You should see Cori's collection of 78-speed records from her high school days.

Vintage stuff.

Yeah I really don't listen to leaks of albums I really want to get. I'm waiting for the "real thing" on Tuesday. Best Buy $9.99

like the album very much so far
only listened to it twice and liked it better the second time around
think i was expecting too much the first listen

don't want to sound like I want to be obtuse here, but the album it reminds me of the most is actually Around the Sun

of course the tempo went up, the songs are shorter and there's 67 times more guitar
but - overall - the melodies and lyrics resemble that album more than any other in my opinion

Hollow Man and Sing for the submarine are my favourites so far
probably because I think Stipe is sounding more interesting on those 2
Mr. Richards, Man sized wreath, Living well is the best revenge, Horse to water (can't get that one out of my head) and Accelerate aren't far behind though

7+ / 10

I'm with Zoots and still haven't heard anything outside of the single.

The reviews have been pretty positive in general, actually.

Thanks to all the money I spent on various cold medications last week, I might have to wait until payday this Friday to pick up this album and the Muse CD/DVD.

I've given the album 3 listens and although I find it fun and good, it really isn't anything special, a few great songs but don't think I'm gonna buy it.

Anywhere streaming the album or a few songs? I'm a bit weary of buying this one blind...
