Flood were great, totally not what I was expecting.
That basically sums it up for me. ;D Not much to add from my side. Given that they already sounded huge (much more so than the main act last night) with unfinished songs and just a few days of rehearsing makes me really look forward to both the studio and future live work.
Oh, and if whoever shouted "We love you Chloe!" during one of the last songs would please speak up?
And thanks a million for the two tracks, Matt, they sound terrific!
I got this just before New Year. Only had the chance to listen to it twice. The music sounds like it should be really 'big', but its almost as if the production/mixing let them down. It feels almost washed out and dry, and I think the bass was over done... But its definitely grower music, so we'll see.
Just listened to it again today. I still like all the songs, production is ok-ish, but could certainly be better. I think they should be doing more stuff like Danger Diamonds — that'd be massive if it's produced right.
I don't like paying for intangible music (ie digital) so I might just wait for the CD
Got the CD yesterday and played it today for the first time (just on the bike, so this is certainly not a final review). I couldn't make out any boring/skip tracks. But I still think these guys need to shape their sound a bit more. It's really good, but I can sense that there's much more potential.
That being said, the last three tracks ("Gatherer...", "Danger Diamonds" and "//") are f***ing brilliant.
Looking forward to seeing them live in January, I hope they're going to spice things up with some nice guitars.
