Yeah this is very enjoyable record. Nothing quite as straightforwardly catchy as some of their other more recent stuff, but I think it'll hold up better.

heads up that the tracklist on spotify and apple music is in the wrong order (which is also, oddly, the order my promo was in). i much prefer the actual sequence

i cant wait to listen :D :D

wait what, the spotify one is wrong?

Simon H., Friday, 19 January 2018 14:17 (one year ago) link

yep

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Friday, 19 January 2018 14:18 (one year ago) link

wtf

Simon H., Friday, 19 January 2018 14:18 (one year ago) link

the corrected tracklist makes sense to me "stay frosty" is kinda weird as track 3 but is a storming opener

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kqSj_BKuUc

for some reason they only uploaded the clean version of this song to youtube

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Friday, 19 January 2018 14:22 (one year ago) link

anyway as usual with nu-FOB album tracks >>>>>> singles, thank god (speaking of which, lol at all the religious sounds/imagery)

Simon H., Friday, 19 January 2018 14:23 (one year ago) link

"bishop's knife trick" is mayyyyyyybe their best closer

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Friday, 19 January 2018 14:25 (one year ago) link

enhhhh the closer was the best thing on the last one so I'm not at all ready to say that

Simon H., Friday, 19 January 2018 14:27 (one year ago) link

i'm right simon

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Friday, 19 January 2018 14:27 (one year ago) link

Man this is reaaaaally good! Excitingly so

Like it’s not Folie ~amazing~ but there’s really no skippable tracks on this for me so far. American Psycho was v patchy & took me a while to warm up, so it’s good to be hooked in from the get go again. Maybe closer to Saves Rock N Roll?
anyway i’ve gone through this twice already today, no signs of stopping

Love Patrick’s singing on Heaven’s Gate

Squeaky Fromage (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 19 January 2018 22:07 (one year ago) link

why is it rearranged on streaming services? i noticed a similar thing happened with 21 savage's album last year, but then it seemed like it was because of which songs were getting the most plays right off the bat to inflate full-album playthroughs. is this going to start becoming a thing?

hmm, never mind, i found this tweet from pete.

No no. It’s a long story why it’s going to be wrong in iTunes for a few weeks- it’s just how their system ingested the songs we already put out.

it is extremely frustrating trying to tell anyone that this band is good

(audience: "well brad then they should make better music")

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Tuesday, 23 January 2018 22:30 (one year ago) link

i am totally obsessed with this record and i think it's def their best since folie, someone pls talk to me about it lol

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Saturday, 27 January 2018 23:47 (one year ago) link

I wish I liked it as much. I do think it's better than AB/AP but I kinda long for the (relatively) spacious sound of SRAR. and I still hate "Champion" and "Hold Me Tight Or Don't" a lot. and "Wilson" sounds a bit like "YOLO" to me lol

"Heaven's Gate" and "Church" make a v nice pairing and are definitely right up there with their best material

Simon H., Saturday, 27 January 2018 23:57 (one year ago) link

thinking Stump should do a devotional r&b followup to Soul Punk

Simon H., Sunday, 28 January 2018 00:07 (one year ago) link

yeah I would love him to an album of slow soul covers

Squeaky Fromage (VegemiteGrrl), Sunday, 28 January 2018 00:49 (one year ago) link

Gave into this despite actively disliking all the pre-release songs. Skipped to the first track I hadn't heard, supposed album opener Stay Frosty Royal Milk Tea (track listing still not updated on Spotify). "Are you smelling that shit? Are you smelling that shit?" I don't want to smell that shit, Patrick.

having a very belated moment with this song

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Friday, 27 April 2018 19:10 (one year ago) link

speaking of belated, Brad was right and I was wrong about "Bishops Knife Trick"

Simon H., Friday, 27 April 2018 19:15 (one year ago) link

i'm always right

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Friday, 27 April 2018 19:17 (one year ago) link
