I'm not ready to judge either. So far I am not disappointed in the slightest, but I also think there may have been some missed opportunities here, which doesn't reflect on the album, but on the band, and the expectations of fans. I think it would have been interesting to see them take the Portoshead direction and make an album that truly sounds nothing like their previous work, but still seems to fit perfectly into the discography.

I'm talking shit though- I'm just delighted beyond belief that the fucker actually came out, and that I'm listening to it. This is objectively awesome in every way.

I just don't really get what people have waited 22 years for. I mean, the band has written some good songs, but really, since Loveless there have been dozens of MBV-influenced bands who have made records on par or better than the new one.

They're really a polarizing band. You either love everything they do or just don't get why using thirty different pedals to play a generic power chord progression suddenly makes you the greatest band ever.

Some of the songs were solid, but if you held a gun to me and asked what the third song sounded like, I have no idea what to tell you. It's a weaker Loveless because the melodies aren't as memorable, the production isn't as good, and the riffs are pretty samey.

Props for them finally releasing it, I'm just left wondering what we are getting excited about.

Wow. I mean, to each their own, but did we hear the same album? The melodies are amazing, the production is epic, and the riffs are varied and complex, imho that is. I'm shocked at the general "it ain't no Loveless" reaction to this.

I think the first two tracks and the last one are my favorites at this time.

Anyone have opinions on which physical copy to buy? I'm a little torn.

I am imagining all the shoegaze music fans around the world freaking out over the new MBV release at the same time all the american football fans are freaking out over the Super Bowl. Do the shoegaze fans paint their faces, leap off of their sofas with arms raised, red faced, knocking over snack bowls, screaming in triumph so loud their neighbors can hear? I'd like to think so.

Hah.

No, they don't. Also, we don't clog the driveway with family campers, cars, and motorcycles so that the one person living in the duplex with a fucking job and car can't find a place to park, parks on the street, and is late for work the next day because he was blocked in by the plows. Fucking assholes.

... Cars are still there, haven't budged. I think they're hibernating. Meanwhile I'm so angry I'm starting to pop hemorrhoids.


MBV > US Football. Simple as that.

My sympathies, and your equation is of course correct.

lets get this out of the way now the new record is nowhere near as poppy or immediately satisfying as loveless with that said i still think its a good record. It's def more of a grower upon first listen i was a little disappointed but the more i hear it the more songs unfold into something interesting. favorite song on it for now-only tomorrow

Are electronic elements in a rock band still meant to make them innovative?

I like the record more than Loveless and much less than Isn't Anything or anything from that era.

I was kind of thinking the same thing. And the comment about tryjng to introduce drum and bass made me look at the record differently and experience a weird Dig Your Own Hole-era 1995/6 déjà vu feeling.
