Just saw the video for Humility. It's on Venice Beach! I used to live blocks from there. And yes those people are real. A bunch of freaks down there. haha

I don’t want to listen to any of the live version before I hear the studio versions.

I wish I could say the same. The way I look at it is, I could die tomorrow and I would of missed out on hearing these fantastic songs

I only listened to Tranz and I really liked it, but I'm saving the rest for when the album comes out. I like the element of surprise when you first get the album.

I'm loving all of them so far. Hollywood is my least favorite, and perhaps that's because I'm not much on Jamie Principles. Tranz is incredible, along with Magic City, Souk Eye, Socererz... wow! Shaping up to be similar to how I had hoped Humanz would be. So pleased by this.

Damon's singing strikes me as particularly good on these tracks, especially Tranz and Magic City. If this makes sense, his voice sounds more powerful on those songs (at least live.) Can't wait to hear the studio versions! Sorcererz' track length of 3:00 minutes has appeared on iTunes, wonder if that means it'll have a release this Thursday or Friday?

I'm most excited about Idaho - the loveliest sounding thing i've heard in ages.

That was another reason I hated Humanz as it was totally missing any of the moving, more emotional songs. Like To Binge and Cloud of Unknowing etc.

Once again I haven't been able to hold off listening to the live versions and can't wait for the album. Loving all what I have heard up to now, but Magic City is the standout track, so emotional, and Damon's vocals are fantastic, great song writing, something that was missing on Humanz. Tranz is also sounding very promising and hoping we are all not dissapointed when hearing the studio versions, although Humility stands up well as a studio track as does Lake Zurick.

But yeah, I have to agree about the emotion on these songs.

The new tracks are good

But if I have a reservation I kinda wish Damon would knock off the telephone voice thing.

As for now Souk Eye is also my favourite, but I really love all the new tracks.

The debut album also felt like very much like a solo album and that was awesome.
