Been legit waiting for this album since the day SSTP leaked in like August 2006. Hope the first single drops soon. I have total faith in these dudes back under this moniker, even though Water &...

Album version of "Water Slides" is now on Spotify and iTunes... real drums in the chorus, thank god. They should have spared fans the heart-attack yesterday by specifying that Pitchfork posted a...

There are still viable options out there, thankfully. But without any high-visibility name brands like the Galaxy series having slots anymore, I see Google's push to scrap microSD and herd everyone...

I'm still using an S3, but Samsung instantly dropped to near the bottom of my list for my next purchase with this announcement. Nothing but bad news, other than the UFS storage: dumb...

Longtime PT fan here who's followed his solo work with some interest. A few thoughts:

- It's definitely poppier than Raven overall, but it's still more obviously rooted in 70s prog than I was...

Completely agree. Very slow start but the second half kept my attention at least. Will reserve judgment for another couple episodes.

Sure haven't seen much evidence of it in the music I purchase and listen to, but I'll be on the lookout.

Regardless, there are a bunch of records I cherish from the last 10-15 years whose vinyl...

"She Spider" is pretty solid. I don't know, I just feel like most of the tracks from "Symmetry" through "She Came Home" are kind of vanilla pop-rock in the context of their whole catalog. This band...

Frengers was how I got into them, but it's so front-loaded... first three tracks are pure sex, then there's not much that stands out for me until "Comforting Sounds." It took me longest to get into...

Radio edit of "The Night Believer" can be heard here starting around 1:23:00 (time-sensitive, not sure how long they keep these up): http://radio.nrk.no/serie/christine/MYNM55002315/02-02-2015#

Probably because they take so damn long between albums, each one seems to feature a fairly drastic progression from the last. If you like the new tune, I'd suggest starting with their last LP, No...

Awesome site; infuriating results.

I mean, it's bad enough that modern recordings have been ruined by the loudness war when all people ever had to do was turn the volume knob up (or, alternately,...

I've said for awhile now that this show lost a little something starting around Seasons 6-7, but I swear... to this day, a Rickety Cricket appearance in an episode absolutely guarantees quality.

Totally agree with this. The redbook CD standard is perfectly fine for consuming/listening to audio (recording is a different story, of course). Given identical masters, I will take CD over vinyl any...

Could you link to the speakers or give the make/model?

I've found that with "real" speakers (bookshelf or monitors), the room and also placement within the room can be a significant factor. Make...

The live version of this track has been floating around in high quality (released by the band, I believe) for almost three years, so it took a few listens, but I'm absolutely floored now that I've...

I'm not sure anything short of a perfect, career-defining double album can make up for the preposterous amount of time this record has taken, but I'm stoked anyway!

Been using it exclusively since it came out. No problems with MMS pictures so far, though I don't know that I've tried group messaging yet.

So glad to be rid of Hangouts. That thing will never...

Yes, but what use are the PSD files without the program? I'm not concerned about the cloud storage aspect.

I mean, I get that you can export your content to "flat" files like TIF or JPG and those...
