  1. The harmony and solo at the end reminds me of Ordinary World by Duran Duran. Still love the track.
  2. Here's my review. I hope I haven't tested my partner's patience too much, I wanted to give the mix a fair listen over a couple of weeks. First of all, thanks for making it. From the fifteen tracks I've only heard one of them previously so it has very much introduced new artists to me. I thought the flow of the tape was spot on. Track 1 - One of the standout tracks from the playlist for me, the lead guitar had me hooked from my first listen. I heard it being played on a football highlights programme earlier this week, and to my irritation I couldn't think of the name. I then remembered t
  3. I've only got into Cocteau Twins recently, mainly because of the resurrection of My Bloody Valentine, but yeah, the melody on the chorus stood out for me.
  4. I'm thrilled that you enjoyed the mixtape, it's really made my day! Great review, I think you're spot on with most of your descriptions of the songs. Regarding number 8, when I first heard it I thought the synth was very similar to 'Scenic World' by Beirut. Here's the link and tracklisting: http://rapidshare.com/files/4130808786/MIXTAPE.zip 1. Rembihnutur - Sigur Ros 2. The Waves - Villagers 3. My Number - Foals 4. House - Kindness 5. Cherry-Coloured Funk - Cocteau Twins 6. Leave Your Body Behind You - Richard Hawley 7.

    I thought the EP was a success, mainly because of 1998. Follow Baby has been hanging around with them for ages and it's my least favourite track of theirs to date. Anticipating the release of the album later this month however, and it's nice to have a Birmingham 'scene' once again.
  6. There was no need for you to worry in the slightest :) Thank you so much to the wonderful Anna, I received your delightful card this morning and it made me smile instantly. The candy canes are lovely and in the process of being devoured by my mom and myself. My evaluation of my 'powers of deduction' has taken a huge dent, seeing as it didn't even cross my mind that you could be my secret santa after liking my bands page haha :) I wish you and your family a very merry Christmas, and hope you have a fruitful 2013!

  9. I thought it was absolutely beautiful. When I got into my seat (Jonny side of the cinema of course) I actually had an anticipatory rise. Hurts Like Heaven gave me goosebumps and they pretty much lasted throughout the whole film. I thought the cinematography was great, especially on Us Against The World. The interview snippets were my favourite part. Will's build up to Up In Flames was really sombering. Chris' view on rock and roll myths will always be something I resonate with and the film re-affirms my disbelief at how people can hate the band and especially Chris. My only problem,
