I hope so. It would be more difficult to craft a compelling narrative to carry a chronological sequel.

Whether the change is for commercial or writing reasons, I'm content provided the final product is solid. The spacing will also reduce market saturation, which stands to hit a fever pitch if the...

Don't forget this tour featured O'Brother as well, though I've been kicking myself for missing Brand New / Thrice / MWY for years.

Man, this would have fit perfectly in that movie. Stephen seems to really be tapping into his 80's sensibilities on this album.

Ready for this. Between FANSD vinyl and a new record, I'm ready to have Relient K back.

I can respect that. Doesn't seem to be the direction they're taking it, sadly.

I agree with this sentiment. It's silly that the whole galaxy would be interrelated, even among the swath of characters that make up the movies.

However, I think it's fine for Rey's heritage to be...

Do you have a source on that quote? That's the best evidence for that title I've heard.

The phrasing of this news post makes it sound as though Dunkirk and Nolan's new film are separate projects.

Very excited to see Nolan work with Tom Hardy again, and the premise is enticing.

I've been meaning to get into Radiohead and have a Google Play card to cash in. If I already own OK Computer, where should I turn next? I can't decide between The Bends or Kid A.

Prepared to enjoy this, but the album title and artwork don't exactly feel inspired. Still, I absolutely loved The Quiet Life, so there's no reason to doubt this will also be great.

Great insight on the connection between "Beggars" and "Disarmed". Both are fantastic songs, but I had never recognized the narrative link.

As an album, I do prefer Beggars, but its connection to...

I have always wished this album would have been recorded after the production style change from Alchemy. While a fantastic record conceptually, the raw sound they adopted thereafter would have suited...

That transition into Dorothy was fantastic. Credit to Daniel Davison for his skill in directing this!

I'm in the midst of giving a new viewing order a shot (IV, V, I, II, III, VI). It's been fantastic to anticipate a Star Wars movie again.

There is some talk around the internet about Disney giving...

Source on that Mark Lee quote? Would love to read anything more information from him.

Elated at the possibility of RK jams on the level of F&NSD again.

I would argue that the interludes are the strength of the album. Every song feels fully-realized, like it has room to breathe. That aspect of F&NSD links it to MMHMM as well, particularly through the...

Hard to put a finger on what changed - perhaps production - but Mike's vocals sound markedly improved over Dead Throne and 8:18.

Unfortunately, this isn't the most musically interesting track, as...

I appreciate the overall theme, but the lyrical analogy of this song is a little drawn-out. Some degree of eloquence seems to be sacrificed for the sake of incorporating the idea - social media...

Their live show is still pretty compelling, but my interest in the band has started to wane. They've yet to recapture that perfect balance of polish and grit from the Zombie EP.

Agreed. Wish that more bands would do this. Insight into the songwriting process is fascinating to me.

Their last two albums have been almost oppressively dark. Strangely, 8:18 felt darker than...

Please let this happen. I've kicked myself so many times for not listening to those bands when that tour first made its rounds.
