first few tracks are better than RIRB

I disagree. Although I like Kick in the Mouth alot, No-one wins the War is an awesome opener and then track 3 is Stuck in my throat, which is obviously awesome


Maybe. It's a difficult call. And so the debate rages on...

Cities on fire is awesome too, if only for the emotionally crippling lyrics in the quiet section. I initially thought these were about the London bombings, but taking a look back on the board, the first mention of the song comes about 3 week BEFORE they took place, so I guess that's just plain wrong.


Is that right??? I assumed it must be about the bombings... spooky stuff.

It could have been written as a premonition following the general atmosphere of paranoia in Britain today...how's about that?
But I still don't know the lyrics.

I remember something like "so take it on the chin as london sheds its skin"

I really did think this was about the bombings Neutral

Maybe Jamie thought about capital cities. You know, September 11th- I hate to say it, but I felt like something was going to happen to.
Here's the first incidence of it I can find:

I wasn't at that gig, but the thread says that the song was written that day, which would still have been a month beforehand.

If that happened, it would be absobloodylutely awesome!!

I dunno if it would definetely happen, what with Zach being a stubborn bastard and all, but if it did, I'd love to see it!!

I wouldn't be so mad about Zack if he actually DID something. He spent so long working on stuff with DJ Shadow, released ONE TRACK, not even officially, and then scrapped it all! How awesome would that album have been?

Zack also adds vocal on a Saul Williams track 'Act III, Scene 2 (Shakespeare), just in case no-one knows...though that's been out a while, so I wouldn't be suprised if everyone did know.

& although this comment is going to recieve slaughterings, I remember hearing cities on fire when watching reuben at the mean fiddler, and I...didn't think much of it. It sounded like a fightstar track, which to me isn't a good thing. 'Ambulance' blew my balls off though.

Getting back to the main point, this RIRB/VFVD argument is like Reuben's equivalent of 'Jean Luc Piccard vs. James T. Kirk'. Just accept they're two different albums, and both great in their own right...

...though I prefer racecar.
