Man I can't wait to hear this. Copy is supposed to arrive today. Holding out until I get it, but these descriptions are making my mouth water. The Anniversary! ATDI! Built to Spill! "really really prog"! Tao of the Dead!

i know there is a larger pitchfork thread but wanted to bring it up here. 6.8 is insanely low for how good this is. https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/the-world-is-a-beautiful-place-and-i-am-no-illusory-walls/

I've yet to hear all of Always Foreign, but given the general fan reactions I've seen and read, I'm surprised that's the one with the highest Pitchfork score of the last three albums proper.

(or maybe I shouldn't be, but point being that doesn't seem to match up with the general vibe among fans)

I'm enjoying the two longer tracks on this - finding them warmly soporific. I caught a whiff of The God Machine on an earlier track, which kept me interested.
