National Anthem Of Nowhere, 192 kbps: http://www.sendspace.com/file/7gnin
ENJOY! BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, DISCUSS!!!!!
I love the drums in the title track. I think I preferred Sebastien the way it was before, with those weird synth noises instead of the female vocals. I like Rafaga because I love the syncopation and I'm glad they kept the clappy parts.
I need to listen to the rest more before opining further.
for a second i was all 'WHO IS STREETHAWK?????'
anyway. i adore Cheap Like Sebastien to death, especially with the female vocals, although part of it reminds me of that Feist/Jane Birkin collab. i only like the end of Rafaga and am really sad with the way it turned out. Chances Are kind of weirds me out. and there's a guitar riff missing from A Rent Boy Goes Down that makes the song feel kind of lacklustre.
despite all that, i love it! OPINE SOME MORE PLZ!
I don't like it anywhere near as much as Folkloric Feel, and I think National Anthem Of Nowhere was a lot more intense as a BSS song...but then again I have only heard the album twice, probably need to let it digest before I make any comments.
I was going to post about the leak a couple of days ago, but for some reason i'm the only one who can't post in this community :)
I like Rafaga a whole lot - it's such a great song to begin with, so there was no way it could be butchered. Same with National Anthem of Nowhere.
My favs are probably Chances Are (although it's very straightforward for AoH) and A Rent Boy Goes Down, though.
