I think it would be VERY interesting if we could go back to the days surrounding the immediate leak of X + Y to see what some of your guys reactions were.

I'm guessing some of you that are rashly and ridiculously overrating this new album based on early listens were saying very similarly positive things about X + Y. And now it "sucks"...

We will see...

Oh yeah, and the Gwyneth Paltrow influence really shines through here on a lot of the new tracks...

X&Y was trashed from the beginning around here.

Again, so?

The funny part is that, looking back at actual, professional critics' reviews, you'll see that the albums were actually praised on release, and probably still would be. It's only the hipster wankjobs that have turned on those albums, and there are a large number of them here at interference, as you well know.

Probably not; I didn't start posting on a regular basis here until 2006. But rest assured I was off weeping quietly somewhere.

I am going to make a strange comparison but this album has a strange uplifting energy that I have only felt in one other song...Tear In Your Hand by Tori Amos. I can't explain it but I feel some connection between that song and this album.

Looking through that thread is quite fun. I rather enjoyed Mikal's post here:

Wow, a 9.5 out of 10 from DaveC.

I might be wrong, after all. Seems there were several people on here who loved it upon release.
