El new single [Jan. 5th, 2005|01:44 am]


[Current Mood |oh dear.]
[Current Music |The new Idlewild single....]

"You're kidding yourself, kidding yourself,
You're going nowhere, and you're going there fast".

Well noticed, Roddy. You are kidding yourself.

This is quite easily the worst single Idlewild have ever released. And think about it; if that's the lead-off single, then what does that hold for the rest of the new record?

Urgh. Take me back to when I was 15 again, plz. Idlewild is dead, long live mortgage-rocking AOR.

Am I alone in thinking this?

I reserve the right to turn round in 3 weeks and call it a 'grower'.

i don't think it's THAT bad. and to be fair, a LOT of roddy's lyrics are a bit 'hmmm'... but great none-the-less. And think about it - quite often bands put out the single they think will be the most mainstream as a lead single to gain general popularity for the new album. Look at Tori Amos, she's releasing a new album called the Beekeeper in February, the first single is to be this horrible mainstream and NORMAL thing called 'Sleeps with butterflies'... whereas we know there's special things to come... I'm not gonna base my whole judgement on one lil' single...

Have some faith guys!
