    clear w/ shard copies of axe to fall don't even sell for anywhere near that price (and thats a better album + cooler looking record). that record will sit on discogs forever.

    i like the album quite a bit but the latter half of the record is definitely more on the mellow side. to me, the first two songs that were released and all the music used in the promo videos were a pretty good indicator of the direction this record was headed.

    Yes, but you're also talking about pretty old records that have found their way into people's permanent collections over a period of years - not something that was released 10 days ago.
     
    I mean, don't get me wrong - I'm definitely a fan of sleep, high on fire, om, etc. But I've never thought of any of these bands as being hyped this much. I know it's been a long time since sleep has put out a full length but if people are this crazy about this record they should be losing their minds over om and high on fire records as well because influences from those projects has definitely crept into sleep. Anyway, rambling aside - I just can't see 10k of something being this difficult to find so I suspect once the hype dies down they'll be easier to find. Wait 10-15 years though - and yeah, one of 10k could be just as hard to find as those Mars Volta or AFI LPs.

    yeah, it really shouldnt be this difficult to obtain a record thats supposed to be "limited" to 10k.

    mostly only in that the album is pretty much an EP's worth of material. take out the two tracks that are less than 40 seconds each and youre down to 7 tracks. for what it is, i dont hate it but to me it sounds like AN/GUTG if they were thrown in a blender with dashes of the bronx, cold cave, some girls and coliseum. also echo the sentiment that "War" is the best track.

    i saw them shortly after EYEWTKAS came out supporting deftones on one of their white pony tours. 99% of the crowd didn't give a shit about glassjaw at all. it was a bit of an odd venue to see those bands in (mostly seats with a revolving stage) but daryl still jumped around and the band moved a lot. unfortunately, i think most people just thought of them as deftones rip offs at the time and really hated sitting through them. year or two later i saw them with poison the well either right before or after worship and tribute came out (which is probably one of my favorite shows i ever went to back in the day) and pretty much eeveryone was losing their minds - band included. 
     
    later on, i saw them in 2011 when they first started touring again and released the two EPs. they sounded good, even with just beck on guitar, but obviously the dynamic was very different.  moreover, they really seemed to throw people for a loop by just playing the coloring book ep as the encore. it was pretty obvious even then that they dont really seem to care for the EYEWTKAS material much at all.  that aside, my take was that daryl and beck just seemed like older dudes that had mellowed out over time.

    for me, ICTYAP and Under Duress have a you fail me-ish era vibe which is a very good thing. i love all converge but i think i prefer when their riffs are little more angular / noise-rock influenced.

    "head like a haunted house"  is probably the best track on the album. for me, the record is a  disappointment though and while the leak is definitely terrible quality - it still hammers home that i really hate the guitar tone (or lack thereof).

    I dont hate what ive heard so far. I just wish the guitar tone wasnt so thin/tinny sounding.

    Interesting take. Could just be geographic differences but I always felt like they were brushed off by many since they were on victory during a time when victory was mostly releasing terrible music (probably still are?). The current will carry us isnt mindblowing but its solid enough and i thought the difference between hell and home was awesome. obviously, the last record was real good as well. I cant think of too many other bands that have picked up where bands like shai hulud and strongarm left off and have done it nearly as well.

    new song is... ehh. feels like this one is going to be more like era vulgaris which is the only QOTSA album i dont really care for. ill reserve final judgment till ive heard the whole album. artwork is rad though.
