Buy it for the B-side,
This review is from: One Day All This Could Be Yours EP (Audio CD)
I make no bones about it - ODATCBY is rubbish; its a cynical attempt to attract a more diverse audience by releasing a second single that bears no relation to the first, or the album. Whether this was Oceansize's decision or (more likely) Beggar's Banquet is beside the point, its still rubbish and me no like.
Ive given this cd four stars! And mentioned the B-side in my title... WHATS GOING ON THOM!?! Well I'll tell you:
There are two B-Sides to this cd; "Breed Siamese", and a Live version of "Massive Bereavement" recorded at the Wichwood in Ashton (twas a good gig btw). Anyways, Massive is great, tres massive, lotsa energy and sweat caught on tape.
Better yet is "Breed Siamese", the biggest anthem Oceansize have ever written and yet for some reason still criminally underplayed by them (I see them a lot and Ive only ever seen them play it 2 or 3 times not long before this cd came out).
Big choruses, a bit of 13/4 time (or else a bit of alternate 7/4 and 6/4) nice cheezy harmonies by Steve, plus a ripping riff in the middle... This song should be the new national anthem, we'd all sing it proudly. Just buy it.
