  • [quote="Shallfish"]How interesting![/quote] I imagine all of your posts read by that albino alligator in an english accent. And a top hat.
  • I hear the top hatness as well.
  • haha. Thats so weird. I might photoshop a hat on that avatar.. haha
  • But not a blue bucket hat!
  • Haha, i don't want to cramp Avey's style. Edit: oh, kid grizzly has one on his!
  • I didn't take the time to read all of the pages on this thread, so I apologize, but have any new Avey songs been posted anywhere?
  • nope. I have a feeling its going to be relatively quiet until the release date.
  • I still haven't pre-ordered it yet. I need to get on that.
  • yeah! Insound is having a 15% off sale if you do it through them. Of course the sale didn't start until the day after I placed my order......
  • [spoiler]http://particleparades.tumblr.com/post/1243700719/lucky-1-by-avey-tare-im-99-positive-this-is-the ^copy-paste that into your adress bar. Here it is guys, Lucky 1. Featured on the CMJ playlist. What do you think?[/spoiler]
  • I love it! ahhhh so excited
  • I feel like i shouldn't click that. haha. Did avey tare leak that, or was it leaked by someone else? I read in a couple interviews, avey wanted people to listen to the whole album at once.
  • I want to listen to whole album through!! Gahhhh no singles please please please!
  • Ooooo vurry nice. (I would post an mp3 download here but I don't really know how this forum "rolls" so to speak <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/lol2.gif" alt=":lol:" title="lol" /><!-- s:lol: --> )
  • Anyone that's heard it can you describe it without giving too much away?? I'm so curious!1
  • I second that! Say... If you took two songs from the AnCo and it's bros.. And combined them to make it sound a little like 'Down There'.. What would they be?
  • I listened to it once, enough to be slightly confused and realize that I don't want to hear any of the album out of context. I was also slightly distracted so I cannot give a proper description but I think waiting to hear the entire album is the right choice for this one.
  • I think I like it. I have to listen to it again. However, I would also like to just hear the album in full.
  • def. waiting for album in full! though it is fun to read what people are saying
  • the album leaked today, guys. I'm listening to it right now. I might cry?
  • NOOOOO WHY DO ALBUMS ALWAYS LEAKKK -.-
  • that's just the way it is oooh yeah things will never be the same
  • thats why I want to be a hermit... reeeeeeeeee
  • The entire album or just the lucky 1 song? The lucky1 song was released by avey as a single. he has it uploaded with a video on vimeo and its own website and everything.. Not necessarily leaked. That is if you are just talked about that one song.
  • Whole album leaked, listening to it in 320... Pretty interesting.
  • definitely the whole album. Maybe I should've waited but i've already bought it on vinyl so...I don't feel too bad. I wish it hadn't leaked too but I couldn't not listen to it...Its pretty awesome, guys.
  • Good to hear that its awesome. Sad that it leaked though. Makes me feel kinda crappy. If people like Avey's music so much, why not respect him enough to wait a couple more weeks for him to release it? He hates it when things leak. Like.. Its just weird to think about. Whoever leaked it must have been a fan of avey's music. Just not avey.
  • [quote="Shallfish"]Whoever leaked it must have been a fan of avey's music. Just not avey.[/quote] Good way of putting it. I have it pre ordered in disc form and I just kind of want that to be the way I listen to it.

I have it pre ordered in disc form and I just kind of want that to be the way I listen to it.[/quote] Same here. I'm waiting until I get my physical copy to listen to it. Waiting just makes it that much better when you finally do get to hear it.
  • wow! i'm no where near as patient as you guys, I guess. You all make me feel immoral.
  • Well if you enjoyed the album, no harm done. I'm waiting because i think it'll better up the experience.
  • Alright I debated for days wether I would wait for the release or not, And in conclusion I just couldn't help myself. I don't see the harm if I've already preordered the album itself... It almost feels like those who preorder should have the right to an early download. Regardless, this album is absolutely facking fantastic. <3
  • It's not even a leak anymore, it's streaming on NPR. Reason to listen? perhaps..
