And they're so young! It's amazing! Absolutely amazing!

 

Like a Rock Opera. I could just see them putting this on stage with the prostitutes and the coppers and the discos and taxi ranks and everthing.

 

I'd pay to watch that! :lol:

IBYLGOTDF is my ode to Guy Berryman... :lol:

 

I Bet That You Look Good On The Dancefloor

 

Stop making the eyes at me, I'll stop making the eyes at you

And what it is that suprises me is that I don't really want you to

And your shoulders are frozen (cold as the night!)

Oh, but you're an explosion (you're dynamite!)

Your name isn't Rio, but I don't care for sand

And lighting the fuse might result in a bang, b-b-bang-o!

 

I bet that you look good on the dancefloor

I don't know if you're looking for romance or

I don't know what you're looking for

Well, I bet that you look good on the dancefloor

Dancing to electro-pop like a robot from 1984

From 1984!

 

I wish you'd stop ignoring me, because it's sending me to despair

Without a sound, yeah, you're calling me, and I don't think it's very fair

That your shoulders are frozen (cold as the night!)

Oh, but you're an explosion (you're dynamite!)

Your name isn't Rio, but I don't care for sand

Lighting the fuse might result in a bang, b-b-bang-o!

 

I bet that you look good on the dancefloor

I don't know if you're looking for romance or

I don't know what you're looking for

Well, I bet that you look good on the dancefloor

Dancing to electro-pop like a robot from 1984

From 1984!

Oh, there ain't no love, no Montagues or Capulets

Are just banging tunes and DJ sets and...

Dirty dancefloors, and dreams of naughtiness!

 

Well, I bet that you look good on the dancefloor

I don't know if you're looking for romance or

I don't know what you're looking for

Said I bet that you look good on the dancefloor

Dancing to electro-pop like a robot from 1984

From 1984!

:cool: From The Ritz To The Rubble :cool:

 

Last night these two bouncers

And one of em's awright

The other one's the scary 'un

His way or no way, totalatarian

 

He's got no time for you

Looking or breathing

How he don't want you to

 

So step out the queue

He makes examples of you

And there's nowt you can say

Behind they go through to the bit where you pay

And you realise then that it's finally the time

To walk back past ten thousand eyes in the line

 

And you can swap jumpers and make another move

Instilled in your brain you've got something to prove

To all the smirking faces and the boys in black

Why can't they be pleasant?

Why can't they have a laugh?

 

He's got his hand in your chest

He wants to give you a duff

Well secrectly I think they want it all to kick off

They want, arms flying everywhere and

Bottles aswell it's just

Something to talk about

A story to tell you

 

Well I'm so glad they turned us all away we'll put it down to fate

 

I said a thousand million things that I could never say this morning

 

Got too deep, but how deep is too deep?

 

This town's a different town today

This town's a different town to what it was last night

You couldn't have done that on a Sunday

 

That girl's a different girl today

Said that girl's a different girl to her you kissed last night

You couldn't have done that on a Sunday [of course not]

 

Well I'm so glad they turned us all away we'll put it down to fate

 

I thought a thousand million things that I could never think this morning

 

Got too deep, but how deep is too deep?

 

Last night what we talked about

It made so much sense

But now the haze has ascended

It don't make no sense anymore

The album is good, but IMO it is overeted and overhyped. Their is room for improvement, but giving it a 10/10 won't go down well with the band because they know they have to improve on it with the next album, and it will keep coming back to them, that their 2nd album isn't as good as their debut.

 

But I prefer a bit of Word Gets Around :)

Hmm, the more i've listened to it, the more I have noticed the differences to the demo's I'd loved so much....its sounds so much more produced, not as raw. But hey, I guess thats the way things go.

Still love it though. :)

 

And clocks-politik, I agree, its's frosted flakes grrrrreat! :lol: :lol:

just my opinion but the album is just all the same all the way through no direction or change quite boring after 5 songs

 

 

Heh, same thing could be said for X & Y :lol: , Anyway, they`ve smashed the record all the way to number 1 this week, so they now hold the record for fastest selling debut album ever in the UK, good on em I say, bout time someone with talent knocked Hear`say from that top spot.

 

As for being the same all the way through, couldn`t disagree with you more, how are tracks like "Riot Van", "Mardy Bum" and "Sun Goes Down" in any way the same as "Ritz To The Rubble" and "Fake Tales Of San Fransisco"?

 

Easily the best album of the year so far, although We Are Scientists album really is the bollocks! :lol:

MADNESS!!!! People were going nuts! :lol: Also saw Maximo Park (who I've seen before) and they were fan-bloody-tastic! Monkeys are good but not yet developed their stage presence. That Paul Smith - what a mover! :D
