    I love it. Very lovely music that I'm sure I'll still be listening to years from now. I'd say 23 is their most consistent album to date, but Misery has the best stand-out tracks.

    I don't think it's better than anything they've ever done, but it's a pretty good album.

    I'm still waiting for it to grow on me. I thought Misery had way more melodic tracks, but some of 23's tracks are beautiful in their own way. But my first thought was disappointment...

    You can kind of work that out from your poll options - there really needs to be something between best ever and mediocre.

    I definitely like it more than anything they've ever done. Much more expansive sound. And I don't find it less melodic than Misery...not that this is a terribly melodic band to begin with.

    Very good, hooked from the first track on.

    I still havent heard all of Misery..., but I love Melody of Certain Damaged Lemons and still think its slightly better than 23.

    I thought this new one was really really good . I just saw them play some songs off the new album live at ameoba here in sf and it gave me the chills . I never used to really listen to them much , but now i'm very interested to see them live at coachella with a full sell.

    Nice! I wish they had played the amoeba in LA instead :P

    Did you meet them? Ask where and when they will play at Coachella?

    Some guy in Spin magazine said after hearing the guy's voice on this album, there would be a lot of Blonde Radiohead jokes. I don't get it. His voice sounds nothing like Thom Yorke's...Muse takes the award for that one.

    The only similarity I can find between BR and Radiohead is that they both have sometimes depressing songs. When I feel like chilling, I often listen to them together in a playlist; they work well together for me. But I don't know who really compares them to Radiohead that isn't a snobby Pitchfork writer or something.
