It's pretty much only my URL friends (I'm going to start using that) that agree with me.

All my IRL friends all think Making Mirrors is better than Like Drawing Blood.

Nah I much prefer Like Drawing Blood. I should probably listen to Making Mirrors more though to give it a fairer chance but at the moment it doesn't quite compare.

Don't you just feel your hipster ego grow when you see all these people posting "Somebody That I Used to Know" all over Facebook and you just think: "Pfft, I listened to him before it was cool"?

Making Mirrors > Vows > Like Drawing Blood
Cole: "Ow I just got hit in the balls"
Me: "How?"
Cole: "Well you know when you try to scratch your balls, and you scratch too hard?
I'll admit sometimes I want to listen to Dragonforce.

I haven't heard Like Drawing Blood yet, but Making Mirrors is probably tied with Vows for me. (can't really pick a favorite) They are both awesome in their own rights, and I don't really like comparing them.
The only "negative" thing I can say about Making Mirrors is that I tend to loose a bit of focus at the last 2 or 3 tracks. Not saying they are bad, but my favorites on the album would be: "In Your Light", "I Feel Better", "Somebody That I Used to Know", "Smoke and Mirrors", "State of the Art" and "Easy Way Out". These songs are all mindblowing.  :hefdaddy

Just got back from her headlining show at the Mercury Lounge.  It was unreal.  Easily one of the best shows I've ever been to.  And all the new songs are fantastic.  I think she could be on the verge of superstardom when the album drops in the US.





Set list:

Cameo Lover
Good Intent
Limbo
Two Way Street
Street Marigold (new song)
Plain Gold Ring
Call Me
Old Flame
Samaritan (new song)
Settle Down

----Kimbra points out that the stage setup would make it really awkward to do an encore because she has to walk through the crowd to get off the stage, so she just tells us its time for the encore---

Withdraw
(crowd sings Happy Birthday to Kimbra because its her 22nd birthday)
Come Inte My Head (new song)

weird that she's only a year older than me, she seems older



anyway, the worst part of being a kimbra fan is sifting through hundreds of terrible 'somebody that i used to know' covers and bad remixes just to watch new live videos

Maybe she's testing them out for inclusion on her next album?  It's been so long since she wrote/recorded Vows that she's gotta have some stuff written for album 2 by now.

I'll probably get the bonus tracks on iTunes or something tonight.

Just out of curiosity, does the U.S. edition include Sing Sing? I haven't seen mention of it.

There's an edition released in Australia that has a a DVD of the whole thing. I managed to find it for just $20, and it was totally worth importing it. Awesome DVD!

Didn't expect to find a kimbra thread on here.  She's great, Vows is fantastic, I've played the shit out of it.  Her live band is out of this world good.  The backing band are made up of members of another relatively well known NZ jazzy prog rock band called The New Caledonia.  I've pimped this album a lot here in the past, but anyone on a DT board talking about Kimbra owes it to themselves to check out New Cal's 'Lotus'. It's amazing.
