If you don't go into it thinking you're going to see a movie (or even a bunch of narrative music videos), then it's pretty cool. Some segments work better than others, but there are some interesting visual complements, and there is a throughline with the journey of the motorcycle cop. It's meant to be experienced just like putting on the album, but with window dressing. That's it.

Yeah, Linedrive was awful.

See, if the Lips tried to do a similar project, it would probably be cool.

NOOO!!! MY BIKE!!!

Linear was interesting but not something you can watch over and over again which I guess makes it a perfect extra for a one of these special editions the more I think about it...

Fucking Best Buy!! Their computer said they had 30 in stock, and they couldn't find them anywhere. I didn't even get there until after 1pm. What kind of fucking store doesn't have their New Releases sorted out before they open on Tuesday?

I'd go to Target but they're charging like $5 more.

Assholes.

Wow, I definitely need a few more listens. That was a lot to take in just now. The album gets off to a great start, keeps up that heavy atmosphere throughout. The drums sound consistently kickass on the thing. It works well as a whole piece, definitely (there are a lot of specific sounds and ideas repeated throughout multiple tracks)...with a handful of standout individual songs. I just need to hear it some more.

So, yeah. I'm not going to reach a final judgment yet.

Except I will say that I already like it better than Mystics. The artwork for the thing is awesome, too.

So apparently that $16.99 version is 2CD+DVD, which apparently is just the reg. album spread over 2 discs, plus another disc of DVD audio. Also there's a 24-page hardcover book.

Not bad, but not worth over 2x the price of the single.

Picked this up at Best Buy tonight, and it was indeed $7.99. Quite the steal for one of 2009's heaviest, trippiest, most fascinating records.

Not the best for driving, though considerably better at night, and Silver Trembling Hands is a great song for any purpose.

Smoking is commencing now, and the album will begin soon enough after. I'm sure I'll have something to say when it's finished...
