Probably best to go in chronological order from there.

I love Xiu Xiu, but was pretty dissapointed in Women as Lovers. I just found it to be kinda boring. I couldn't get into it at all.

I was listening to IBOPA the other day. Haven't listened to much Xiu Xiu.

autistic daughters is a really good band if you want odd fractured melancholy avant poppy stuff that references noise and electronic and other sounds and genres..

They're okay. Their "sensitive" stuff is a bit too quiet and sparse for me, but the noisy stuff is fine.

i love autistic daughters.


live ive said before, i dont why people hate women as lvoers so much, i think its as great as anything theyve done. la foret is the ebst though. anyways, i love them. jamie stewart's lyrics are beautful, and i lvoe their noisy experimental avant garde meets the smiths sound. anyone gonna see them with prurient?

I've said it a million times, they're one of my favourite bands of all time. Knife Play is one of the best albums evereverever, I fucking love all off their albums, Air Force RUUULES, Women As Lovers was awesome, and like Jade said, it's great for Xiu Xiu without wanting to commit Xiuicide.

Well yeah. Xiu Xiu might be one of my favourite bands ever but also one of the ones how can get on my nerves. And the lyrics at times are just to attention seeking but on the other hand their sound is unique, Jamie's lyrics are mostly great and I think A Promise has to be one of my most played cd's.

I find Chapel of the Chimes horrible, it feels like a knife slowing going through my brain. It's the kind of stuff that makes me hate music, it just sounds horrible and Ceremony has to be the worst cover ever. It's a wonder I took the guess after that to listen to more of their stuff. But then I find Knife Play a great record even it took me a long time to get into it's 'vibe'.

A Promise has to my favourite release by it and I am 'lucky'(just look at the cover if your not familiar with it) that I own it on CD and Vinyl. From it's haunting start of the wonderful tearjerker Sad Pony Guerrilla Girl to the noisy emotion filled screamfest that is Ian Curtis Wishlist it's one of my favourite albums ever.

Fabulous Muscles is a bit overrated, but still a great record. I Luv the Valley OH! is mine all time favourite xiu xiu song but for the rest the album just misses the atmosphere A Promise had.

I feel bad because I still haven't heard La Forêt.

The Air Force is a bit more poppier album, which is a dangerous word in the context of Xiu Xiu. It's easy listing Xiu Xiu, the songs sound like their all finished(which isn't the case on their previous albums but still helped the charm of their earlier work). It's my second favorite record by them, lyric mostly.

I found Women as Lovers a great record and it was in my top ten of 2008. Again the sound is a bit more songbased/poppier but it's still the Xiu Xiu feeling all over again. The cover of Under Pressure isn't bad but should have been left off the album. It just doesn't fit so good on it. But still Black Keyboard is one of the most haunting songs I know and the cover art was/is again amazing.

I am really looking forward to Dear God, I Hate Myself(even the title is bloody awful) and might finally see them live.

I think this band keeps getting worse, especially live. I've seen them 3 times, and their last show was this total boring rock-fest with distorted guitars and crazy drums. What happened?... Also, didn't Jamie's cousin leave? Blah. She was amazing. I just think as their music gets "fuller" (and more "respectable" maybe?), it loses what attracted me to them in the first place. No problem with a band wanting to branch out, obviously, but they've lost something. Still has created some exceptional and genuinely unique and great songs. It's nice to see bands like this achieving any kind of success, so I will continue to support them in some way.

Yeah. If you look at footage wen she was still in the band(she is now in cold cave) it just sounds better/fuller. Even she still was on the latest album I don't know really, my favorites were A Promise/Air Force but Woman As Lovers remians a really strong album in my opion. But yeah, that's also a problem with having a band without a steady line up.

I've only heard Knife Play, but it's fantastic. Really really gucking good and easily one of the best records of that year. I've been meaning to listen to some other albums by them, but you all know how it is, it haven't happened yet. But I will! A Promise will probably be next.
