Tim Burgess can pull it off - Delays can't!
on 17 March 2006
I really liked the first album and was eagerly awaiting their excellent follow up...and I still am! In my opinion "You see colours" is the difficult 2nd album, not to make, just to listen to! The voices have gone higher, the melodies lost and I can't take it seriously when there are quality albums from the likes of the Editors, Rakes, Arctics, etc to listen to instead. I read a review of Valentine, comparing it to a danced up version of Ride, but I can't see it. Remember when Tim Burgess started to sing higher, that worked, this doesn't. I really wanted to like this CD but can't. Needless to say I sold it within a week of owning it. Porridge!
