Yeah this song is great. It's strange to me that there are still people who just talk about how this band hasn't been the same since their debut. That was 10 years ago and they've had three...

Not sure how many times I've listened to this today but it's been basically on repeat since 8:00 this morning. I don't think it's the greatest song they've ever recorded, but I like it a lot and it...

I'm really digging this so far. Spun it two times last night and probably another 5 or 6 this morning and it's really starting to sink in. The biggest fault right now to me is the sequencing of...

So I have a question for you (and anyone who actually worked backwards)... how do you feel about Long Drive and LCW? And more specifically those two albums compared to their other pieces of work?

Are you working on a review for this? I've enjoyed reading your past reviews quite a bit so I'm looking forward to this one.

Also, I know that Coyotes was released a while ago and I liked it...

Great review, and echoes a lot of my sentiments after six listens or so. The production reminds me a lot of "We Were Dead" and even a few songs ("The Best Room" is similar to "Steam Engenius" to me)...

Pumped for a new album already especially after Aaron West. Not that I want TWY to sound like it but I just love how much Dan improves his writing with each album.

As far as skippable tracks I'd...

Thanks for the info! After making my post, I started looking over at Vinyl Collective forum and saw the information about the haze pressing. I cleaned it when I got home and it seemed to play fine...

Been listening to this all day at work and even though it's kind of in the background, I can already tell I'll enjoy this release. Not sure how it'll stack up to TWY releases though.

Also, did...

Had no clue who these guys were and finally listened to this last week. It's amazing. Found one copy of it on vinyl yesterday and picked it up immediately. I'm probably going to spin this daily...

Pretty cool idea. Realized I haven't heard near as much stuff this year as some of you. I'm only doing 2014 releases though.

Agree with all these comments, this album slays. Early faves are "Tread Lightly", "The Motherload", "Chimes At Midnight", "Ember City", and "Diamond In the Witch House."

I'm not sure how people can...

Yeah that makes sense. That songwriting approach might lend itself to letting the songs breathe and go where they should right? Not saying that articulating and thinking out every note and melody...

Yeah this album is pretty awesome. I love Leviathan and Blood Mountain and like all the rest, including The Hunter. But my problem with The Hunter was it just seemed disjointed. It was like they...

Judas was one of the songs that clicked the quickest with me once I heard the whole album but I'm a Los Campesinos! fanboy so anything Garreth touches, I'm a fan of. I do like how the organic stuff...

Killer review. I agree with just about everything except the fact that I really like "My Greatest Fear."

When first hearing the singles, I was pretty unhappy. But after putting them on my phone,...

Yeah, you nailed it. All of LC!'s gang vocals are awesome though. I love the beginning of "This Is a Flag. There Is No Wind" on Romance is Boring... "CAN WE ALL PLEASE JUST CALM THE FUCK DOWN?!"

This is great news. As much as I liked R&R when it came out, I almost never re-visit it anymore. Going to have to change that today. Messengers and Constellations are probably my favorites though....

Will always be excited for what they put out even if most of the time, it doesn't live up to my expectations. I'm in the minority because I enjoy a lot of post-Green. I'm definitely a fan of almost...

I've only listened to this one twice and it didn't blow me away but I didn't mind it. I liked Jeremy and Christie's vocals more than Max's I think. The first three and a half minutes just seemed to...

I must be in the minority because I don't think WWDBTSES is near as low as people are making it out to be. Went ahead and ranked all the releases I own.

2. The Moon &...
