the libertines

Well for any other libs fans out there who haven't heard the new album (the imaginitvely titles 'the libertines') I thought I'd inform you that while its good its a long way short of my expectations after Up the Bracket!

Some of the better songs (can't stand me now, music when the lights go out) have been spoiled by stupid echoey production stuff - as for the rest while there's nothing bad about it there's nothing life changing either. It seems as if they just couldn't transform the live stuff into decent studio material.

After the sheer genius(!!!!!!) of Up the Bracket I'm a little dissapointed - but then again after the troubles of the last couple of years I suppose its hardly suprising.

Best songs (after a quick listen) - the man who would be king, last post on the bugle, campaign of hate + what became of the likely lads.

Hoping that its gonna grow on me after more listens!

    Your mini-review is quite helpful.

    Perhaps you could post a full track-list for me if you found yourself with nothing to do on a rainy day? That would be appreciated.

    Probably, wouldn't suprise me - he's been in priory twice in the last month and some special addiction treatment monastry in Thailand and legged it from all of them.

    And more interestingly they've kicked the lead singer of the Pogues out because of his drinking!
