Ronson took away most of the energy from the drums, that's just his style.

The album's still pretty good of course. But you're definitely the first I've seen to ever describe it "absolute masterpiece"

Actually that is a fair point! He did kind of butcher the drums a bit. Whereas Like Clockwork has some amazing drum work.

Have you heard Villains live though? It sounds great! I guess Iím pretty bias as I absolutely loved Like Clockwork and I love the dark electronic rock sound they have on Villains. Plus lyrically I adore it.

Each to their own but to me I think itís amazing

Well, when I first heard the studio version of The Way You Used To, I thought the production was "strange", too. To me, it sounded too quiet, "squashed", and not properly beefy, in comparison to ...Like Clockwork or other past albums like SFTD or Rated R.

You told it: only a quarter of their carrier. Which seems so much because we have to wait a remarkable amount of time between albums now.

Villains was a massive disappointment and Kendrick is king.

If you type Kendrick Lamar generic into google, the autocorrect changes it to Kendrick Lamar genius - that should tell you enough!

I kinda live in my own musical bubble so I've not really heard much Kendrick Lamar, or at least without turning on something the songs are soundtracking. Kind of a bad habit to disappear to some degree tbf. What I heard on Black Panther was decent, mind, although I preferred the African percussion score to the more rap-oriented tracks in that film. But hey. All opinions.

What I've heard of Villains is decent, but I do agree its over-produced.

Greg James on Radio1 today was reading the promo brief before he played Thought Contagion and said the album is out in November.

Seems a bit early to set a release date if the album's not even half done, surely? Are we sure that's not just speculative?

Last 3 albums' dates were all announced 3 months before release.

Edit: also, why would you send a promo package out to DJ’s with just ‘yeah, album’s out some time in November’? like, no specific date, no title, no artwork, no single or tour attached to the announcement? just seems weird to me. or did he imply that he had more info but only revealed that it said november?

Yes, better get rock bottom out of the way sooner rather than later.

They wanted to complete it during summer, iirc.

Oh yeah, I’m not saying they can’t have it ready by then. Just that it seems a bit early to actually set a release date, and send out such a loose one for DJ’s to promote.

Though, in that Chris Moyles interview, Matt did seem to imply or say that they only had around half the songs so far iirc. So to write and record another 5/6, finish mixing and mastering, choose artwork, book and organise an apparently huge tour, leave time for promo etc. in 8 months...it’d be a pretty quick turnaround.

Villains was a largely dreadful album.

But tbh, I don't blame Ronson. It's just a collection of very weak songs - even with more 'QOTSA-style' production, I'm not sure it would have been any better.

/late.

I feel they're already planning everything right now, but they're obviously trying not to disclose too much during interviews before the complete album gets released.
They certainly have nearly all the songs ready; ready to be recorded and produced during the last sessions, I mean.
