    I'm usually a sucker for vinyl boxes, but this one didn't grab me. I like the simplicity of the box over the vinyl sleeve, but it's just filled with a lot of stuff I wouldn't want. Wouldn't have minded getting the white vinyl, but being able to grab the black vinyl in a brick-and-mortar store was easy enough for me. Not a fan of the blue/red set. Maybe if the colours weren't so vibrant.

    I know but still. Just another way to squeeze out money for die hards. I legit would’ve bought it on release day 4/20 had it been available but I preordered the basic vanilla black vinyl edition they offered since it was all they had minus the indie white press.

    Yeah, I just saw the unboxing for the box set and I gotta admit - that prism thing is actually really intriguing. What a cool way to make someone put their phone down and listen to/watch the album. Hmm.

    If you put the prism up to the sunlight and shine the rays onto the Pumpkins' Teargarden By Kaleidyscope vol. 1 obelisk, you summon up James Iha, who then promptly leaves your band

    So, Iím a huge fan of this album. Even the parts I was initially cold on grew on me. The one disappointing thing Iíll say is that it has too many ďtouchstoneĒ songs for me. Mostly, I think, because we heard so much of it pre-release.

    Iím sure most of you know what I mean. Songs that place where youíre at on an album or maybe a go-to song that the songs in-between kind of seem like flyover country.

    Been playing the new album on a loop for over a week. Prefer the second half of the album to the first, feel like I have to study the lyrics to the songs which I don't normally do.
    Booked my tickets for June and December

    I don't know about you guys ut I can stop playing this new record, not sure why because I can see many flaws in there but this is still a pretty damn catchy record with some great moments, quite enjoying it, i guess i missed APC more than I thought.

    I hate to take the magic and mystery away from it, but the entire "Jimmy Kimmel Live" show is pre-recorded, actually.

    The new album is good. It's not the best album I have heard by a Maynard and Billy collaboration but it is far from mediocre. I think a lot can be said about having fire in the furnace at their age. None of these guys are hungry for success like they were in the 90s and early 00s. Yet they managed to create a very mature album that is an enjoyable listen 14 years removed. It could have very easily been fan service. Though I don't think Maynard has the mentality to do that regardless, my expectations still weren't very high, which rewarded with a pleasant surprise.

    Edit: Now I say that and yet, admittedly, my expectations are beyond unrealistic for Maynard's other band. But perhaps that is due more to the musicians involved than Maynard. But that's a discussion for the other thread.

    Most televised performances usually are.

    Most late night talk shows are recorded in the afternoon/early evening. Itís fairly obvious as you can see by the apc performance: itís daylight.

    i'm confused, are people not understanding that late-night talk shows aren't actually broadcast live, or are people saying that the musical performance itself was "taped" and they were just lip-syncing and pretending to play their instruments?

    Oh, i didnít even think about that. I assumed they meant that it wasnít broadcast live. Given the amount of roadies I saw working on stage it didnít even cross my mind that the performance itself was taped but I suppose itís entirely possible, albeit incredibly disappointing.

    that's why i was confused. i've watched plenty of late night musical performances from the last 20 years or so and they have never seemed "taped" to me, so idunno.

    Yeah, lots of shows in Europe are playback (Top of the Pops comes to mind). Muse were definitely protesting/taking the piss by them all switching band roles for it.

    I can't imagine APC did a 5 song mini-concert that was all playback (they continued to play songs after the taping). That doesn't even seem plausible.

    *edit, not to turn this into the Muse thread, but they always do outrageous things when forced to lip synch, or even when they were told not to swear (they didn't even have any songs with bad words at the time), Matt decided to change most words in the second verse to fuck. No wonder why some shows only allow playback heh.

    Nothing beats Kurt Cobain going full Morrissey with "Smells Like Teen Spirit".

    Maynard’s vocals definitely sounded recorded to me. Even look at the very small handful of snippets during Kimmel where you can see his lips move. Something was “off” from him at least.

    There are effects on his vocals. Possibly autotune but it sounds too chorus-y to be professional live autotune imo. Plus, remember, the video and audio are recorded, mixed, and combined later. As stated, itís not live so the sound is often mixed again after the performance and before it airs.

    Most live performances on talk shows and music shows have pre-recorded studio vocals and instrumentals.
