    Dull, safe and full of people who don’t like each other much?

    (is a little lost)

    I don’t want to go into lengthy explanations here, Princess – it’s the same as songwriters explaining their ‘lyrics’ when really it should be “down to the individual interpretation” – but the reproduction of the cartoon alludes more to the music, and people’s attitude to the music, then to the individual members of An Horse.

    I like the idea. Hats off for trying it. Didn’t really work though.

    I think it’s awesome. But I have placed myself in self-imposed exile from your site so I didn’t just say this.

    If I’ve got this right, in that website that reviews the reviews, this: “Fire Note Says: Walls offers another competent slice of indie rock from Australia’s An Horse.

    Album Review:
    Australian pair Kate Cooper and Damon Cox, aka An Horse, return with their sophomore album Walls that is another twelve songs of straightforward indie rock. Cooper’s vocals reign supreme over the quick guitar and drum work here as Kate’s likable tone sells each track. The duo once again is able to create a much bigger “band” sound even though they are only 2 person strong. An Horse sound more confident than ever here, which gives Walls a slight edge over their debut. If there are any complaints of this record, it would be that the band plays it a bit safe and never reaches for any new directions. If you were already a fan of An Horse, this won’t be an issue for you but newer listeners still might be willing to reach for something else because there is not much in between or variance throughout this record.”

    …got the highest score. I think I prefer your way of expressing the boredom, mediocrity and unworthiness of this record- they could have saved themselves time and effort by posting a photo of an airport departure lounge. ha ha ha

    or they could do a sideline in writing press releases instead.
