So I thought i'd have the mental strength to hold out until my vinyl is delivered at official release but....I gave in.
Downloaded a 320k rip today and this is incredible stuff.
If anyone is awaiting an order like me and wondering what to expect...don't worry this what you want and a lot more.
The live recorded instrumentation is used more extensively than I first expected it to be but it really shines through. My other first impression is that its amazing how he is making such a multi-layered and multi-textured sound come together. At times its overwhelmingly complex but it maintains a unity of feeling and groove. Impressive stuff.
Oh yeah, the Thom Yorke track is totally strange. I think its more of a mood interlude - pretty spooky but great. Not what you might expect. His voice is sampled and messed about with....but in a good way.
I'm gonna shut up now. Sorry!hahaah
Anyway, anyone else heard it through yet?! Thoughts...
