Post by: euro60 on June 02, 2013, 09:16:08 PM
Holy cow, possibly the best album of the year (for me anyway)! Anyone else listening to it?

I gave it a spin. 

People who love !!!-- Will be  disappointed.
People who kinda like !!! but have never been super into them--  Will love this.
People who don't like !!!--  Will still not like !!! but will find a couple enjoyable tracks.

Basically, it's still !!!-like but also a lot more conventionally poppy.

Yeah, I think I fall into the second category as well. I will give it a spin later this week.

If you only listen to one song from start to finish, make it track 8 "Careful". THE best song of the album.

Fantastic show tonight at the Taft Ballroom (my first time there, great venue). Opener Yip Deceiver was quite nice. Then came !!! and the party was really on! They played mostly from Th!!!er and Myth Takes, and it was a massive dance party from start to finish. Despite the low attendance (I'm guessing about 150), the band gave their all, and the audience responded accordingly. Nic (the lead singer) wore his "Some Girls" Rolling Stones underpants as he always does (I sure hope he has more than one pair of those) and he led the dance party, jumping into the crowd on several occasions. Just great fun all around. So glad these guys made it to Cincinnati, only wish that there was better attendance. I saw them also in late August at the FYF fest in LA, where they played a similar set, but for a much bigger festival crowd.

omg, has it really been 4 years????

Since then, !!! has released 2 more albums, neither of which came anywhere close to the perfection that was Th!!!er.

How the years fly by....

I never really gave it a spin, but I do think that the title is genius.
