Here's the lowdown. This Canadian band's album just released yesterday. And the funny thing is I've only heard snippets of their older shit so I don't even know if they're worth the hype or not. But from what I hear from others and reviews, this concept album is supposed to rock pretty hard. I've yet to find a link or a torrent and I'm not about to pay some Canadians for an album that might not even be worth it.

All right enough containing my excitement to show my gratitude. Really looking forward to this.

I'm not entirely sure who you are over there (you don't go by your s/n here, over there do you?), but I have a few guesses. I guess you never know, there might be something I haven't checked out, that you're into. Let me know.
Do you have a rateyourmusic or last.fm? granted, my last.fm PLAYLIST is bs cuz the mp3 player I use (Creative Zen) never has sync-ed with it, and I uninstalled winamp when it was freezing my pc up constantly. But I recently started adding artists to MY LIBRARY.
here's my page: http://www.last.fm/user/SoundscapeMN
but my rym and and allmediareviews blog is really where everything else is that is or is not yet something I posted on a board.
afa this new album..i posted something on the rym page about it yesterday..it's gonna require multiple times hearing it before I'm clear on how I feel, but initially I am not being blown away like I am hoping to be. BROKEN CITY is a great record no matter, but who knows if it will be an album I play even 1/2 as much as that.

That's a shame to hear that the new album's disappointing though. I've heard about half of the first one, and it's awesome so far.

2+ times through this as it was made available digitally on Tuesday
It's growing on me..but I guess 1 thing is for sure..the guys definitely were going at things from an ALBUM's approach, vs a lot of SONGS. In a way..reminds me of stuff like House of Fools or The Dear Hunter..even Kaddisfly in that the result does eclipse the sum of all the parts. "Demise" is maybe the most reminiscent of the other BS stuff I love..has a really kickass interplay between piano and guitar riffs.
I like every song..and a few tracks have little sections that are worth waiting for.
Lot of classic rock influences like Rush, Elton John, Styx..even a group like The Byrds or Deep Purple with some organ..and of course the Queen moments aren't really at a shortage.
More concept or "suite" like ABBEY ROAD perhaps..than I am used for these guys..but at the same time, I dunno if it'll fall lower into the category some other great bands seemed to this year of just making underachieving records (Klimt 1918, Russian Circles, Janus, Mt.Helium..a lot of others I don't have the time rattle off yet).
7.5/10 right now..for new fans it may be okay to start..for fans of BROKEN CITY and the s/t ep..I'd suggest not expecting exactly the same kind of stuff..vocal lines..crescendos..not at least at the same level...but it's more epic than anything they've ever done in that respect.

Highly recommend people watch this newly released Documentary of their tour of Canada in 2007. It really shows how it can be for bands that struggle to get through a tour at their (and many of the bands shown as well) level of success (or lack of).
