The word on...future this,the big pink
Friday 20 January 2012
"The Big Pink's insistence on keeping their amplifiers and ambition turned all the way up to 11 for the length of "Future This" makes for a decidedly dull listen and one that'll leave many fans hoping that the band will scale things back for album number three." consequenceofsound.net
"The tunes aren't as memorable or, in some cases, are arguably born out of consolidating that debut album success. Welcome to Difficult Second Album syndrome." bbc.co.uk/music
"To be commended for flaunting, gloriously, that most un-hipster of qualities: unselfconscious enthusiasm... Besides anything, the prospect of a chart-topping pop band with a bohemian background (well, they know people like that) is something to be glad for in January." thequietus.com
