My friend in Canada made a fake US itunes account. I don't know how easy it is to do that but it may be worth a shot. It worked for her.

My initial favorites after a caffeine-fueled, late night first listen (subject, perhaps destined, to change): Stay Vicious, Stray Paper, Red Violins, Break Your Heart, and Have Mercy.

I would also add that Sweet Morphine and Mama's Boy's sounded like they could become favorites, once I work out the lyrics. I do see why they are bonus tracks, as they're way too folksy compared to the rest of the album.

Also, I can't see this becoming the definitive version of Halloween for me. People complained about the production of the fan club version, but this one sounds worse to me, Brian's vocals sound even weaker than the live recording, and Laura-Mary Carter's backing vocals really bumped the original up a notch, I think.

Okay, that's all for tonight.

If someone finds a (legal, forum friendly!) way to listen to this outside of the US without having to use iTunes, please share! I'm stuck in work all day without access to iTunes!

I think somewhere along the line after American Slang our boy Fallon forgot how to write decent fast paced songs. I'm not sure I've ever come across a record that relies so heavily on the second half to hold it up (and that's only when counting the Deluxe iTunes version as a whole). With the exception of Get Hurt and I suppose Stay Vicious if I'm being generous; up until Red Violins the first half of this album belongs in a trash can not on a record player. Everyone got so up in arms about the press' reaction but I really do think the indifferent reception is justified. Maybe if they were wedged between the better tracks of the album it wouldn't be so bad but in the first half you've got this block of 4-5 utterly dire stadium rock songs that with their use of cringey forced special effects are trying too hard to be different to anything they've done before ultimately ending up tarnishing the record greatly.

If Sweet Morphine, Mama's Boys, Halloween, and Have Mercy were swapped in for 1000 Years, Helter Skelter, Rollin' & Tumblin', Underneath the Ground (and I guess Stray Paper can stay just if the oooooh's and aaaaaah's become tolerable) you'd have a fucking masterpiece. One that would still show a lot of progression in the band's sound and improved musicianship whilst being able to hold true to what made the fans fall in love with this band in the first place.

The good songs on Get Hurt are superior to the good songs on Handwritten but there's just as much if not more filler. In 6 months time I worry this album might just gather dust in the back of my mind much like Handwritten did. I'd hate to think what TGA greats are being replaced from the setlists for the shows to make room for a lot of this gimmicky crap.

I think what hurts the most is after the astounding quality of the songs MATZ put out I jumped right back on the Gaslight/Fallon bandwagon and tricked myself into thinking something a long the lines of "Okay we can pretend Handwritten never happened. Everything is fine in the fanboy world."
If tragedy struck and for whatever reason TGA was no more after the release of American Slang they'd be forever remembered without argument as one of the greatest bands to have graced the planet.

So I'm not crazy. I mean I'm not complaining, I love Lorde. I really liked that song.

It's a shame this has leaked. I know many leak downloaders will buy the album too but many will take their free rip off whatever site is streaming it and be content with stealing, which is what it is I guess. Give the band their due and buy it guys. People who have been excited for so long about the album surely could have waited one more week to hear their own copy. I know the band will likely be annoyed by this leak and rightly so. As much as I'm looking forward to it and especially after some favourable reviews, I'll be waiting to have a real copy not some download. Shame on those who leaked it.

I have not listened and probably will not until a physical copy is in my hand. Looking forward to hearing it and either hating or loving it Smile

I've pre-ordered several versions and plan on STILL going to a local store on release day to buy another copy. Trust me, I've put in more money than most have on this. Besides, I'll most certainly delete the leak and again, buy another copy directly from iTunes. I don't know if it's quite fair to shame those who are downloading the leaks.

After 3 listens I absolutely love this album. It's certainly going to push some people away but it's also going to bring a lot of people in.

The only song I didn't get was underneath the ground. Stray Paper, Dark Places and Stay Vicious are my favorites so far.

I agree that downloading leaks is never good.

But think let's see it from the other side, a lot of people have been hyped for this album for months and are dying to listen to it (same goes for me) And then it turns out you can't stream it because it's US only. This is not the bands fault, it's the record company and they should have made it available for everyone.

Then again I have pre-ordered the deluxe version on CD and Vinyl.

Their label putting the album up for stream only on the US iTunes is an invite for people outside of the US to illegally download it in my eyes. It's bloody 2014, what's the point in country exclusivity!?

I think i'm out after this record.

After 2 times listening through the whole album besides the awesome "Underneath the Ground" nothing really stuck in my head. Mostly generic sounding pop/rock songs with no ideas after the 2nd minute. Not Bad, though, but really nothing special...

"Break Your Heart" is just horrible cheesy and "Halloween" still has been best in its first released version: Fallon on acoustic guitar.

"1000 years", "Get Hurt" & "Rollin and Tumblin" are solid songs that i may play every now and than, but the rest is - in my opinion - mostly forgettable...

just my opinion on this, i nevertheless respect the boys willing to go into this direction musically but heres the point where i say good by Smile
