Weird album title for them. I'm more used to their rambling, vaguely philosophical titles. Those Who Shall Not Take Care Will Be Innocent, Those Who Shall Take Care Will Live Forever.

I couldn't be more excited for this album. Haven't listened to the snippets at all and will be keeping it that way until an album leaks in full. Most importantly, this means an EITS tour. So, yeah. Spring can't fucking come soon enough.

And, although The Earth is Not a Cold, Dead Place is universally known as their masterpiece, as I sit here listening to Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Live Forever, it strikes me that it might be my favorite of their albums. I've never been able to get over their use of dynamics, and this album exemplifies that with sharp moves from the quietest of guitar picks to the most metal of rawk (mainly thinking of the beginning of "Greet Death" here...hot damn, what an opening song). I love that usage of the clip from The Thin Red Line too. Plus, I mean, I do have a tattoo of the angel from the album's cover on my forearm. Anyway, it just seems to get at me harder than The Earth is Not a Cold, Dead Place usually does.

I like all 3 albums so much that it's not even worth me attempting to decide what order I prefer them in.

1blo00d, FYI, the clips are only 30 seconds or so, and are all from just really random segments of songs, so you can't even hear anything significant melody wise. They're almost completely pointless, but were fun to hear once.

Good point. Each album is near perfect in its own right.

Yeah, I believe it. I'd just rather not hear anything. Haven't heard any of the R.E.M. snippets either. I prefer not listening to clips or singles of most artists prior to albums leaking or releasing, since they're presumably meant to be heard as one piece of work.

Wow, the packaging for the album is pretty sweet.

Why the hell does the UK get the album a week before the US? Friggin' tiny islands with crap taste in music.

Finally listened (you can stream here if you're at work):

Pitchfork: Forkcast: Explosions In the Sky: "Trembling Hands"

The first half is definitely new sounding for them, which is cool. Second half is familiar, yet very satisfying as always. Can't wait for the album.

So, Scums, you're not OK with a Random Music thread, but a Random Post-Rock thread is peachy? EITS is probably the most popular DI band, and yet...

I'd make a thread for them myself, but I'm not as hardcore as you guys.

Yeah, that packaging is pretty cool. Think I'll go ahead and preorder so I can get the colored wax too.

Song was decent, albeit quite short for them.

The packaging, on the other hand, looks fantastic.

Take Care, Take Care, Take Care leaked a couple days ago. Does it deserve its own thread?

Ugh, please don't tell me you listened to the shitty 192 rip of it?

I did not. I don't usually listen to leaks before their release dates.

Indeed. Has it even been streaming yet?

Good. Not that I avoid leaks or anything, but I can't stand listening to something as detail-intensive as Explosions in 192. FLAC is preferred, but too space-consuming, especially on my iPod. It's just sounds sooooo clean in FLAC though.

I don't know the differences between FLAC, Lossless, V0, or 320. I do know the difference between 320 and 192, though.

I think most of my music is in 320.

I listened to the EITS leak, and the album's pretty damn great. Not going to get into bitrate wank; I think we all know 128 and below is pretty bad, but 192 has rarely been problematic for me.

Also, the new Long Distance Calling is even better.

I realize it's been leaked for quite a while, but you can officially stream the new Explosions in the Sky album on their website now:

Explosions In the Sky

Comes out next week, so I may just wait, but it is very tempting. Regardless, looking forward to it!
