Not gonna listen to it, must resist!
I caved. It's weird not having the context of the album around it. Hmmm
Digging: Krallice - Crystalline Exhaustion
Must resist 
Digging: MF DOOM - Special Herbs 7,8
Hnnnng. Mouse. Hovering. Over play button.
don't play with your food you unshapely oct
Digging: yourboyfriendsucks! - Episode 1
It's great, and I bet it's gonna even greater in context.
Digging: Tomb of Annihilation - End of Time
really like the last minute though
definitely unusual sounds used there for them
Digging: Mol - Diorama
I like how this band has music for every mood.
Really good! Very glad that they didn't forget that their quiet songs/passages are quite potent too
The end is very cool. Seems that this album is gonna have an "all-in-one" vibe.
Must resist 
Massive hype though! I'm feeding off the collective energies of all who have heard this already. Hang on I'm getting something...
yeah this RULES!
Digging: Aurora - The Gods We Can Touch
Agreed with FurtherDown. The last album that felt like that was SATH imo
lol i don't get this notion of not listening to singles before the whole thing is released. listening to stuff more can only enhance your experience in the long run imo
Think of it as watching a random scene from a movie. Then waiting months to see the rest to get context.
Where a trailer might be sample, this scene is large enough to catch a percentage and skew the end result
Depends. I think when you already know you'll be spinning the absolute crap out of something it doesn't really make sense to check individual cuts first, considering it'll be outside of the album's wider context. Those songs could end up wearing somewhat thin before others, simply because you've heard them more often. It's also very exciting checking for the first time knowing every song is a brand spanking new one.
Yeah like Gnocchi said, no spoilers please!
This track feels like the culmination of all of their efforts on the softer songs and an evolved version of And with her came the birds. I think that this record may be a celebration of the bands career and merging and enhancing all of the various different sounds/textures they have used before.
Or this is simply uninformed wank and speculation from me
I don't think about music like i think about narratively driven visual media at all though. Music is something that I like to experience as often as possible with each consecutive consumption process enhancing the experience. While thats also something I might do with a movie I love, I won't watch the same movie three times in one evening because I love it, that just won't happen. I would however listen to the same album multiple times in a day without thinking twice about it.

I always check singles cause when checking the full album they are like beacons of familiarity my short patience can hold unto.
Thats me as well dewinged
"I always check singles cause when checking the full album they are like beacons of familiarity my short patience can hold unto."
This album is going to slay.
I’ve flip flopped with listening to singles, because they sometimes end up occupying a weird space for me where I subconsciously think they’re ‘detached’ from the rest of it, even if they fit perfectly. Plus, some tracks (even singles) just flat out work better in the context of the album. Just a personal thing.
I usually listen to singles one time so I am at least familiar with the direction the album might take. Then I get excited from there
those afraid of a song ruining the rest of the album early have impulse control problems
interesting spacey track
Or it could just be personal preference, relinquished.
its fine to not want to listen to singles before an album releases, but the idea that it ruins the listening experience is pretty dumb.
I don't think anyone used the word 'ruin' (any impact is probably going to be fairly negligible in the vast majority of cases), but singles just aren't that important to me. I will be listening to this album, many times. I'll be patient and wait for the release.
If there's a 0.01% chance that hearing a song out of context takes away 0.01% of my enjoyment when I get to my 20th album spin or beyond, then I'd rather wait (and no, this isn't quantifiable in actual numbers, I'm just making a point).
A band I've never heard of before releases a single that seems interesting? Sure, might check.
quantify these nuts demon with your literal ass
hope yall know there’s always an audience outside of the thread
only question everyone should be asking is whether this will be aoty or not
"hope yall know there’s always an audience outside of the thread"
a music forum that is often shitty and toxic may be judged for being shitty and toxic?
fuck you wyanqueef
pound sand wolfe
Oh man...those chords progressions...
‘only question everyone should be asking is whether this will be aoty or not’
No questions needed, it will
Wow, these guys are putting out material at a pretty good pace lately!
I had one listen of the first single but now I'm holding out 'til the full release :]
