  1. I hate to pass up an easy opportunity to trash on new Green Day but this was actually much less atrocious than I expected based on hearing the singles. There are 2-3 tracks on here that are actually the first GD songs I’ve dug in 10+ years and even the obnoxious and annoying songs, while being not very Green Day-ish, do more for me than Revolution Radio and the last few records. I’m pressing Submit Reply before I come to my senses.
  2. Those EPs were the peak of my DC fandom. It felt like Chris Carrabba could do no wrong and I'd be young forever.
  3. The "I'll gamble on this and, if I don't like it, I can just sell it" model has not worked very well for his last few releases, which has actually been good for me because I don't like slipping into the collectability FOMO mindset. It feels good to respect a Sufjan release and let it exist without the need to engage with it financially. It's part of being an adult Sufjan fan.
  4. As long as there are lazy, rich people who are happy to drop hundreds and thousands of dollars on trendy concept products/subscriptions that they're to busy to vet or research, tech bros like this dude will keep proposing them and collecting decent cash each round. And lazy blogs and lifestyle sites will be glad to run unvetted advertorials for them.
  5. I believe bands do this to create a new recording that they own, can make more money off of, and control. My source is when Reel Big Fish re-recorded a bunch of songs for a Greatest Hits compilation to mess with their old label releasing a Greatest Hits without their involvement or input.
  6. My local shop has been around for 60 years and is a decent size serving a large city and they have shared with me that they get shorted on RSD orders often. I’ve always been curious how that stuff works.
  7. I love that it’s an actual bootleg that sounds like a bootleg and that they didn’t just record a regular live album with a bootleg visual aesthetic/backstory/gimmick.
  8. I found a copy! Please pay it forward to the next National fan, if you got a copy for a stranger.
  9. Thanks! That’d be awesome. I will update this thread if I can find a copy so that no one expends any undue energy on my behalf.
  10. If anyone comes across a National tape set and wants to help out a random, hit me up! My bud already went to two spots that either had no copies or had them sell out immediately upon opening.
  11. Last track is only one that I think fully translates Beck's strengths and music personality into this genre. Others feel like Beck singing over modern click hop tracks written, arranged, and produced by someone else.
  12. I like both! But if I had to choose my least favorites of the post-Let Go era, I'd choose those before You Know Who You Are (which I think was a needed return to a more dynamic and textured place after the straight-forward, workman-like Astronomy).
  13. It does look nice but raising the price $3 (from an already inflated price) because it’s a fancier color was just petty enough for me to go back to waiting for the eventual $10 copy on importcd’s eBay shop.
