Didn't like it much at all.

Wasn't really feeling this. Will give it another go later.

Loved it. Easily on par with Move Along. Very unique and different stuff from AAR but also some of their best work by far.

Jason Tate 03/26/12 09:34 AM

Their best album.

Agreed.

Bleed Into My Mind is so different from them but I can't get it out of my head for even a second.

You could say it's bled into your mind.

The songs are so diverse, but they all have that AAR feel to it. In love with this album.

I'm finding this one to be a grower album. It's definitely miles better than the last album.

I could say that. I did not but it is a true statement. That synth line is weird to hear from AAR and I don't normally like more synth in a rock band's music but this is layered just perfectly. It creates moods so well and still showcases the best traits that AAR has. It reminds me of how synth was layered into the new Coldplay album. I just love the diversity and production of this album. I say its on par with Move Along as that was my favorite but it might even beat that out with time to come. Either way I am so glad AAR are back and this album is fantastic. Expectations exceeded.

Also demos are interesting because some songs are more rock and some are more synth or pop.

To me this album is the perfect example of a band trying to go a slightly different route, wanting to have a big sound but not lose themselves. AAR did this perfectly. Honestly I was blown away listening to it the first time. Congrats guys you did what so many bands try to do but yet they fail miserably.

Jury is still out for me but, one thing that I initially thought while listening, there doesn't seem to be a surefire hit single on here. Or maybe that's just me?
