yeah, it's on slsk, too.  it's really good.  and though i haven't listened to it enough yet, i think with subsequent spins it could overtake when the pawn...

tidal just isn't as good as either of these.

This album is FANTASTIC. What the fuck? It sound accesible to me, what were the record label thinking?

Yeah the second one isn't as great, but it does have some extra tracks (like B-sides and such) I hadn't heard before.

yeah, hey thanks for the heads up on the lesser quality tracks as that coincidentally were the versions i downloaded earlier.  i actually had to leave as soon as i got them and posted the news so i'm just really hearing it for the first time now.  it sounds much better than i had thought it might from the earlier leaked versions.  i dont even remember what the hell i was looking for when i came across it.  i was pretty shocked to find it though because i hadnt heard any word of the entire thing leaking and had been checking soulseek every once in a while without any luck.  so, glad to be of some help here, guys.

On Geekdreams the first track "Not About Love" doesn't work, it plays the first few seconds and cuts out, or at least it did that for me.

The rest work fine.

I can see why a record label would call this "unmarketable".  It is not bite sized and easy to swallow.  This album makes me want to slink around the house barefoot with a cigarette in one hand, and a Manhattan in the other.

Fiona's music is an experience, not a hit single.  
(I'm still partial to When The Pawn though...)
Classic.

:yabbse-thumbup:

it is reprehensible that sony is not allowing this to be released.  once again, people with subpar taste in music are running the show.  

i'm so glad that its at least been leaked...

Best album of the year (so far). I wish I hadn't heard Extraordinary Machine and Better Version of me out of context of the rest of the album, because if I'd listened to the whole thing straight through for the first time with no idea what to expect, I think..well, I have no idea what I'd think. But this is one beautiful record.

it's no when the pawn..

but like sum great albums, it will take many listens to really distinguish between tracks. a lot of it sounds like she never got off the piano and just kept recording the next song with the same music and everything. i dunno, i hav to read the lyrics as well.

There are four songs that I can't get enough of: Not About Love is one of them, along Extraordinary Machine and Better Version Of Me; the fourth is Oh Well, which has that perfectly guttural orchestral climax in the last third that takes my breath away.

Pubrick is right, many of the other songs blend in to each other, which isn't a bad thing. I don't mind listening to them over and over again to discover their subtleties.

Liner notes would be nice, though.
