My first impression is it sounds a little tame.
The first two thirds, maybe. I mean, it's still good, but yeah, it isn't quite as mindblowing as their classics. Those last three songs, though? Oh lawd... I can only dream of the day when ANOTHER mbv album comes out, exploring that direction even further.


In Another Way is fantastic, and so is New You. It's true, the second half is anything but tame. I'm a little afraid to put on headphones and listen to Wonder 2 at a really high volume.

Yeah, I've always liked this version -- dig the different intro.

That's a good acoustic cover, but his guitar sounds really out of tune, and it's bothering the hell out of me.

I really think that's a big part of what I like about it. No polish, just real and raw.

Speaking of great acoustic songs, deftones with incubus and Adam Sandler playing Be Quiet and Drive. Very very good....

No surprise that Aaron Dessner from The National produced it. While I'm glad they toned down the Animal Collective tribal BS, it's definitely a bit boring at times. I'm sure it'll grow on me.

Any guitarists here able to recommend strings for an electric guitar? Probably going out today because mine go out of tune if you bend them ever so slightly.

I'm looking at stainless steel, because I heard those stay in tune better and, from what I've seen, fit my playing style better.

Any of the Slinky series made by Ernie Ball.
Probably the Regular Slinky, if you are switching from accoustic to electric.

No, I've had only electrics. I heard the stainless stayed in tune the best, but no one has them

Depends on what kind of guitar it is, what style of music you play, and what gauge you're looking for.

i really just want to be able to bend my strings without having to re-tune every time. Not sure if that's a guitar or string problem.

It's an Ibanez RG: http://i.imgur.com/tMbu8jf.jpg
