Album Reviews #1: Arctic Monkeys – Favourite Worst Nightamre, TV on the Radio – Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes

Arctic Monkeys – Favourite Worst Nightamre

Balai: 76

Taigi, perklausiau Arctic Monkeys albumo. Pagrinde albumas buvo visai neblogas, manau, kad dar klausysiu ne karta. Pastebejau, kad dainu zodziai labai geri ir is tiesu istrigo galvoje. Isskirtiniu dainu neissirinkau, bet kaip tokiems jauniems atlikejams, tai labai gerai padirbeta. Kas nepatiko, tai galbut tai, kad dainos buvo gan vienodos, pagal mane. Siaip truko instrumentalizmo,gal but, ivairumo. Bet cia Indie, tai nera ir ko daugiau tiketis. Na. Albumas tikrai neblogas, buvo vertas mano laiko, idomu bus paziureti ko sitie zmones pasieks ateityje, nors jau ir dabar yra daug pasieke.

Score: 76

So, I got through the Arctic Monkeys album. Generally the album was really not bad, I think I’ll have a listen a few more times. I noticed that the lyrics are very good, I really got into them and some got stuck in my head. Nothing to stand out from the track list, but as for such young people, they’ve done very good. One thing i didn’t like was that I heard a lot of similarity in the album. A lack of instrumentalism and, maybe, different approaches. But this is Indie, so I have nothing more to expect. Well. The album is really OK, was worth my time, and I’m interested into how will things roll with these guys in the future, even though they have accomplished a lot already.

TV on the Radio – Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes

Balai: 91

Nesitikejau, kad sita grupe ir sitas albumas mane taip paveiks. Indie rokas maisytas su dziazo, bliuzo, soul bei elektronikos elementais. Labai geras albumas ir tikrai siulyciau paklausyt zmonem megstamiem neiprastumo. Gerai padirbeta su dainu zodziais. Pagrinde istrigo 4 dainos: Staring at the Sun, Bomb Yourself, Wear You Out ir Dreams. Zinoma kitos dainos taip pat labai geros. Tikrai netruksta eksperimentizmo, nera monotoniskumo (gal tik truputeli). Dainininkas – Juodaodis, kas tikrai idomu ir jo balsas cia skamba labai graziai ir kaip tik tinka tokiai muzikai. Taigi, albumas tikrai vienas geriausiu is mano girdetu. Pasiulymai: Albumo Young Liars EP daina Satellite yra kolkas mano megstamiausia TOTR daina.

Score: 91

I didn’t expect for this album and this band to effect me this way. Indie rock flavored with Jazz, Blues, Soul and Electronic elements. A very good album, and I’d offer it to people who like different music. Good work on lyrics. Generally I got 4 songs stuck in my head: Staring at the Sun, Bomb Yourself, Wear You Out and Dream. Of course other songs are also great. This album clearly doesn’t have a lack of experimentalism, no monotony (maybe just a tiny bit). The singer is an African American, which is unusual and his voice fits in beautifully with this kind of music. So the album is certainly one of the best albums I’ve ever heard. Suggestions: From their EP – Young Liars, a song called Satellite is currently my favourite.
