I've been really digging the first record lately. It's the only one I don't have on wax though. They really should reissue it.

Like I said in the "Now Playing" thread, I've wanted to get into these guys but haven't been able to yet. I always see their records at the record shop and they look so pretty. Which three albums should I listen to in order to crack the surface, and in which order?

Everyone told me to start with The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place but that one took me a while to get into. For me, All Of A Sudden I Miss Everyone is the album that grabbed me and made me want to listen to the rest.

If I were you I'd go with All Of A Sudden I Miss Everyone, then go back to How Strange, Innocence, and then go to The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place.

Been listening to these guys lately.

I like it n'all, I find a lot of it interesting, but with a lot of songs over 7 or 8 minutes, I'm not sure this is the band for me.

I find myself having a hard time paying attention past 4 minutes, then I get kinda bored with the music. I mean it's alright, some of it reminds me of Mogwai, but I don't think this is a band that will be regular rotation for me.

I can totally see that. They would make for a great solo road trip band or an evening at home - the Mrs. + weed + whiskey.

Fantastic show in 2007. These guys are great but not really for everyday listening. I always found them a great listen when wandering aimlessly through London or venturing through museums or galleries.

I ran a road race in February with Take Care, Take Care, Take Care in the earbuds. Also listen to a lot of Explosions while practicing my soccer skills. In ear headphones make exercising so much more epic...Postcard From 1952 makes me feel like I am floating in zero gravity.

i think one of their concerts might be pretty awesome though.

even if the whole thing sounds the same.

from what i've heard whilst internetting this afternoon, it's... it's mogwai. not to say i don't like what i've heard, it's just that these guys are producing the same elements and combinations that i like of mogwai and sigur ros.
