Happy to say that the album is very good. More or less what you would expect, maybe a touch darker in spots, but definitely in the same vein as the last album. The weak spot is the crappy North/Love Like A Sunset wannabe title track, but everything after that is great. Drakkar Noir is insanely catchy, basically the next Too Young, only with a slower, Toro Y Moi-inspired groove.

For now:

1. Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix
2. It's Never Been Like That
3. Bankrupt!
4. United
5. Alphabetical

Yeah, on atease someone hinted at there being a flac too.

I'm fine with transcode until it's out, I'm probably only going to hear it one more time before its release, if that.

Found it. Haven't listened to the entirety but so far so good. I will need to listen to it a bit before Coachella.

Correction, 71 bonus tracks.



I don't mind a few demos as bonus tracks, but I don't need all that clogging up my iTunes library. Plus I'm about to hit the iTunes Match 25K tracks cap; I'm currently at 21,200 or so.

Apparently there's a limit to how much bonus content I want, because I see that and I'm just like, "no."

There's a limit to how much music you can have in iTunes?

The limit only applies to iTunes Match. I have access to my entire library remotely for streaming/downloading to mobile devices.

There's no cap on a local library.

The "71 sketches" on iTunes is just one long (1:04:27) track. When would I ever find time to listen to that?

This didn't do much for me Maybe I'm just not in the right mood, but I found some of the synths and vocals aggressively annoying, the lyrics pretty crappy. The title track doesn't need to go for two minutes, let alone seven. Aside from Entertainment, SOS in Bel Air (save for the cantcrossthelinebutcantstoptrying bits), Trying To Be Cool and Bourgeois are pretty good. Hopefully it grows on me.
