  1. Their song titles always have some kind of meaning, and it's usually an inside joke. The last regular album title was a joke: "Every Country's Sun" was making fun of someone they knew who actually thought that every country had their own sun... The new song definitely feels like they are trying to at least give a wink to their early/classic sound while forging down the path they've been on for a few albums. I'm getting some serious "Teenage Exorcists" vibes from "Ritchie Sacramento."
  2. The new song rules. I love how the first 25 seconds tease some standard Gumbo-core, and then they launch into a Mogwai pop song. Super excited for new Mogwai.
  3. Wife will for sure murder me. I knew it was going to be steep, but $450 is going to be tough to swing. Any idea on press size or if this is a timed pre-order?
  4. daaaaammmm, I need that. My wallet is not ready though
  5. Unless you got in on the first 30 seconds it was online, there is nothing to regret... I was doing field work in South America and attempting to F5 like crazy on slow af dial-up speed internet and missed out. I'm still salty about this. It's a flipper's wet dream
  6. ^ this. It's why I still don't own SD. Fuck $50 for this...
  7. For Cult of Luna, it isn't a risk. After 20 years and about a dozen releases, they have a fan base, and they have been consistent enough with the quality of each release. It's not like this is a fledgling band. There is nothing weird about how this is being handled. The can sell these records without a problem.
  8. Because options? If they know they can sell a bunch of records, why not make a bunch of records? Limiting a product below the market potential is just dumb. I'm getting sick and tired of having to sit at a computer and F5 a website because a band or label made way less of something that could sell to a larger audience. If they have to produce product in different parts of the world for different markets, then sure, do fun things with the colors and jackets. All that said, and without rehashing the age-old variant collector debate, I don't blame them for capitalizing on this dumb tr
  9. LOL, yes, because they are forcing you to buy every variant...
  10. The Pale Horses deluxe was great in concept, but that jacket turned out to be a complete mess. I would much prefer to have that in an actual box with some cool art inside instead of the floppy, prone to falling apart and tearing, jacket that they released.
  11. Other than the 45rpm aspect, the original Ten Stories box is far superior to these new collectors editions. Unless they add something unique, I'm going to find it really difficult to buy new boxes for Ten Stories or Untitled.
  12. I think this is some kind of default date for "we have no fucking idea." My pre-order from popmarket for the Dirty Three Ocean Songs boxset was changed to 2025. If I recall correctly, DD and PM are under the same parent company.
  13. whatever it is, it is "real music" or a "real album" whether it is new compositions or reworked themes...
  14. yep. I'd love a MOFI treatment, but the original content is more important to me. I'll stick with the OG green
  15. you are correct. The original green press is the only one with the original Hash Pipe. The MOFI press has the altered version.
