Avocado, Baby is too good. I wish more of No Blues rocked like that track.

As far as albums go:

Romance Is Boring
We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed
(Sticking Fingers Into Sockets; great EP)
Hold On Now, Youngster
No Blues
Hello Sadness

Their best work strikes that precise balance between rocking/energetic and dark/thoughtful. Everything else veers too far towards perky or brooding for me and ends up a shade worse because of it.

I actually think my favorite track on this album might be "What Death Leaves Behind"...not sure.

Los Campesinos!



This shit is fucking wicked. Worth the wait. The booklet contains run downs on every track by Gareth and Tom as well as lyrics, and it came with a poster and a CD. Fucking love these guys.

Oh yeah. This was a great get. Really happy with the packaging. Did you get the live album? They mentioned it at some point, but I didn't get it in my package.

Damn it I want that booklet. Are you referring to the Heat Rash that came with it? Cuz that might be available separately.

I didn't get the live album, no, but I bought it digitally when it came out so no big deal. The booklet with lyric and production explanations (as well as lyrics) is indeed the Heat Rash... Gareth sent out an email explaining why there'd been a delay getting them out and threw Heat Rash in for the trouble. We also got a 10% off code for anything in the LC! store. There was nothing I want so if someone wants my code let me know... dunno if that Heat Rash is available separately. Considering it only cost me $36 Australian including shipping I'm extremely pleased.

I got a code for the live album in my copy of the CD. I wonder if they'd intended on shipping it with the set, but ended up just shipping the physical CD in that plastic cover? Who knows?

My pink vinyl was sitting on my front porch when I returned from a 6-day trip last night. No idea how long it sat there, but the outer envelope was quite soggy. Everything inside seems OK.

I got the vinyl, the CD, and Heat Rash. No download code, but I had bought the live album download earlier in the year.

Did anyone get the live album on CD? I thought that was included with some purchases?

That is a great looking LP. Very nice.

As far as album rankings go, I had been convinced that We Are Beautiful was tops, but after listening to Romance Is Boring a few times recently, I might have to go with it instead in the top spot.

Mad at myself for waiting this long to get the album, enjoying it quite a bit. After the last album, that's quite a relief (I was really disappointed with that one).

Nope. I think it was supposed to come, but I never received it. Or Heat Rash.

Romance is easily my number one.
