"This is a Flag" is really good, yeah. We're all probably going to agree on that. I just don't necessarily think it's the best thing they've ever done or even close to the best thing on the album.

"Plan A" is this album's "End of the Asterisk," only not quite as bad.

I meant to listen to the album today at work, but decided to wait to hear it on better headphones the first time through. I've listened to the album's title track 4 or 5 times today already though, me likie.

It's a fun indie spazz-pop album for sure. But sometimes it's so fun it makes me feel old.

Suppose it's better for you to feel young again than to feel the young again.

I'm assuming Pitchfork will throw this review up on Friday. Any thoughts on what they'll throw at it?

Hold On Now, Youngster: 8.4
We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed: 8.3
Romance Is Boring: 8.6(?)

The critical consensus is about equal to that of the previous records.

It will get a higher rating than either of those two. I'll bet they know they foolishly underrated Hold On Now Youngster.

No way this getting less than an 8.9, though I will still be surprised if it doesn't get over 9.0

Also, fuck them for not having the review on Tuesday. It's the most important release of the month, let alone the week.

Never got around to hearing it today, but I also listened to There Are Listed Buildings. I love both it and the title track. Look forward to hearing the rest. I'm glad that the supposed "burn out" I thought I had on them seems to have been nixed by having new material.
