Mar 14 2008, 1h53 por warren33This Is Big Audio Dynamite is, to put it mildly, an inconsistent album. Side A is good (to varying degrees) while Side B is...
Well, let's just say that these guys weren't about to give Public Image Ltd. or New Order a run for their money with Side B of this record. Frankly, closing Side A with "The Bottom Line," which is by far the best thing on this album, is misleading. A "side-turner" track encourages the listener to flip the record over, because it creates curiosity. The hapless listener, seduced by the delight of a well-written, well produced song closing the first act wishes to press on. My recommendation if you're listening to Big Audio Dynamite's debut on vinyl: do not flip the record over! There is nothing worth listening to on Side B. Alternately, if you have the CD (like I do), press "stop" after track 4.
So, for the bargain price of...whatever the hell I paid for it used, I own a mediocre album, but what could have been a pretty good EP. …

- I really love The Feeling right now
- A lot of Hard-Fi. They played the same sets, but I'm not sick of them yet. Played new stuff, (You And Me, Suburban Knights), and some covers (E=MC2, Seven Nation Army). Particularly loving the E=MC2 cover, hope they record it as a bside.
- Paul Weller on stage with Hard-Fi at Brixton, doing Town Called Malice (!!!)
- I really not a fan of Orson, don't get why they're so popular, rather boring.
