Nah, Bloodless Coup is the more consistent album for sure. It has a clearer artistic vision. The composition in Flock is less congruous and the production doesn't suit the songs as well as it could have. I think the last two are great in that regard - the production reminds me of Music in Mouth.

Got tickets for the gig tonight, haven't seen them since their last SAVOY appearance. Come to think of it, this is my first gig in probably a year.. :(

I've now given the album a few proper listenings and it's the album of my summer. the piano intro is genius (Darren how can you not like it??). it grabs you by the hand, and you go run with them. i like its more mellow pace, with some heavy moments here and there (brass + big drums = :D) (spot the non musician). Dave brings yet another heart stopping melody with Diorama. Silky. Motorcades is my least favourite. Feint praise has now fully grown on me. And the End is nigh is a sure gig anthem. Fantastic live.

brian's left, they've moved on and it's great. new styles, new tunes, new sounds and still so bellexian. back with Flock they've been compared to radiohead (no offense but i thought that was a bit much), but now. with quite a few albums, i can see how, like radiohead, they manage to evolve and remain very good. basically, they keep delivering. they're solid.

motorcades is lovely .... Faint Praise could have been an alternative motown classic!

I actually can't remember what the quibbles were - was it about the mastering?

Chop Chop is relatively dynamic overall (more than BC I would say), though it still seems to slow into the brickwall in the way that all records of the day do. I think it comes out of it quite well - you can hear it perfectly well listening on the bus, but it retains respectable transients and dynamic range if you're listening somewhere more conducive to the enjoyment of nuance. There's no sign of digital clipping through my portable player, though I haven't listened through my studio DAC yet - I might give it a go at the weekend. The Mytek reveals all.
