    First song already slaps, so I'm real pumped for the rest.

    This will be great to play in the summertime. I'm enjoying it a lot so far. Is It True and Breathe Deeper are absolute flames. Some tracks lost my attention at points like Lost in Yesterday and one or two of the early tracks--but I think they'll probably grow on me in time.

    I'm imagining Kevin reading this which triggers his PTSD from the feud with Trevor, lol

    The bass in the new version of Borderline reminds me a lot of Myxomatosis by Radiohead

    Don’t think TSR will ever “top” Currents for me but definitely glad to have more new and groovy music from Kev. Lots of excellent and memorable moments on this one, Is It True has been a stand out so far.

    Breathe Deeper is going to sound absolutely massive live.

    Really enjoyed the album. Breathe Deeper is insane. New Borderline is sick. This is gonna be great background music for just about anything I could possibly be doing.

    Posthumous Forgiveness probably the only track that hasn’t really caught me tbh. It’s alright, but I love the rest of the album

    On my 3rd listen and this is even better than I was hoping for. The singles had really started to grow on me anyway, but as a whole they sound fantastic and the whole album feels pretty special

    Im not tryna fight about it but I dont really see how either of those 3 tracks in a row are ballad-y or really any other problem with them being placed next to eachother. Is it the length thats the problem?

    Maybe so, maybe not.

    Kevin getting rid of the "L.A. really messed me up" lyric is a sin.

    I need him to play a non-festival Boston show

    This album is really a great soundtrack for my quarter life crisis, right down to the name check in Lost In Yesterday (I mean I don't go by Matty but close enough)
  21. Drewski

    Maybe so, maybe not.

    This is good, but the trajectory indicates that at some point their entire show is going to be pre-recorded with Kevin Parker occasionally singing.

    Maybe so, maybe not.

    I've seen them 14 or 15 times since early 2013.

    I'm really missing the times when there was a full band interplay that breathed life into shows by stretching songs out: getting nice little jams on Desire Be, Desire Go, Half Full Glass of Wine, Apocalypse Dreams, so on.

    Yes, the enhanced production is great but I'm seeing some diminishing returns in regards to how planned everything is—pre-recorded drums, vocals, etc. Hoping some new setlist variety will spice things up.

    I imagine most bands aren’t as exciting to see by your 15th time

    My qualm with "Posthumous Forgiveness" are unrelated to the other songs. I just think sequencing "Tomorrow's Dust" and "On Track," two similarly subdued, five-minute songs comprised largely of acoustic instrumentation, lends to them somewhat blending together into a 10-minute lull in an otherwise exciting album. It's not even necessarily that the songs are weak, I just think it's a strange sequencing decision.
