Wammers Album Club... Tues 21 st Oct - jayhawks " rainy day music "

Recommended Posts

Not for me.

I like stuff that is a bit similar - I really like the Finns and I'm not averse to a bit of twee-ness. But this just keeps larding on the twee until I stop listening. This album might be well reviewed if they have a WAC over on Mumsnet.

It did make me very glad I chose Zappa last week, in spite of the kicking I got for it.

I've had a couple of listens to this now and it just doesn't grab me - I do like Stumbling Through The Dark tho' with faint echoes of The Byrds and it's reprise but the rest just didn't float my boat - sorry Mick.

However, like Zappa, there is plenty to explore in their back catalogue so all is not lost :^

I've got Tomorrow the Green Grass and Hollywood Town Hall, both of which I like but I have been listening to a lot of post punk lately, The Fall in particular, so this just sounds far too nice for where my musical taste is presently focused. Under different circumstances I would probably find it ok if a little bland compared with the two aforementioned albums.

I listened on Tuesday and have now completely forgotten it. Pleasant, inoffensive, unmemorable, etc.

I've now listened a couple of times. As people have mentioned, It's an inoffensive album with some quite pleasant tunes.

It's a little samey though - too vanilla for me - it needs an injection of raspberry ripple! :^

Super Wammer

I bought this after hearing it here. Only just got round to playing it, I really like it. It makes a nice tonic to the stuff I normally listen to. Thanks for the intro :^

spambots, eh? :roll:

Oi! :off:

I know it probably looks like that but I really am just trying to catch up with about 3 months worth of WAC as it's not really fair for me not to listen to other wammer's choices and then expect everyone to listen to mine...
