I thought the Coldplay album was boring. OTOH it did sound very 1981 to me.
Extremely boring. 1981 eh? That I don't know.
Actually ALL jewish bands that try to sing songs in english are terrible. This includes all english songs by even shsiya, blue frings, soulfarm, and any other band.
It just sounds retarded. Every song has the words "Soul, Holy, High, Brother, Smile, Light" or some other keyword that doesn't quite sound the same unless it's in Hebrew.
It's all too cheesy for me. That's why the new blue fringe album sucks. Too much english.

I'll just say that your wrong and address one of your points...
"That's why the new blue fringe album sucks. Too much english"
That stings. Let me give you some advise....liten to it again. Shit Hashirim? MOdim? Hello...did we here the same album?
I love you Rosen but CMON?
Wow. I wish I new how to edit comments. That was some bad spelling.
yo sklaro. I got a copy of the gush katif compilation and found some of it quite good. the moshav song was great, the blue fringe song was just about as tight a power pop tune you'll ever hear in hebrew or english. the surprises the white shabbos song 8 lights so clever it made me cry. The heedoosh song is one of my faves (I am biased)and I found the Akiva Gersh song simple and charming. Everything else was just fine, but not mind blowing. Yallah Mashiach sounded very dated.
I"ve been listening to 70 faces for about a month. Its got some great stuff on there, and I feel the decision to use more English in the verses and Hebrew in the Chorus is a smart one. They're playing Martyr's on August 20th. Get ready.
Modim is a great song. Well, to be specific, it's got great music and a great chorus. But the english verses are so cheesy and stupid. for example:
"But it’s a chance for us to taste of God’s completion,
He reaches out, returns our souls each day."
It sounds like it belongs on christian radio. Ridiculous.
But i do take back what i said. The album overall does not suck. Shir Hashirim is actually a very clever idea. But Dovid Hamelech wrote that. It's an exception.
I still think that blue fringe is one of the best jewish bands out there. They just need to stick with the hebrew.

Jewish - Did I ever tell you that I love you? Will Heedoosh be joining them?
Noah - You are entiltled to your opinion. I also prefer the hebrew stuff, but the English is good to. As for 70 faces, I maintain that this is an incredible album. The music is phenomenal, and the lyrics are great. BF are so incredible. You better go to the Martyr's show.
