  1. Lufthansa is an awesome airline!
  2. I just got back from Paris today! Here are my 2 cents... The Bastille district is a cool area. My wife and I found ourselves in that neighborhood several times throughout our visit. Lots of cool shops, bars, etc, and less touristy and less expensive. I also recommend Born Bad records like others have mentioned. There's a "cat cafe" named Cafe de Chats where you can eat and drink while cats roam around for you to play with and pet. There's also The Moonshiner which is a speakeasy behind a pizza shop that makes great cocktails and has friendly bartenders. Lastly, The Bataclan is nearby if you're lucky to catch a show. Another must-visit in my opinion is Walrus Records. It has a great selection, and also a cafe in front of the store, so if your wife doesn't care so much for vinyl shopping, she can have a coffee or beer while you shop! If you really want to see the touristy stuff, spend the extra money on a "skip the line" tour. You'll have to follow a tour guide, but it will save you tons of time from waiting in the general admission lines. We used Fat Tire Tours, and thought the guides were really good and informative.
  3. I'm just here to add NIN song/album titles that are relevant to this conversation. It's amazing how well these work! Sin That's What I Get Things Falling Apart Somewhat Damaged The Fragile Broken Fixed Gave Up I Do Not Want This The Mark Has Been Made Complication The Collector Disappointed And All That Could Have Been
  4. The digital download from the LP had the album split into 2 sides, A1-7 and B1-7. That would make Above the Bridge either #6 or #13, depending on how it's numbered...
  5. $29.99 - Translucent Dark Blue
  6. yep, available in the US. Got a copy today at Reckless.
  7. loved their first album, but having a hard time getting into this one. Nothing's jumping out as catchy as the first one was... seems like this is more of a grower, but just haven't had a chance to spend much time with it. what are some of your favorite tracks so far?
  8. aaand, done! https://www.srcvinyl.com/fergie-the-dutchess-2xlp.html
  9. PO: Young the Giant - Home of the Strange

    this album is excellent. much better than the last, and maybe better than the first as well.
  10. Understood. Thanks for taking the time to explain.
  11. I appreciate you explaining your intentions, but I really don't think you need to justify yourself. Let the art and your artistic decisions speak for themselves, for better or worse. Please choose your words carefully. You shouldn't insinuate the rest of us that have an opinion as being lesser fans because we don't want demos and extra stuff. Decomposer is on the short list of my all time favorite albums, but the way I choose to consume it is my choice, and I'd think you'd want to know what your fans are looking for. Rather than come on here and say we mustn't be "core fans", maybe you should listen to your fans and understand we want options for how we consume your music and support you as a band. I've been pretty stoked for the upcoming show this Saturday in Chicago, but now I'm doubting if I'm a "core" enough fan to enjoy it. Maybe I should sell my tickets and buy the album with the money I make back. I'm aware I'm being a bit dramatic, but it's a fine line to tread when artists attempt to explain themselves on the internet and convey the wrong message in the process. EDIT: I also realize I called your artistic decision "junk" in my first post, which is an unfair comment. Sincere apologies for that.
  12. What are the chances they'll press a standard version after this? Not looking for all this extra junk...
  13. where did you get it from? I got it from Amazon and at least it came with an AutoRip...
  14. How has this been out for almost a week and no one's talking about it? It's an intense listen... and the corresponding video takes it to a whole other level. Hold Up, Don't Hurt Yourself (w/Jack White), 6 Inch (w/The Weeknd), and Daddy Lessons are my favorite tracks so far. Really hope this gets a pressing.
  15. Vroom Vroom is a hot song, and a hot video to match... https://itunes.apple.com/gb/post/idsa.bef9fc56-08ac-11e6-94db-238b9195864e can't see myself spending $30 on 4 songs though.
