I hate this band so much!
A few years ago they were cool but now theyve tried to be coldplay after drinking coffee all day or something.
All they're new songs are just boring and so overplayed. The lyrics are stupid, they are all pussies and I just had to get it off my chest.
Come on Athlete fans, prove me wrong......!
seen them live?
don't even think of saying such things till you have.
Their songs are overplayed, true, but thats not their fault.
vechiles and animals is their best album by far though.
Their not that bad, I like their older stuff better
I really don't like Athlete one teeny weeny little bit.
I find their music very boring, lyrics quite pathetic and don't even get me started on the guys voice - probably the worst vocalist of any band i've ever heard.
I just don't seem to get why theres a big fuss over them, they're not a patch on Coldplay if thats who they're being compared to, get real!
yeah i agree that they are a bit pathetic, particularly on tourist.
They're not bad and i actually really enjoy listening to Joel sing.
El Salvador is the only song Ive heard by them, and its lyrics were so, so bad, I havnt invested any more time in them!
The early stuff they sang was good
I quite like Athlete, I've seen them twice live now (and seeing them again over summer), I think they have gone a bit Coldplay, but they still have their style and they were really good fun to watch live. And its only since their new album has been out that they've become overplayed, their old stuff hardly got any airtime at all. Even so, Wires made my skin tingle when I saw them live last time.
i dont mind tourist but i dont listen to it much
i hadnt really heard much of their stuff but saw them live because a mate ahd a spare ticket and was amazed. they were wicked, obviously still loving touring and the response from the crowd. i think vehicles and animals is their better album, livelier (sp?) then tourist. the lead singer's voice is really unique, i like that.
I think Chances from the newer album is wicked, I love it when it starts to go into the chorus bit ("It's all about your cries and kisses...") I just love the build up and it sounds amazing live. From Vehicles and Animals, I pretty much love all the songs, but the title track and New Project are my fave two.
