In honor of +-, I figured I'd do a Mew ranking.
Mew is easily one of my favorite bands of all time, and I'm absolutely loving the new record (but it's too early to include it).
A Triumph for Man
I still need to listen to this record.
Half The World Is Watching Me
Half of this record went onto Frengers, and it's really cool going back and hearing the older versions of songs like Am I Wry?, 156, and Her Voice is Beyond Her Years. Mica is an incredible track.
And the Glass Handed Kites
Chinaberry Tree, Why Are You Looking Grave, Apocalypso, Special, and The Zookeeper's Boy are incredible songs. The album starts to drag towards the middle of the record, but it ends on a high note with the last two tracks. Great album.
No More Stories
No More Stories is only a hair away from being perfect. This record is easily Mew at their most adventurous and experimental.
Perfect record, and one of the best records that I've ever heard; simple as that.
|If I were to prematurely include +-, I'd probably put it between #3 and #4. |
It'd be an arbitrary inclusion though since I am still digesting it, but I am loving it just as much as I did the other albums when I first listened to them.
Interested to hear your thoughts. =)
|in complete agreement with this list. i was listening to comforting sounds earlier and god damn, what a powerful song. forgot how much i loved it |
|Nice.. new record is a solid 4.|
|Most definitely, and one of the best things about this band is how they have quite a few tracks that easily rival Comforting Sounds' intensity. |
Yeah, I absolutely agree man. I have only listened to it a few times though. Once final exams are out of the way, I'll be giving it some serious plays as opposed to just listening to it as background music. Even with that, Clinging to a Bad Dream, Satellites, Rows, and the closer are all excellent songs. Even Water Slides has grown on me.
|id put the new one between 2 and 3. agreed otherwise|
|Sweet. I can see it growing like that tbh.|
|last track is very good|
|heart skipped a beat when i didn't see +- |
(because i thought you were implying it's not worth ranking lol)
i'm just waiting for my physical copy before listening but from what i've heard so far (satellites, making friends, witness, water slides) i'm sure i'll love it. no more stories is my favourite by them and it seems like this album's following the soundscape-vibe they had going on
|Solid band. No More Stories would have to be my favorite.|
|Yeah I'd put 2 and 3 over 1. Haven't listened to the new one enough to decide where I'd rank it in relation to their other stuff|
|have only heard 1 and 2 but 1 is easily better|
|Frengers is overrated. Glass Handed Kites is better.|
|Frengers might be overrated amongst Mew fans, but I definitely wouldn't say that it's overrated in general. I respect that though. ATGHK is still an easy 4.5, and it has some of their best songs. |
|thats a fair assessment|
