I cannot wait for the record or for the first show: Midnight Saturday at Bonnaroo.

I don't want to get anyone (or interference) in trouble, but the entire album leaked this morning.

If you decide to download, don't forget to support MMJ by purchasing the album June 10th

It's only 128 kbps, so I was reluctant to listen to it. I like my first listens to be in lossless or at least a really high bitrate. I couldn't resist for this one, though.

Six songs in and I've enjoyed every one. "Highly Suspicious" is so, so cool.

Yikes!
This isn't the MMJ I've grown to love.
What's with the weird falsettos and the funky soul beats??

Double Yikes!! Maybe it needs to soak in.....

I've heard the title track which is amazing, the instrumentation is very MMJ, but Jim James sounds so different.

You barely recognize ole Jimmy on this one.

I still haven't listened to the whole thing, though. I got as far as Sec Walkin before I decided to wait for better audio quality.

Just think, if this was 1987 we'd be buying the cassette and it would sound like shit.

I'll be back, I've got an evil urge to go download something.

This is not Wilco. This is not Sky Blue Sky.

Why do you have to quote Lance's Mom everywhere you go?

Seriously, give it a rest.

I can't wait to torrent this cracking album.

There's only falsetto dominating 2 tracks, the title track, and the piss poor "Highly Suspicious."

After that it kinda settles into a nice progression from Z.

There is a high quality rip out there.

I may have jumped the gun a bit. While the first 3 songs are 'different' from classic MMJ, I agree the album settles into more of the MMJ style. I can't help but think of some of the songs sound like mediocre Flaming Lips knockoffs. I still think it's nowhere near previous efforts. Having seen MMJ live and enjoying most of their studio stuff, I really had high hopes for this record.

Highly Suspicious is horrid. I think that originally made me think WTF? on first listen.

Obviously this album is going to separate the true believers from the people that want to put MMJ in a box. I'm liking this a lot better than Z, which had a few great songs but as a whole was rather unsubstantial.

Highly Suspicious is awesome. I love that the band isn't afraid of recording a WTF song that is going to alienate people.
