Review #16: The View - Bread And Circuses

Well this is fresh isn't it? It's usually the case that when a band releases three albums that sound the same, people tend to get bored. But 'The View's' flop of a second album 'Which Bitch?' meant that their third attempt really couldn't have been any worse. 'Bread And Circuses' seems to be wonderfully slightly better than average. Perhaps pulling themselves of out the landfill indie junkyard. Maybe not that far.
I have to say though, I do find Kyle Falconer's voice very enchanting to listen to. His accent really works with landfill indie, which is actually a good thing; he genuinely sounds like the kind of person who would wear the same pair of jeans four days in a row, and I take my hat off to him for that. But let's not reminisce anymore. Let's just say that the fourth album won't be too difficult to improve with, but harder than last time. So no, don't go thinking 'The View' are going to be going anytime soon. They are going to continue to be mediocre for a while to come. Don't you worry.
