I just heard this band for the first time today. i decided to listen b/c i hear alot of people mention them on the board. and yessss they are very good. they remind me of the beatles. very cool. anyways i hadn't heard of them before recently and was surprised to see that they had soo many albums. i'm not farmiliar with the order of their releases, but i'm sure that i ordered a few songs off their newest album. i forgot what it was called.... i think it was "the life pursuit" or something along those lines. anyway i ordered three songs.

I like "the Boy With the Arab Strap"

Other than that they aren't that good. The new one is decent. I have yet to hear 'Tiger Milk'.

I really like them. The Life Pursuit is one of my favorites, though some sites have said it's only average. Tigermilk is their best.

For some reason, Belle & Sebastian put a bug right up my ass. Can't stand the sound of 'em. Maybe I had a traumatic experience when they were playing.

Oh wait, that's why - because they SUCK DOGBALLS.

No offense to you of course, LailaV - everyone has individual preferences.

I used to love them.....I haven't listened to them in awhile and I hear their post-Peasant albums kind of sucked. They were pretty good live too.

I have too many cds and I only listen to about 20 regularly. I've listened to them all once. the Life Pursuit hasn't grown on me but it probably will if I give it another spin.

this tour of theirs has been really solid. 8 people on stage interacting flawlessly. Thw Wiltern show was so good. Their albums are so ornate and they recreate that sound to a T.
Even the instore at Amoeba Records LA was fly.
In July they're playing the Hollywood Bowl with the LA Philharmonic backing them.

I didn't go to see them (obviously), but they got a few shitty reviews of their recent show in Chicago.

Yup, if I can find them again. They are a few days old.

By the way, I'm not trashing people who like Belle & Sebastian. They're just not my personal taste.

I'll look for them online tomorrow and post them. There were I think two bad reviews of the show, and one pre-show slam. But again, these are all subjective opinions. If you dig them, have at it!

I, after all, listen to the Counting Crows.
