  • Re: MEW

    I can't wait for the new album. Satellites is beautiful in its restraint. I'm really interested in the sound with the return of Johan.

    I sit and moan and mope and groan and never have my say
    A crown of thorns from which is born a little baby bird
    To fly away and have its day is nothing but absurd

        I'm loving this album so much. If I was still rocking physical CDs, I'd wear this one out.

        I really wish they'd put out a 5.1 mix of this album.

        Cross the River on Your Own sounds like a lost track from Ghost by Devin Townsend Project, and I mean that as a huge compliment.

          I've struggled with this band. Never got into And The Glass Handed Kites as it sounded so samey, which I think was an issue with production. That guitar sound, whilst huge, metallic and clangy, unfortunately was just EVERYWHERE and there was no escape from it. Then No More Stories was just hard work again. Though I think maybe with this + - release I could probably backtrack.

          Absolutely love +-. Every track is solid. The two stand outs for me are Making Friends for its super pimpin' groove, and My Complications which is flipping brilliant.

          … And I love how consistently awful the album art!

          Don't normally do a "FFO" wank, but check out Rumble In Rhodos. I've been following these guys since their first album way back, but wasn't into them too much then. Since their first release (more hardcore), they've totally switched their sound. Definitely in similar vein to Mew now perhaps? But a little different. Anyway, you can put this in your ears and do one! https://soundcloud.com/rumble-in-rhodos

            I just picked up + - on Vinyl per Half Price Books 20% off sale. I do enjoy this album a lot, "Rows" being the standout track to me.

            thanks cribble, I've never heard of Rumble in Rhodos but I'll check them out.

            I would recommend the band Team Me for fans of Mew, although I could be wrong, but I think I or someone else recommended them a few years ago. Their record from last year"Blind as Night" was quite good.