  • Lol I love the diehards who insist on listening to the album as a whole, even when he releases singles, then insist on waiting for the legitimate version when it leaks, then won't listen to the album when it is streamed. I don't think Avey cares how you listen to it XD
  • for anyone who wants to listen to it: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=130512028&ref=nf#playlist">http://www.npr.org/templates/story/stor ... f#playlist</a><!-- m -->
  • there's a fairly long interview at the alligatorgland website and well it is just heart-breaking avey and his wife split up <!-- s:( --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/sad.gif" alt=":(" title="sad" /><!-- s:( --> he sounds so damn down and he's sucha nice guy and it breaks my heart! and the idear that it happened at the same time as his grandma dying god you can just hear the sadness in his voice... really sad stuff
  • I'll be praying for Avey all night long. Hes such a good guy. Totally been a role model for me. <!-- s:up: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/up.gif" alt=":up:" title="up" /><!-- s:up: -->
  • Oh no that's terrible...I feel so bad for him. He's such a good guy. My thoughts and prayers are with him. ):
  • Okay so i just watched the entire interview and i feel so crappy about it. All that negativity. But i also think its good for him. And has anyone else noticed how full-throttle hes going with this record? His half an hour explanation on his website titled "ALLIGATOR land." his mask in the video and all the pictures. Everything about the album he seems to be stressing alot. Makes me think, he probably considers this the work of his life. Like... A masterpiece i guess? I don't think he's going to do anything else solo. His heart is engulfed in darkness right now and this album explores every corner of it. Maybe he might make another album, but that probably wont be for another decade. Maybe when he experiences more things. he may meet a lovely lady. start a family like some of the anco bros. and write an album about that. Either way, whether we torrent this or order it in the mail, we should listen and respect this album like we'd respect the dead at a funerol and cherish every second of it. This is a guys life, as sad as it is.
  • I think there is some legitimate sentiment there, shallfish, in your words, though I think they might be a bit over dramatic. I find most solo albums by an respectable artist involve the heart and soul. This album, it's about the dark times in your head. That's what it reminds me of. It is certainly something to be cherished and respected. I enjoy how music for the listener is something that helps heal and it is the same way for the creator. I would be sad if this is his 'masterpiece' because I wouldn't call it that. Maybe, iw ouldn't. darn, I don't really know.
  • awww man! that sucks!! I was really looking forward to another Avey and Kria album. Not that this means it WON'T happen, but it's definitely less likely. sad <!-- s:( --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/sad.gif" alt=":(" title="sad" /><!-- s:( --> I hate when I become emotionally involved in things like this with people I don't actually know, because I want to hear all about it but there's no interview that goes that in depth... it's personal stuff anyway. I hope he finds happiness!
  • I feel really sad now.
  • For those of you who haven't watched the interview and the lucky1 video yet: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://alligatorland.net/down-therenews">http://alligatorland.net/down-therenews</a><!-- m --> P.S. the lucky1 video is @ the bottom of the page.
  • After listening to the album in its entirety, I can say that I really enjoy it. It definitely sounds best in a pair of nice headphones, and at night. Also, I read somewhere that the album plays out like a film, and I totally agree with that statement. It really does feel like a film when listening to it, and I really love that about it.
  • Just watched the interview. I will pray for Avey I know he is going through a tough time, but I know he will get through it.
  • I fell asleep listening to Down There on random the other day and I had a strange dream. I was in a shopping mall of some sort and there were giant mosquito-like creatures on the floor. They were about the size of a cat or small dog but had no wings and they were trying to attack people. I jumped up inside a shopping cart. As soon as the next track began it was like a flood washing out the whole store. Idk it was kinda creepy but I thought it was kinda cool because of the whole swampy feel to the album and mosquitoes associated with swamps. I don't really remember what song it was though. I wanna say it was somewhere between Glass Bottom Boat, Ghost of Books or Cemetaries. But it was on random and I was asleep so idk for sure... <!-- s:? --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/confused.gif" alt=":?" title="confused" /><!-- s:? -->
