I don't think it is, his albums rarely leak before pre-orders are shipped.

I feel like I'm still trying to get used to that album. Didn't like it at first, but after a while the songs started to sink in. It's just one of those albums that takes a while to absorb, I guess.

I think the thing about So Runs... is that you can't listen to it as background music, it's an album you really need to pay attention to in order to enjoy. Most of the songs are so dense, it's like Josh set out to record an album where each song was "Thin Blue Flame"-like in its epicness. The songs by themselves are fine, but overall the record is exhausting to listen to straight through.

From the songs that've been released so far, Beast seems like it'll be pretty balanced. I'm most interested in how autobiographical the lyrics are when in countless interviews before he used to claim not to like autobiographical songs.

Great way to put it. Songs like Folk Bloodbath, Lantern, and Orbital are so tiring to listen to because they are so overproduced. I'm glad he toned it down this time around.

And the lyrics are pretty much along the same line as Bringing In The Darlings, except more uplifting. Which is fine, but for now I'll miss the The Temptation of Adams, the The Thin Blue Flames, and the Another New Worlds.

Lights is probably one of my least favorites from the new album, but holy shit, this live version is superb in every way. Beautiful.

That's one of my favorites, actually, just for the vocal melody at the very end. But I'm curious, what are your favorites?
That live version actually made me like the studio version more.

I'm really digging Evil Eye, In Your Arms Again, and A Different Light. This album is stellar.

I'm rewatching the release show. Man, I love this man, he's such a joy and a sweetheart. Howling along with the audience during Wolves, his always hilarious Harrisburg intermission stories, prolonging the start of The Temptation of Adam by ranting about ghosts in pretzel shops. He's seriously my favorite person ever.

Does anyone have the b-sides? I've only heard "I Got My Own Way" so far.
