Magic is still there for me in this one. =)

Granted, I took a break from listening to it. When I went back to it though, the magic continued.

The magic is all about the live show

I can appreciate people disliking this album, though still; I'm glad the critics seemed to like it as much as me.

Definitely going to see them live if they every play here. Have you seen them live planewreck?

Yah, did a few weeks ago. Played with the Smith Westerns. Yuck were fantastic, all the songs sounded muscular and perfected. Smith Westerns were boring and overblown, you could tell their sound was perfected in studio with producers.

yeah it's good and i've listened to it a few times but in [as little as] a year or two down the line, if i fancy listening to something in this vein, it's unlikely that yuck are gonna be my go-to band

idk i use it as mixtape fodder which has been dominating my listening habits lately anyway. each song is fantastic for that reason, which doesn't happen often with buzz bands like this. i usually only stick to one or two tracks.

Yeah, the cover is terrible, one might say it's 'yuck' *giggle

Hopefully with their next release; the artwork improves.

love this album. i'm friends with the drummer, jonny rogoff. he dropped out of college and risked a whole lot when he left for england to be in this band. real glad it's being so well received.

^ It's a good album, no reason it shouldn't be.

"i hate the cover though"

It's distinctive and you know it immediately which in part is it's purpose.

That's true but it could be less crass.

Could be but it isn't

Some of us are not offended quite so easily and we tend to not think about those of you who are as much as we should.

On the other hand were we to always take the more sensitive individuals into consideration our art would not be as good in out own eyes.

It's a conundrum.

No, I wasn't offended, it's just, for me; not a beautiful piece of art, nor does it contribute anything to the stylistics or merit of the band. It just looks kinda stupid.
