The most excited I have been about an album release in years

I think the last time I was this excited was when OLP released “Spiritual Machines”. I imported my copy directly from Canada. It came out in NZ 6 months later. I wish I had been on to it sooner, though, because they released a very limited edition of the album, which I missed. Doh!

Since “Spiritual Machines”, I admit, I have been one of those fans saddened by the, in my opinion, blandness that the OLP sound took on (with the exception of “Angels/Losing/Sleep” … if it wasn’t such a depressing song lyrically, I so would have walked down the isle to that song … Or, if I could have got an instrumental version … LOVE!)

Anyway, now you know where my heart lies, musically. I have been waiting for these guys to get all experimental again. Now, I just have to find out how to buy it without going through iTunes (yes, yes, I am a hater).

So much for the “Press this” button in Chrome … it works, but I don’t know how to successfully link videos …




Deb E was born in New Zealand’s North Island, but her parents corrected that within months, moving south to Dunedin and staying there. Childhood nights were spent falling asleep to cover versions of Cliff Richard and the Shadows and other Rock ’n Roll classics played by her father’s band, and days were spent dancing to 45 LPs. Many of her first writing experiences were copying down song lyrics. She graduated to scientific reports when she studied a nematophagus fungus in the Zoology department of the University of Otago, trading all traces of popularity for usefulness… then traded both for fiction. Mum of one human & four fur-babies.

  1. has it listed for $9.99. Can you order there and have it shipped to you? I don’t know how international shipping works for new albums. I buy used CDs all the time, most of the time from England or Germany. But never new.

    I haven’t heard of these guys in a long time. Our Lady Peace sounds vaguely like Thom Yorke/Radiohead.


      I know postage is quite expensive, so I was dragging my feet a bit, and considering just buying the digital version. But … they put up an autographed copy today, so I went for that. Possibly more expensive than it needs to be. But, I’ve loved these guys since I “discovered” them in 1997, so I figure I can indulge in a little fandom by now.
