Great insight on the connection between "Beggars" and "Disarmed". Both are fantastic songs, but I had never recognized the narrative link.

As an album, I do prefer Beggars, but its connection to...

I have always wished this album would have been recorded after the production style change from Alchemy. While a fantastic record conceptually, the raw sound they adopted thereafter would have suited...

That transition into Dorothy was fantastic. Credit to Daniel Davison for his skill in directing this!

I'm in the midst of giving a new viewing order a shot (IV, V, I, II, III, VI). It's been fantastic to anticipate a Star Wars movie again.

There is some talk around the internet about Disney giving...

Source on that Mark Lee quote? Would love to read anything more information from him.

Elated at the possibility of RK jams on the level of F&NSD again.

I would argue that the interludes are the strength of the album. Every song feels fully-realized, like it has room to breathe. That aspect of F&NSD links it to MMHMM as well, particularly through the...

Hard to put a finger on what changed - perhaps production - but Mike's vocals sound markedly improved over Dead Throne and 8:18.

Unfortunately, this isn't the most musically interesting track, as...

I appreciate the overall theme, but the lyrical analogy of this song is a little drawn-out. Some degree of eloquence seems to be sacrificed for the sake of incorporating the idea - social media...

Their live show is still pretty compelling, but my interest in the band has started to wane. They've yet to recapture that perfect balance of polish and grit from the Zombie EP.

Would love to see a covers EP at some point, preferably after new Thrice. Absolutely love how he interprets these songs.

Agreed. Wish that more bands would do this. Insight into the songwriting process is fascinating to me.

Their last two albums have been almost oppressively dark. Strangely, 8:18 felt darker than...

Please let this happen. I've kicked myself so many times for not listening to those bands when that tour first made its rounds.

Looking for Relient K's "Fallen Man" from the Five Score pre-order back in 2007; pretty sure it was a Best Buy exclusive. Thanks.

And yet, not that long. Even though it didn't feature original material, I thought K is for Karaoke was well-executed for what it was. Collapsible Lung, being the first true Relient K album since...

I believe it was said they would double-check shipping addresses due to the delay, so you should be able to change that if necessary.

Saw something on Twitter where Dustin confirmed that TW&TB could be retroactively labeled as The Modern Post, for anyone who's concerned with that sort of thing.

If you have the DITW bonus tracks, I'd appreciate it ("All We Have," "I'd Like to Die," and "Hell or High Water").

Also, looking for "Day One Dark" from Hans Zimmer's Interstellar score. I believe...

If anyone has Anberlin's DITW or New Surrender b-sides, I would love to pick those up before catching their final tour next month.

Looking for Anberlin's DITW/New Surrender b-sides when convenient, if you have them. Hoping to stock up before catching one last farewell date later this fall. Thanks.
