So yeah, just saw them live Friday night and they were pretty damn good. Enough to get me interested and download some CDs.
But Matt Skiba scares the fucking hell out of me. The way he presented himself on stage... He was freaky as shit.

Can anyone look in the liner notes of this album and tell me which songs Garm from Ulver assisted them with?

This album has grown on me, still no where near as good as previous releases. But I do think that 'Do You Wanna Know?' has to be one of Dan's best tracks.
'I Found Away' is my favourite song on the album.
Still tracks 8-11 don't do much for me.

Alk3 sign with a major label & the more polished sound sees them head in more of a pop-rock direction here. They pull it off surprisingly well too, with quite a few catchy & melodic numbers that utilize everything from hand-claps to “woh wohs”. Unfortunately, those 3-4 tracks which look to heavily incorporate their old darker sound into the mix end up falling flat. It makes for a bumpy listen, but there are thankfully more hits than misses on show. Recommended Tracks: Calling Any Skeletons, I Found Away, Do You Wanna Know? & In Vein.

This album is decent but I think it has the worst song by ALK3 (Love Love, Kiss Kiss) on it so it can't be any higher than a 3 for me.

In Vein is a superb cut from these guys.

All that Hot Water Music talk reminded me of it. Always thought the cover was cool but never actually heard this one.

It's probably there most mature actually, it borders on the alt rock I'd say
It's a great record and I like that they started going in a new direction even though they abandoned it on This Addiction

Heard a lot of bad/meh things about this album but I've always been drawn to the sound they have on this; giving it a proper go now.

Digging: Die Sektor - Applied Structure In A Void
