  • I'm so excited for this era... haven't stopped playing it! However, on one hand I'm a bit surprised at the lack of innovation (it's very radio friendly, perhaps their most radio friendly, considering today's sound) we are used to hearing with new material from them... on the other hand, I'm glad they are having fun and simply "doing them & their 'sound.'" Pretty sure other tracks on the album will be even more loud and have more oomph!  :x
  • Got home in time to order my signed copy. Phewwww. Now listening to Anymore over&over again. Verrrrrry Black Cherry. Thank you Alison and Will ^:)^

  • Somehow many seem to agree on a certain style of electro sound this year.

    Be patient.

    Supernature was like that, you know.
    For all we know, the rest of the album might be completely different!

  • Interesting comment from a few days ago by someone that we have yet to see anyone's eyes. In this Hi Def bush in her face (@HJ :)>- ), she appears to have her eyes shut.

  • No more signed CDs - all mention of them are replaced by regular CDs. They must have already sold 1000... wow. That's pretty intense.

    I was wondering when All Night Operator Part 2 would come out! Ha! I bet that was a callback to it.
  • I am practising Zen- like restraint... Seriously. So I've got home from work, I'm checking in here, I've been to preorder the album ( but everything's sold out, sigh...). And I HAVENT YET listened to Anymore!!!! I'm going to do that at 8.15 on the dot, with a mouthful of chocolate and red wine and lying naked on my bed of nails for the full endorphin-rush aural sex experience. It'd better be good lol!
    ( as if it would be otherwise!)
  • Mmm, that sounds very nice Kat- best to have all your senses stimulated...Cheers ;)

    Have to agree here, I've listened to the song several times, while it works as a single I'm hoping the album will be a bit more complex than 'Anymore'. Its a fun song, I love the synths and mastering, however the lyrics seem overly simple/repetitive, and the sound is too similar to supernature to stand on its own. However I'm sure Alison deliberately chose the simplest song on the album in the hopes it will get the most radio play. The other track titles sound far more interesting to be this simplistic. Probably not the most popular opinion on release day but I certainly don't think its bad, and will be listening to it for the next few days. Really excited for the full album!!
