Some people asked where the track is available for purchase in lossless formats, it's now available on Juno Download.

Methinks it's gonna tank like Elysium, or the Titanic.

Has anyone noticed the poor mastering for this song, the same as the one for Dreamland ?
What happened with Tim Young ? He's been mastering tracks for the Boys for years now. What is it with this muddy sound where the high frequencies disappear ? Is nowadays music supposed to sound like this ?

After 10-15 times I like this sing more, but Dreamland still sounds strange for PSB.

Dreamland sounds okay to me, but the b sides and Heather sound muffled. The vocals on Heather sound off balance, too.

This track is amazing. Much better than an open mind.

I love the chorus but I'm underwhelmed by the 'happy' ending. It works better as a miserablist anthem.

Really not keen on the last two albums but if Dreamland and this are anything to go by, this will be a "return to form" in my eyes. :up:

It’s my 50th birthday today and the mood of this track matches and probably enhances my feelings about the day. Not sure that’s a good thing!
Happy Birthday! I turned 50 earlier this year. It isn't all bad.

He must have serious hearing problems. All of these new tracks sound awful. Allready anticipating the remastered version of Hotspot.

this song is so rich and dreamy. although I would have preferred it be a bit more uptempo and strumming guitar with steady drums along the lines of the second half of Drunk.

the song titles are a bit weird....if this wasnt official I would call this an obvious fake tracklist. you know how people who do those things usually do it ....they throw in just enough "known" unreleased songs to make it seem legit. I am... dying... to hear willo the wisp because I just for the life of me cant see how that title can be turned into a coherent song. I feel like surely it has to be a enfant terribre or ego music style track. in any case I REALLY wish they would just push it out now. I mean seriously.

The people complaining about the production....well what about the terrible production on SUPER? have you really listened to Sad Robot world....or the dictator decides, or pazzo? all of these tracks have an underlying hiss in the background. how does that happen in the modern day? I suppose you could say that was for effect....but seriously, why would anyone purposely simulate hiss a defect no less?
