It's kind of the best kind of a third album.. a bit of all the best stuff. Lots of great melodies, cool rhtyhms.. a lot of really catchy stuff and some neat pulses and rumbles and textures. First listen is never the ultimate deciding factor, though. It actually sounds more like Doves than their last albums, whether that is good or bad.

"the leaders of the free world are just little boys throwing stones
and it's easy to ignore till they're knocking on the door of your homes"

and cujo, darling, do you have the same name when you are complacent, carefree, and laid back, or does it change to something else entirely?

i got it from a torrent hub called OINK, i imagine by now it should have managed to infiltrate other filsharing networks..

here's the first song...
http://s38.y ousendit.com/d.aspx?id=1FTNZGXDPUY9I2DW2Z41SD6VOR

it's really good.. in the war of the britbands releasing vaguely similarish albums i think this one wins (over doves, coldplay, oasis, british sea power)

I can't believe this was the only thread on this album. Ahh, the weakness of the modern day internet and "leaks", people are more concerned with talking about downloading the album than actually listening to it and discussing it.

Anyways, I think this is far and a way their best overall album. Certainly more consistant than their previous two. I haven't listened to it nearly enough, but I absolutely love the title track, Forget Myself, Station Approach, Picky Bugger, An Imagined Affair, etc.

I like this album a lot. I finally picked up the one CD of the three I was missing (Cast of Thousands), and Leaders of the Free World is definitely my favorite of the three.
