McGuinness has probably got all the copies hidden under his bed.

The guy doesn't know what he's talking about. Aftonbladet is a pure tabloid rag - shit journalism in it generally.

I think we have to remember lost in translation here too - it's difficult if English is not your mother tongue to sometimes understand all the subtleties and complexities of other languages.

These journalists' ears will differ from native English speakers I'm sure - but it's their opinion and they are entitled to it - they only heard the album once and it sounds to me that the album is going to be great judging by all this.

Can't wait to get my first entire listen.

Those two egos? I don't think so.

Well, I guess I'll miss the listening party tomorrow and go to the film festival in France as planned.
Sorry for you to hear that Sirena.

Good question.

Yes, everyone is different. My friend who's got an incredible ear for music can pick out hits or great songs within a minute or two of listening to them....thats just him. I on the other hand have to hear a song a few times to get everything absorbed. For me, the intial listens are to kind of get a grasp of what I'm hearing. I tend to try to compare them to other things that I've heard about the band or other sounds that are out there and try to make sense of the stuff. Its kind of like when I read a novel or watch a great movie. I'll "get it" for the most part on the first take, but its not until I read or see it a bunch of times that I get all of the nuances and subtleties that I missed the first time.

I can't tell you how many books, or movies, or songs I heard the first time and said to myself "Meh...it was okay" But then when I heard or saw them again they finally hit me. They finally sank in and I got immersed in the thing or started to get all of the little pieces that I missed before.

Again, not everyone is like that. But it seems like many of the reviewers seem to be alluding to the fact that this album is so deep and heavily filled with so many subtle layers of sound that it may take many listens for the songs to open up and breathe (no pun intended)

Theres a few reasons why I feel like I need to listen to a song over a period of time before I can decide whether I like it or not...

- My ear doesn't catch all the layers in a song at first. For example, in Boots, I didn't catch the guitar piece that edge is playing in the "Let me in the sound" section. Once I did, that part sounded infinitely better to me.

- If a song is catchy right away, it might end up becoming boring pretty fast as well.

- Sometimes I can't relate to the lyrics in a song right away. Perhaps a week after my first listen I might experience something that reminds me of the song, and then all of a sudden the song is way more impactful when I listen to it the next time.

These are valid points too. I agree
