High Violet is definitely my favorite thing these guys have done. They've only gotten better with each release, so I can't wait to see what's next.

I think I love about half a dozen LCD songs, but "All My Friends" is certainly his greatest work.

I don't like him at all despite giving him a ton of listens because I generally really like that kind of stuff and he's so well regarded. I just don't like his voice or his songwriting.

I think he's a great songwriter and love his stuff when it's performed by other people. But I don't like his voice either.

"I Should Live in Salt" really gives me a "Sweetness Follows" vibe. I am okay with this.

I actually get a whole lot of R.E.M. vibes from this record

Yeah, absolutely. And it's a perfect fit.

How many times have you listened to this now? And have you slept since it leaked? haha

Haha about eight or nine only actually, and I made myself put it down about twenty-four hours ago and haven't gone back since a.) so it'll sound fresh when I do and b.) because I'm finishing up my Vampire Weekend review and that album is just as good as this one (if not better honestly, no joke!) so I've been content with that.

Gonna do a run through of The National's discography this evening though haha. Fucking excellent way to spend one's Friday night.

I haven't checked out the Vampire Weekend record yet. I honestly haven't been a fan of them at all in the past, but I'll probably give this new one a listen due to that endorsement alone.

i didn't like vampire weekend before their new album, but the new album is great, i recommend giving it a go.

Do it man, it's the most ambitious pop album I've heard in a long time. Honestly while it does sound like their other stuff a bit it's not a ton like it. A lot of hardcore VW fans really hate it haha, but I think it's by far their best.

Adding to this just to say that it is their best record in my opinion, check it out.


As far as The National, I have never listened to a full album. Where should I start.

I'll definitely give it a listen.

Also, wall e, might as well start with this one and work your way back. That way, you can catch Trouble Will Find Me while it's a hot conversation topic and dig into the treasures of their back catalog as you let that sink in.

Alternative Press said it was bad, so it's at least worth giving it a listen?

I don't think I've ever read at Alternative Press review...
