This is their best record so far. For me, at least.

I have that on my iPod! Good stuff.

My ticket arrived yesterday - I was starting to worry. Say what you will about Ticketbastard, but I always have my tickets very quickly from them.

I have no idea what this Crowdsurge thing is. My pricing information showed up in pounds, it said my tickets were "dispatched," the envelope came from Arkansas, and it was a Ticketmaster ticket anyway.

What is the song that the Half Life II verse sounds just it was stolen from? It's driving me nuts.

Listening to it now, I at least get the comparison, as there are dhoegazy elements in there. I still don't think it sounds like My Bloody Valentine, but understand why others may be reminded.

A lot of people have mentioned it reminds them of Heart of Glass from Blondie.

I kinda get the comparison but beyond the dancey BPM and airy, whispy vocals there isn't much that I see the same from both songs.

That's Sprawl II that gets the Blondie comparison, but I agree with you, I've never gotten the connection too clearly. It's there a little bit but, eh.

Half Light II, I have no idea.

I think Beav is just confused and thinks when he hears a nice simple verse melody, it just has to be stolen from something else.
