That Calvin and Hobbes reference tho

I'll have to check out the clip when I get home later. Monsters in the Closet didn't do much for me but I loved ALIR and the S/T.

I gave it a nine, which is slightly higher than I think it actually deserves, but the nostalgia factor bumped it up. I basically grew up with this album. I remember listening to it every day after...

Digging this a lot more than I thought I would. Although, I do wish it had stuck with the bluesy vibe from the intro instead of going all grunge. Nothing wrong with grunge, but I feel like that would...

That's fair, that would definitely make the reprisal section hit a bit harder.

On the other hand, the "Knock once for the father..." section of WCS is a pretty great climax for the record imo

Why do you find West Coast Smoker underwhelming? I think it's a pretty perfect closer.

Also, this song is fantastic, continuing TWY's streak of insanely catchy track twos (seriously, how catchy are...

I think it sounds a LOT like Good to Know That If I Ever Need Attention..., in fact that's the first thing I thought when I first heard it.

I agree with everyone complimenting the drum performance on this record, but can we talk about the drum SOUND for a second? Holy fuck, those drums sound incredible.

Also this album is amazing. If To...

I was thinking the exact same thing, it sounds like the spoken word parts in A Shipwreck in the Sand

To be honest I don't mind the lyrics to this song at all. They're honest, heartfelt and funny. And I relate pretty strongly, being a college student on the verge of finals as well as an aspiring...

Agreed 100% on DCFC and Modest Mouse being disappointing. This is very highly anticipated for me as well (though I am anticipating Silverstein, ABR and TWY more.)

Also, props for correctly using a...

That teaser got me almost as emotional as "Son of a Widow" or "Bear's Vision of St. Agnes" and it's only a minute long. Needless to say I am absurdly excited for this.

A part of my teenage angst just died. Holy shit. I was only 10 when they broke up the first time but this time it hits hard.

I still have some things I need to listen to but here's my current top 20, an honorable mention, and a total dud.

Top 20:
1. The War On Drugs - Lost in the Dream
2. This Will Destroy You - Another...

I've never been a huge fan of Anberlin, but a few years back the girl I was dating burned me a copy of Cities, along with a few other songs including "The Resistance" and "Paperthin Hymn". Listening...

Downloaded it and immediately started listening. The first four tracks are pretty great so far.

Also, I think that this format could work as long as big corporations don't realize it's competition...

This was the first Brand New album that I heard when it first came out. Crazy that it's been five years. To me, it's already a classic.

Favorites are At The Bottom, You Stole and Bought a Bride.

This is definitely a better video than the one for "The Negative One". Still a meh song, though.

I still can't get past the fact that the TITLE OF THE SONG is grammatically incorrect.

I loved The Negative One at first but have grown to dislike it with repeated listens. Hoping the whole album doesn't end up that way too.

Judging by the first few songs (I don't have time to watch the whole thing right now), this sounds like a cross between MBV, Pixies, and the direction MCR was going on Danger Days. AKA, amazing....

Four words to describe this album: Rise Against by numbers. There was nothing about it that differentiated it at all from their past few records. If I want this sound, I'll just listen to Endgame.
