I already pre-ordered the album (with the T-Shirt, Poster, and Autographed Album) so I don't feel bad about listening to it today.

Starting to listen now. I'm loving it a lot. Anneke has such a phenomenal voice, it really matches with Devin perfectly.

:lol: I didn't read the song titles before I queued the album up and that re-done version of Hyperdrive totally caught me off guard, awesome.

Lots of female vocals on this album, fuck taylor swift... Bend it like Bender (lol) could be a radio pop hit.


EDIT: ok, this album is better than Ki, but they each have their share of weak material, not saying anything is particularly bad but it doesnt really grab you either. id like to chop both of the albums up and combine the great tracks into one album.

Somebody needs to photoshop a skullet onto Lady Gaga
I've been checking 1-2 times a day for the past 10 days or so.
FUCK THIS ALBUM KILLS

About cutting the albums in half though...
These albums are very Dev. It's either all or nothing, no half "Supercrush!" and half "Demon League".

ok, it was stupid of me to say that as i didnt realize it was part of a 4 album project. plus i read the reasoning behind the albums on his blog http://www.hevydevy.com/news/ and it makes more sense now :cool:

It was frustrating to listen to Ki and waiting on Addicted to come out. Even though it was a great album, it's like a 60 minute cocktease waiting for the heavy songs.

Yes, but it turns out to be a better song, so it's ok.

ZING! But yes it's true it is a better song.

I really love Anneke's version of Hyperdrive. Sure the Ziltoid version is mean to be a sad, dark song, but Anneke makes it happier and a hell of a lot more powerful.

My favorite track is Numbered! I hate using this term because of the scenesters who use it now, but this song is fucking epic!
