Anyone else got this today? It's only the third time I've bought a record on the release date (Kid A, Rehearsing My Choir are t'others) so I was pretty excited about it. At first listen it's not as instantly amazing as Blacklisted or Furnace Room Lullaby but I'm sure it's going to be one of my favourite albums of the year in a few months so I won't overanalyse it now.
What I can discuss is the artwork. Good art really is the best argument against mp3s and this just shows that perfectly. The cover is brilliant and every song has a beautiful drawing to go with it in the booklet too. The whole package is very very lovely indeed. Somehow reminded me of Vitalogy by Pearl Jam even though it's nothing like it. Greatness though.
