Product Description

Product Description

Album two. The follow-up to the acclaimed 'Short Strut...' With acclaimed producer Chris Tsangarides (Black Sabbath, Judas Priest) at the healm, thisGIRL self co-ordinated and A&R’ed, the album (with a lil help from friends like Metropolis Studios and Primal Scream drummer Adam).

Last year, DrownedinSound web site said of thisGIRL’s Fierce Panda EP that it was "one of the finest examples of gloriously invigorating modern rock music the UK has ever produced". Drowned in Sound Recordings was listening and the websites label snapped them up, quick smart.

This record is a testament of hard work and belief in ideas and ideals, in a world where laziness and short attention spans appear to dictate. It's 12 tracks of loudness, lushness, rawness, confusion and hyperactivity which perfectly and without any techno-cheating, encapsulates the bands incendiary live set. There're nods to everyone from stoner-rock godz Kyuss to Jeff Buckley via Dr.Who and The Blood Brothers. Ready?

2.0 out of 5 stars Great live act; shame about the songs. 14 Mar 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you've seen this lot live you'll know what the fuss is about. However they have little writing talent compared with other bands on the scene like Million Dead, Biffy Clyro and Cardiff's "The Take" etc. I had to listen to the album 4 times before I realised it wasn't that I didn't get, it just that there was nothing to "get". Liam is a weak vocalist and they always choose dreadful production for the sake of being different. The odd riff here and there is noteable but as a whole it just makes no sense. First album was average but had more likeable songs on it. DiS have been stitched up with this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Album of 2004 15 July 2004
Format:Audio CD
I still remember the first time I saw thisgirl live, nearly two years ago now. They were opening for a band I liked and my friends and I came early. I remember standing there a bit confused, a bit shocked and trying to take it all in. There was so much energy and lead singer Liam Creamer was litterally bouncing off the walls. It was a show I'll never forget and I make an effort to see them anytime they're playing nearby,
Since then I've got (I think) everything they've released and so we come to Uno, the new album.
Uno is FANTASTIC, everything I was hoping to get from this band, an album I've been waiting for.
Forget all you may have read from the press comparing them to lostprophets or stuff like that, thats not what this band is about.
Their genuine musicianship and natural talent is second to none and in this album you can hear it better than ever. They mix genres up, change them around and come up with some of their own. A bit rock, a bit prog, a bit blues a little bit jazz, a bit metal and on and on. Which makes it very hard to describe.
You want something on the heavy side then thats Master Blaster or maybe Cartwheels, change tracks and you'll find the soaring likes of Drake or You Are But A Draft. My fave right now is St James Gate, tho' my flat mate's is Oscilloscope Love. Theres a song in here for every mood.
They push the envelope on this one and dont dissapoint. Its refreshing too, to hear something that isnt all about screaming and how loud something can get.
Artwork wise it looks like the band did it all or so it says, theres the longest thank you list I've ever seen on a cd, and even liner notes where you can find out about the recording (like all the drum and bass recording was done in 4 days!?). Its nice to see a band care about these things again.
Buy this album, you wont regret it and it will be one of the best things you do all year.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST BUY!!!! 18 Sep 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
UNO follows on from the likes of 'A Short Strut...' and 'Demos for the Family.' I have been impressed with the band's endless energy, and this album is a must buy for all fans of emo music. There is quite a combination of tracks in this album, with more energetic tracks such as 'master blaster' and 'hallelujah' to more relaxing tracks such as 'Don't be a kite' and 'St James Gate.'
UNO is currently the best album I own. For those who are familiar to the band, I seriously reccommend that you buy this album. And for those who are unfamiliar, I'd like to introduce you to a vibrant band, full of energy and character. Your stereo will become addicted to this album, believe me!!!!!
