I do not think it sucks. I've only listened all the way through once, and my first impressions were:

- a lot of the songs could stand to be a minute or so longer, because dudes - you're not The Ramones

- while I don't dislike the last album as much as some other folks, it's nice to hear them rocking out again

- I have a sneaking suspicion the album might not be as good as it seemed to be on first listen; that its energy is masking something ... lack of light? or heart? lacking something, maybe.

But I intend on spending a lot more quality time with it when it's officially out and I have the CD.

Oh, if I get another cat or have another daughter Yoshimi it is.

My summary of FYM threads as they stand right now:

- Stupid US presidential election scandal
- US presidential debate, surely now just incoherent mudslinging
- Iraq war thread
- the iron horse's libertarian pro-gun nutjob thread
- deep hates Obama
- Another iron horse thread surely showing the nutjob side of libertarian thought
- deep hates Obama

Etc., etc.

Snore.

Ah, righto. I haven't decided if I can really be bothered downloading it yet or not. How does it compare stylistically to past work? My favourite albums are Fables Of The Reconstruction, Document, and Reckoning, so am I likely to find it at least somewhat interesting?

oh, gosh. I'd rule out Fables as being similar to this one, since that's such a moody album.

Maybe Reckoning, but without that old jingle-jangle of the Rickenbacker? I don't know. That's a tough call from one listen.

It's barely over 30 minutes in length - you should just download it and zip through it.

I don't believe in multi-word names for pets. Unless it's Mr or Mrs something, because that just makes me laugh.

Damn. Well, I'm curious, so I probably will give it a listen anyway. And barely past 30 minutes? Wow. Did they accidentally slip back into the vinyl era or something?
