    agreed
    got their discography and there's so many good tunes on it.

    Yeah, they're epic. I especially like the "Teardrop" song, yeah, I know it's old, but I still like it, I just can't get bored of it.

    yup. listen to it 20-30 times, and then you'll get it. i find the same with most of their music. it needs to grow on you.
    saw them last summer. brilliant.
    timeless band

    well said.. thats the problem with todays download mentality, you get something free and cheap, listen once, if you dont like it particularly you delete it and discard.. loosing nothing ..


    years ago, if you paid for a cd .. knowing it cost you money, you'd listen to it over and over, f you wasnt keen you'd give it few more listen, read the little booklet you get with it , and genrally appreciate the product more.

    its a shame.. i did it with Nirvana unplugged in new york,

    different to their other albums, i bought it when i was a kid with birthday money, wasnt keen on it, coz i wanted to hear smells like teen spirit type songs ..

    i was gutted.. listened to it over and over coz it cost me .. now i love it , favourite album of all time. know every word to everysong.. listened to it more times than dan m's had wanks...

    well mybe not.

    yea it is isnt it ..

    get something for free, if first time or two sounds shit you genrally just download a different album by them or something..

    if you pay, you try get your moneys worth and end up appreciating the music more..

    i downloaded sir smurf lil's albums (ukhiphop) ..

    listened once and wasnt keen on his spasticated voice so bagged him off.. even tho hes spent years on them, and his wordplay is amazing.. i just bagged him off in a second like a used jonny..

    if i paid for it , id listen loads.. so anyway, yeah .. ive forced myself to listen a few times and its growing on me .. shame bout his weird lisp thing. fuckin spaz

    haha yea.. most times. unless you got too much money.

    i used to get paid a fuck loads , bought loads of production stuff ect.. never used any of it.

    but now, if i buy something you make sure ..

    even if its a drink that isnt that nice or a meal when your out ..

    you still finish the bastard !
