I'm listening to the album again kind of tipsy right now. And it's still awesome.

Yeah totally. Nurse and Rather Ripped both kind of bored me at first. The Eternal was love at first listen. That's unusual for me.

HOLY SHIT! I can't remember the last time one of their records impressed me so much on the first listen. Is it because this record is so good, or is it just more instantly accessible than others? Time will tell. For now, I'm just really psyched to hear it more and more.

And they keep breaking new ground! Sure, there are some familiar moments here, but there's a lot of new stuff, even after 28 years and how many records?

I think it's that this album is least from lazy. Theres a lot of energy, real energy.

It probably helps that it was truly sunny and warm for the first time of the year, after an exhausting overlong winter. And it was so hot out that it threatened to actually take off my hoodie (which I'd be reluctant to do at the mouth of a volcano). On my first listens, the sun is finally setting. This album and this day is giving me a bit of a breath of much needed relief, actually, mixed with an anticipation/excitement I havent felt in a long, long time.

I haven't listened to it, but I can't help feeling that people are getting over-excited about it or something. I might listen to it later.

Nah, it's actually pretty good. I wasn't overly excited to hear it.

I wore the same Black Flag shirt I had on yesterday. I forgot about this until I came onto the board and was convinced to do the pre-order.

Yeah if youre coming here for reviews at the moment you might find it overhyped. I'm glad I heard it before much of it though because I am easily influenced by hype.. and I genuinely enjoy it.

It's the Rather Ripped-effect. Whatever they were going to release next people were bound to like it.
Then again, it's certainly enjoyable upon first hearing.

Ditto. Calming the Snake is a lot better in this condition. Not that it was horrible before, but I find myself saying Fuck Yeah a lot more this time around.

Not enough love for Sacred Trickster and Calming the Snake in this thread. Both of which really rock.

The more I listen, the more I love it. Lee's songs are incredible. The "energy" throughout the whole album feels pretty real ha ha!
great morning.

Yes, I think this'll be a record that sounds better the more you listen. (Whereas Rather Ripped sounded really good on first listen, and less so on each subsequent one, haha.)

Lee's songs are the worst songs on the album. "What We Know" is lame. "Walkin Blue" is.. decent.

my opinion is that it's yet another great addition to their discography and whatever any other so-called sy fan thinks doesn't bother me at all, that's their problem, not mine
