View Full Version : A couple of new CDs

I picked up the new Kaiser Chiefs and new The Dears last week. I'm really digging the new Kaiser Chiefs, Off With Their Heads. I just love that XTC influence in their music. I'm still getting to know the new disk, so I can't get into any detailed review or compare it to the last one just yet, but it'll get a lot more spins for sure.

The new one by The Dears, Missiles, on the other hand...meh, at best. It starts off really good. I like the first couple of tracks but then it just starts to drone on. Booooooooooooring. After three spins it's not likely to get much more play from me. I may stick the first two tracks on my iPod but that's probably it. What a disappointment for me. I loved their last release, Gang of Losers, but the new one doesn't even come close IMO.

Thanks for the tip on The Dears. I liked their last one, too...and I enjoyed their opening set for the Secret Machines recently.

I'll have to keep an ear out for the Kaiser Chiefs' new one. Haven't heard a thing yet.
