I heard a few track from it and I don't think it'll live up to their first album, but I have faith it will still be good.
As for Katatonia...Dead End Kings is really good. I bought my LPs some time ago and it'll be in regular rotation when the new system comes in.
I recently paid $50 per LP for a few things...but CDs? Jeez. New SACDs don't even cost that most of the time.
All Killer No Filler brings back memories for me. I still have a soft spot for those psuedo Punk 90s bands like Sum 41.
Thanks a lot, the only one I have mixed feelings about is The Mars Volta one, though I haven't completely heard it yet, it's just so strange, I mainly picked it up because it was with 50% discount so for All Killer No Filler and that one I paid like $9, which is the cheapest Iv'e paid for cds, for example, today I spent $50 only on Pig Destroyer and Stone Sour... Wanted to pick up Dead End Kings by Katatonia but then it would've been like $75, plus Iv'e seen that one at other places so it can wait
I never liked synthpop/indie but Gossamer got me hooked! I really like it, I think the listen is worth it
