I haven't downloaded it and if I do I won't give it out anyway. I really just wanted an excuse to use the crying Indian poster. Although I suppose it would be better suited to Dalton.

Well, I thought I'm doing well enough already by holding out for YYY and Grizzly Bear, so I already caved and listened to this one. It's great, and even that is a massive understatement. Can't wait to pick it up. I love Shara Worden. Hers are the best parts of the album.

Yeah, I just commented on that in the Hottest Chicks Around thread. My Brightest Diamond opened for the Decemberists when I saw them and she was a very captivating performer.

Glad to hear that you enjoyed the album.

Please do not go into too great of detail about the album, as I would like to be surprised considering I'm ultra psyched for this.

Thank you.

The entire album sounds like "Cock Crazy" meets "All Because of Cock" meets John Tesh doing the NBA on NBC song:



I think that'll throw you off the scent enough.

I had heard that there would be Tesh influences, yes. But I also heard that parts of the album are reminiscent of Dr. Funke's 100 Percent Natural Good-Time Family Band Solution. The early stuff.

So more along the lines of "Zanotab" than "Teamocil." Gotcha.

I just realized I've never mentioned how fantastic 'Sleepless' from Dark Was the Night is.

It's fantastic.

I'm loving this. There's some seriously epic shit on this album. And I'm sure it will only improve with more listens.

Classic.


Um...I cannot get enough of the rake's song. But like Scumbo, I have not heard the new album.

The one-two cockpunch of Isn't It A Lovely Night? and The Wanting Comes in Waves/Repaid is just wonderful. I love this album.

THIS IS HOW I AM REPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAID!

I've listened to some of their stuff on YouTube and I'm not crazy about their singer's voice. Too boring, flat and droning to keep my interest over several songs or even longer tracks. It's a shame because I really liked the music and storytelling, but vocals are often a make or break thing for me.
