I think this should be discussed in Bang&Clatter!

I will discuss after Sony sends me a copy!

I think I like "Outsiders" for the wrong reason

Listened to it plenty in the couple weeks I've had it since it leaked.

I like it. Is it better than the first? Only time (or a few more listens) will tell.

I really wanted to watch them at ACL last weekend, but the scheduling god wouldn't allow it. Wilco was playing at the same time and, honestly, that was a pretty easy choice.

I'm eagerly awaiting this one... haven't listened to the leak (I'm one of those people who like the anticipation and going to get the cd in the store... )

Unfortunately, it doesn't come out until Tuesday in the States...

Email or PM me ( if you're interested.

I found this album rather disappointing. It wasn't bad, in my opinion...just shockingly pedestrian, is all. I dunno. Time will tell--familiarity, after all, breeds acceptance. In a week, I might have no choice but to change my mind...

Still, it definitely failed to live up to my not-all-that-high expectations on my first five or six listens. Still love 'em, though! "Do You Want To?" kicks my anus.

I actually really like Elenor

This album is not as good as accessible as the first one, IMO, but maybe it's a grower!

I liked the video to 'Do You Want To' but not the song.

The rest of the stuff I've heard is good but it sorta passed me by.

Will definitely pick this one up sooner than later, though.

i like the new stuff, but overall these guys are singles hitters, to use a baseball analogy.
no homeruns on the album, IMO.
