I feel like you may want to argue with anyone who says Pyramid headliner..?

I feel like you want to argue with anyone who doesn't think they’ve shrunk since 2014.

They’d be a great other headline.

They’ve been doing that for ages. Suburbs, Reflektor, EN all had tracks split into parts 1 and 2.

Yes, but to my mind, not tracks that flow so directly from one to another, the neighbourhood tracks and sprawl I & II feel like distinct tracks in their own right.
 

lighting I & II feels like it should be one song. Kinda like if they’d split Wake Up into two parts.

It’ll sound great on vinyl, but on Apple Music there was a little momentary pause that sounded shit.

Seems like their most pointed stab at 'stadium rock' they've ever done. Sounds quite like it could be a Killers song. But I fuck with that.

Literally said this to my mate, part 1 wouldn't sound out of place on 'Pressure Machine', but as you say - I fuck with that.

Didn't recognise that Will's replacement in the video is Dan Boeckner from Wolf Parade. That's a pretty perfect fit. But I guess they're dabbed down for a couple of years then.

Just get Wolf Parade to tour with them and support every night, problem solved.

Interestingly, I logged in, saw the posts above, went straight Apple Music and listened to the two new songs a few times…for all the talk of Neon Bible, Wolf Parade were exactly what I thought of listening to lightning II. Great addition if he’s staying for this album anyway.

Where would they play if they played Glasto now?

I honestly can’t find a realistic placing for them tbh. Reckon they’ll skip Glastonbury for the foreseeable and just headline slightly smaller festivals instead. I don’t see them dropping down to sub or headline Other at this stage in their career.

Y’know, that new song(s) is hardly anything mind blowing or particularly new for them, but damn does it give me all kinds of nostalgic feels to back when I was first really getting in to them in the lead up to and release of The Suburbs. For all the stick I’ve given them on here over the last couple of years, it sure does feel great to have them back.

Bloody brilliant.

Lightning ii is the kind of uplifting post covid anthem we’ve all been looking forward to. No fucking about just an absolute stone cold belter.

Get em booked Mr Michael 2023 top o’t’ pointy c**t, lets av eeeeeet
