I finally picked this up yesterday and I'll have to disagree with shouter. I'd be surprised if it isn't my pick for album of the year in a few months time.

As I listened to it, I kept thinking that it works as a sister piece to OK Computer as they're both perfectly deconstructed pop albums full of great hooks and melodies packaged in schizophrenic song structures. However, while OKC had this grand sense of adventure (I remember feeling like RH was going to lose control and spin off into nothingness the first time I listened to it), Forgiveness Rock Record sounds like a band in complete control of everything going on.

Thoroughly enjoy it.

i don't think i've heard many albums that reward repeated listening as much as FRR does.

Some video of the new stuff I took at last night's show at Webster Hall, NYC, Emily Haines showed up ...

YouTube - Broken Social Scene - Sentimental X's @ Webster Hall NYC 5/7/10

Also took vids of Anthems of a Seventeen Year Old Girl and 7/4 (Shoreline) that you can get to if you click through to my channel. Enjoy!

Thanks for sharing those. I'm really impressed with the quality. Man, Emily is a hot mess. You're lucky to have had her there to sing "Anthems." I've only been able to see Amy and Lisa do it, which isn't quite the same.

So does Feist even turn up on this album? I haven't heard it yet, but it would be an absolute travesty if she had been available and not allowed to sing lead on a few tracks.

So you could say that you were "forced to love" it?

Hah. Ha. Haha. Ah-hah.

When did Bono morph into Kevin Drew...?

Pitchfork: Interviews: Broken Social Scene

Not criticizing. Just making a really obvious (and surprising, for me!) observation.

So I pre-ordered this from Arts & Crafts about 2 weeks ago, received the digital downloads for the album and EP, but the album order itself is still "processing." 2 emails to customer service haven't been replied.

Imma gonna try and cancel this order tomorrow, fellas. This is what I get for supporting a label.

Yikes, no good. I'm actually glad I opted out of pre-ordering from them then, especially after it was going to cost like $13 to ship the vinyl to Minnesota. It's right across the fucking border! Damn Canadians.

Hence the anger over it being still "processing," I believe...but LMP, you should know by now that's what you get for trying to be legit, buying a record and all.

Because he'd already pre-ordered it. Why buy it twice? And, usually, pre-ordering an album implies that you WILL get it either on or around release date. Arts & Crafts dropped the ball, clearly.
