For what it's worth, I think "Antics" is their best album.

I like the new track - "Lights" a lot. The video is class. Freaks me out but class none the less.

I never got into Our Love To Admire - making it my least favourite of their albums. But I've not listened to it since about 07, or whatever year it came out. It probably deserves another chance. I don't even know where it is!

Anyone else pick up the Turn On The Bright Lights re-master ? Can't say I'm noticing much of a difference with the sound - but it is a nice package - with b-sides, demos, Peel sessions and a dvd.

Always preferred TOTBL to Antics, but recently I've decided the latter is better. I'd love to see them again. Only saw them the once.

Turn On The Bright Lights was their best album imo. Everything else they released just sounded like a pale imitation to this.

Personally, I most like Antics.

I find it hard to compare TOTBL/Black Sessions to OLTA as they're very musically different.


But in fairness, they're not the strongest lyrically. The music compensates for often weak lyrics.

Nobody would like these fuckers if they wore a t shirt and jeans.

Hardly applicable to a band that actually makes good music, even if they do look a bit like male models. I don't think i even knew what they looked like properly until around the second album.
