My god this thing is so much warmer and richer on vinyl. I'd only listened on Spotify so far. But god! I loved this thing before but now... just wow. So full and even more robust than I'd thought. Is the vinyl a different mix? Jesus. The guitar at the end of Pills??!!! Sweet Jesus!

Yes, it sounds fairly weak on the digital platforms. Even the files from the download card in the jacket & are now on my iPhone pale in comparison to the vinyl. Not a huge surprise, and I'm glad some artists are still doing separate mastering for vinyl.


After about 20-25 spins I think it's a great album, my ranking goes something like this:

1. Los Ageless
2. Happy Birthday Johnny
3. Savior
4. Smoking Section
5. Pills
6. New York
7. Dancing With a Ghost/Slow Disco (seems like 1 piece to me, very similar to We Put a Pearl in the Ground/Land Mines from Marry Me)
8. Hang on Me
9. Fear the Future
10. Masseduction
11. Young Lover
12. Sugarboy

The top 4 are already on my list of the 20-25 best tracks of her career.

I just can't get enough of that song. Seriously, Los Ageless through Fear the Future is an outstanding unfuckwithable run of excellence. 5 blistering shots of pure aural bliss.

seems to be an almost universal opinion that Sugarboy is the least favorite track on the album, but man i really dig that song.

the beginning of it sounds like some Devo song, then turns into a track from Prince's Batman soundtrack :haha:

Once the Prince connection clicked for me, I started to really fucking dig that song. Context made all the sense for me.

It’s one of my favorites. I’m a NIN fan, so I’m a sucker for the synth intro

I thought it was right up until I heard the title track for the first time. Then it became pretty clear.
