  1. Have you given The Gold Mask time to sink in? I genuinely think it's the best track on the album, with Steps in Time a close 2nd. Overall though, this was a polarising listen track by track on the podcast. I can honestly say, this is my favourite SP album since Machina though. It's everything I wanted Cyr to be, it has far more life to it. Yes, it still feels very much like Corgan is pulling literally every string here and Jimmy and James are there to pose for photos and collect their weekly pay cheque, but this is the most coherent collection of songs he's put out for a very long time imo. I totally get that people don't dig what he's doing with the synth-y thing and that's totally understandable, but I think it's unrealistic to think he's going to release Siamese Dream or MCIS 2.0 at this point. All you can do is take or leave what he's putting out, but personally I've got incredibly high hopes for acts 2 and 3 based on what i've heard from act 1 and from the live performances of other tracks. Especially keen to see what the two 8min+ tracks sound like, he's got a good track record with those.
  2. Just an FYI - it looks like some of the indie retailers have misinterpreted what they're receiving. There are different coloured INSERTS, but everything outside of the signed vinyl will be black. Looks like the smoke gets Atum will be the most limited release of any full length SP release... Ever?
  3. Updated posts with links in comments. Thanks guys.
  4. First two tracks from the newly anticipated SP release ATUM have been revealed via the Thirty Three with WPC podcast.

  5. Very surprising! 6 months after Unlimited Love drops we get more Chilli's. Double LP slated for release October 14. https://store.warnermusic.com.au/artists/red-hot-chili-peppers/return-of-the-dream-canteen-curacao-vinyl Only have the link to the Australian store, which has the Blue and Black vinyl.
  6. Not sold on the track yet and that album artwork is the most hideous thing I've ever seen. I absolutely adored The Getaway so I'll keep the faith. Definitely not a fan of the autotunish sound Anthony has gone with. PS. Any Aussies looking for this, JB Hi-Fi has it up for preorder in red 🤙
  7. If it weren't for Silverchairs Diorama, I reckon I’d say that Sound Awake is the greatest album by an Australian artist… ever? As far as prog rock goes it's flawless, and right up there with Tool and APC as far as I'm concerned. This song sounds promising. Both Themata and Assymetry are hit and miss for me. I have zero faith in Ian Kenny after what Birds of Tokyo have become, so I won't get my hopes up... yet.
  8. Silverchair are up there with my favourite band of all time, with Diorama being easily my favourite album of all time. That being said, Talk was really hit or miss for me. The Aerial Love EP was really promising (go listen to Surrender if you've never heard it), but the full release fell pretty flat for me. Interested to hear what angle Daniel is going for on this one, so I've preordered one of each variant (I'm a sucker for signed anything), but I'm not overly optimistic.
  9. I think Mary Star of the Sea is probably my second favourite Billy release after Machina. You definitely should give it a whirl, it's actually insanely good.
  10. I had been umming and arring about what version to get so that was the easiest purchase of my life. Thanks for the heads up.

  12. This is a top 10 all time album for me, and the first album I ever bought on vinyl. Had sweaty palms bidding on a blue copy on eBay and it's a record I'll treasure for a long time. Happy birthday Little Hell!
  13. https://youtu.be/EiyrXf4gBT8 New song - Last Train Home
  14. Don't think John has ever done any special releases before, but figure there will be people down for this. Release date July 16th, no new single or preorders announced yet. Will update post as they become available. www.johnmayerstore.com Black Pink Swirl - webstore exclusive
  15. Yeah. This. I spent extra to get the signed Cotillions box set. I bought tea twice to get a signed Adore and the lime green Monuments, but all those times I felt like I was getting something a bit more for my money (I love tea and deluxe vinyl box sets). They're literally charging a stupid amount for a 2LP, and then tacking an extra 100usd on for them to scribble on them. The sad thing is, these will sell out and this will probably be the benchmark going forward
