I grew up to the beat of electronic drums
They could have gotten so much more clever with the title if they wanted to. Nonetheless, I am surprised that BWO still exist as a whole.
I think i have fallen into the same rut that BWO have - i mean they haven't exactly been particularly innovative over the past few years, but for me they have cranked out a bunch of singles that have more than satisfied me. The rumours of a new direction both thrill and terrify me. I may be too comfortable with their sound to embrace the new stuff. on the other hand it may be just the boost they need, though even as a devoted fan i think maybe too little too late? I will reserve judgement.The cover scares me
I'm completely underwhelmed by the new single. Apparently it wasn't originally a ballad, though, and they just redesigned it because Alexander Bard is convinced Sweden needs to send a ballad to Eurovision this year, so I'm hoping the disco mix, when we hear it, will ignite my interest in the track, a la "Open Door."I'm sure I'll listen to the album and the references they've thrown out are enticing, but since they renewed by faith in them--left generally waning by their third album (which was "fine")--last year with "Lay Your Love On Me," every new track since then has disappointed me. I really hope they turn things around, though, since I love the idea of them so much and since they've done some brilliant work in the past.
Postergirl, your comment about loving the IDEA of them is so postmodern. Or Warholian!
I actually really enjoyed Fabricator, and thought it was a great return to form after the somewhat disappointing Halcyon Days. Give me the Night, Destiny of Love, and Gomenasai are top notch, and there isn't too much filler like I Keep Walking On or Hanging on the Phone. If Lay Your Love on Me & Bells of Freedom are any indication, the next one should be even better!
"The BWO suppository. It slides right in." = Brilliance.
