Spun the debut a few times when it came out and just didn't enjoy it at all. Looks like it's time to dive back into it.

A friend whose opinion I really respect told me to go for it again since he is loving Humbug. This is the same guy who got me into YACHT, Cut Copy, Phoenix, and many others. He's got good taste.

Well shit, man. Maybe you should just go with Favourite Worst Nightmare to start, since you've already heard the debut. If you remember, the debut is pretty much just a punk record...albeit with some very clever lyrical witticisms.

On Favourite Worst Nightmare, they fleshed out the music a bit more (got a new bass player)...it's darker, heavier, and a better produced record, too.

And that has been pushed even further on Humbug. Although I'm biased, of course. I love everything the band's ever done. So, yeah. Good luck anyway. I hope you dig em more this time around.

How does the leaked Humbug sound, everyone?

It's solid. I still like their debut more, but Humbug's a good album and shows their progression as a band.

I listened to most of it again.... Not bad, but I've heard much better from this year. It doesn't grab me like their older stuff.

Different to their old stuff for sure, but the music is still too workmanlike to grab me I'm afraid.

I was just now checking to see if there were tickets left, and there are, and my test word was "mammary."

I love Crying Lightning and just ordered their album. I liked their last one, can't wait to hear the new one.

Hmm, someone sent me the album yesterday and I listend to it a couple of times, but I must say I'm not convinced. At this moment I think Crying Lightning is the best track on it, IMO. There are some tracks that seem to grow on me but the rest .... I don't know. I think I enjoyed their previous work a lot more. But maybe I'll change my mind with time. Nevertheless I've ordered the CD and will give it some time.
