Dream Lover: good song, awful mixing. It sounds like he tried to combine My Bloody Valentine and Springsteen together and it's just a blown out mess.

But I love the melody and what I can hear of the vocals.

I really dislike this song. I find it to be nearly unlistenable. Dueling saxophone solos, poor mixing, sounds like Dan didn't even know what song he'd be singing over so he rarely seems to be with the melody.

It's infuriating, to me, because with the minorest of tweaks it'd probably be a favorite, but the production and mixing are just terrible as it stands. Like someone in a studio played a Destroyer song over two different early 70s Springsteen tracks all at once.

Still excited for an album, tho.

This song is a horrible, horrible song.


 
It's really not, but I did have to turn it off while I was driving home because the noise was too much. I was hoping it was just the version I heard on the radio, but when I listened to it again at home on headphones, I still found it to be horribly crowded. Since he's still all about the saxamaphone, though, the single still managed to get me excited, even if I didn't necessarily like the song itself.

I just picked up Kaputt on vinyl, and it turns out there's an entire EP's worth of extra material packed onto one side. Keen to give that a listen given the strength of that entire era.

I haven't listened to the vinyl in ages but I am nearly 100 per cent certain that that is just The Laziest River, broken down into sub-titles. It's a bonus track on the CD. Pretty nice

I found my first listen rather disjointed and disappointing, but I'm waiting for a gapless stream to hear it again. It just seemed like a bunch of E Street band tracks and chamber music smashed together without the love and care put into the production that Kaputt had. That being said, there were a lot of really good songs in there.

Well I've dearly loved the three songs I've heard so far (two of them for the first time this morning). I am so so so so so so so pumped. I'm not really expecting it to match up to Kaputt, considering that's probably in my top 10 albums all-time.

I have another dilemma. There is a limited edition clear vinyl being offered through Merge but shipping is as much as the record itself. But if I order it from Amazon shipping is nearly three-quarters less. But it's standard black vinyl. $60 vs $40 essentially. Arrrrgghhhhhh I hate being a vinyl wanker. I don't know why I'm even posting this, I'm certain I'll end up getting the more expensive one

It's much cheaper to be a high-res digital wanker.

I was listening to the NPR stream in the background, so I don't know individual song titles, but there are a few killer tracks on here. My sense is it really picks up on the back half, which sounds a hell of lot like Wild & Innocent era Springsteen.
