Has anyone given in and listened to the leak?
but I don't think anyone should. Quality is teeeerrible!
The songs are great though.
Will hold out 'til then...don't want to be put off beforehand by an awful quality rip.
I will probibly just wait for the CD, I've got masses of new stuff to listen to to get me by until then.
and it sounds ok... i guess no match for the real thing. It still sounds great!
it's not really 224kbs.
SLAYS. Best release of 2009 hands down.
sometime soon, right?
Someone please link everyone if they find it.
so so so good
the powers that be have closed a highly efficient net around the leak.
but it sounds really compressed, loud and horrible. I think i'll delete it and wait for the real thing.
But it is pretty lovely. Although it kind of makes me agree with Pitchfork's review of Dark Was The Night, that a lot of indie is a little gray at the moment - as joyful and great as this album is, I don't find it wildly exciting.
Listening to the album I thought, "this is nice... but it's not capturing me." I mean, despite its upbeat nature it does come off colourless to me. I haven't been able to listen to the album in one sitting yet, I just get bored or fall asleep (I listen before bed sometimes). I'm sure it'll end up growing on me or I'll just move on. Or maybe I'm just not in a folky mood at the moment.
this is so colorful and wonderful. Nothing dull about it. It's like a kaleidescope of awesomeness
I guess I shouldn't have said colourless, not exactly what I meant. But enough defending myself, I am really starting to enjoy it (a day later). I blame listening to some of grizzly bear live at the brooklyn academy of music with the brooklyn philharmonic orchestra.
i'm not going to listen to it until i can put a needle on the vinyl.
Goodbye, rest of the night.
But this all makes me very excited.
as in "songs vs shitty rip". the music is nice, only halfway through listen #2, but there are some really fantastic moments here (two weeks, dory, ready able, about face) all fantastic upon first listen. however, the rip is shitty and i'm resigned to the fact that i deserve it b/c i stealed it. i r buy vinyl copy when available tho
to where you can preorder the vinyl? tried warpmart but they don't have one up yet..
with the low quality rip I feel confident saying this is going to be my favorite album of the year.
