FRIGHTENED RABBIT: The Winter of Mixed Drinks <3

New album means a new thread. I have the new album. It's really really fucking good. You can have it too, if you're industrious.

Since when has industrious become an interchangeable word for douchebag?

I absolutely hate the lead single. Hopefully it's a poor representation of the album as a whole, or this will be a big disappointment after the last album.

See, I wasn't a bit fan of it the first and only time I heard it a couple months ago - but I listened to the album for the first time last night and really liked it. It's not as raw as TMOF, this album, but it's still pretty heavy as you know FR can be.

How is it all lyrically? My biggest problem with the single was that it felt way "pop single-ish", and not nearly enough "Frightened Rabbit-ish".

I've only heard one clunker so far - "She was not the cure for cancer". I haven't really given it a deep listen yet, mainly because I've been studying while I've been listening, but it seems as if its all very FR. Including Swim, I think it's very FR.

I'm back... I think, and I'm still alive

I was bored (no pun intended) last night, so decided to come back, did you miss me guys?

well, on topic, I've listened the new Frightened Rabbit, I like the mood of the album, I'm not sure if it is that great but is a good listen, no doubt

i've listened twice now and i am really liking this album. i've actually never heard their debut, so that will be my next download.

as much as i like this album now, i don't know yet if i'll remember this album come the end of the year when i'm listing my favorite albums of 2010.

The last album wasn't their debut, if that's the one you're referring to. This is their third.

They apparently covered Everything In It's Right Place on a Radiohead tribute album that came out a couple weeks ago.
