I'm 100% positive that the "Yeahs" in Digital Witness are inspired by We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.

I still haven't listened to the stream, may just wait for the Autorip from Amazon tonight.

I don't think my pre-ordered CD is actually going to arrive until after the gig on Friday.

Same here. I'm seeing her on Wednesday, so I doubt my preordered vinyl will arrive. At least I managed to hear the album once on the streaming. Also had heard Birth in Reverse and Digital Witness a bunch of times (I'm convinced the latter would fit really well in Love This Giant).

Same.

I also gave it a listen on the stream, but I was fairly distracted at the time. Sounded like it had a hell of a lot of promise, though, and I'm looking forward to a more dedicated listen soon.

Birth in Reverse and Digital Witness would probably be like my fifth and eighth favorite tracks on this album, for what it's worth.

"Birth in Reverse" is the only clunker on the album for me. Didn't like it upon its initial release, like it even less now. I'm looking forward to nabbing this and Morning Phase tomorrow.

That Pitchfork review has some classic Pitchfork moments:

Quote:
But Clark's freak-outs are tidy, modular and architecturally compact—like King Crimson rewritten by Le Corbusier.
Same reviewer that gave Reflektor a 9-something too.

Same. It's strange how often bands pick the song I like the least as a lead single.

Absolutely loving this album. Rattlesnake, Digital Witness, Huey Newton and Severed Crossed Fingers are my favorites so far. I think the latter is her best album closer yet. Going to the New York show this Wednesday.

I'm also on line at an autograph session for her right now!
