    I like Jet a lot. Looking forward to an interesting follow up to EIGTH. Hoping for a bit more of a focus and consistent sound this time.

    I only liked a couple songs on EGTH which bums me out because I really adored Youth. Jet seems promising.

    Constant horror and bone-deep dissatisfaction.

    Pretty good track, will surely give their new record a chance.

    Youth I thought was excellent, and EIGTH was good. Some really awesome tracks on the latter, just not a consistent album all the way through. The stuff before youth is really hit or miss with me, minus the split with Turnover which I loved and was my introduction to this band.

    I've always thought they sound stinky. This is no exception.

    Great song. Sounds like they found the middle ground between Youth and EIGHT. Should be a great album.

    Yeah, they've been done with the record for a while.

    Have we seriously reached a point where not even three months is a long wait for a record? That used to be par for the course.

    Sounds good, like Youth but a little more pop?

    I didn't like the last album.

    This is a banger. Pop gold

    You think that, yet I thought we were finally getting to a point where we didn't need these long album rollouts. I mean, artists these days are not only announcing albums, but dropping them almost as soon as they get announced. Paramore announced their new album and dropped it in a month. Jay-Z surprise-dropped his new album and it's already certified gold. It's just dumb to be that album rollouts are still taking this long when it's completely unnecessary

    Really like this one. Have been anticipating this album all year.

    Save for the biggest artists, I feel like most bands NEED that time for buildup, to get more people interested in the record, etc.

    I think my biggest issue with the long rollouts is when bands put out too many singles too soon. I hate hearing an album and wanting to skip songs I've over played.

    I would like to see one month roll outs with a vinyl delay. Just get me the digital ASAP and send me the vinyl when it's done.

    My thoughts exactly.

    3 months is not a long time. Too many singles can be faulty, but having one or two out, and then included in setlists while on tour is a good move. Bands from much smaller labels like Citizen do not have the kind of fan base to warrant "surprise" releases.

    Not to mention the smaller labels want to advertise as well. Jay Z has his own record company and streaming service, he had complete control and around a decade of waiting from his fans. I'd say if any band at this level were to try a surprise release or few weeks prior release, a good chunk of that already smaller fan base will likely download it for free first to find out if they like it.

    Yeah Jaz-Z is a terrible example.
    He is clearly the outlier in the music industry. ha

    It's almost like there's a middle ground between three month rollout and surprise release

    This is why I threw out the Paramore/MO example first

    I was told yesterday that Mat is friends with a bunch of racist hardcore dudes from my area so I'm gonna have to pass on this band now

    Unless he partakes in awful acts or has promoted similar hateful views, why cut a bands music out of your life for one person being possibly associated with shitty people they know?
