    I will adore this band until the day I die. Am I the only one who thinks "Bloodflowers" doesn't get enough love? I think it's easily their best post-80s album.

    I've had a good five years since initially falling in love with this band to mull it all over. Yes, I can now conclusively say that they are the best band of all time.

    If Only Tonight We Could Sleep is perhaps my most treasured song, all throughout the history, future & presence of time. How wonderful... thank you so much, dear poets.

    Ancient bands in the modern times don't know how to use the internet to market their stuff. It's not even a new album per se, just some rerecorded stuff that were left out from 4:13 Dream. There were even a few sites talking about a new Trilogy DVD/Blu Ray being released, but also no word from that. Answering your question: no one has any idea of what's going on

    Does anyone know when the new album is going to be released? In the early spring they said "in the next few months"...
