I'm sorry, but no.
Yeah, "the start of J's laziness" and one of his best songs (esp within second phase Spiritualized). Sigh. I'll take lyrics like "I believe I am damaged, I believe I am wrong." over 99.9% of ANYTHING else out there.
mc wrote:Sheesh! Sorry for having an opinion on the subject, and for forgetting that our Lord God Jason is immune from criticism Yes, as far as I'm concerned "On Fire" is a rank rotten song. You think otherwise, and that's fine. We're both right, because that's what what opinions are for.

mc wrote:Calling it "rank rotten" is my opinion. I'm perfectly within my rights to say so, but it doesn't mean said opinion is objectively true - there is no objective truth here. That's why I don't mind at all that you happen to like the song. I'm not on my high horse about your opinion, so why are you on your high horse about mine? Why get so touchy about someone else's views on a song? You really shouldn't give a hoot what I or anybody else thinks.

Instead of appearing regularly on best albums of 2001 lists, it seems to have become a staple reference source for hifi equipment magazines, and articles about the production in Sound on Sound.

it's quite song based
LICD is a little bit more samey.
