I agree, auto-tune CAN be cool in certain scenarios. I'm a believer!

What, no?

¡Ja!

Yes. I don't order vinyl in the summer, if I can avoid it, for this reason. I was surprised to see it warped so badly considering it's May, but we've already been in the upper-90s, so the mail trucks are pretty toasty. It's flattening out quite nicely. I'll open it up and play it tonight.

I got mine today.  But theres a big crease in the sleeve, the hole is slightly too small (meaning I have to force it onto the player), and there’s already pops on a couple songs. On a brand new record sad

Damn bob, that sucks. The center hole was a bit snug on mine, but the record was flat as a pancake and sounds great. Remember on Jagbags how Matador had some issues with the quality of the Pick Up the Spare pressing -- you might want to reach out to them and ask to make it right.

I'll write out middle section later, the guitar at work is untunable due to a missing machine
head and it's doing my head in to try and play along our of tune. I'm pretty sure it's
just a handful of barre chords.

Nearly done with future suite, which I think is in CGDGAD. Looks like he's returning to the
RET era tunings after a spell in open D?

This is almost as good as my last signature.

Re: The Official New Album Thread

Nicccce - easy, sounds good and is fun -

safe to say CG tunning is the standard tuning 4 the boarders : p

honestly by now I forgot how to play in standard!    ; P

Re: The Official New Album Thread

This album is a grower.

Been listening to Malk since 93 and what I most like about him is how every album has been a grower. I almost never perceive what each album has to reveal without many multiple repeat plays. I can go back to any album even to this day and still find something new or interesting or surprising. I guess that's how you become an obsessive fan or at least what explains my fandom.

That being said, I think this is the Jicks finest album.

Saw him a few nites ago and he played every track off the album. I suppose a lot of veterans would be content to play a few new tracks and mine the old ones. What a remarkable approach, playing the entire new album in front of 300 or 400 fans in a bar.  It helps me find the patience to wait the three or four years between albums and tours. Go Steve Go!

I suppose I was a bit too literal. No Rattler and Difficulties sans LTEV. Saw them at the Grog Shop here in Cleveland Hts. But that's a very large chunk off the new album. I was perfectly happy for the Jicks to allow the new tunes to shine. For all I know, that's what gives them the buzz; playing the new stuff that keeps them energized.
