PO: Rhye-Blood (2/2)

Recommended Posts

About time.  That’s all I can say.  Went with the vinyl + EP combo, and was happy to see realistic shipping rates with no sales tax.

 

That candle in the pre-order bundle is hilarious, though.  Is there a more “Rhye appropriate” pre-order bonus than a candle?  Maybe a bottle of edible rubbing ointment.

Not going to lie, I almost bought the candle. It's more expensive than either record though, so I passed.

 

Absurdly appropriate for them. Better than any shirt/hoody/bottle opener/flag/hat/coffee, WHAT HAVE YOU...

After giving the album a once through, I cant help but feel a teeny tiny bit underwhelmed. Its incredibly subdued which is a nice change of pace, and certainly is easier to translate to a live show, but damn I sure do miss the strings and brass going crazy all the time. Maybe I just hype shit up too much in my head, but I know it will grow on me. Please is still my favorite track hands down.

Received my shipping notification as well.  But more importantly, just wanted to say I’m digging the album on the first listen (stream).  It is in fact a bit more subdued like Equinox said, but there’s some a lot of subtleties in the mix and some very strong grooves and melodies.  Very suave listen; many a children will be conceived to songs off this album over the following years.

As punishment for my previous comments, I only received the Summer Days EP today. That said upon further listens I find more little details that are growing on me. The ep sounds and looks good. Its definitely not as bright as Woman is, so hopefully the Blood pressing is similar.

Mine came in separate mailers, and they had different shipping dates. Blood is sounding good. Summer Days was hella dished.
