Interesting comment. I skip Hold No Guns unless I'm just letting it play through - not a fan, kills momentum, but I personally feel Haunted is one of their best songs... ever.

Fair enough - I just see it as an additive process.

The first 5 songs and track 10 are the keepers for me, there are a couple more I can enjoy but don't love, and a few I could leave behind.

I...

I feel like people who are turned off by Everything's A Ceiling and Good Help are just generally not flexible with their acceptance of the wider spectrum of influence.

It's the band's 8th album,...

I can understand how you might say that - but also keep in mind he probably had a lot to do with all the auxiliary percussion on this album. It's rhythmic perfection in my opinion. Like all the songs...

I'm shocked you don't dig You've Haunted Me All My Life - I think it's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. I instantly felt that.

I'm personally all about this. There's maybe two or three songs I don't instantly connect with, but the rest are just so wildly good and immediate winners for me.

These arrangements are just out of...

Hot damn, I love this. The production is so great. Such beautiful guitars... and everything. Ah. Love this band dearly.

Trying really hard to like both these songs and I'm just not there... yet? Both just kind of have a singular vibe, which is OK, but nothing is blowing me away. Neither even comes to close to being as...

They are most certainly only live members.

In an interview, the sentiment was along the lines of... "Now it will just be three of us and we will augment the live show with touring members. Should...

I back this hard.

I really love this band at every point in their career, but Trans- has it all. I haven't ever heard another record that resonates as much with me. What I find incredible is the...

If I hadn't read all these comments, I totally would have totally forgotten that the quality of album is objectively determinable.

I mean, this is the same band that once had had a first single that was 8 minutes and 35 seconds long. I don't think they are so concerned about sticking to convention.

When they think a band can push out a new album in 6 months, it's pretty unbearable.

Glad that interview above exists, because I couldn't handle all the people in the previous thread who actually thought they would have an album out this June.

Downloading Logic X doesn't remove the previous version.

At first after I downloaded X, I kept using the older version for the same reason, but after you start using X, it's hard to go back.

Although these are well shot, there are a few videos on YouTube in which you can hear more of what the keyboardist and new guitarist are playing.

Black Sun is a major jam. Can't wait for the single...

How can it possibly be an album release date?

They've only just finished touring, (though I don't doubt they've been writing to some extent on the road).

There is no way they can pump out a follow...

Arguing about which album is better or worse is like fighting about favourite colours. Silly.

The great thing about this band is they've never once tried to replicate a previous album. They always...
