  1. Got the fifth member one, but damn, that artwork is ugly as fuck (just like the last one)
  2. They should really get on it and continue the Kubrick soundtracks. Shining would have been cool for halloween besides the 7 inches from last year. Edit: The Mandalorian Season 2 Box set also doesn't seem to be coming out soon...
  3. Yikes. If it were at least a little bit limited, they have currently more than 2000 left in stock in the european store and more than 8000 in the american store. Like, how are they planning to ever sell all of these? That and the price point make this kind of a bummer, plus I'm just now starting to kind of get a grip on this record.
  4. Can anyone explain why the kinetic edition costs 40 dollars? I've seen photos of it being a single sleeve, single LP edition with just a one-fold-lyric-sheet. Like, 40 dollars are kind of insane for that or am I missing something? The gold cover looks beautiful, but it should be 30 max.
  5. The album might be called "X-Rated" - Wikipedia had that title listed on the discography page yesterday. That has however since been deleted.
  6. As I understand it the track list is etched into the run out groves? The instagram photo at least suggests that.
  7. Copy ordered, shame the autographed version is only available in the bundle, 155 euros is completely insane for a 40 dollar record and 2 shirts, a bunch of stickers and a sleeping mask.
  8. Come on fuckers, make it available in the EU as well. What the hell, it's 2022. Edit: Available in Europe now too, hell yeah https://shopuk.thekillersmusic.com/*/*/Pressure-Machine-Deluxe-Vinyl/7LJ40000000
  9. Hope it's gonna be a white vinyl or splattered with white and black or something like that. @ntslash I think the prices are going to somewhat stay like that eve after the reissue. Leitmotif prices for the original didn't go down. Maybe because the sleeve of the old one is nicer and the cover doesn't say "20th anniversary", who knows.
  10. Got mine today, the packaging is surprisingly flimsy, surprising because the original is okay I guess but nothing special and quite thin as well, this one is even worse plus the design of the spine is really odd, the back and front basically split on the spine, the original is cleaner there design wise. So yeah, 40 bucks for this is quite a lot having it in hand now, and I was defending them making it this expensive because of the booklet etc. Hope the pressings of their next album, if it will eventually come out in 9 years will be on par with El Cielo and Pariah.
  11. BTW does anyone know if there will be a repress on the Master of Puppets deluxe box? I think they did one on Justice and I remember reading somewhere on here years ago that they would do one for Puppets, was wondering if anyone had any info on that, it's only available for over 1000 dollars atm, which is ridiculous.
  12. More Walmart Exclusives coming soon: https://www.metallica.com/news/2022-05-18-walmart-vinyl-round-two.html
  13. My brown copy has a cross cursor on it, it's not an accident. Probably about how the digital age comes in the way of connecting with a piece of art and a shared humanity, one of the themes AF has been talking about since Reflektor.
  14. My god... it's their best album since The Suburbs, totally in love with it. It's a shame my brown pressing cracks and pops all the way through, gonna get a black, a blue and picture disc pressing the coming days, hopefully one of those will sound good.
  15. Incredible song. I'm so happy they seem to be on track again after EN, they seem to have kind of found again what made them great in the first place, which most bands don't seem to be able to do. Looking forward to this album most of any coming out this year.
  16. They should have made a black restock of the soundtrack instead of repressing the coloured version
  17. Got one, hell yeah, was worried because I missed it going live by five minutes, gonna be great alongside the initial colored sketchbook release!
  18. Awesome, then I can cancel my white copy, the marbled fits so much better. This is not amazon exclusive btw, it says indie exclusive at multiple stores in Germany: HHV: https://www.hhv.de/shop/de/artikel/arcade-fire-we-indie-exclusive-marbled-brown-vinyl-edition-904361v1?f_lco=453054519&f_scp=11&gclid=Cj0KCQjw29CRBhCUARIsAOboZbJIi6xIDDzjzt9lVS8YM_OHeGcENYy20DpAFesz4L-6Si4xAPjIOJYaAncyEALw_wcB Flight 13: https://www.flight13.com/arcade-fire-we-indie-exclusive-marble-brown/146349
  19. Definitely Chemistry... I remember so clearly listening to EN on the first day it came out and just being shocked that AF actually made a song like that. For me everything they had ever done up until that point was pure gold, including Reflektor which has some rough spots for me personally (hctnt, normal person). Peter Pan took literally years for me to get used to, that's being followed by the awful Chemistry and that by esentially half a song that has been divided into 2 songs, basically giving you 2 one-quarter songs, followed by the weakest single... God God Damn after that is amazing. But just the entire middle section of the album being so dull has kept me from ever listening to the album in it's entirety again since 2017, which is something I would have never expected to happen from one of my 3 favourite bands. That album was genuinely heart breaking for me.
  20. Nah, this song sounds more like old AF that anything since Suburbs. Lightning sounds like Reflektor and Funeral had a baby, with the Funeral half being dominant. It sounds more like AF than Everything Now which as a whole album was absolute dogshit with the exception of the first singles and 1,2 other songs.
  21. Signed Print: https://store-us.arcadefire.com/ Shame that there is no exclusive color, the cover artwork would have given so much potential for splattered or swirl color variants. Limited Indie White Vinyl UK: https://www.banquetrecords.com/arcade-fire/we/19439971222 Resident: https://www.resident-music.com/productdetails&product_id=88782 US: https://parkavecds.com/UPC/194399712511 Germany: https://www.jpc.de/jpcng/poprock/detail/-/art/arcade-fire-we/hnum/10892882 The new song sounds amazing and very promising:
  22. Hope this one's gonna be better than the absolute turd that was their last album. I still don't understand why they haven't kept their old producer Jacob Hellner who produced all of their stuff until LIFAD, this guy really knew how to get the magic out of that band. Since they have started to work with Olsen Involtini they sound like every other generic industrial metal band.
