Pretty much giddy right now. This is going to be incredible, no doubt about it.

They did a live session for the BBC, where they played "Demons," "Heavenfaced," and "Graceless," plus an interview. It's pretty good, and you can listen to it here.

I'm pissed. But excited to listen. But pissed.

This sums up my feelings on the matter as well.

Listening for the first time, and I just hit the "Blue Velvet" part in "Humiliation." Took that song to another level for me.

Glad I'm not the only one. I'm used to getting laughed out of the room for saying that.

I've never really gotten into Smith either, to be honest. Not for lack of trying, though. You're not alone!

Just bought tickets to see these guys in September! I had to miss the last time they were here, so I've been waiting for this for a long long time. Very excited.

That detail about "Slipped" and Dylan's "Not Dark Yet" is so cool.

This album is great but I feel like it could use some editing. In terms of length, I mean...could be tighter.

I'll agree with this. At least, right now. It feels like a big album to me, which is nice, but it also feels one or two songs too long.

And I'll agree with others: "Heavenfaced" is probably my least favorite song on here.

Spending the night running through their discography. It'll be a great night.

happens all the time

M83 are (is?) great in studio...wasn't really impressed with them @ Coachella

good to see Foo Fighters and Blink getting some play

i was on a 100% radiohead kick a couple months ago (especially AUD pulls from live shows during the KoL tour)...haven't listend to them in a while though

There's a few soundboard rips from that tour that are so good, if I'm remembering correctly. Been a while since I've given them a listen.

the bonarroo AUD pull is REALLY SOLID

Yeah, and did you see they leaked a professionally mixed soundboard of Bonnaroo from '07 (or '06, I can't remember)? Incredible show. I have way too many Radiohead bootlegs, haha.

"Heavenfaced" was probably my least favorite on the first few listens, but it's grown on me tremendously. I'd argue there's not a weak track on here now.

Although I'm still not sold that it needs to be as long as it is?

It also contradicts some stuff he said earlier, right? About how they felt reinvigorated and things like that?

Can't wait to pick up the vinyl on Tuesday. Looks fantastic. High Violet is still one of my favorite records package-wise, what with the black and purple (or violet) records and overall feel of it.

I keep thinking this album could be much...tighter? For lack of a better word. It doesn't feel as well-paced or as compact as Boxer or HV, but cutting any of the songs would really diminish the overall feel of the album, I think. It's an interesting album that I've been thinking about a lot, especially in regards to their past albums, as had been discussed to death in here, I think. The album as a whole hasn't clicked for me like HV or Boxer or Alligator, but pieces of it are just incredible ("Don't Swallow The Cap," "Pink Rabbits"). I feel like it would be more powerful pared down a bit, but at the same time I don't really want that. I'm still trying to work out my feelings about this one, basically.
