're good, but nothing stands out. I'll give Fishscale the exception to this notion. But OBFCL 1 and 2 tend to seem like one long song at first listen.
So not a Josh Groban fan I see! Oh well, Josh has the last laugh...the Album charted #1 in the US and still selling strong!!!
I picked up this CD last week and i agree it kicks ass! well worth it!
If your ears are open, you will hear honesty from me
My interpretation of "Here We Go": https://sites.google.com/site/videohereweg…
And I'm the guy that recorded that. Mick Maslowski @ Zoinga Recording. Thanks for the compliment on the production. https://www.facebook.com/ZoingaRecording
Rob, you can't just leave well enough alone, can you?
Hello there! I'm "whoever is penning these tunes". Thanks so much for the kind words about our music, it really means a lot. I must say I'm a little surprised by the interpretation of the album's theme. None of the songs have anything to do with ex-lovers or feeling jilted or bitter.
Quite the opposite, in fact. "Rumours" is about the uncertain early moments of a new relationship, "You Can Have Me" and "Incandescence" are unapologetic love songs, "Tail Lights" is about never living in the same area for too long, while "You Know Who You Are" and "It's On" are rejections of hipster culture and television, respectively. Overall, the album is lyrically positive (although I do harbor quite a resentment toward television and hipsters).
Then again, the thing that I like most about art and music is that everyone that experiences it will come up with their own interpretation, unique to their perspective and situation.
Nevertheless, thank you, thank you, thank you again for listening to our music and having such nice things to say about it.
Band of Horses always delivers. And it was pretty cool seeing them on Letterman the other night! http://bit.ly/S5Ze10
Wow! The song "Who" is amazing! The album cover of her jaw being misshaped jaw is a little unusual but definitely worth the listen!
Thank You Real Detroit and Robert for your thoughtful review! I am spreading my version of Detroit Blues-Rock far and wide XX
I hope you get AIDS and leave us Train-iacs alone!
I have that album, love it! Amazing live show too
