    I'm hoping for one more song released (legally) before that date, to take the edge off

    It sounds like the far-reaching "I've run out of weird ways to describe the same thing" type of writing that makes me generally roll my eyes at music reviews. I'd love for this to prove me wrong, but I've read so many reviews that make these long and creative ways to describe what generally ends up sounding indistinguishable from a hundred other albums.

    Believe me, I've been excited to hear this since the day it was announced, but this doesn't really do anything to suddenly get me more hyped up for it. Been misled too many times.

    If Ahead of Ourselves is any indication, there might actually be some "weaponized noise" on this album. The entire mix distorts and jumps up in volume during the chorus of that song; it's pretty extreme for post-TDS NIN. And with a title like Shit Mirror, it *could* be a pretty extreme song.

    Y'all ever been at a protest where they use the sound cannons? Weaponized noise is definitely a thing. And the chaos that surrounded those sound cannons being used is what it brought up in my mind.

    Huh. I can honestly say that your above description makes me not want to listen to it now. Sounds extremely unpleasant and anxiety-inducing.

    With that "weaponized-noise" description, the bit from the other song released and "God Break Down the Door", i think the album will be big noisy beats with fat production over a Bowie-esque voice...

    Ahead of Ourselves is the snippet that was teased, and from hearing it at the Physical World ticket sale, Trent sings it in his usual NIN voice, somewhat quietly, through a filter. And then it gets very loud for a few bursts in the chorus.

    Weaponised noise
    I wonder if Shit Mirror is what people have been hearing through the walls of the US embassies in Cuba and China recently...

    Just remembered the Somewhat Damaged/Gitmo controversy, yikes! Reality is stranger than fun internet forum jokes

    BTW, new Death Grips LP will be out on the same day of Bad Witch, but my hype level for this DG LP is totally zero, all of the released songs was really, REALLY awful.

    I'm totally hyped with BAD WITCH because I just can't stop hearing GBDTD.

    I, myself, am enjoying the wait, and because it's only 6 songs, I think I want to wait. But if something drops officially, I won't be able to resist.

    I'm waiting. I listened to like 30 or 40 seconds of one of the new tracks at the listening station in Denver but then I stopped myself from listening any longer.

    From what I heard, though, I think this is going to be a very interesting record.

    Saving GBDTD for the first full listen hasn't really been that difficult. I haven't heard a single note or read any lyrics yet.

    Looking forward to this.

    Have you read the title of the song? If so, you've actually read the majority of the lyrics. If you only know the song by the acronym "GBDTD" and not what it stands for, then I'm truly impressed.

    Masochism is truly fascinating. I've met some who enjoy intense physical and emotional abuse, but you take it to a whole new level.

    I'll listen when amazon delivers it to my door...Which was supposed to be release day since I pre-ordered it but for some reason now they seem to be giving me this
    "Delivery estimate: We need a little more time to provide you with a good estimate. We'll notify you via e-mail as soon as we have an estimated delivery date."

    Ruh roh. Hopefully it gets here on time! I'm gonna order the huge Bad Witch bundle on Friday and I'm hoping it'll arrive by release day - but if not, I'm probably gonna get impatient and go downtown to buy a second copy to listen to that day, like I did with Add Violence.

    Hah, this is small potatoes.

    But it is true that I won't be able to resist anything official. I'm weak.

    Masochism is spoiling yourself from the whole experience. From my point of view. You feel pleasure, but in the end, it's pain.

    I personally don't want to hear anything more than GBDTD until release, and I only listened to that a few times. I want to experience the rest in context, as a whole unit. Hopefully, if any more preview songs come out between now and the 22nd, I'll be able to stick to that restraint.

    I'll download it on leak day, then gladly play my cd copy in the car when it gets here. I'm not gonna be too fussed about it either way as long as I end up hearing it.

    I honestly don't get this. How do you know you're going to wake up tomorrow? You might not. Nothing in life is guaranteed. Listen to what you can when you can.

    This was always my philosophy towards leaks, but I figured I was just rationalizing bad behavior. Good to know I'm not alone in this attitude.

    I hope we get it at least a week early, since it's being released on CD, but I don't know how physical releases are being handled these days.
