I thought about that too. Then I remembered I don’t have a record player

And your problem is?

I have got to the point now where my super- smug car cd player has eaten my frost cd, and has locked me out of my own world, because I don't know it's stupid unlock number, but I don't care because I can hear it in my head anyway... So I win (ish..)!

And trying to make it see reason is  pointless...

Needless to say, am very much looking forward to this. Not least because I may (cough) have played the tiniest of roles in helping connect John and Jem with a certain Death Eater friend of mine who is reputed to appear on the album  ;)

As for "Terrestrial", Frost*tastic indeed, with some of the guitars and keyboard textures a throwback to EIMA in the best possible way. Marvellous.

That said, is it just me, but does the YouTube version sound a lot more centred, compressed, and "denser" than the Spotify one? I'm not very good at A-B listening, but the Spotify version sounds a lot airier and open to me. Both are in stereo and both compressed by definition, but the Spotify version is my choice for now.

Can't wait to hear the CD version. I wonder if there's any chance of Day And Age being released in hi-res audio too though :-)

Really interested that the review speaks of influences from The Police and I'm reminded that John & Jem were talking about The Police a bit in the podcasts recorded during their writing sessions.

Also curious as to why those podcasts disappeared...
