    know what you mean...the album also found it┤s way to me in the last month ....eheheh

    but it┤s still worth buying if you find the deluxe edition....the making off dvd on itself is well worth the price.....it has a making off video for each song, a videoclip for "someone┤s in the wolf" that is as weird as the song itself :P and a faux interview were josh explains part of the creative process..

    as for the album itself....a great album no doubt...what i love about this band is that no 2 albums are alike...they all rock in diferent ways....and at least i can┤t pick a favourite...it varies from mood to mood...

    the lack of oliveri means the album doesn┤t have the scream fests like 6 shooter but it makes up for it with songs like "i never came" and "you┤ve got a killer scene"...not to mention "someone┤s in the wolf"....a song that i┤ve best seen described as "a fairy tale gone wrong! "

    can┤t wait to see these guys live.

    Hahah, and i thought i was the only one who loved the scream fests

    But yeah, i agree with the 'no two albums are alike' statement. But i did kind of miss the grandness of songs for the deaf. I was probably hoping for a song on this album to surpass my two favourite qotsa songs (song for the deaf and mosquito song). Lullaby had a kind of haunting quality which i liked, but i didn't find one to surpass the other two.

    Then again, those are two hard tracks to better...

    Book:
    Jarlens Sekel (translation: The century of the jarl )

    Havn't bought a CD for ages and never bought a DVD.
    We are all aware that the senses can be deceived, the eyes fooled. But how can we be sure our senses are not being deceived at any particular time, or even all the time? Might I just be a brain in a tank somewhere, tricked all my life into believing in the events of this world by some insane computer? And does my life gain or lose meaning based on my reaction to such solipsism?

    Well today I just got Bob Dylan Live 1966, The Bootleg Series vol 4.
    It was called The Royal Albery Hall Concert, though it was recorded in Manchest England.
    It's awesome. First CD is his acoustic set, then goes electric.
    I love some guy yelling "Judas!", then Bob argues with him for a bit.

    As for book and DVD, not sure.
