Where would sell this? I have no HMV or record stores in my town... =[
Would ASDA sell it?
You could try ordering on play for next day delivery, or download. PM me? xxx
with the postal strikes but ZING that's a ray of hope.
Now my lunchbreak will be fun! :D
you've got a lion costume. Aww are you ok little one? xxx
but I'm going to buy it after work incase it hasn't turned up and palm the extra copy off to my girlfriend when it arrives
2 UK bonus tracks! yay!!
God this album is good. I love it.
I didn't realise JEW were on of DiS's 10/10ers
Just bought it...waiting for the Bonus Tracks =D
and I can't get to the city until Saturday...
my first listen. Basically, a really good pop album, and I don't think there's anything on it I don't like. That said, at the minute it's certainly not as good as any of the last 3 albums for me, but I fully expect it to grow on me so that might change. I miss the epics and Mark Trombino's production though. Also, whose idea was it to have 3 successive songs with the same chord progression?
Best songs so far - Big Casino, Electable, Dizzy.
when you go through the tracks that were on the leaked demos and compre them to the final track listing, they've taken all the slower, interesting songs off and left it full off similarly-paced pop-rock songs that all sound a bit alike. I've gone from loving this to absolute boredom in a week, the only songs I think actually stand up against their back-catalogue are Big Casino and Dizzy, the rest are nice enough but really skippable.
It's crippled by the production. When Firefight should be rocking out it just sounds clipped and weak.
and i didn't like it until about play 20. am now on play 17 of Chase this light. waiting for the ball to drop.
produced the second Bled album. Worst thing to happen in the history of music, two brilliant artists completely fucking everything up.
but doesn't stand up compared to older stuff, and I don't need another 20 listens to know that. 7/10 at most.
My friend who goes to Uni in Nottingham posted it through my door today with the note 'heard on the grapevine you couldn't get it in Grantham... call it a later Birthday Present'
I'm so blissfully happy.
Went past there on the train to Hull a month ago and saw a couple making ot on a bench
I have nothing else to add
and her boyfriend! :)
Aww bless your friend Kayleia!xxx
Maybe. I seem to be at train stations an awful lot. Despite me paying £70 for Clarity and SP a few years ago, this one means the most! Nowhere sells it in my town, log online, try and buy it from itunes, boyfriend finds it on limewire, crashes, buy again from itunes, corrupt file means I get 4 songs and then FINALLY Trist posts it through the door.
This reminds me of how much I used to love Jimmy Eat World. Clarity and Bleed American remind me so much of being at uni.
You won't regret it! I'm on my 10th listen and I am in love.
Here It Goes, it makes me dance like an idiot. Also, I can't understand why Be Sensible didn't make the proper tracklisting, it's really bloody good.
My main issues with the album remain:
1) the production
2) no standout lyrics, unlike all the previous albums
3) lacking in emotional intensity for the most part
Still, I do really like it, the more I listen to it. I'd give it 8 out of 10 at the moment.
Gotta Be Somebody's Blues reminds me of the stuff on Futures a lot, it's really good.
'the word collision makes an awful sound'
or something like that!
very much. I have got the new dashboard album as well this week (it's been out like two weeks) and this is much better! There are no little gems on Chase this light though which is unfortunate. :(
but after 3 listens I think it is very, very poor. There's just nothing to it. At all. Every song sounds the same, wistful and limp.
After Futures, what a crash. :'(
i've heard the album, I'd quite like to hear the demos to see what they're like... I don't suppose anyone could upload them or link me to them?
to hear everyones views ... i have every other JEW album and i still dont think they will match album 2 & 3 ever but il plod off to HMV or Virgin to get this ... a band i'll always like and by people opinions sounds like another middle album to me
