PO - Brand New - Science Fiction

I like it. One of the first songs I learned to play on drums. It's semi-repetitive yes, but it actually helps a great deal in learning to count beats since there's that long gap and some other super simple rudiments that give it a twinge of nostalgia for me.

My only gripe with that song is that it has the same drum beat as Sic Transit Gloria.

 

Then again Brand New loves the ol' "boop bap boop boop bap" beat as much as  Coldplay loves that "dat doot doot dat doot doot dat doot" beat ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Well I need to make sure I am doing my part to contribute meaningless nonsense to this thread....

So let me just say that my Indie copy just happend to come out flawless, no pops or crackle on any sides.

I did a crappy direct capture from the end of the song as unecessary proof. 1m long.

Also, good reminder to get some help here on reducing interference in my setup, I get a quiet buzz 24/7, thinking its something with the ground on the pre-amp?

Of course talking about sound quality and pressing qc is the most meaningless nonsense in this thread...

Spinning my indie copy and there's a loud tic across every rotation during the beautiful part at the end of Out of Mana

 

God damnit. 

Same here. Thought it was damaged from a piece of dirt in there while shipping, but guess not. What's weird is if you look closely it looks like a scribble like it was scratched on purpose. I don't know how this wasn't caught by quality control.

Should we start taking bets on how long the next delay will be?

well it says brief, so i would imagine I have it by mid-December.  It sucks, but it is what it is.  I'm not going to complain since I've had the mp3s for over two months now.  But I feel bad for anyone who is holding out to hear the album on wax for the first time.  And I guess the limited edition is now confirmed to be a different variant so at least we have that clarification.
