First time I heard it I was disapointed - but now on my 5th listen I am totally hooked.

What are your thoughts?

When I first heard it, I thought "what the hell is up with that echo"

two minutes later I realized that yes this is different, but it sounds so good...

now it is my favorite CD of the year by far!

Agreed....at the moment I'm so addicted to it. I'm a bit afraid that I get bored sooner or later...but right now it's all i wanna listen to.

I think it's musically and lyrically more mature than the debut. And I like the Cover-artwork!

85% of the people think it is atleast as good as a cd that punknews.org listed as one of the best releases of 2007!

It took me awhile, and it is a new sound for them, but I agree that it is sheer genuis, it just takes time for me to get nto it. Maybe I am too used to shit music, so the good music takes time to take its place!

I'm not entirely sure, but I think it's referring to the Buddy Holly curse. Take it with a grain of salt, but it makes sense. Kinda. Sorta.

As in:

On February 3, 1959, Buddy Holly (22 yrs old), Richie Valens (17 yrs
old), and the Big Bopper (29 yrs old) died in a plane crash.

On February 3, 1967, Joe Meek, Buddy Holly’s British manager committed suicide

Eddie Cochran was supposed to be on the plane with Buddy Holly. On
Easter Sunday 1960, Eddie was killed in a taxi crash. The last song he
recorded was with The Crickets (Buddy Holly’s back up group). The
Crickets were also in England at the time of the crash.

After Buddy Holly’s death, The Crickets got a new singer, Ronnie Smith,
who hung himself. The next signer with The Crickets, David Box,
eventually went solo and, in 1964 died in a plane crash at the age of
22, the same age Buddy Holly was when he died in a plane crash.

The Cricket’s next singer, Bobby Fuller was beaten to death in 1966.
The last song he recorded before his death was written by Buddy Holly.

Marc Bolan, Guitarist for T-Rex was killed in a car crash in 1977. There was a pen with Buddy Holly’s name on it in the car.

In 1978, The Buddy Holly Story, staring Gary Busey as Buddy Holly hit
the theaters. The screen writer committed suicide. Gary Busey bought a
guitar owned by Buddy Holly and was shortly thereafter involved in a
near fatal motorcycle accident.

On September 6, 1978, Who drummer, Keith Moon, saw Buddy Holly’s movie
and stayed overnight at Harry Nilsson house. He overdosed on medication
and died the next day, September 7, which is Buddy Holly’s birthday.
(As an aside, he died in the same room that Mama Cass died in 4 years
previously)

In 1979, Ricky Nelson died in a plan crash. The final song he played
was about Buddy Holly. (As an aside, Nelson bought the plane from Jerry
Lee Lewis, who sold it because he had a premonition that he would die
in a crash on that plane)

On February 3, 1990, the anniversary of Buddy Holly’s death, Del
Shannon gave his last performance. He played with The Crickets in the
same venue where Buddy Holly gave his last performance. Five days
later, Del Shannon shot himself in the head.

On February 3, 2003, the anniversary of Buddy Holly’s death, Phil
Spector, Buddy Holly’s US producer, was arrested and charged with the
bloody murder of actress Lana Clarkson.

etc. His death was pretty monumental. I mean, Don McLean wrote an ~8 minute song about music dying because of Buddy Holly's death (and a darn good song too. Gotta love American Pie).

Never heard of any of this before - but definately will take it with a grain of salt - also, American Pie is badass! So is the Violent Femmes AMERICAN MUSIC.

Or the '59 Sound is:

The album comes out in August, what exactly is The ’59 Sound

BF: That’s another one of those secrets. Those are the secrets of rock
'n' roll. You don’t ask Elvis to see his blue suede shows, ya know? You
don’t ask Bruce where Thunder Road is. It’s like, whatever a better
time is for you. Whatever reminds you of a better time. I look at 1959
like rock 'n' roll was just coming around and it was a simpler time, I
think. There were issues back then too, but there’s always issues.

This led me to read about the buddy holly crash - very sad. Buddy Holly songs are some of my favorite oldies - that'll be the day and I especially love 'Everyday.'
