I stumbled upon this today... as if the ten year anticipation wasn't enough, these clips just validate how perfect this album is gonna be... the wait needs to end!

guitarguy211 10/16/12 12:02 PM

I think I'm gonna hold out for a full stream. So hard to tell what the songs sounds like from short clips.

...that being said I may cave later.

EDIT: Made it a full 24 hours. Now I want this even more.

bradsonemanband 10/16/12 12:10 PM

can't wait to pick this up

Zack Zarrillo 10/16/12 12:11 PM

Album is INCREDIBLE

Must wait for full album, all these teasers are making me go insane.

duritzfan13 10/16/12 12:21 PM

Now I'm confused as to how the song "Rusted Machines" is going to be. From the teaser they posted on YouTube (of the chorus) to this (of the verse), they sound completely different! I'm interested in seeing how that heavier verse transitions to the chorus.

Rysker6 10/16/12 12:22 PM

I'm resisting the urge, I've blasted "So Cold" to the rafters and still can't get enough. I can't wait to get this thing, so freaking excited that they're back and this good.

Hope the pre-orders are shipping out soon!

anamericangod 10/16/12 12:29 PM

I need this in my life.

Polaris 10/16/12 12:37 PM

every song sounds so huge. YES. Cannot wait.

sweetforever 10/16/12 12:43 PM

Yeah I want this album.

rustedmachine 10/16/12 12:49 PM

I tried to resist hearing these and broke after like 3 minutes

Capulet 10/16/12 01:23 PM

sounds great

Austin Davis 10/16/12 01:37 PM

Not the biggest fan of the first two songs released. Glad to hear tracks 3-12 sound a lot better.

Same! I'm seeing them on the 26th and would like the be fairly familiar with the record.

xburningcoffin 10/16/12 02:23 PM

Resist the urge! These sound horrible in terms quality, I know they are going to be great songs but I only could make it through 4 of them, hold out til the vinyl reaches my hands!

kazuma_ootaro28 10/16/12 02:57 PM

"Way Down" sounds good.

brandonisstupid 10/16/12 03:37 PM

I hate the way they've promoted this record. A couple full tracks and then clips from songs? Are you kidding me. This record would have been hyped up so much more if they were still on T&N.

jwoody 10/16/12 03:46 PM

Rescue Trained/Janie...enough said.

barelyReid 10/16/12 04:38 PM

sounds rad!

SuNDaYSTaR 10/16/12 04:53 PM

Oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes!

Supernova 10/16/12 05:03 PM

Never been into FSF that much. I have the Moon Is Down but have only listened to it casually. Dude that works for me was playing the album at work the other day(he downloaded the leak I guess) and I really dug it. I may get this.

Although I agree t&n would'be hyped this a bit more, 2 songs, a video, and a bunch of PR order bundles are pretty standard. And the clips always come out a week or two prior, whether on amazon or allmusic.... The fact that Chris is back in the band is a well known thing is enough promotion in itself and rise knows that.

absolution 10/16/12 08:30 PM

Mix sounds better???

Anthony Sorendino 10/16/12 08:30 PM

I've never listened to anything by them, but I've heard a bit from Dashboard. These clips sounds awesome, though.

Hahaha. What was the last album T&N promoted or sold?

Unclear Lies 10/16/12 10:45 PM

I don't know what it is...but some of the vocals on certain songs just sound autotuned/melodyned by a monkey

vinnie_9 10/17/12 12:07 AM

Pretty excited to pick up my first FSF album from the store!!!

It seemed they promoted that new album by The Wedding a lot

InfiniteArms 10/17/12 12:39 AM

Well, that was a mistake. I should've waited until the full thing is out. :|

valencourt 10/17/12 03:41 AM

I'll have a better listen once the album is out, but I'm really not feeling the vocals on this one, sadly. I only made it through clips 2-6. The vox just sound sort of... forced, and overall - not what I expected from this reunion. I do, however, want to like this and want to give it a fair amount of time to digest.

The Wedding, Anchor & Braille, Children 18:3 were pretty good releases. Plus, Matt & Toby (of Emery) sounds like its going to be pretty good.

T&N is not even close to what it used to be IMO, but its still got a handful of albums I really like.

TheLetGo 10/17/12 06:12 AM

Has anyone been able to figure out why the show in Boston has been canceled? Can't find an official statement anywhere.

Exceedingly strained.

drudo182 10/17/12 07:02 AM

Won't be back in town until Monday so if I get my pre-order early, it won't matter. Ugh.

Anchor & Braille? I just meant from the standpoint that Further Seems Forever were always punted pretty well by T&N. I understand that what they've signed lately (aside from Anberlin/Emery side projects) has been rubbish, but I remember back in the day when I would get promos every day for FSF records.

Probably a greatest hits Anberlin album.

kevinrguinn 10/17/12 08:49 AM

I love the guitar work on this album. From what I hear from these previews, it's giving me a Clarity Vibe. Do I think it could top Clarity from JEW? No, but the instrumentation and song structures seem like they can lead to the sound of that album.

i think it hasn't been promoted as much as we all thought because this isn't by any means chris' full project. i know they've already announced that the few shows listed are the only ones in 2012 and who knows how many they'll actually play in 2013.

Wonder if anyone bought that.

theagentcoma 10/17/12 01:42 PM

Def picking this up next Tuesday.

Bongi5788 10/17/12 06:06 PM

Its a solid album front to back...Way Down is my favorite.

Weird. That sucks since the other east coast dates are still a go.
