The album is pleasant but didn't grab my attention enough to give me the desire to listen it again. Too generic and not catchy enough.

The album is fire, it's hooks galore. Mixed reviews, some are complaining they're unoriginal. NME hated it but the even snobbier Pitchfork gave it a high mark.

Critics don't get pop music. Same situation when they review Madonna. Meanwhile Pitchfork's review mentions the following:

Communion’s biggest hit thus far, the high-gloss anthem "King", attains a kind of formal loveliness not witnessed in this genre since Madonna’s "Get Together" almost a decade ago.

I don't think that's true.. there's always a token pop album they love.. NME used to love Madonna.

I keep going back to this album for some reason.

They must have done something right.

I'm still in love with this band and album. I don't listen to it ALL the time but a few times a week and when I do, it is soothing and makes me dance my head around and tap my feet and all that good stuff. Personally, I'm all about it and think it's pretty damn great for a true debut. Plus I wanna marry Olly and I don't care what anyone says about it either ;). I give the album a very solid 3.5 stars out of 4

My feelings exactly. Not original but solid 3.5 out of 4 stars. The entire album is flawless.

I like it a lot. Why does everything to be "original?" Is Adele original? Is Beyonce original? No and no.

I didn't say it has to but when I express how much I love this album, people immediately come in chiming "you made it seem like it was groundbreaking" and I'm like "no it's just refreshing to hear a solid pop/dance album with good melodies, vocals and a style that reminds me of the straightforward songwriting style and production of the pop I would listen to"

I'm actually freaking out about tomorrow

I think Communion is already one of my all-time favorite albums.

I totally thought of Savage Garden, too. I'm glad there is no Truly, Madly, Deeply-type ballad hit here to get them stuck in that rut. They just have to avoid sophomore album slump. They've been performing a new song called See Me Now which sounds really good.

I'm seeing them Saturday and I'm excited. Have fun Mensch!

If I see you I will say hello, I think I'm gonna try and get up close too... I don't know, I'm usually pretty reserved though. Do you think it will be a full show? I know they have been doing sets at festivals and they were opening for Ellie Goulding until Olly got sick... I think Webster Hall is their only real solo US show.

So... is Olly your typical thin twink with a big dick? :smug::jerkoff: Bottom, I'm sure.

He does the worst fashion photo shoots. :lol:

Well he looks like a total bottom to me and I'm sure it's a matter of time before he goes completely hypersexual and maybe even porn!!!! We've all seen the DESIRE video. He wants a gang bang.

He's sooooo cute and totally a bottom which works fine for me lol. But seriously, I love his voice and that album STILL gets regular play from me. I'm ready for some new music and hope their next album holds up!
