Post of the week winner: 22nd March, 2013
thats fair enough. Antiphon was really good but I don't think the post Tim Smith era can ever rival anything with him in the band. Thats just a personal bias.

He's still gone so the lineup for the new album (not due out til March) will be the same as for Antiphon.

Yeah - it’s a different feel in many respects to their other ones
I’m looking forward to the new one. I played the shit out of antiphon when I got it first - interesting to see where they go next.

It wasn't great but it wasn't as bad as Neutral Milk Hotel or this Green Lung album.
I honestly can’t remember ever listening to it. I only remembered we did it because I thought I’d give Midlake a chance as I’d never heard them before. Then saw a familiar album cover and thought, no wait, they’re shite.

Yes

I think we all agreed that the opening track is a belter and the rest of the album is a bit of a mush

I had forgotten that. Jesus what a woeful album. Still agree with my review of it.

It's as bad as the rest of the album
