MOVING UNITS dangerous dreams



I heard about this band, again, thru my good friend john. He handed me a sticker of the band and latest cd which i hung in my locker but i wasnt too sure about the band, i asked john how it was and he told me he hadnt heard it yet so i wasnt too hip on it. But then i decided to go ahead and give it a listen after i saw that samples were available on iTunes. After hearing little 30 second excerps of each song i thought that this band sounded really interesting and was worth downloading, so i went ahead and did so. After listening to the full version of each song i was very pleased with them.
in my opinion i thought that the vocals sounded a lot like david bowie but the instruments were somewhat unique, the begining of the very first song sounds very james bondish and the rest of the song continues that theme every once in a while. there are also points in the cd where i was reminded of the instruments in INTERPOL the song that sticks out the most for me is at the begining of SCARS for some reason listening to that makes me think of INTERPOL. There is also i point in the cd where you can catch a glimps of the band SWEET who sang BALLROOM BLITZ, im not sure what it is but listening to AVAILABLE that song came to my mind.
overall i liked the album, i thought it was very enjoyable and easy to just sit back and listen to.

OK, I'll bite. Interpol is not a very good band. They only really have one trick, and it begins to grow old about 3 tracks into their first album. If I wanted to hear Joy Division, I'd listen to Joy Division.

i'd agree, the first three tracks on Bright Lights are about the same, but the 4th song is NYC, the 5th song is Hands Away, and Leif Ericson and others follow shortly afterward. Antics is the first 3 songs of interpol done 10 different ways. Moving Units is some fun shit though, for those looking for a better alternative to the ok and now very popular Killers.
