I downloaded this and first listened to it like forever ago and not even sure why given that I didn't care too much for the first one.


But dayuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuum. This is the rock record everyone has been (or should have been) waiting for. You might as well just kill yourself if "Nights of Wine and Roses" doesn't excite you.

Actually, I'm sitting on the edge of thinking the songs are awesome and thinking they should be great in the exact same way as the hold steady's constructive summer. However, I feel that way about all the tunes, and that's the only hold steady song I can tolerate. So they've got one up on them for that, I guess. Or I could just talk my brain into stopping this futile trying to compare them to other bands thing, especially since its not even in a musical sense.

Fun, fun record. It really lives up to it's moniker.

But what's up with bands not having this:



Japandroids
White Stripes
Black Keys
Yeah Yeah Yeahs

All these good bands w/o bass players.

Me no dig no bassie. bring funk.

Me too. Seems like there's a lack of that these days, but maybe I'm just not looking in the right places. Regardless, enjoying this album.

Yeah, this is great. This is some hot, hot shit. Glad I bought it. The lyrics are pretty cool too, particularly on tracks like Nights of Wine and Roses and Younger Us. "Remember that night you were already in bed and then you said "fuck it" and got up to drink with me instead". Love it.

My only problem is that Continuous Thunder doesn't end on a scintillating solo or chaotic breakdown. The fireworks are cool at the start of the record but for an album that doesn't let up for a second it's kind of a bummer of an ending. Otherwise great track.

Oh, my other problem is all runs together. But no biggie. That'll sort itself out over time.

I think Nights of Wine and Roses and Adrenaline Nightshift are my favourites.

These were the bonus tracks, and if someone could tell me if I've labelled these right I'd appreciate it:

Heavenward Grand Prix (original)
Art Czars (original)
Sex and Dying in High Society (X)
Shame (PJ Harvey)
Racer-X (Big Black)
Jack the Ripper (Nick Cave)

I can't even tell, to be honest. The album certainly doesn't suffer for it.

Cobbler likes a punk album. Well, I know what I'm buying next.

Did the definition of punk change at some point?

Apparently. Don't worry, I didn't get this memo either.

I read this, walked away, and for ten minutes could not figure out what put revolution rock in my head presumably from nowhere.

bump for the album of the year.

i keep listening to it and it keeps getting better and better.

these guys are really fantastic players, they fill up SO much space.
a simple idea, executed brilliantly.
I love David Prowse's kinetic, melodic drumming, and how Brian King lets the high notes on the guitar ring while he simultaneously thumbs out bass parts on his guitars. He's got a lot of amps on stage when he's playing, it would seem, and he uses them to fantastic effect.

got tix for PFork friday just to see them (it's a dreadful festival and location, but i'll "suffer" those conditions to see this shit live!). Poor me.

and i haven't even mentioned the best part: the songwriting.

i'll wax effusive on that the next time i bump this thread.

I checked this out on Spotify yesterday. Was not expecting to like it so much.

If :fuckyeah: could be turned into an album, it would sound like this.

Celebration Rock is $2.99 on Amazon MP3 today, for anyone who still needs or wants to hear it (e.g. me).
