Haven't listened to this in a long time (several years, probably), and it's working much better for me now than it did the last time around. I've been pretty underwhelmed by R.E.M.'s output ever since they jumped to Warner Bros., but this one is a definite exception.

Ted Leo, below, is not...

 

I'm decided I don't like it other than 2 songs... it's just a bit too bland

yeah, i like a handful of tracks, but it may be his weakest to date (other than the first actual solo record). at least Sheets had a ton of energy.

I actually quite like it, but I agree that it's probably a small step down from previous efforts. I do like it a bit more with each listen, though ... so who knows?

 

Someone put the bonus EP that came with pre-orders up on Oink in FLAC. Haven't listened to that yet but I'm looking forward to it.

well, 2 songs from it.

 

'Ada, put the sounds of your house in a song

Try to be speechless for a minute'

 

Ahhhh you cannot do that to a person. As soon as I saw the top of the album cover I was all over oink.

 

Also, I'm telling ya, give Ted more listens, took more than usual for me on this one compared to his more immediate stuff on Tyranny, Hearts or Sheets.

Tee hee. Jay (the member here) was pulled into some YSI gotcha thing last week. The label said ' The National - Boxer (2007)' yet the insides of the zip file was lesbian porn.

 

Hope the real thing leaks soon.

OK, who is that and should I know?

It's all the tracks from Voxtrot's Raised By Wolves and Mothers, Sisters, Daughters & Wives EPs, shuffled into a full-length playlist. And yes, it would have been a monster album.

Just two EPs is it? I have heard the name before.

:lol Yeah, "Mothers, Sisters, Daughters & Wives" is one EP, not three.

 

Those two are fantastic. The new self-titled, full-length album is good, but (in my opinion) not quite on the same level.
