holy shit, i need some new pants!
It's not on Indie torrents.
but rumours are it's a transcode, but i believe it's easily up to it's standard of 192kbs it says it is.
i'm too scared to post it on IT or Oink in fear of it being a transcode. :/
Plus you can't post it on IT because it's on Universal, I think.
and converts them to a higher one without the quality actually being better, generally so they can post it on a torrent site.
Its much better than A&E indicated.
I hated A&E at first but ended up completely loving it. Brainlove was so right about it.
brainlove et al slated the new pw stuff unbelieveably after "that" bloomsbury gig, saying loads of stuff about how poor the album would be etc, then AandE came out and it was used as evidence for their incorrrect kneejerkreactions.
i know it's cuz you all love him that you were disapointed, but it was obvious that you couldn't judge the man(boy, whatever) on singles/live material, and that you HAD to wait for the final product.
buti read your (many) threads and posts trying to kill any postive feedback from new pw material*
*apart from "stars", which everyone seemed to love instantly.
listening to this album patrick seriously has the last laugh. i'm loving this.
I think 'Stars' is one of the weakest tracks on this.
It's a good album, but not quite as 'pop' as he seemed to be hinting at before he recorded it.
I was just chipping in my tuppence worth.
the process of converting it to a .wav and then back into a .mp3 would actually make the quality worse, i can't imagine how that would sound.
Is such a wonderful pop song. Jubilant horns, squelchy synths & dums that sound like hand claps, what more could you want?
I've just started listening, I'm EXCITED
I thought there was some promo copy somewhere that some Patrick Wolf fans had heard but wouldn't leak because of him being against his music being file-shared.
im banned from libble. (wankers). much love.
not sure where i would put it with regard to lycanthropy and wind in the wires. I found it on At Ease web, the radiohead fan site.
arrghh yes. this has made my week. :)
But only listened once, so that statement will no doubt change.
It's just exactly what I expected, there aren't any songs or moments that surprise me or make me think "wow!" like with his other records.
But I'm also picking up a whiff of vacuity.
We'll see, eh.
it's happier than I expected, and very different from the other two albums. Who's the woman he sings with on Magpie (I think) with?
You might want to work on where your attention is focusing...
does anyone have an invite to it or oink? would be lovely..
and some of the album live, twice. Magpie is even better than I could have imagined. Beautiful. But The Magic Position still makes me want to be sick and tear my ears off. Why Patrick, WHY?! I am looking forward to the album. I'll just skip that track. What number is it?
Preceded by the best song 'Overture' and followed by the worst 'A&E'.
By a long way, but that doesn't bode well for the record as a whole. I've had on repeat on my iPod all day, and still I can't get into it.
This is the guy who created Lycanthropy, and Wind In The Wires. This is the guy who wrote Paris, Teignmouth & The Libertine. For me, this is depressing to hear.
This should uplift me.
sounds like 'come on eileen' to me...or at least the strings.
the rest of the album seems really good- no lycanthropy but sill great. Augustine, Overture and Magpie are the best in my opinion.
I'd say that was probably the worst track on the album.
I'm quite liking this anyway. It has moments of brilliance, but some bits are quite noticeably weaker... A&E really does get better on every listen though. It's an awesome song.
skips at the end. do you reckon its meant to do that?
