Started it in April and it’s out today. Damn, it’s a really good one too.
You heard it already? If so, I'm :mrgreen: .
I’ve listened to it several times. It’s a beautiful laid back record. Easily my favorite album of hers but I’m a huge National fan. This thing is getting crazy good reviews.
I'm amazed she managed to keep it so secret . I'm glad you like it, I hope I will too. I think it will be music I have to be in the right mood to listen to it.

A teenage lesbian folk song. She’s writing about some real shit on this one.

That was their best album since the Black album.
Agreed. The album's production is crystal clear and the songwriting is some of their strongest ever. My only issue with the album is its length. The second half gets a little winded, if you know what I mean. Still, it's a great return to form and right up there with the Black album (still can't touch Ride the Lightning and Master of Puppets though).
I’m a big fan of Justice too.

You might not agree with me but I've never been able to get over the awful production. That album desperately needed bass. I often wonder how Cliff would have felt if the next Metallica album didn't have bass. The songs are great though (Harvester of Sorrow is a stone cold classic).

Sounds better this way...I've been hoping the band would do something official, but I don't think we should hold our breath.

To be honest, I never noticed the production until years later after people started bitching about it. It’s a great album as is IMO but I would like to hear it with more bass. Death Magnetic’s production was shit! I can’t even listen to that one.

I was never really a fan of Elvis, but I really do admire him these days. The man simply defined charisma. That's a thing 'some' singers will never have. ;)
