full playthru... man that felt short. i know that wont matter in a few days of listening as it will end mushed into all their other tracks. Could be because I'm not all that fond of I Exhale and see myself skipping the longest track on the album.

The remix is so much better, than the original... they should just play that out

Santiago is sadly just a boring filler. 7 tracks are too less to have fillers.

Re: New Album: Barbara Barbara, we face a shining future (March 18, 2016)
Sadly i'm not really feeling the album as a whole, there are a few decent tracks but come on, 7 songs is too little and the quality just isn't what i'd hoped for. Where is the energy from the same group that brought us tracks like cowgirl, rez, king of snake etc? I know they didn't want to just churn out the same formula that people expect, but then i don't think any of these new tracks are particularly new or groundbreaking to be honest. It sounds like a tired Underworld to me and they haven't even released anything in 7 years Barking was considerably better and got a lot of play from me which i don't think this album will be getting.

"Pleasant" is about the best i can give this album. I'm not trying to be too harsh, very few groups can sustain classic albums again and again, it can;t be easy.

I Exhale and If Rah feel to me like they want to be Juanita/Kiteless style; one song that transforms. Exhale can be 3-4min, and then transition into If Rah.

Low Burn is quite pretty. Santiago is ok, but its not something I'll want to listen to after once or twice. Motorhome is gorgeous, fully fleshed-out, and chill. I love it. Ova Nova is pretty and has a nice thump to it. Nylon Strung is good.

So overall its a nice, super-short, album. I don't see myself playing this one cover-to-cover like STiTI, BF or Dubno. I'll prob. end up grabbing my 3 faves from BB and going with that.

Lastly, I don't think Exhale works at all live. After the initial drop, there's not much live going for it. Its not showcasing Karl or RIck, and its not evolving. Comparing Rick's "1 2 3 4!" of Downpipe from the Ibiza show to Rick's "1 2 3 4!" of I Exhale - its not even close. Downpipe crushes it.

Actually, they've been rather fortunate that way. Neither OwB nor Barking leaked before the Japanese release date.

Unfortunately, no. I have heard that of those who have heard it they think it might be the best track on the album.

Yeah, it is rather short. Certain tracks will be on repeat a lot for me, but there's not many to choose from.

Did Rick seriously give us a techno Bo Diddley Beat in If Rah?

They've both expressed their admiration for Bo Diddley before. I'd be surprised if this is a complete coincidence.

How ridiculous would this be?

Are you sure about OwB? Pretty sure I had that prior to release but I could be mistaken. AHDO I remember was leaked eons before the official date.
