I guess in the end, the only things I'm truly worried about are Sirens and the "more produced than Backspacer" comment. It's funny that he says that at the end, but doesn't comment on any particular production issues throughout. Like, I expected "The piano really is fucking awful" at least somewhere.

Also when I first heard Johnny G I thought "Wow, this is so 1980", and then "Daaayum I'm lovin what I'm hearin, yes I am!"

Lets not forget Pit members are usually only super fans of the really obvious stuff(10,vs) and generally aren't the most open minded of people. We have no idea what these 'reviewers' favourite Pj songs are and also the room was loud. If it made them feel disappointed, personally I'm encouraged.

Yeah, the Sirens critique is a bit of a letdown too. I was hoping that would be a big song, but I've always had it in my mind that it will probably be much closer in execution to Come Back than Black.

I'm not sure I'm buying the "Pit member" stereotype anymore... Many of them seem to know their music, based off what I read there today.

I knew the comparison to 'Black' was a red herring because I remember the same comparisons being made with Inside Job.

Interesting.
Things I find exciting:
1. Pit member isn't that thrilled
2. Reference to boredom
3. Drum and vocal verse
4. MYM is the fastest song

Things I find worrisome:
1. Over produced
2. Sleeping By Myself


Optimism up 2 ticks.


:thumbsup: My sentiments exactly, especially the part about a Pit member being bored, cause their "boring" songs are usually my favs. For the life of me I still don't understand the inclusion of Sleeping By Myself and I haven't even heard this version yet. Why the FUCK would you put that on instead of something like Of The Earth. I don't care if OTE doesn't "fit," it's a proven song live dammit!

Same here. I've been there for a while today, and there are quite a few who don't like Backspacer.

True, and the guy did qualify what he meant when he compared it to Black. He just meant a really big song, that gripped him like no song has since Black.

I'm hoping for a better review sooner rather than later... or else I'm going to regret reading those comments for the rest of the day

And when I say a "better" review, I don't mean a more favorable one, I just mean a more detailed and descriptive insight...

And hey, now that it sounds like the soundcheck song might be Infallible, can't everyone who kind of heard Ed singing "swallowed hole" somewhere in there hear "infallible" instead?

I can't see me doing much sleeping tonight.

For the record... Ive been on the pit for a long time now and the majority of them tend to praise Yield more than anything :)


Any word on if those Self Titled B-sides are on Lightning Bolt in some form?
