  1. This has been the most fun I've had here in years. Between that, and someone unironically using the word "snowflake," I really don't want to know what that would look like, but I can imagine. Unfortunately.
  2. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stockholm_syndrome That's a real thing that happens, not a conspiracy theory. And from that, it's pretty easy to assume that the song is about being emotionally trapped in a bad relationship. Although I'm morbidly curious about where the adoption idea came from.
  3. It's more likely that they either lost the order or misshipped and didn't want to fess up to it, so they'll make it seem like they just had oh so many orders that they can't fulfill them. Not that overselling a CD that people want on or near release date would be any better. One of my friends STILL doesn't have their regular CD, and neither of them ever heard back about the presale code issue. US pre-sale codes might not be a big deal to a lot of people, but pretty damn important when you're trying to get seats instead of GA.
  4. I think the point is more that people overpaid for a CD they didn't really want (since buying digital is way more convenient) for presale codes they didn't get.
  5. They still don't have their CDs. They were expecting to get codes for the presale, but neither got those, either. Yes, they contacted customer support, but by the time they responded (to only one of them) it was rather too late for the pre-sale. This whole thing seems like it was shoddy.
  6. Couple of my friends ordered the regular CD so they could get the pre-sale codes. Their orders were both processed for shipping the day before release, and look like they'll arrive sometime next week. That's honestly SUPER shitty to tie something as important to people as concert tickets to buying the CD direct and then not being able to deliver that CD anywhere near release date. Especially when the shipping costs half as much as the CD does.
  7. reddit is just a rehash of the same thread multiple times a day because no one reads or contributes to one after the first hour or so, and brain damage inducing memes, unfortunately. And people using downvotes to shut down conversations or avoid having them in the first place.
  8. Between floozy/woozy and Matt's misremembering of Harry Potter, I can't even.
  9. Interestingly, I canceled my pre-order quite a while ago, and JUST got the download codes for the earlier songs now. Like I really need those once the album is out. Also got the link to Spotify, which is kind of shoddy to ask someone to go to a streaming service in the email confirmation of your having paid for the album already... Also a bit nervous now, and need to go check my bank statements to make sure they didn't charge me...
  10. I don't know how I feel at all. Something about the vocals on the album bugs me all the way through, but I can't really put my finger on it. I'm wondering if I'd just heard the album straight through instead of hearing so many of the songs individually before hand if I'd like the whole better. Did having 3-4 songs that I strongly didn't connect to so early on taint my views, or am I just old and cynical. (I mean, I know I'm that last one... but is that the ONLY reason? )
  11. I always felt like hearing a little snippet of a favorite song live was more of a slap in the face. Seen a few big bands do it, and inevitably one of the songs was one I never had seen before and was dying to, and it left me feeling crappy.
  12. The site and the stores are largely separate, and the latter is (hopefully) more secure.
  13. Or he's just saying that to deflect from his inability to actually write them. Sour grapes and all.
  14. It doesn't link to the same page in the US; it just says not available outside the UK, then links to the US Store, which only has the option to pre-order. I assume the UK likely has some rules about this sort of thing that the US doesn't.
  15. If they're not going to make even a reasonable attempt at making those small shows accessible to a decent amount of fans, they absolutely should put a couple "hardcore" pleasers into the arena/stadium sets. There's just no reason not to. A crowd of radio listeners isn't going to storm out in anger because they spent 4 minutes not knowing a song. How many people do we reckon actually knew The Globalist, btw? Seeing as it wasn't a single, and wasn't even available on stuff like Spotify without a premium account. They weren't shy about playing that 10+ minute monstrosity. Anyways, plenty of other bands play a song or two for their old school crowd, and it seems to work out pretty well for them.
