I can’t imagine that this will sound completely different from their debut. And if it is different, *gasp* how terrible! Nothing wrong with a band experimenting with new sounds or styles.

Also, you people need to chill the hell out. It’s an album cover, for christ’s sake.

Please tell me you’re joking? Who gives a shit how many albums they sell? Good music is good music–don’t let the charts (and either success or lack thereof on said charts) dictate your opinion.

Yeah, you’ve got to be making a joke. I can’t rationalize that statement any other way. You signed as “moot”…maybe you’re making a moot point? Did I figure it out?

I agree. And I feel that that NEVER happens with albums. I can only think of a couple that have stronger second halves.

I like the vocal “distortion” (it’s really slight, anyway). The Letterman performance was better, sure, but this was still really good, and the added instrumental accoutrements were pretty awesome (even if ‘Cousins’ is pretty straightforward).

In any case, I’m really looking forward to the album. I don’t really understand all the backlash, though I guess that’s just the nature of the beast.

Ah, but see, there are plenty of women IN COLLEGE who love this guy. Don’t ask me WHY, but there it is.

Though yes, the main audience is probably 13 yo

And if not sleep with him then cuddle and talk about their feelings or something like that, ’cause he’s so EMOTIONAL and SENSITIVE….

He’s doing something right–he’s rich and there are probably a lot of women (OK, young women; roughly college aged, we’ll say) who want to sleep with him.

The music still sucks, though.

I am quite enticed by Ed’s “we all love surprises, don’t we?” statement.

Oh yes, Ed. We do love surprises. I dunno how you’ll you’ll top the “Hey, new record called In Rainbows out in 10 days” surprise, but I’ve got my fingers crossed for something cool….

God, that hoodie looks terrible. Might as well scream “I’M A DOUCHE” if you wore that haha

Pretty crazy. I like the music a lot…it sounds like something you’d hear in a film. The video was…well…different. Interesting idea, to be sure. A little unsettling, too, what with her commentary and the imagery and the music.
