But the hype did effect your opinion of the album, iYup, it just did so negatively. I had the same reaction and hated the album most of the year as a result, but finally came around to it once enough time had passed.

Yeah, it did, but I managed to suppress that negativity enough to hear the album on its own merits (as much as possible), I think. It was a huge effort to do so, but it can be done.

I may be giving myself too much credit, but I think that I am able to shut out much of the hype surrounding albums. When I first heard Merriweather Post Pavilion, for example, I was determined not to like it on account of a senseless contrarianism. As I listened, though, I had to admit that the thing was pretty damn strong. The only consequence of the massive hype surrounding it for me was that I listened all the more attentively, which is always a positive thing, I think.
senseless contrarianism is why i avoid pitchfork. because I naturally want to hate anything they like.

Finally got a chance to listen to listen to this in full the other day...such a good album. Bit of filler, as can be expected from a double album, but the highs definitely outnumber the lows. Intro, Midnight City, Reunion, Raconte-Moi Histoire, Claudia Lewis, OK Pal, and Steve McQueen are probably my personal faves.

Oh, and Disc One > Disc Two.

I can't decide if I'll listen to it once now, or just wait until next week. Decisions, decisions.

Am I still an asshole if I talk about this?

Or is that factor irrelevant?

I personally am interested in hearing opinions, as I am on the fence about buying it.

Oh, absolutely buy it. If I had any disposable income whatsoever, I would. The poor Frenchman needs our help.
