PRR hooked me, I'm on the can't wait list.  Although Victorious Cupid was released for free last year, so no need to wait for that.

I bought this album on a whim, and boy, I was pleasantly surprised.

The Dark Third was so amazing on the first listen, but has had a pretty steady decrease since then. I'll still be checking this out though. No crazy expectations from me.

I've got a stamp for 1 free cd at the local cd-store. This is what I've been saving it for for 6 months now. Sadly I can't get it from them until 13th or 14, that is, if they've got it by then.

Meh... I guess I'll be down to listen but I'm not buying it... the first one was pleasant enough but it's nothing outstanding imo.

Probably not surprising since this is somewhat progressive pop, but I am in the column of PAers who really enjoyed The Dark Third.  It had quite a bit of wow factor for me, so I am looking forward to this new release too.

I bought The Dark Third for a dollar.  Turned out to be quite a find.  Thumbs Up
 
I understand they've had some major lineup shifts since then.  Suppose that will affect their sound?
 
 
BRUTAL.

I hear the new album is much more electronic. Very few guitar riffs.

^Yes. It's basically electro-rock with some three part harmonies and extended song lengths.
 
I love The Dark Third. I still love it. It started to have a decrease as in Pat's case, but over the past couple of months I've been rockin' it a lot lately and it's as good as it's ever been (especially tracks 6-8). This new stuff is pretty darn weak, though. It's not terrible, but I'm getting nothing out of it. This new Superball label seems to be watering down great bands (The Amber Light and this one so far). I really hope Oceansize's new album maintains their high standards.

pity if they changed their sound so soon after the excellent dark third..why on earth would they do that when their hard edged floyd tinged formula has worked so well so far..so if the new album is indeed weaker and more electro..then it is a pity..will have to wait and see...

Sweet! I loved "The Dark Third" but I hated "Victorious Cupid" when I listened to it on their myspace, so we'll see...
INVOLVED: Electronic/Ambient/Progressive music. A collaboration between member of the post-rock collective BATTLESTATIONS and I. Enjoy!

Seems to have been a long time coming this one, but i'll be interested to hear it. I loved The Dark Third but I'm put off rushing out to buy this one with all the talk of a more electronic approach.

^ Progression: only good when not progressing away from progressive rock.
