AND 3. Mosquito is an amazing album. Check it out now!
seems you're gonna have a great time again ;) Go Rachel!
One of the nice surprises of 2013!
@MyBlueElephant Haha you remember all my older OL jams? I'm flattered, Sylvie! Daughter will be a great performance to see too :)
I love this single, and album opener, and as you're right, the video is brilliant, but I was disappointed by the album and THAT cover art. Eesh. I will keep listening to the album though and hope it grows as I love YYY
@abunchofletters I'm not a fan of the cover art either, Rich. And I wasn't into the album much at first, but it's quickly growing on me. So far this jam, Subway, Mosquito, Under the Earth, Slave, Despair, and Wedding Song are my favorites. The random Dr. Octagon appearance on Buried Alive doesn't work for me, which sucks cause everything else about the song sounds great. I think And Area 52 is really funny and fun, but not as good as the rest.
Lovin' that choir...
@rvleonard I read and try to remember what I've read about my friends' jams (sometimes I'm mistaken on who said it), I listen to all my friends jams... If it wasn't so good, I'll ask for wages cause it 's becoming a full-time job, ah! ah! Anyway, I find interesting what people said about their jam, what did they choose "this" one. A little bit of life most of the time :)
The album is quickly growing on me as well. We have tickets to see them @ First Ave in Minneapolis in June. We saw them live there a few years back as well, such an amazing act to see live!
totally BRILLIANT...thx for this find...
@rvleonard Just heard the whole album in a row after hearing you jam :) Totally agree with you. Sacrilege is clearly the highlight and Area 52 is not as good as the rest of the album, which is globally brilliant nonetheless. Also like a lot Despair (accoustic), Always and These Paths.
Love YYY'S <3
@KHL_webcontent The choir is perfect for the religious content of the song
@MyBlueElephant What dedication! I usually let jams play while studying, but I do my best to keep up with everyone's jams cause this website is my absolute favorite for music&video sharing
@sweeter Oh my goodness I'm so jealous you've seen them before! I'm glad they're so good live. It'll be great to see them sing their new material!
@lynn200 My pleasure
@Nuno Always & These Paths- I knew I'd forgotten to mention some
Still my favourite song of the year and it's going to take something mighty special to beat it.
As for the album... I'm up to listen number 4 and I'm still not a fan. It's not bad, it's just mostly half-baked; lots of ideas and not many songs. Subway is fantastic, though, I really like Buried Alive, random rap section and all, and Wedding Song is a great closer. The rest... meh. Two more listens. If it's still not grown on me, than I'll just have to accept that Mosquito is a disappointment.
Thank you @rvleonard.
You're very welcome, @giorni!
Excellent find @rvleonard ...This would make a great movie.
Thank you, @srj1957! Oh, so true.
