Yeah definatley. It seems alot more stripped back compared to their previous albums. Quite a change.
Suppose we will have to wait until the albums out to hear any more!

Hmm interesting.

Cant really judge on a 30 second clip, but I hope they're not going in some White Stripes/The Strokes direction

Way to steal my post. That's messed up man.

I'm pleasantly surprised by the sound of this.

TMV like to troll, so it might not even be real.

I'll take those 30 seconds over anything they've done in the past two albums so they best not be trolling.

Bedlam was a great album I agree, Im looking forward to see how the album pans out.
Im sitting on the fence with the snippet, neither love it or hate it. Didn't have the WOW factor I was expecting.
But cant make the judgement based on such a small sneak peak!

I would like something like De-loused again, but I know they are never gonna go that route. That album was their most surreal. Frances second. I also really liked Octahedron, that one is full of beautiful melodies. They should utilize those more. Love this band, can't wait.

TMV has yet to put out a bad album, so I'm gonna pass on the teasers and listen to the whole thing when I have it in my hand Smile To me Octahedron was their second peak after Comatorium, it'll be interesting to hear this one.

I've listened to Malkin Jewel about 6 times overall, and i still think it's really great. From the bridge onward it really gains momentum and hits perfection.

Oh f**king hell. Last summer Trinkets Pale of Moon was a mindblowing 15 minute epic. Now it's a rather boring 4 minute song. They just cut the best 10 minutes off.
