This is definitely better than Strength of the Mind, but only slightly. Honestly I'm not super excited for this new record if it's gonna sound like a duller version of everything they've already done.

This goes perfectly with the weather right now, and consequently my mood.

I actually got into this record almost right away. I was 8 when OA came out, and 10 when this did, so I was just young and open minded enough to appreciate it for what it was without comparing it to...

The only album of theirs I find myself returning to is Meteora, and that's mostly the nostalgia factor. I'll definitely check this out when it drops though.

This is very high on my most anticipated list for 2016. Hoping for a single soon!

*cough cough With Teeth cough cough*

I am absurdly excited for this though. NIN is my (second) favorite band, and everything since Year Zero has been top notch in my opinion.

It reminds me a lot of Let Yourself Be Huge, which is always a good thing.

That track list is pretty incredible, but I'm disappointed in the lack of tracks from Sung Tongs. 'What Would I Want? Sky' is a pleasant surprise though, one of my favorites by them.

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...

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.
