Shame that there is no exclusive color, the cover artwork would have given so much potential for splattered or swirl color variants.

Amoeba is also taking preorders for the white vinyl pressing. I was able to use the 2-day sale code MAR15 to take 15% off.



Up at Bullmoose as well.



There is an exclusive picture disc pressing available direct from the artist.

Reflektor was/is awesome. Everything Now was/is a snore. This sounds like they're trying to be The War On Drugs who sound like they're trying be every Petty/Springsteen song all at once.

Nah, this song sounds more like old AF that anything since Suburbs. Lightning sounds like Reflektor and Funeral had a baby, with the Funeral half being dominant. It sounds more like AF than Everything Now which as a whole album was absolute dogshit with the exception of the first singles and 1,2 other songs.

I can see where the TWOD comparisons are coming from and they're honestly not that far-fetched.  Gotta' agree that I'm getting way more Suburbs energy from this than anything they've done in a long while though.  And I'm in a very small camp that didn't completely hate Everything Now – though it absolutely has some of their worst material to date – but I'll still gladly add this to my 2022 Anticipated list.

My ranking would be Funeral > Suburbs >>> Neon Bible > Everything Now >>> Reflektor

This song definitely sounds more like the first 3 albums which is SUPER encouraging and somewhat unexpected.

I didn’t love Reflektor at first then Porno randomly came up on shuffle and I heard it in a new way. Then I listened to the whole album with a new perspective. I hope I come around on this. I’m open to it. 

NB > Funeral > Burbs/Reflektor >>> EN
