Ballad Of The Times
Ballad Of The Times
Price: £0.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Blast from the past, 16 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ballad Of The Times (MP3 Download)
Everything but the girl were much beloved by students and indie types back in the day Love not money is a truly superb album ,ballad of the times is the best song on it. Ebtg released further truly great albums and then disappeared of the radar only to emerge in the mid 1990 s with a remix of misding .Buy Love not money your life will be a little better for it

3.0 out of 5 stars More of the same ?, 16 Dec 2012

As much ad I am a fan of the Mumfords,they are obviously excellent musicians lyrically less so.I do think there is a danger that the Mumfords will in effect release the same album time and time again. Babel is a change up musically and lyrically from the first album but is it a evolution well I am not so sure.The mumfords do risk becoming the Status Quo of pop/folk which is sad.The album is litttered with anthemic fist punching tunes with annoying time changes and stop start bits ,love of the light being a stand out tune,all in worth buying and playing to death until the next album

More doom laden shoe gazing from the Leeds band,that said has a more electronic vibe going on than their previous releases,you kind of know what you are going to get with I like trains,that said it is a fine way to spend an introspective 40 mins of you life, I like trains are a fairly unique band with a unique style and sound and the world is all the better for it,there is a danger that I like trains disappear up their collective backsides into pretentiousness and the music becomes a musical soup but hey take it for what it is listen and enjoy Justin Beiber they ain't thank god for that

4.0 out of 5 stars unpronouncible coldplay album, 23 Nov 2011

I think this is coldplay's best album since a rush of blood to the head,x and y wasnt a game changer as for viva la vida i think they started to believe their own publicity.As with any coldplay album there is a duff song or two most notable is the song with rhiana it just seems to be very poor indie dance r and b but hey you cant win them all.Do slightly agree with another contributor that this may be a bit of a concept album,but you cant continuously release another album full of yellow,the scientist and fix you,you dont get to album number 2 never mind album 4,5, or 6 without evolving.Overall this is 4 out 5 not as good as a rush of blood....but not that far behind.
