anyone obtained this prematurely yet?

i'm listening to it just now, seems okay so far. though the drums sound a bit crap, particularly in the first song.

Okay? OKAY? Jesus, what a disappointment it's going to be if I find it to be merely okay... did you download MP3s, or is it the actual CD you have?

I'm with Dave Officer on this one.

Panopticon is one of my all time fave albums but got a kinda tool-10,000days-esque wave of disappointment when i heard this. Too much bass effects? Prefer it when they are beefier and slightly more raw.

Need to give it loads of listens tho. On another note, the 1st song on the fishtank ep with aereogramme is absolutely immense.

i listened to it a bit more today, the drums are still a bit weak sounding for me and the albums seems to just meander along never really picking up steam. it's not shit though, there are some fine tracks and some good moments but sometimes i just wanted someone to kick them up the arse and tell them to get on with it.

panopticon was a brilliant album which managed to capture their more expansive sound while still having some fine chops which felt right and not just heavy for heavy's sake. this one seems a bit aimless. maybe it's a 'grower' but it's still worth listening to.
