Really? That's disappointing.

Just listened to this

... and it's hot garbage.

Just a bunch of pointless sound, artlessly thrown together in what I'm sure they'd call a 'collage'.

Broadcast remains one of the best bands ever. This stinks!

Re: Just listened to this

I think that's a bit harsh, but I was also underwhelmed.

it seems a bit like Witch Cults part 2, which might mean I'll think it's a masterpiece in 5 years. Witch Cults was not something I liked right away and I'm not super into the Ghost Box sound at the moment.

I listened to it, in it's entirety, twice and that felt like that was all I needed. all the elements we've come to expect from those involved. I guess I was hoping for at least one proper song. *shrug*

Re: Just listened to this

Yeah, might have been harsh. For some reason I had my hopes up for this project (not having heard it the first time around) and was let down.

I really don't get anything out of that Ghost Box sound at all. I mean, zero.

For the record

John Mcentire specifically mentions this as his recent recommendation in a reddit AMA.

I guess I just don't get it.

ditto here, glad I didn't pre-order a copy

listening to it the second time today and I still don't really have any positive reaction. feels a bit aimless (like much of the Focus Group stuff). I never really got into the Broadcast/FG album, it's only listenable because Trish's voice is in there

"Aimless" is right.

I mean, it's arguably not even music.

I'd love to see them live. I just heard new songs and I ahve to say awesome.

Re: Children of Alice

I have this album. I didn't really like it as much as the stuff that had Trish's voice on it.
