Don’t get the big stink. Not that they’re a terrible band but this has been done before and a hell of a lot better. It’s a tired and tried formula. Having not seen them live, the recorded music is boring, predictable and ultimately, forgettable. A one dimensional affair. Guess they would be appealing to anyone who isn’t familiar with the bands they’re mimicking. In that case, I kind of get why kids are drawn to them. At least there’s nothing sneeringly ironic about the act, they seem to mean it.

My two fave tracks, though they’re all solid. The record keeps getting better with every listen.

For sure. It’s one of my faves.

This is a great record. Love the production/live feel.

Yeah, I hear the Velvets aesthetic all over this record and loving it. Also, T.H.M. totally nails the first Talking Heads album. The understated, whispery Byrne jangles, Weymouth inspired bass line and Harrison type electric piano and subtle guitar. Fantastic song.

Tried getting into this record. The music is interesting but the guy’s vocals are just way too agitating. Like nails on a chalk board.

Diamond Dogs & Young Americans are both fantastic albums. A few of my fave tunes are on both.

Goat’s Head Soup is a criminally underrated album. I wrote it off for years but it’s a masterpiece.

Look forward to hearing it

Beautiful write up. I too remember when Loveless came out and hearing it for the first time as an impressionable 14 year old. It changed everything. I’m going to go ahead and pull the trigger… easily album of the year. Nothing else matters in the wake of this release. Everything else will be derivative of some other band who has done it better. I’m sure they’ll be a couple good records but come on…. I’ve had this album on repeat since Saturday. Haven’t had the urge to do that with a new release in ages and definitely not to this extent. Shields delivered big time.
