I don't think I'm going to listen to anymore tracks or snippets until the album is released. Not making any moral stand point or anything - I just want to keep some element of surprise.

Anyway, as you were...

I like the sound of Auto-Intoxication. As usual I'll wait till it comes out before deciding whether it's shite or not.

Anyone passing an opinion, good or bad, based on 30 seconds of a song probably doesn't take music very seriously.

What if they're passing an opinion on that 30 seconds?

A Billion Balconies Facing the Sun and Don't Be Evil sound very promising! The former's solo sounds epic.

It's the MP3 album that has the previews, rather than the CD or Vinyl...

And welcome to the forum manicmoo, very amusing username. A-moo-sing (sorry)

Hard to tell how good the songs are, but from the tone of them I'm worried that on tour motown junk will be replaced with indian summer and and they'll do archives of pain but with the whole solo played on hammond organ

Some of them sound shit and some so-so. I hope my negative reaction is based on the fact that, as has been pointed out numerous times, they are only 30 sec clips and that the sound quality wasn't that great.

We're all going to buy the album anyway mind, so fuck sake.

I think all the clippets sound great. True you can't tell if its going to be a classic album from 30 seconds but I can hear enough to know that most the songs aren't "shit". Seems to be a really negative attitude around these comment boards . . . Not the place to come for an early morning giggle.

Thanks Porco! I will have a listen later when I can turn it up!
The negative reaction is strange to me, but hey everyone hears something different.

Most of the clips sound quite promising to me.

Kind of excited that the demo version of "Some Kind of Nothingness" is sung by Nicky...
