    Level of enthusiasm for this album, gents? I think I've heard about half of it so far....I actually love what I've heard. Pleasantly surprised.

    I don't quite understand why DM and Running were the singles though, especially Running. Looking forward to tonight. 
    I'm anxious to hear the album tonight, especially after reading the reviews.

    also looking forward to it. Unfortunately missed the listening party on Sunday cause I was out. Actually Nick from the Preston and Steve show was at the one I would have gone to in Phoenixville. Also gonna miss tonight cause I'm playing volleyball. Would have gone to the KoP theater though. I guess I'll have to wait till Friday. :neutral:

    what theater did you go to?

    I almost had night 1 tix in my grasp from fan to fan. When i went to checkout though the credit card I normally use wanted to call/text me to verify. They had two old phone numbers (one was one I haven't had in like over 20 years and the other was an old work phone number. So that kinda sucked and I had to release them and call my credit card company to have them update my phone #, Kinda annoying but least I found out now rather than later. Also saw two pit tix on fan to fan for night 2, but someone beat me to that one :sad:

    Ranger Suarez looks fantastic! Just need Castillanos and Harper to start hitting

    Harper had a homer and 3 RBI's didn't he? I was mostly watching the Flyers (whomp whomp) and helping my son with homework.

    Heard Wrecker - it's fine I guess. Glad you liked it Juggs! You're one of the more anti-post 2000 PJ music people here IMO.

    yeah he played well last night (finally) but overall not up to par, IMO.

    I saw it in Warrington. The sound wasn't as immersive as I hoped it would be.

    Wrecker's pretty good...more Petty-ish than anything. Better songs than that on the album though. 

    Johnny I'm not anti 2000 PJ. I liked Gigaton. Just not a fan of LB or Backspacer.

    Fair enough. Those albums leave a bit to be desired.

    Same. I also just realized I guess I got 'Running' as a download for buying the vinyl from 10C. Also, realizing they should just give me a digital version of the album due to the price of this thing.

    I think they give you the whole album when it's out... which doesn't explain why we just got a dl for a song that came out a month ago.

    Nice sweep. Hopefully first of many. Redeemed my Phillies 5k ticket offer for last nights game and got rewarded with that gem from Ranger. Is this the beginning of the Ranger Cy Young campaign?

    Album is much better than Gigaton, imo.  
    Some songs I'm looking forward to hearing live, which is fun to think of.  
    Can't say I love Wreckage so far but some of the others I very much like.

    The love he receives is the love that is saved

    Wait, so we *will* get the whole album? This would be the normal, cool thing to do.

    I think so - I bought the album, not the Running single, so it would be weird if they just provided the Running single. (again, which came out like a month ago)

    Oh and the vinyl isn't coming until Monday. Whatever I basically just stream everything. I have years to go to get my house back to sit in the leather chair and just listen to records smoking a cigar. (just kidding I could never smoke indoors)

    You know what cracks me up is all the different color vinyls. It's called "Dark Matter" - maybe just make the vinyl, like, black?

    I like Gigaton but, yeah, I agree it's a lot better. Probably their most consistent album from start to finish since the 90's.

    Hmmmm, good point. I prop up Riot Act & Binaural, especially Binaural, pretty high, too. 

    I have to listen to this whole album and get back to you.

    So they do give you the album. And the option for FLAC at that. Sweet.

    Album's growing on me, quickly - definitely blows Backspacer-through-Gigaton out of the water.

    btw I don't know how much of a nerd any of you guys are for audio, but I've really leaned into the nerdom lately (without having a huge wallet for investing in this stuff). I've gotten into what I would call "value budget audiophile" equipment over the last 4/5 years, and kinda wish I did it earlier. I know there are peeps that invest like $10/20k+ in this stuff (and maybe they're in here, and hell yeah btw!), but I don't see myself ever doing that.

    Listened to it twice. First impression, i liked it a lot. There were a few songs I didn't care for at first (Won't Tell and Upper Hand). Maybe they'll grow on me. Did like Scared of Fear, React/Respond and Waiting for Stevie a lot.
