2.0 out of 5 stars Wheres all the songs, 20 Sept. 2012
This review is from: Oshin (Audio CD)
Well, apart from the attrocious spelling involved with both the artist name and album title Dive ( not Diiv) have a wonderful texture to their guitar sound... the end
That is the only memorable factor on Ocean( Oshin .. for the knobs) there arent any songs, there are hardly any melodies from the vocals or anything remotely interestng rythmically. But hey those guitars sound all fancy and reverby don't they.. yes they do.. but unless your some guitar tech/nerd who likes to masterbate to 45 minutes of a Cure-like guitar sound , then please avoid. I dream for Dive to actually use this sound add some songs that would work even without the effect pedals and maybe sing a bit.....

Oh by the way these bands do exist in the 80s...... I used to love the 80s before the 00s got its filthy mits on it and ripped it to shreds leaving just a small crying featus behind.

I have no idea what your going on about!?! This is one of the best albums ive heard. Oh, and there's 13 songs fyi. And "Hardly any melody from the vocals"? That's how vocals should be. I bet you listen to coldplay or something... Justin Bieber maybe?

Really you don't think that vocals should have melody ? I like Coldplay but not Bieber, I also like Nick Cave, Talk Talk and Godspeed ,,,,

Their name was originally Dive, but they had to change it due to a copyright infringement of another band, with that spelling you are no one to complain! The heavy attack on the guitars really drives the sound on songs like 'Doused' and they are brilliant live, I only saw them as a support act and now I'm hooked! And yes your spelling is atrocious.

there are 80's influences here yeah, but if you have a problem with music influenced by an era then you probably don't really like music.

It's kind of ironic that you accuse them of having bad spelling when you yourself don't seem to have the literary sophistication of a 10 year old. As for the name, it's becoming a more and more popular trend today for bands to deliberately misspell their names so that it is easier to search for them in search engines like google.

Wow, there are so many things wrong with this review. The band name is spelt differently because originally they were called dive but realised there was another band with the same name so they changed it to diiv. I think you should stick your Coldplay.

Well, why don't you just spell it correctly in those two minutes, instead of writing it wrong... Those are common words...
