Then there are tracks like Ghost Ship that take off. I'll see how I feel about the album in a few more listens.
Interesting. Pyongyang stood out for me as being much better on the record than live tbh. Also just had one listen a few hours ago.

jb hi fi (aus shop) is listing cd as $19 and vinyl as $69?
are these kind of prices normal every where or is it something to do with importing?
prices seem a bit ludicrous given most 2xLP fall around the $30 price. pretty sure the additional poster and packaging isn't what's knocking the price up but more the idea that the band is popular and they can charge whatever they want knowing people will pay for it?? am i being scammed here paying $70 because i feel like i am being scammed? that's concert ticket prices..

I did! And yeah, it does remind you of Northern Lites a bit. :P
