I know that Pitchfork isn't too well-liked here at Punknews.org, because, well, they're elitist hipsters who are proud of it. We here at Punknews listen to fast, distortion-heavy music full of pounding drums and power chords. Many times I wonder what a huge punk rock fan can listen to when they aren.
I know that Pitchfork isn't too well-liked here at Punknews.org, because, well, they're elitist hipsters who are proud of it. We here at Punknews listen to fast, distortion-heavy music full of pounding drums and power chords. Many times I wonder what a huge punk rock fan can listen to when they arenít feeling like being yelled at through a stereo. What if they donít like mellow music (as some of my friends do)? Hopefully this review will broaden your horizons.
I was lying in my bed last night staringNo album is without flaws, however. When I Am a Bird Now is finished, the listener feels as if Antony could have lengthened the record maybe 10 to 15 more minutes. This would allow for more of a variety of songs and more opportunities for Antony to experiment with the unique sound he has going with the Johnsons.
I canít wait for what is in store next for Antony. The possibilities are endless.
If you didnít buy this record last year, redeem yourself and pick up last year's best indie CD, hands down.
