2.0 out of 5 stars Horribly disappointing second album, 20 Dec. 2007
This review is from: Show Your Bones (Audio CD)
OK, so I'll get dozens of people clicking the "unhelpful vote" button, but hear me out!

I loved this band when they started out. I thought they were the most exciting US indie band to emerge in a long long time, BUT...the bottom line is this - this album is simply nowhere near as good as the debut "Master" EP or the "Fever To Tell" album. It just isn't.

In fact, it hardly even sounds like the same band (with the possible exceptions of "Gold Lion" and "Cheated Hearts"). Other than that, it all sounds very very samey and desperately uninispired. If people want to misinterpret that as "development" or "maturity", then fine. What "Show Your Bones" certainly is not, is exciting. Which is what I thought this band were all about.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not much cop at all, 29 Nov. 2007
Sorry, but I can't understand the fuss about this band in the doom scene. This just sounds like a Sabbath wannabe band that never got anywhere near to being as good as their idols. So they were around at the same time as Sabbath - so what?

Maybe the later stuff is a bit more interesting, but frankly this album put me off checking it out. It's not a totally crap album, there are a few half-decent tunes, but don't waste your money on it.

"Living In A Ram's Head" indeed!!
