    Kanye already perfected music with his latest release, there is no reason to anticipate anything further, it will always be a disappointment.

    I've had The Streets - Computers and Blues for months, can't believe it hasn't come out yet. It's a much better album than the last two imo.

    Holy shit, I didn't know The Go! Team were making another album... Consider my anticipation peaked. I was already excited about the new Cut Copy.

    Interested to hear what a James Blake LP is going to sound like...
