My local record store (in South Australia, couple hours from the city) didn't have it so I bought it off the interwebs, still refusing to listen to the stream. It took THREE WEEKS to arrive, and got to my door last Friday. Worth the wait, even if it took a few years off my life. YOUR REVIEW DID NOT HELP REDUCE MY ANTICIPATION. If I go bald soon you might hear from my lawyer.
Anyway, to the album.
1. Not a bad track. Desire may be my least favourite at the moment.
2. Too much blood is my early favourite. So much to like, and different to a lot of their stuff in subtle ways.
3. Much less calculated than American Slang, which is still good nevertheless. helps me enjoy this more.
4. May just replace On The Impossible Past as my AOTY. Hasn't yet left my car CD player and won't anytime soon.
EDIT: 5. '59 Sound is still better.
