Give it a try,
This review is from: Some Loud Thunder (Audio CD)
In the old days we, the listeners, didn't want the same album with the same songs on it, churned out release after release. A band was allowed, and expected, to grow.
It seems like the opposite has now happened.
Some Loud Thunder has been panned and derided as "too experimental" by the esteemed music press. I have never read anything as idiotic and unimaginative as most of the reviews.
Yes, it's very different to the debut and, yes, it doesn't make me want to dance around the kitchen as the previous album did. However, it does make me want to really listen to it.
As another reviewer on here has stated, it still has the same CYHSY elements on it - the brilliant vocals, the great songs and unintelligable lyrics, and I really think that once the shock has faded, people will love it as much as the first album.
Stand out tracks for me are Mama won't help you..., Goodbye to the mother and obviously Satan said dance, which has the kitchen dancing elements to it.
A much more developed album - give it a try...
