has leaked, mmmmm...im excited to listen to it, only 160kbp though.
I really like Intervention, but I liked that before I heard the album anyway. The leak is 160kbs, and sounds "tinny" to me, so maybe a better version will have a few more layers to it. I think that the majority of people will be disappointed, purely because of Funeral. Expectations would be massively high, and it would be nigh-on impossible to achieve a fantastic follow up record. Why the hell they messed with No Cars Go, I've no idea. It was a silly addition to the album.
It sounds rushed, the songs don't flow like Funeral, and so at this minute I'm disappointed...but also relieved that I didn't spend 29 euros for a ticket (it cost me less to see them three times in the past).
the torrent i'm downloading seems to have no seeds
it's just going to stay at 99.3%?
the nice people of DiS saved me
liking it so far, prolly need a few listens though, not as immediate as funeral
I'm not as excited as I thought I would be about this album. I'm convinced I will be disappointed.
on any of the torrent sites, so if someone could PM me too I would be eternally grateful...
It's alright, hasn't given me a boner or anything.
Better than most of the tat around at the moment. But not groin-grabbingly great.
but i know that song, and the others may grow i hope, also only on track 4
sounds like the Village People.
Funeral was amazing, and clearly quite special and inspired by traumatic events in their lives, like a big cathartic response to a lot of horrible stuff. The EP they made before was just a bit average in all honesty, and I expect them to revert back to the way they were before.
This is very unkind. It could be good.
This is one of those few occasions I sound like the old man that I'm not quite.
There used to be this thing of looking forward to an album, didn't there? The excitement's gone now and everyone expects something for nothing. I've managed to avoid hearing the new Bloc Party album but everyone's been talking about it for months. To wait for an album these days seems to mark you out as 'different'...
Am I the only person that thinks this way?
I entirely agree with you.
I refuse to listen to leaked albums. Its like desperately ripping open your christmas presents a week early because you just cant wait any longer.
The quality sounds fine on the version I have.
the sound has suddenly dipped on Track 5
I remember the good old days, when I could look forward to an album, and wait to the release date, without having a clue what it sounded like.
These days an album is barely written before everyone's heard it in shit sound quality. I wish people wouldn't download it. I have done in the past, but I regret doing that, and I will not be doing it again. It's no match for actually going out and buying the copy, and almost falling over with the excitement of getting it home.
Either that, or I'm just not that excited about this album. I agree with what Brainlove says, there is no way they can repeat Funeral, bearing in mind the circumstances surrounding it. That's not to say I won't enjoy this album, but I feel slightly uncomfortable, knowing that such a great album will surely be the peak of a career that's barely started...
That suggests I want Funeral Mk 2.
Let's just say they won't be able to match it.
and you're still really young. Imagine how excited we got when there was no internet at all, just the little bits of info that we slowly got fed by the NME/Melody Maker and a few album tracks played on Radio 1 if we were lucky. Listening to a new album by your favourite artist for the first time without it already having been entirely over analysed and picked apart was a great thing.
It really is good...
Windowsill is definitely a highlight for me
from Merge in America.
£13 including international shipping + it comes with a voucher to buy the album on mp3 and Arcade Fire 'goody bag'.
Is sugesst everyone else does the same. This album sounds good from the 3 or 4 songs I've heard.
I too have done this...
was on their ep...still a tune but hey what can you do.
I think i will get the album, what ive heard so far is awesome.
and probably will for hours while I fail to find sleep.
Report to follow in the morning.
is the highlight for me
the last track is also pretty good.
it's no funeral. actually wait, it's probably more like a funeral.
seeing them on wednesday :)
