I'm really wondering how this album will do sales wise.

I'm on Biloxi right now and thoroughly enjoy it through the first listen. This is why they are my favorite band, they never disappoint me.

Exactly what I thought it would sound like. Absolutely great. The fact that people will rag on this because they are "that band" now is such a joke.

This is the type of album that makes me proud to have been following this band over the years.

Stupid question but honestly I don't follow this type of stuff, do digital sales weigh differently then actual physical sales? Would I be better off going to a store and purchasing it or am I OK off of Amazon or Itunes?

I honestly have to say this is most likely going to be my AOTY.

I will say this about the album compared to the previous releases, in my opinion this one offers up more variety in style/tempo.

Alright, finished it. On first listen, the album is very bottom heavy, and the only songs I enjoyed from the first half were Here Comes My Man and Keepsake. Picks up with Howl, and the rest of the album is solid. Overall the album is good, but not as god-like as people have hyped it up to be. For me, no tears of joy were shed, and I cannot see this being as classic as 59 or Sink or Swim. But who knows, it may just grow on me over time.

Absolutely love this record! Keepsake is amazing. Also I think it's their most diverse record to date I'm my opinion. It's nice to have a band on this site that doesn't make the same fucking record over and over again.

Anybody that says that this record isn't amazing is wrong. Opinion doesn't even come into consideration here.

If it's a legitimate website (like either of those) there's no difference physical vs digital.

I think the album is absolutely stunning after my first full listen.

I haven't been this in love with a guitar tone since I first heard Mike Ness's. This is like a controlled scream and I love it. It just punches so well.

Finally have a song by this band I love in "45". Hope the rest of the album grows on me in the same way and I can finally get into this band.

The particular brand of studio gloss on some of these tracks is a little icky to me, the vocals just sound so unnatural. But overall I love this album first listen in. Big F yes to Mulholland Drive, Too Much Blood, Howl, and Mae, Mae, Mae . Still digging 45 too, even though it seriously contains the aforementioned gloss.

By the way, first listen in it's easily one of my top 5 AOTY, so don't take my production complaints too seriously. And I love the echo in the last acoustic track.
