I'm gonna try to listen to this shit today. Hoping it's as good as the choir's been preaching.

My bank account is dictating that I must wait until payday tomorrow to buy this.

It's $7.99 at Best Buy, if you have one of those near, Cori.

I've gotten NLOTH and Embryonic at Best Buy on their release date for that price. Last time I was there it was Interpol's newest being advertised or something, so I wasn't all that interested.

I'm surprised Asthmatic Kitty didn't single out Best Buy as well.

The new Belle and Sebastian is only $7.99 there this week as well.

If it's that cheap at Best Buy, it's probably $9.99 at my local store. I like to buy stuff there, but as I'm already planning on going to Target on Saturday, I can pop into the Best Buy because it's right next door. Yay.

Not very impressed on first listen. Some good stuff mixed in with some annoying stuff.

That's how I felt on first listen a couple weeks ago. I won't be listening to it again until I have the lyrics in front of me though, which I figure could make a significant difference.

Finished my first listen about 20 minutes ago and thought it was brilliant. Still trying to form more concrete thoughts on it though.

After the EP, my hopes weren't super high, but I like the album quite a bit. I feel like Impossible Soul is far to long for what it is though. Everything else is great though.

There are no lyrics with the CD.

Unless they're buried somewhere in the annoying artwork.

But I absolutely love it. I Walked, Now That I'm Older, Get Real Get Right, and Vesuvius are the stand out tracks for me at the moment.

I also picked up the new Belle & Sebastian for $7.99 but haven't listened to it yet.

I'm sure you've probably left for the show by now (sorry, long day at work), but it was the saddest merchandise table in the history of concerts. Only a few CDs. No vinyl, no posters, no tshirts

Adding to Dalton's merchandise questions, were they selling physical copies of All Delighted People? I thought I remember reading they'd be selling them at the shows, but I may be mistaken.
Actually, now that I think of it, they did have some vinyl, but it sold out before I got there. I think they had All Delighted People on vinyl (and also on CD) and also Michigan, Illinoise, and BQE on both formats

And he ended the main part of the concert with Chicago, which was pretty wicked, the came out for an encore of Concerning the UFO Sighting... (stoked he played that) and John Wayne Gacy Jr. All of which were awesome. Only three, but they were a good three. Could've played a little something from Michigan for me, but I guess he and I arent as tight as I thought we were

I think I might have been satisfied hearing the new record plus these three (John Wayne Gacy being one of my favorites) now that I know I could expect that but you're right, it would have been a bummer to not know in advance and have different expectations. I've been trying to score a ticket for a sold out Denver show but now maybe I won't stress out about it. Sorry you were bummed but it sounds like it had some high points. I've never seen him at all.
