Love the drums, and can appreciate that these chaps are very good, technically minded musicians, but the song lengths and tuneless vocals make this album a bit of a struggle for me.

It's the same...

I've been a huge Jimmy fan for a long time now, and it hurts me to say that this album is the very definition of average. There are a handful of good tracks (Title track, 'I Will Steal You Back')...

It's a strange album this

I don't think a single song on it has the 'kick' of some of their earlier stuff (Careful, Born For This, Misery Business) but it certainly has some of their catchiest...

Thanks for the suggestion - I'm still pretty sure it was Tickle Me Emo though - It had a blue background skin, wasnt particularly pretty to look at but had a definitive list of very cool bands - I...

I don't hate 'Mama' by any means - Just feels a little one paced to me - Some great stuff on there though, Caveman and What Have I Done are 2 of my favourite Cursive songs

Then again, I'm one of the...

I like it - But I think it loses an awful lot unless you're sat down, listening to the album from start to finish with the lyric book/stage directions in hand.

Not a bad album - Not a patch on Aim and Ignite though IMO. There doesnt really seem to be any light and shade within it, just constant fluorescent yellow. Considering they seem to have gone out of...

Used to adore this album when it was first released, but can't help but feel that time hasn't been particularly kind to it - Sure, the four singles all sound great, but there seems to be an awful lot...

Its a really good album - Id give it around an 80 - but some of the choruses sound a bit forced (Walking in my Sleep, The Worst of Your Wear) and dont have the magic of songs such as 'Carelessness',...

Agree with almost everything you say - For every good lyric on this theres a bad one - 'Like a Wal-Mart version of you'? Desperately trying to be smart but just comes across as clunky.

I have never, and will never understand the hate for this song.

To me, its probably the best thing on Narrow Stairs, and one of the saddest songs they've ever wrote

Never been a huge fan of Converge - Although 'Jane Doe' has a couple of decent tracks.

I can see why they would polarise opinions so much - They do border on unlistenable noise several times over...

It's a good album - but its not a patch on 'Glass Handed Kites' and doesnt even come close to 'Frengers'

IMO it could do with a couple more urgent sounding, surging songs like 'Repeaterbeater'...
