  1. i think we probably all agree that they’re the best band in the world right now

    But what’s your favourite track? There are so many!

    I’m a big fan of Start a War

    Turtleneck currently playing so I'll say that (as there's too many to choose from).

    Average band.

    Think they're awful. They sound like the Killers but hipsters love them for some reason.

    Think they've been a bit meh since High Violet.

    Anyone's Ghost popped into my head but could be just about any track from the 2nd and 3rd albums.
     
  6. They sound like the Killers? Do you have ears? :lol:

  9. They sound absolutely nothing like the Killers. Do you have the right band?

    They’re fine.

    I bet the OP’s favourite band is Royal Blood even though he was born in the early 80’s.
     
  11. Never heard them but the sound like they are 'Grand'.
     
  12. They’re absolutely dreadful

    Definitely. Guitar music is fucked if they're the best band in the world. Them and Interpol and all the other dreadful dullards are the nails in the coffin.
    I watched that documentary a few years ago and the only good thing about it was the singer's brother who shot the thing. He came across as full of humility and genuineness, while the band just seemed like arrogant bores.

    They're strange ,their stuff isn't instant or catchy and can seem average but given the chance it gets under your skin then you can't go back

    Brilliant band and can't wait to see them again in July at Castlefield Bowl.

    Favourite song has to be Mr November just for memories of screaming the chorus pissed up at Primavera a few years back
