4.0 out of 5 stars Still counting down...., 3 Jun. 2006
This review is from: Civilian (Audio CD)
brilliant album. Suzie is an excellent song, a briliant, driving chorus. boy kill boy are a band full of energy, they have a full sound, with synth and hard beats similar to the surge of post-punk bands we've witnessed the rise of during these past 24 months. similar to a hard rock killers, they deliver infectious sing alongs such as "On and On" and "Six Minutes". lyrics are patchy at times, but then, who expected poetry on a debut album?? Boy Kill Boy are definately a band to look out for. for those of you who wanted an opinion on this album in particular, you should have stopped reading after the first two words of this review. everything else is irrelevant.

3.0 out of 5 stars cover looks like Attack of the penis monsters, 11 May 2006
This review is from: Lovekraft (Audio CD)
now that cover is just graphic. they should sell this cd in a brown paper bag, similar to what they did with hendrix's "electric Ladyland". as for the album itself however, sfa have matured their sound, incorporating a whole string section in some of the numbers, and even having the guitarist, (the hilariously named Huw Bunf) sing on a couple of songs; "the Horn", "Back on a roll". unfortunatley though, his voice doesn't match up to the wonderful quirkiness of Gruff Rhys' voice, who really takes a back seat in terms of his involvment with the songs and his vocal performance. quite easily the best track on this album is the rollicking "atomic Lust", full of psychadelic guitars and thrashing drums. "zoom!" is also a bit of an oddity, the whole album preceded by the sound of someone jumping into a swimming pool. overall though, the songs while not bad, exactly, aren't really very memorable, personally i would point you in the direction of "Radiator" or the excellent "mwng" for a better approximation of the furries' wonderful sound.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great visuals, so-so performance, 15 Nov. 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
now don't get me wrong, i'm a big U2 fan, and that's quite evident in the fact that i would buy a product like this. i have all their albums, both elevation DVD's and loads of singles and stuff, but there's no denying it - Bono's losing his power, and this is really the edge's tour. this guy (the edge) sounds like he's had serious issues with his wayward lead singer cavorting with bush et al, and this is conveyed through his guitar playing. no doubt about it, this guy's on fire.
in terms of overall performance however, the band themselves are not so refined compared to other dates in their tour (i went to see them in cardiff and they were absolutely mind blowing! maybe it's because it was later on in the tour, i don't know) or their previous dvds. missed cues, off tune vocals and a few other things don't excactly spoil the performance, but they do take the shine off what was in my experience a great rock n' roll show. (if you don't believe me, check out the reviews of their chicago dates: they're not that complimentary)the choice of songs are sometimes inspired "Electric Co, Zoo Station, Running to Stand still being the highlights on this DVD) amidst the tired and flaccid. (pride. i mean, the song's just too powerful for them for them to sing anymore) overall though, not a bad purchase for the price offered here, although the extras are a bit thin. visuals are great, like i just mentioned, but the security camera feature on the second disk is a bit of a dud.

4.0 out of 5 stars Feeding My Senses, 19 Feb. 2005
Truly majestic. Feeder are one of those few bands that do not depress, anger or give false hope to a listener, but rather succesfully manage to comfort them and give them a sense of well-being. This album is no different. Melodic songs, poigniant lyrics, and in true Feeder style, excellent riffs and choruses feature greatly in this album. Continuing with the same strand as "Comfort In Sound", this album is full of mellow, melodic songs, with the possible exception of "Pushing The Senses", the most rocky tune on there, and probably the strongest track. other favourites include the strong opener, "Feeling A Moment" and "Bitter Glass". Probably the closest thing to this album is U2's "The Unforgettable Fire". Truly Excellent.
