OK, so I'm sure that the 3 other people that use to visit this site other then my friends have abandoned coming. I haven't been posting anything for awhile in part because I got lazy and in part because I was indulging in many concerts. Just in case you want to know Lolla was great (I didn't catch Bloc Party though), I then got back home from Chicago and was asked if I wanted to hit Radiohead in Montreal (I already had tickets for their Toronto show and no money but a friend of mine was quite kind and offered me a ticket for free - so I really HAD to go) and then I got to hit the aforementioned Toronto gig. Anyways, Radiohead was awesome live at both venues but the TO show was better for me. Just because Jean Drapeau Parc was the most terrible venue I've been to and I ruined my Roswell Rayguns because of all of the mud.
Well, you probably don't really care about that right now and want to listen to this album. I'm on my second listen of it right now and my first reaction is "Better than I thought". I wasn't really hyped for this album and while "Flux" was decent "Mercury" sucked. This could be a grower even though "A Weekend In The City" is no "Silent Alarm" I still enjoy listening to it time to time.
And lastly, I hate it when bands release albums in a "Surprise fashion" and get lumped into bands like Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails and Raconteurs. The first two examples are appropriate because they did somewhat popularize a new way of releasing albums through the internet but, The Raconteurs (Even though I love Jack White) didn't really do shit, they just announced they had an album coming out in a week and shipped it to stores for you to purchase - no real innovation in that. Well, that is my opinion. Enjoy the album and expect more posts.
