^ It's less impressive and more niche, I think, like when a podcast host doesn't make the New York Times best seller list but brags about his Amazon sales rank. But Al is otm; it's still something to point to

I put this on my "best of 2012" Spotify playlist and then kind of ignored it for a couple of weeks

I came back to it today and holy shit, I like this even more than I did when I first played it

I have only just (finally) got around to listening to this and yes, it is amazing.

yes!

i keep wanting to play people "faith" but something about it all feels like it's not right to hear "faith" before you've heard the tracks that precede it.

god "Automatic" is fantastic

'Faith' is big, but there's something about the climax of the song at the end that trips me up a bit. It's like the drums come in half a beat later than expected. I've only listened to it a couple of times, mind.

Also, 'Black Lipstick' and 'Bombs' are a really cool 1-2 at the beginning. Some of the deeper cuts have yet to connect with me, but I'm willing to put more effort in. Also, SMFU is amazing.

SMFU is one of my favs; I love how minor it is. It's just this moving little song tucked toward the back of the album, a breather of sorts before the finale

Evan R, Wednesday, 23 May 2012 05:23 (2 years ago) Permalink

It's all about Change for me. It's the wibbly wobbly Four Tet remix singing bells in the background with those subtle firework vocal harmonies at the front.

Surprised you like Faith so much, Lex. It has a slight touch of the Calvin Harris fake-rave to it. It's those handclaps that annoy me. Like guys, I live the sound of the Roland as much as anyone, but what was great about the TR series was you could change the strike velocity for a good build. Try it with those damn handclaps instead of having them on 10 the whole time!

But this is a minor quibble with an otherwise amazing album. There's not a duff song here. Even the slow burners. Especially thd slow burners. I mean - Scripture? DAMN!

i listened to the new track once & it was awesome but this dreadful working-in-an-office stint is so unconducive to listening to music, i don't know how people cope

i think i love "faith" a lot because of its position in the album - it's a tremendous work of build-and-release in its own right but also within the context of the whole thing. i wouldn't nec isolate it as the album's most impressive song ("black lipstick" or "scripture" imo) but the sheer rush it elicits is perhaps armor on's most impressive moment

liberté, égalité, beyoncé (lex pretend), Wednesday, 23 May 2012 09:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

OTM, 'Faith' works because there's only one of it and it's perfectly timed within the flow of the album. It's like dropping a big anthem at exactly the right point in a DJ set as opposed to just playing back-to-back big anthems with deadening effect.

yeah i saw the video on MTV Jams last night and was like "what is this? oh, that song? it's a single? huh?"

Mercer Finn, Wednesday, 23 May 2012 14:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

i think "smfu" (the non-remix) was a single before "december sky" but none of us noticed it at the time. dawn keeps tweeting cryptic things that make me hopeful that a video for "automatic" might be imminent?

Oh! the new track has that singing bowls sound that I was loving so much on it.

Also crazy disco string arpeggios. I am loving the attention to detail on the production of this thing.

Dixie Narco Martenot (White Chocolate Cheesecake), Wednesday, 23 May 2012 17:58 (2 years ago) Permalink

new track is brilliant.

she said on twitter it was swapped from the EP for "change", which was prob the right decision thematically

she's a very lucky girl that "tryna turn me on cos you think i'm operatic" happens to be a better/funnier/truer lyric than "operational" like she was fumbling for

Ahhhh how had I not listened to "wild 'n' young" before now??? I want dawn to make these overwrought percussive epics 4eva.

I'm actually running a little cold on this one. It's repeats a lot of Armor On's motifs without adding much to them

Evan R, Tuesday, 17 July 2012 16:05 (2 years ago) Permalink

it's even more structureless, which is reading as a plus to me right now

lol yes. does anyone do remixes that take all the dance elements of a song OUT?
