I am really excited for this album. I hope it will rock.

On first listen it was kind of a boner-killer. I guess because it's not how I'd hoped it'd sound in my head. I wanted it to be more raw and noisey and less upbeat and smooth. But upon further listens, I'm getting excited again. I'm glad I listened to it. That way I don't show up on prom night with wild expectations only to have her cry when I pull out and cum on her thigh after two minutes of arhythmic pumping. Maybe now we might actually have some good sex, 'The Eternal'?

I can say that I'm not a big fan of some of Thurston's vocal stylings as they do have a bit of a 'Sonic Nurse' vibe to them (and I did not care for the overall vibe of that album.) I can say that I AM a fan of the fact that it sounds like there will be a nice pacing to the album. I noticed some 'A Thousand Leaves' melodies in there too, although at a somewhat increased tempo. Some more 'Sonic Nurse' type melodies as well. But very little 'Rather Ripped.'

'Sacred Trickster' is a Kim song (which surprised me) and sounds promising. I kind of like the whoa-oh-ing in 'No Way,' is it? 1:18 to 1:21 is a total Wipers riff. Like, the opening of 'When it's Over' off of 'Youth of America.' 'Anti-Orgasm' sounds like it might be one of my favorites.

Oh, and they totally didn't look to black metal for the lyrics. "Mission Control to brain police" and "I don't want to know who has the highest score" don't quite make me feel like I'm looking through falling snow towards the Welkin... or make me want to use any adjectives connoting the cold.

^ The riff from 1:18-1:21 is totally from Reena too. I'm pretty sure it's a clip from No Way.

I don't know about you guys, but when I heard the montage my anticipation for The Eternal shot into the stratosphere! Maybe I'm just jaded from the fact that it's new music from my favorite band (or it's because I'm one of the few on here who likes RR, EJSTNS, and Goo), but I just don't understand the lukewarmness of the response to the posting of this music.

Sorta off topic: Anyone else think "Sacred Trickster" is possibly the best song title SY have come up with in years?

im completely psyched, dude. Sacred Trickster is definitely a lot better than some of recent SY titles. the song sample sounds awesome too.

it rocks more in a Sonic Nurse way than a Rather Ripped way

The album can be preordered from a trusted local retailer STARTING ON MARCH 24 or directly from Matador starting April 28.

repeater 03.04.2009 02:06 AM

Im a bit confused. Does this only work for in US...?

Moshe 03.04.2009 02:10 AM

I'll try to find out more details.

repeater 03.04.2009 03:11 AM

MARCH 24!!?!!???!!?!?!? AHHH SO SOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's hard to tell from this short preview. It doesn't sound as I expected or hoped for, and it's probably better that way. I really like what I'm hearing: the vocals, the upbeat mood, the energy. I'm even more excited about this album now!

Is it just me, or does the first bit sung by Kim in the preview sound a lot like "Mariah Carey"? Not that I'd mind, I actually like that!

SYRFox 03.04.2009 06:42 AM

I really enjoy that preview. Totally excited for the album now

some clarifications from the nice dudes of matador:

just to preface, the split dates (3/24 and 4/28) are an effort to let the small indie retailers in the US start to pre-order SY BEGN before the offer goes up online. hopefully, this makes folks go to physical stores to make sure they get the LP which is in limited supplies.

1. is this offer only for u.s. costumers?
what we say to this is that US-based online shops like Insound, Other Music and the MataStore ship to many foreign countries.
there will be a special UK offer... announced shortly.

2. what should non u.s. fans (like me) do if they want the lp?
see above.

3. do you get to stream the album if you pre order on march 24?
the stream goes live on April 28.

4. if the uk offer is different, can u.s. fans order it?
same as above. if you have the will, there is always a WAY with the Internet.

5. are "mp3's to follow" will be mp3's of the live LP?
at this point, we are keeping the live show to the LP.

6. is it possible to use paypal on the buy early site?
the MataStore accepts paypal. the sale goes up on April 28.

I think Thurston's voice on this album is again bit mellow.
