  1. this is me...i haven't posted any pics in ages!:)
  2. Can't resist downloading the leak because Beirut is my all-time favorite band. I thought just because The Rip Tide is their 3rd LP, I might be disappointed if it is not up to par with the earlier albums. Well I wasn't disappointed at all! The album contains only 9 songs, but those are quality songs. There isn't any weak song on the album! I guess it is because Beirut's music keeps on evolving, its themes and influences are always changing. I think in Gulag Orkestar was inspired by gypsy and Balkan music. The Flying Club Cup was reminiscent of French chansons. The EP March of the Zapotec was inspired by mariachi music. The new album on the other hand is the most organic music Beirut has ever made. I think it was inspired by Zach's earlier recordings as Realpeople in Joys of Losing Weight. The band keeps the music fresh everytime. That's why i'm always excited to hear new stuff from Beirut. My favorite song from the album is Payne's Bay. Very sublime song.
  3. Hello! I'm sorry for the very late reply! I have read your wall post just now. How was the National's show in Vancouver? I haven't been listening to the band like I used to but its music really make me relax whenever I listen to it. Wow I guess you have been into many awesome concerts...i mean, canada is where great indie bands of late comes from! Thanks for your concern. I'm not depressed all the time. I'm happy right now lol. Thanks.

  7. Hello :) I am a lover of The National and so, surfing through this forum, I found your review of Boxer, etc. Aren't they incredible??! I'm going to see them in 3 weeks in Vancouver :D :D So... getting to the point, I noticed that your mood was set as "Depressed" and I just wanted to say that (I cannot guarantee this but) everything will be alright :) and there must be lows in order to have highs :nice:
