I love this album so much! I'm glad I didn't have to buy it.

Downloaded the leak, loved it, deleted it, and pre-ordered the album on iTunes today. Color me excited.

I'm wondering if the record store here will have a CD copy of this.

Well, at least we have that much in common.

I'll definitely be buying a physical copy once it becomes available.

i have tried to get onto this bandwagon, but i can't find the step stool. i only listened to "my year in lists" and "we throw parties, you throw knives," because two songs was just about all i could handle. i imagine i have something wrong here, because i find it hard to believe there would be this much raving about this band if those two songs are representative of their stuff, because i thought they were truly awful and annoying. somebody prove me wrong, tell me what else i should check out before i am forced to just agree to disagree regarding that band.

Indeed I was, and now I have.

I definitely don't have the now-familiar feeling that whatever new LC! I'm hearing is going to be the best of the year, but it was solid. Haven't really listened, so I guess the jury's still out as to just how much I like it (and I do like it). I had no problem with the album-length, kind of hyper, shoutier stuff. The first two LPs were pretty low-key, to my ears, and I never really understood that particular strain of anti- or not-entirely-pro-LC! chatter, owing to my personal taste and listening habits. To each, of course, his/her own. This, though, seemed a less natural/comfortable record, to me. I think that I liked pretty much every song (really loved "In Medias Res" sosososososososo much, and the one where he talks about ships passing in the night; closer and, uh, the really noisy one were baller enough to remember, too; these sadly official titles make it sort of tough for me to remember what the hell the songs are called, since I blush when reading them), but that however many minutes of this seemed to add up to a whole slightly less than the sum of its parts. I'm reminded of how people generally seemed to feel about Challengers, by The New Pornographers. That record worked crazily well for me, but that's because they downshifted into baroque-sounding "power"-pop, which is all kinds of good for me. I think that I like this a LOT more than most people liked Challengers, though. I just kind of feel where they were coming from.

Anyway, I'm only trying to break it all down...as much for myself as for all y'all. I really liked it, but with more reservations (ie, a few; either Kim has trouble singing in tune or Aleks really phoned in this one) than I'm used to having about an LC! release. That's my thesis, I guess. I just didn't have that "OMFGQQ IT'S A CLASSIC!!!" reaction after the first listen, which I found to be sort of disarming. That's an experience to which it seems I've grown quite accustomed.

I don't understand what the point in waiting was. I was under the impression you wanted to own it and have it in your hands, listening to it in the optimum situation.

Just because they allow it to be streamed shouldn't change your stance. And now, surprise, you're underwhelmed.

I don't think that my waiting for an authorized stream really had much to do with what the songs sound like, unless the band changed something in the interim. Definitely not underwhelmed, either. Also, I must admit that I'm a bit bothered by your telling me A) what should or shouldn't change my stance, and B) that I have changed my stance. On leaks. Which this is not.
