Heh!
I'm really enjoying it though it's a shame the quality on the stream isn't fantastic. At least it's not long til the real thing.

"Error!" here too.

Here's to hoping some whiz kid can get it up as a torrent!

I found one copy in HMV Bristol. Didn't see any in Zavvi, WHSmiths, Woolworths, Borders...

The promotion for this album is even less than with SfS. At least over here inthe UK. SfS had reviews in the newspapers. Imagine that!

Yeah, very annoying going to all the stores today hoping someone had the cd/dvd. They all have it on order. I'm not going to double dip, so the wait continues...

"Unfortunately, a lot of cds these days are mastered really loudly and very compressed, it's something called the Loudness War (look it up on Wikipedia) and Way to Normal is apparently the latest victim.  It's especially sad b/c previous BF releases, including recent stuff like SFS, sound pretty good.  Unfortunately there's no way to really "fix" this without going back and actually remastering the album.."

Hopefully, someone who gets the vinyl will post a nice rip of it.

Album Board / Way To Normal Thematic notes
« on: September 24, 2008, 12:31:20 AM »
I love WTN. One of the reasons I "love" it is down to the story arc of the album. We follow/observe a protagonist and try to make sense of his conflicts. Its fun, funny, sad, and a little heartbreaking.

I like discovering all the connections,and piecing together the info myself, but, I'm wondering, with many of the negative reviews popping up just simply not getting what Ben is doing, if he should give some more direct pointers/notes to the media. I'm getting a little bored of reading the same thing over and over. The Rolling Stone review a prime example.

Maybe the artwork is enough to get the point across, but I don;t think the reviewers get to see that. I worry that many will be put off of giving it a go.

What do you all think?

The guru sounds an awful lot like Ben putting on an accent. The first line especially.

I've upgraded my order to the Deluxe set.

For that first proper listen I'm betting the Vinyl will be the one to beat. If only I had a great vinyl set up. I have a great SACD set-up but unfortunatley it didn't really catch on with the release of HD. Maybe we could hope for a Blu ray release...

What a way to start the week. Tears rolling down the ol' cheeks. I just wanna write atiny bit about two songs. First, its a shame that the sound quality of the leak is flat. At least there's only a week to go.

Cologne.
I had become very used to the "big" sounding version from the "Fake leak", and as this played out I was in and out throughout noticing what was different, what was missing , what was added etc etc. But then it clicked for me. The space in the recording. The song. For the first time I felt the emotion of the song and I welled up. I really didn't expect that. Brilliant.

Kylie
A favourite of mine from the live shows. With only one play I'm saying that this is Ben's very best use of strings. When she closes her eyes and her the mind won't leave her alone... It's so cinematic! Real tears started to fall and didnt stop till starting this post. A truly GREAT song.
