I apologize if our exchange was distracting, but if I'm disrespectfully treated, I'm not going to ignore it.

I do feel that kind of deeply personal invective is completely inappropriate for this forum, but I'm biased.

I try to be nice, but I kind of wish I'd let loose with both barrels, since there are no consequences and it would have felt more satisfying than taking the high road.

From that interview Slipkid just posted, we may be getting that 12th track after all! "Soldier." They're "releasing it a different way. Maybe this is what's behind vault #15?

Ok, listening to the stream. First play-through and I'm only at Dirty Water which I LOVE. La Dee Da is amazing too.

Same here. Not expecting any notification today either. In my experience Live Nation merch isn't the best for getting things out on time.

So the vault is playing the full album and for me, this is the one of the best albums they've done under this lineup! The sounds are so varied! Only had one listen though, but I've never felt like this listening to a Foo record.

It's nothing like their old stuff, and this time, that doesn't matter.

It's so different! It feels like a Wings album or something. For me most of their branching out and trying new things in the past just hasn't worked. This album works.

It's fun to listen to, and you can tell they had fun making it. There's a certain energy to it that was really lacking in SH. I'd probably place it like this at the moment:

1 ST
2 TCATS
3 TINLTL
4 C & G
5 WL
6 OBO
7 IYH
8 ESPG
9 SH

I agree about the variation - there's a lot of styles going here, but it just all fits.

First impression, very very positive

T-SHIRT!! i was looking forward to this one cause i liked the lyrics and i loved it!
Make it right: didn't expect something like that, great surprise!
Sunday rain: i feel like it's much better live, but i've only listened to it once
La Dee Da is awesome. The more mellow moments are nice! There are different songs and they make an interesting record. ..and what was that at the end of C&G?!!

About the guests, i was getting a little worried that it would turn out to be a Foo Fighters & Friends record, but it was more subtle,nice contributions though! Even though i liked SH, this time i just wanted a Foos record and we got it!!

I'm kind of pleased you guys haven't had a dispatch notice, because neither have I and now I'm worried because my order says fulfilled differently to everyone elses!
