A great band if I say so myself. Everything off of their first album was class. Most songs off of their second album were excellent.

I've just heard Mercury, and whilst I think it's catchy, I think it's not their style at all.

If you haven't heard of them, listen to this:

Mercury:

REMEMBER, this is a song that is far from their style.

If there are any other fans of this band on this board, what do you think of their new Electronic sound?

I love their first album and enjoyed their second, just never fully absorbed it. Will be downloading the new one soon hopefully and probably.

I also love the Phones Disco Edit remix of "Banquet," which was the first song of theirs I heard.

Most people prefer the first one. It was their original stuff. I really do like the new electronic stuff though and I don't usually like that sort of music.

By the way, their new album isn't out yet, just an experiment song called Mercury.

I think its an online release, so if you have access to the Internet and a credit card, you should be fine.

My broke behind is going to have wait until it reaches the torrents.

The download time is 9am GMT and I'm leaving for the airport at 9:15am.

It's going to be close, especially if the site crashes.

imo, they've always had a little electro in their style. a lot of people have been remixing their stuff

i saw them live at L.A. Detour and it was awesome, their first album is my favorite

I bought the MP3s today (I have no interest in the physical CD) and I really like it. Wrote a blog about it too:


Here it is.

Great new album. I really like how they've evolved.

I'm a big fan of the band and this album did NOT dissapoint.

Favourite songs anyone?

Signs and Biko are just such beautiful songs about tough things to sing about.

Song songs from their new album:

- Great fast paced song. One of my favourites.

- Great sad song.
- GREAT song about the sad subject of death. I didn't like the song in the beggining but now it's one of my all time favourites. If you listen to any of these, make them this one and the first one.
