An absolutely amazing night out at the Roundhouse. O.M.D. were completely amazing, and John Foxx and the Maths supporting set was brilliant.
I like motorway driving, especially at night, when the roads are quiet, and that makes me listen to John Foxx. Metamatic being the best album. I love how angular it is. Wonderful to drive to.
I’ve been a fan of John Foxx for a long time now, but listening to his latest album I started to realise that there is a real signature to his songs, to the progressions and sequencing of them. You could probably recognise them in other people’s music quite easily.
Not that it is a bad thing you understand. I like his music a lot and I think that the last two albums he’s done as John Foxx and the Maths have been excellent. In fact I’ve been playing tracks from them quite obsessively for a while now.
It just occurred to me when I was listening to Evergreen.
Is the new album by John Foxx and the Maths. I got it today. It is awesome. So what did you expect? Apart from anything the whole package is a thing of beauty. It is in fact a book containing two CDs. One is the main album and the other is a CD of remixes.
I’ll take a few pictures in the morning and you can see just how good it is.
It was an awesome performance from Mr Foxx as ever, and a great venue too, just right for his stuff.
I listened to this album 3 times yesterday and it is growing on me. I guess one of the things that makes it difficult to get into is that I’ve already heard a couple of tracks which I really liked, so I sort of think the whole album should be like that, and it isn’t entirely.
Still, it is a good album, and I think it’ll continue to grow on me.
I’ve been waiting for this album for a while now. I got the ‘special’ edition, which is nice to look at. I’m listening to it now, so I’ll let you know what I think later.
