Well yeah, that's why I said "depending on track lengths of course" lol

Some bands manage to squeeze in 20 songs of short length.

Whereas bands like Pink Floyd would struggle to get that many lol.

Hallelujah!! Such a great song. Should have been the lead single. The most agregious omission I’ve seen from them.

Also, you still in NZ?


fair point. I suppose 16 is mild versus that. Tbh I think after the iPhone thing, they should've just embraced the role and done whatever they wanted.

Maybe it is what they want, though?

And yeah I'm in Queenstown now. Flying to Singapore soon though.

Kea are undoubtedly the baddest thing to ever happen a bird. Nasty, beautiful, cheeky. Proper birds them.

Hope you got some tranquility there. Killer walks abound.

Don't worry Jarvio, the joke is on me. Because I'm not nearly funny enough.

You missed the joke in kiwilad’s post, and answered it seriously. He was joking.

I was thinking of it from an artistic standpoint, but from a business standpoint it makes no sense to relegate the new album, which is an ad for the tour, to secondary status. It would further emphasize the past when what they want to do is sell the present and future.

If only SOI had Mercy then it would have been a great album. . Yeah I went there just for fun. Why didn’t they just keep it on Bomb and we wouldn’t have to have these conversations over the last 13 years.

Putting the JT30 recording would be a nice bonus... you're grossly overestimating the popularity of the live recording on its own.

Nobody would buy the new album just to get a potential JT30 live recording... but if you were on the fence, it would be a nice bonus.

That thing was a total gangster. He let me get so close, too. But he wasn't like, out to get me. He didn't give a shit that I was there, that's what was so cool about it. It was almost like a dog.

I had many feels, though it was more of an exhausting thrill due to weather conditions. It was raining, all I had was a trash bag poncho and a non-waterproof camera.... and it had just snowed and was right between 3-7° all day.

So I did what was natural and took all my clothes off on the boat (but the pants) and shielded my camera as I got right under the water falls and got drenched wet.
