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.

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....

Smallpools album is great, even though we've heard half of it already.

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.

Sad he's leaving. TGI is one of my...

Kind of has an MCR Danger Days feel musically, chorus especially.

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.

Fair enough, thought you were guessing stage locations.

This is a huge area compared to last year.

Get Hurt is an unreal song.

I think it's hard to do a top 10 so closely after an album came out because people hesitate to put new songs on it. I can confidently say that will be in my top 10....

That sucks, hard. I really hope it turns up.

I'm pretty sure they make quite a bit more than that per show they do know. And other overhead costs will come out of it.
