Arctic Monkeys – Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I Am Not

Isleidimo data: 2006 Sausio 23
Muzika: Indie Rock, Garage Rock, Post-Punk
Trukme: 40:56
Track list:
1. “The View from the Afternoon” – 3:38
2. “I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor” – 2:53
3. “Fake Tales of San Francisco” – 2:57
4. “Dancing Shoes” – 2:21
5. “You Probably Couldn’t See for the Lights But You Were Staring Straight at Me” – 2:10
6. “Still Take You Home” – 2:53
7. “Riot Van” – 2:14
8. “Red Light Indicates Doors Are Secured” – 2:23
9. “Mardy Bum” – 2:55
10. “Perhaps Vampires Is a Bit Strong But…” – 4:28
11. “When the Sun Goes Down” – 3:20
12. “From the Ritz to the Rubble” – 3:13
13. “A Certain Romance” – 5:31

Ir pagaliau nusprendziau perklausyt si albuma. Praktiskai per daina – Choo Choo, kuri yra kieta daina. Well anyway.. Albumas geresnis nei tikejausi, pamenu kai ji klausiau pries kelis metus, tai nepatiko visai, o dabar, kai muzikos akiratis kaip reikant prasipletes, nuomone stipriai pakito. Albumas kupinas energijos ir geru lyriku. Vokalas – geras, Gitaristas – geras, Bugnininkas – geras, Bosistas – geras, ko dar noret. Bet kad ir kaip ten bebutu, man nelabai patiko kelios dainu vietos, atrode kiek nuobodokos ir pasikartojancios, bet minimaliai. Taip kad Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I Am Not vertas – astuonesdesimt sesiu. geras rezultatas.
Highlights:
The View from the Afternoon
Fake Tales of San Francisco
Mardy Bum
Perhaps Vampires Is a Bit Strong But…

The Beta Band – Hot Shots II

Isleidimo data: 2001 Liepos 7
Muzika: Indie Rock, Indie Pop, Electronic
Trukme: 45:52
Track list:
1. “Squares” – 3:46
2. “Al Sharp” – 3:34
3. “Human Being” – 4:31
4. “Gone” – 3:41
5. “Dragon” – 4:56

7. “Quiet” – 4:49
8. “Alleged” – 5:30
9. “Life” – 3:50
10. “Eclipse” – 6:35

Pagaliau nusprendziau ‘apzvelgti’ savo vasaros favoritus (ir siaip – favoritus) – The Beta Band. Hot Shots II, mano manymu, yra geriausias ju albumas (nepaisant bjauraus virselio). Albume vyrauja linksmos, energingos melodijos, arba tiesiog.. lengvos melodijos. Albumas tikrai geras, ir gana yvairus, galima klausyti beveik bet kada. Albume vyrauja truputis siuolaikines psychedelijos ir vokalas kartais atrodo panasus i The Beatles vokalistus. Tikrai geras albumas, nors kai kuriu vietu kai kuriuose dainose galetu ir nebuti.
Highlights:
Squares
Al Sharp
Gone
Broke
Quiet

5. “The Chamber” – 2:37
6. “Only the Truth” – 2:44
7. “My Mistakes Were Made for You” – 3:04
8. “Black Plant” – 3:59
9. “I Don’t Like You Anymore” – 3:05
10. “In My Room” – 2:29
11. “Meeting Place” – 3:55
12. “The Time Has Come Again” – 2:22

Taigi, darbas kuri priverte mane pasiklausyt Arctic Monkeys. Visai neblogas albumas, girdisi kazkiek tokio senoviskumo jame ir tragiskos garbes, kartais viskas asociuojasi su bitlais. geri vokalai, gera muzika, bet retkarciais atsibosta ta pati nuotaika ir vientisumas. Bet siaip albumas vertas astuonesdesimt vienoooo! whoo.
Highlights:
The Age of Understatement
Standing Next to Me
Black Plant

    Well, Favourite Worst Nightmare per 10 balų prastesnis, nei Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I Am Not:D Na, turbūt dabar ir antrąjį beždžionių darbą vertintum kitaip, ane?

    Ir, ei, kur post-punk’ą matai The Last Shadow Puppets’uose?:D Indie ir britpopas, manau.

    O dėl The Beta Band, buvai kada nors paleidęs juos, kai buvom susitikę?:D Jei taip, ir jei gerai pamenu ką išgirdau tada, tai reikės parsipūst jų darbų;)
