Already listened a few times, children (was busy watching the Survivor finale, and therefore away from boards). Glad to see that people seem to be enjoying it as much as I am. Must say, it really feels vindicating to have been one of the earliest supporters of maybe the best band in the world since 2007. In my opinion, of course. Wonder when they'll finally fuck something up...?

Well, that was anticlimactic.


And I love how the big indie music guru was watching Survivor.

Ha. I am not sure how that doesn't compute, but it's all good. I'm a big fan of sport and competition (just in general), so there you go. I pay at least as much attention to sports as to music. I also avoid casinos.

Your best joke in a while there, Laz.

I'm still working on the album. Just now got to "Straight in at 101" and heard a line about a cock. I don't think they're playing badminton though.

I'm not going to argue with a Shuttlecock homage.

Shuttlecock and/or Lance's Mom.

"Heat Rash" probably reminds me of their previous work more than anything else so far. Still got a few tracks left, but my knee jerk reactions with these guys are reliable. So it's fairly safe to say that I'll probably wind up holding this album with as much or more affection as I do the previous two. But I'm noticing it's a little light on the female vocals. That makes me a sad bastard.

Just wait for the Miserabilia-esque shout in There Is a Flag.

Thanks a lot, spoiler alert. That shout is one of my favorite moments in their catalog. Song is starting now.

When my friends and I are playing DJ Hero (or when we were, for a week), every time we could trigger the Euphoria button, we would scream, "JEWPHORIA!!!!" It was very, very, very satisfying.

Alright, so I'm done with the first listen. Definitely darker, like Laz said, and certainly showing a bit of maturation in both instrumentation and lyrical content. It's quite obviously a very good album, evident after just one listen. But it'll take a while before I can really give it the Lance's Mom treatment and, ahem, put my finger on it.

All I'm going to say is that it's really great, but that Dave Newfeld is, at this point, sorely missed.

I'll probably reserve my judgments on the production until I hear lossless or the vinyl.
