Hard to Bear? Just a bit…

I thought that, for this month, i would try to end it with how i started…with The Futureheads!

So, there i was, sat watching the Futureheads performing at Glastonbury (thanks to the red button…), and was shocked to see that they were actually playing ‘Hard to Bear’ live! Now, if you’ve read the review of the album below, then you will have discovered that i labelled this song as the weakest on the album – but i began to wonder if, perhaps it would be much better live…

…unfortunately, it wasn’t, at least it my opinion anyway! Considering how strong the rest of the album is, it puzzled me that the band would choose to play this song live – it just isn’t strong enough. Sure, the chorus is quite catchy, but the music sounds a bit…lacklustre, and i can imagine that, if i was watching the band live, that i might get a bit bored by it!

Of course, i might be completely wrong, and my opinion could be totally changed if i did see the song live…but i’ve not…

…the rest of the set sounded great though, and The Futureheads seemed on top form, which is always good to see!!!

By the way, i did try to find some live footage of the song on Youtube, but unfortunately, none was available, so buy the album and make your minds up for yourselves.

    I think it’s one of the best on the album and one of the best songs by the Futureheads ever. Never heard it live though, unfortunately.

    It appears to be a song that is quite divisive – some people like it, others don’t. I’m still not keen on it but it’s not horrible.

    There is still no live footage of it on youtube or anywhere else and I wouldn’t imagine that the band will be playing it again – or at least, I don’t think they should play it live again…but that’s just my opinion!!
