Violent Waves is really good but painfully top-heavy. That is all.

I think they mean that the first half is better than the second half. And I'd probably agree. Great album though.

That's what I was suspecting, but I wasn't sure if it was a reference to actual sound of the record or something else haha. Still gotta listen to it, but it sucks that it leaked.

Completely disagree that its top heavy. I feel the album is at its strongest when 'My Only Friend' starts and 'Blood From A Stone' finishes. Disappointed that the final track is rather weak imo, but it is a fantastic album. The new tracks are only going to give me more wonderful live Circa moments I can tell.

Blue Sky Noise was by far my least favorite record of their discography. Hope that Violent Waves is good.

A lot of people are saying it's much more like Juturna than BSN.

It still mostly reminds me of Blue Sky Noise. Not as many stand out tracks, but consistent good all the way through. Very solid record.

I haven't listened to Violent Waves yet. I'm just saying that based off of the general consensus. I'm too busy listening to Southern Air right now.

I hate that Violent Waves and Minus The Bear's new album come out on the same day. One of them is gonna get totally shafted.

While this didn't quite live up to my expectations, it is still an awesome album. Love the first four tracks. Bird songs is a jam as well.
