    Preorder will be here tomorrow. Pretty excited. Sing Along is alright, but the other little bits I’ve heard have me pretty intrigued.

    I am quite excited as well and this write up got me even more intrigued and less fearful of the potential curveballs on this album

    New sick album out today with accompanying Netflix anime movie.

    Sound and Fury.

    Just gave the Sound and Fury a front to back listen... I loved it. Some heavy guitars, disco/euro-trash electro beats, very different from the previous albums.

    Wild album. I enjoy the mellow spacey stuff so it hasn’t totally clicked, but there is a metric shit ton going on in these songs.

    Did you order from his site?  Did they send a shipping notification?

    I don’t think it’s good.  It’s great!  Vinyl sounds really nice too!!!  Sturgill is genius.

    This may be the last time I preorder from an artist's site. This has been happening more & more. I'm a big fan, preorder from the site & it won't be here until next week. I did stream the first 3 songs on Spotify & really loved what I heard.
    I LOVE MUSIC.

    Listened to it twice through and man is this awesome. Very interested to see how he'll arrange these songs live.

    That’s part of the beauty of it. Quite a bit going on but still sounds like a 4 or 5 piece rock band could pull it off live. Dense but not crowded.

    Listened to this three times through yesterday, and twice today while doing yard chores. It’s a great album that should be listened to as a complete piece. Really enjoying it. Now, I’m waiting for the family to leave for an hour so I can spin my vinyl copy at an appropriate volume.

    Will be interested in hearing this live as well. Maybe some footage from the upcoming club shows will hit the YouTube shortly.

    Yeah, good point. One of those guys has to be playing some synth and additional percussion though, right? Especially for some of the accents that come in. The end of Remember To Breathe is what first made me think of that.

    On a side note, he's been saying in press how not jazzed he was during the time supporting Sailor's Guide. I was kinda relieved to read that, as the wife and I were at a show where this was VERY apparent. Oct 2016 at the Orpheum; he seemed bored and had zero chemistry with his band. We left about 2/3 of the way through

    Was encouraged when we saw him again at the Newport Folk Fest last year and he absolutely destroyed.

    I saw him before Sailors Guide came out... it was awesome, too bad his main guitarist Laur Joamets left.....
  • DewieCoxDewieCox Posts: 10,931
    Been trying to listen to the album as a whole til it gets good and broke in. That 1-2-3 punch at the beginning is great and what seemed like a bit of a lull with Good Look has almost become the centerpiece now and it definitely solidified that front half. Second half kicks ass too, but I just haven’t listened to it as much.

    Anybody watched the accompanying film? Pretty dang cool and wherever the thread about it being an updated DTE video is spot on. Even the Netflix subtitle generator can’t make out some of the lyrics...lol


    I’m trying to think of a bigger transition from one album to the next and I’m really struggling to come up with one. Familiar enough to keep around the people that have paid attention to his trajectory but so fresh he’s gonna grab a lot of new fans.

    Anybody notice how right down the middle the stereo panning is? It’s not dead centered but there’s nothing extreme and I’d venture to say nothing even moderately panned. Really noticed with side 2 but it’s so uniform I have to guess side 1 is similar.

    Last night I watched it for the first time. Intense and gripping. I wound up having some crazy ass dreams as a result, ha

    I'd expected to the whole thing to be similar to 'Sing Along' and rendered as anime. IMO, the movie as a whole benefitted from them mixing up the presentation styles. It remains to be seen how the album stacks up with his previous ones, but, at the very least, the creativity that went into S&F is next level.

    In his recent documentary Ken Burns described the beauty and genius of country music as being rooted in a form of music that was almost boundless in the styles and sounds into which it could/can shapeshift. Mike D, in the Beasties' autobiography, says something similar about hip hop. Sturgill has tapped into that legacy.

    Cranked through this this morning again. Just incredible. Have to snicker when I read through comments in Tool threads talking about how they’re still evolving. THIS is true evolution.

    After seeing last night's setlist, I am getting pumped for the Brooklyn show.  Anyone else here attending? 
  • dignindignin Posts: 8,902
    Love the new album.

    Ate some edibles on Saturday night and watched the Netflix anime movie on the big screen with 5.1 surround sound high as a kite. It was awesome and I would highly recommend experiencing it that way.

    Wish I could see him live for this tour. Have fun at the shows for whoever is lucky enough to see one.
