It's really too bad Chillwave is dead. I think I would have enjoyed this album.

The bonus 7" comes with its own download code, which is cool. Doesn't work yet, though.

Front to back, I think this is stronger than their previous one, and I think I listed that as my #1 album of 2011 on my year end list.

You did. I'm really impressed with my first listen. I have no idea what the sites out there giving relatively mediocre ratings were thinking (aside from DB's "chillwave is dead" commentary).

I really don't get it either. I didn't read the review but saw that Pitchfork gave it a 7.4. Definitely surprising.

Popmatters' score was virtually identical. Then again, sometimes I think they wait to see Pitchfork's score before putting theirs up. Tinymixtapes was even worse. Allmusic and Drowned in Sound like it a lot though.

I ordered the album from the website yesterday, so it still counts as a pre-order and it says it's a pre-order item in my receipt. However, I'm kind of worried I won't get the 7" single and/or the green clear version of the LP. What frustrates me is that the Sub Pop website says "you will receive" both of those things if you pre-order yet the paragraph then goes on to say that your chances of getting them are better if your order sooner. Well, don't promise stuff like it's guaranteed and then not hand them out...if they had said "you may receive" for both of those things, that would be acceptable. Otherwise, I'll feel like I paid about six bucks more than buying it from Amazon with nothing extra to show for it.

And if I don't get the green Loser Edition vinyl, I won't be gutted. Really want the 7" though.

They usually update the posts when they sell out of the LEs or run out of bonus goodies. I think you're in the clear.
