Doesn't matter that He said it was shite, too.  Can't help that I find a number of the songs on the 1st album engaging, with an awkward, frenetic adolescent charm.  They weren't entirely off the mark.  Rosie's right, some of the lines, some of the poetry's good--lol, "albeit frantic and unlaid sounding."  Exactly.  "Hammering Heart" is wonderful and intelligent for the kind of thing that it is, with the age of its creators taken into account.  "Keepers" has a beautiful, strained tension because of its dark subject wrapped in rather pretty music.  Or that's how I hear it...well, I won't go on.  I just like the first album.  It's an interesting oddity, and the seeds of their later greatness are there.



100% agree.

The style's very engaging, but the songs are iffy.

It's sixth form poetry but I like the arrogance of an album without playing chords.

It's a product of when it was made as well as the musicians involved.

David, I'd swear you're turning into me. This is very strange. I feel like you're channeling my brain. Shocked

I was listening to the 1st album again recently - I still don;t think it's especially good, but they were aiming for something very strange.  It's an art-rock record the more I think about it.
