Yea, when they played Chicago it was a 400 cap and I don't think it sold out (and that's with HTL as support).

I really liked the last album, it caught me off guard. But I'm not as hot on these...

The Miley commercials they keep playing are making me REALLY not want to watch.

The article brings up some good points, but I don't look at this like "ripping you off". $10 a month to listen anything you want, anywhere you go, is hardly a rip off. I'm not paying that expecting...

I agree. As someone who plays guitar though, guitars can be very personal to someone (and also easy to carry).

Anyways, I still hope they find a lot of this. If they have good records of serial...

Take your gear, or as much as you can, in the hotel with you. It sucks but you've gotta do it. Or at least should.

Sucks to see stuff like this. Hopefully some of it turns up.

How do you like AM compared to Rdio? I know you've liked Rdio's mobile app for a while (as do I).

Me too. Unfortunately, I'm guessing Apple's catalog will be better in the long run. It also has the upside of tying into my existing music that's on my phone. I'm running both now and trying to...

I'm surprised, since it's one of my least favorite on the album. It feels more like a single though than something like Avalance or Portugal.

I don't think there's anything on the album that'll...

I feel like if you never heard the EP, then the inclusion of Go Down in History doesn't seem as weird. It's a good track but because of that feels like a bonus song. The album could have easily ended...

I tried the second they went on sale and didn't get them. Hopefully tomorrow's better, but Lolla after shows tend to sell out right away.

Almost instantly, in most cases. If you want tickets be prepared to buy them right when they go on sale. Even then...it's tough.

At least that's how it's been the last few years.

Thanks. Sometimes the ones that don't connect right away have more lasting power.

Didn't connect or like it much after my first listen...I'll give it a few more tries though. I liked Vessel quite a bit.

I like this album a lot after 2 passes through it (I know, not much to base off of). The funny thing is I love "diggin' up the heart". If that's the weak point...well I guess you can see why I like...

This album doesn't have the high notes some others have had for me, but it's more consistent. I think it's exactly the album they needed to make (even if it's not my favorite).

Good album overall.

Sounds very influenced by Nirvana...I can dig it. I'm not a huge fan even though I've followed them since the beginning. This is good song though and makes me excited for the obviously upcoming album.

Agreed, 100%. I figure Rdio will eventually go away, but I'll continue to use it every day until then. It's totally changed how I access and listen to music.

My fiancé uses Spotify on her computer...

I've used Rdio for what, 3 years now? The mobile app is great IMO. It stumbled a little with an update last year but that got fixed.

The desktop side isn't as good, but that's maybe 1% of my use....

I'm not sure how much bigger they can get. They're 4 albums in and have been playing for what, 7-8 years? They already full clubs and play late on festivals.

I agree on your main points of the record, but maybe not as much on past records. I really liked Wasting Light.

I like the record for what it is. I wasn't huge on Subterranean my first listen so I...

Awesome. Just looked the other day and realized I've been using Rdio for over 3 years. Time flies but I still use it every single day on my phone.
