New Ensiferum yay

clercqie

New Nathan Fake seems interesting. It'll probably be a while until I'll check it out though. Also, where's Bloc Party? Thought the American release was also this week?

ILJ
08.20.12
Dat Seer.

I may need to write something for that, being that it's AOTY and all.

20th, it's on last week's post

New Fake is good, though a little disappointing

clercqie

Oh wow, The Seer is finally out? That one album makes up for this ENTIRE week.

I found a stream of The Seer, I'm pretty sure it counts as official if you want to add it to the list of album streams this week Dev. This website counts as official right?

taylormemer

I've sent them a letter of complaint.

Metalstyles
08.23.12
Haha, maybe we just all listened to the same stuff for the second week in a row ;)

taylormemer
08.23.12
Yeah. That's what I'm thinking.

taylormemer
08.23.12

That's what I get for not refreshing the page before posting haha

Ishysez
08.23.12
any chance of a staff/contrib review of the new Six Organs of Admittance?

Omaha
08.23.12
Anybody else planning to cover the new Minus the Bear album? I'll probably review it, it's pretty cool stuff.

clercqie
08.23.12
Indeed it is. Do it justice Omaha! ;)

matt wolfe i think if he's still alive @ omaha

Somebody set Meshuggah's discography on repeat over night, it seems

Omaha
08.24.12
I was partially responsible for ETID. Listening to the Big Dirty so much this week.

"Somebody set Meshuggah's discography on repeat over night, it seems"

It goes by the number of people listening to a band, not the number of plays. For example, perhaps 4 people listened to Meshuggah, and 3 people listened to Dirty Projectors.

Omaha
08.24.12
Yeah, exactly. A couple weeks back I listened to Dark Time Sunshine perhaps 140 times, yet nobody else did so they weren't on the list.

08.24.12
seems like I´m not missing much. downloaded new Swans just before I set off but I haven´t listened to it yet

SgtPepper
08.27.12
Just saying that I'm not going to be able to review Ariel Pink. Sorry about singing up for it earlier during the week, but with school starting and other stuff happening, I've become more busy than Im thought I was going to be. Again, I apologize.

Deviant.
08.27.12
Demoted

breakingthefragile

I know it's like an entire week late and it doesn't really matter at all now, but I reviewed the new Trey Songz album Chapter V if you want to do that thing where you make the album red on the list Dev.

Deviant.
08.30.12
You mean link your review haha. Yeah sure, give me a minute

breakingthefragile
08.30.12
Yeah, that's what I was trying to say haha. Thanks man.
