I’m taking a break from taking a break from blogging to post another Music article… Clint Eastwood style:
The Good: ‘Balloons’ – Foals
Foals is a new Indie rock/Dance Punk band from Oxford, with a briliant combination of bass and drums, as well as one of my favourite lyric phrases so far this year: “fly balloons on this fuel called love”. Great danceable rock song with clear guitar lines, what else can you do but listen and enjoy?
The Pompomist is a division of The Pompomist North America, part of The Pompomist International. If you get offended by anything I’ve written here, then please grow some thicker skin.
The Bad: ‘Thought I Knew’ – Weezer
What in the World happened to Weezer?! These songs are f***ing horrible. ‘Thought I Knew’ goes right inside your brain repeating the singing word ¯‘SOORRREEEEE’ over… and over… and over… again.
The Oh No!: ‘The Greatest Man That Ever Lived’ – also by Weezer
‘The Greatest Man That Ever Lived’ has probably the worst intro to any song by anyone in any genre ever… by anyone who has ever lived. Then it goes towards mediocre until it completely degenerates into craptastic!
And I am not the only one saying this.
