Right, get this out of the way.
Loved the first 5 albums. Credit this band with turning me into the person i am today, (who i like anyway,) hello pig came out and i cried my heart out. Absolutley loathed it, give or take a few tracks. That said it has grown on me a lot, and i now hold it dear. Still, when green blade came out i had fairly low expectations, and was very happily suprised. Despite some weak songs towards the end i really felt they'd got back on track.
So now truth an lies. Instantly loved the whole thing.
Last man alive is fantastic, fast, and furious, maybe the most promising track they've written for the live circuit in five years.
Make you happy is the beautiful day of the album, nice song, nothing special, if any other band had done it i wouldnt even have noticed.
Confess is, like the first track a good song bouyed by a blinding chorus, makes me think theyve given more thought to playing good live then they have recently.
For us all, like someone else said, is a bouncy number which will be a lot of fun live.
Knot, Steel knife, and Wheels are all great tracks. LIve live live!
Said And Done is my favourite, beautifully constructed.
Whos the daddy, great chorus, kinda beatlesesque, dodgy versage tho. Weakest on album.
The Damned, another fantastic track, like said and done, and unlike daddy, show what mark is capable of when he thinks about what he's singin. Will be a live fave methinks.
Sleeping, great closer, beautiful instrumental at the end.
All in all, cant wait to see this lot live again. most positive ive felt about them in a long time. This is a fantastic album. i feel like a 15yr old again! Love it!
