aNoteworthy that Pitchfork's review of the reissue gave the album an 8.4
so fuck pitchfork but who got the demos of this album? anyone else spend the 5 bucks? totally worth it IMO, yes the album versions are better and more refined but some of these demos sound almost Postal Service with the electronic drums, and the more lo-fi recording gives it a feel very similar to We Have The Facts, but less cryptic and more catchy. i think they're great.
Didn't spend $5 but I did steal them from the internet! And I'm glad I didn't spend $5 haha, in my opinion they're super boring and don't sound at all like Postal Service stuff, sure it's Ben's voice over electronic drums but they're mostly drum machine loops that get super grating after a minute or so, as opposed to the lush stuff he had to work with for Give Up
