I like the new single, though they said Tom Waits was an influence on the new album? How? If it's just a hat tip because they're on ANTI-, that's cool.

Got "No Known Drink or Drug" emailed to me b/c of my pre-order. Not bad. Not as good as the title track. Looking forward to the hear the whole record.

Just now giving it a listen, but the title track is everything I want from a Japandroids song.

Re: Japandroids - Near to the Wild Heart of Life [Jan 27]

Haven't had a one-sitting listen, but like it so far. The title track is best so far for fist pump anthems. This won't top Celebration Rock in that department, but I'm liking the rest in it's own right. I have the feeling it will get more front to back play than much of their other records.

Are ya digging it?

Got my DL today in my email.

Pretty tame by comparison to their other albums, but really good.

I like North South East West track a lot right now.

The Ringer nails it. There's nothing deep and artsy here, it's just a fun record to listen to.

B-Side of the 7"

Love -> Building on Fire.

It's pretty good... cool sound. Not a lot of high low points dynamically, but well done.

Their cover of Big Black's Racer X is still my favourite.

It took me about 4-5 listens to really get deep. Loving it. Its not pure fire like CR, but its a winner.

Re: Japandroids - Near to the Wild Heart of Life [Jan 27]

It's really good, and is being underrated by reviewers. Not nearly as derivative as they claim.

Re: Japandroids - Near to the Wild Heart of Life [Jan 27]

I liked that Ringer review for the most part... have the others been less positive?

It's easy to hear Japandroids and think simple, raw, immediate rawk in 1-2 dimensions

However, I find their layering choices, sounds, lyrics to often be young/restless but also wise/profound on a certain level.

I also appreciated that even with the overdubs, addition of synths, etc., that it still sounds like a band and that I would translate well live. Sometimes the album is so produced that I lose the immediacy and visceralness to it.

Reviewers will miss this realness that I crave 9 times out of 10.

Re: Japandroids - Near to the Wild Heart of Life [Jan 27]

Most reviews I've seen boil down to "we've heard this record before, it's just not as good." Even the reviews that are trying to be glowing saying "it's lame, and we know it's lame, but that's why we love it!" really undersell how good the album is.
