Definitely going to give this a proper listen with my full attention sometime this week when I'm not too busy.

The album is great. I hope everyone who likes it at least considers dropping the cash for it - it's been a long year and a half for this band while they recorded it. They deserve every penny.

Gonna listen to the stream but will buy it if I like. So far I find it very melodic. Part of the vocals reminds me of The Front Bottoms

Went ahead and bought it. I like a few songs on this and repeated listens will probably up my enjoyment. I like a lot of parts and some things I am not 100% keen on but its just a first stream from soundcloud. Ordered the LP as a graduation gift to myself.

I just checked their tour schedule... And now I have a problem.
The World is a Beautiful Place is in town the day after Pianos Become the Teeth. I don't know which to go to...

I will have to give it another listen in the morning. I love the instrumentals, the production, and how layered everything is. Not super into the vocal delivery but I will keep listening and try again. I love supporting small artists and there are things I really like but I am not 100% sure if this is something I would listen to. If I listen to more than 3 times and it still won't click I will buy the digital version to at least give back for letting me give it a shot.

Edit: Really loving Pictures of a Tree That Don't Look Ok
Mirroring my thoughts almost exactly. The vocals are throwing me off.

I went ahead and got it. There are times it bothers me but overall I think its not bad. It was 16 dollars shipped and I can justify it. There are plenty of songs I do like and the instrumentation on the album is very rich.

ordered the clear w/ green smoke LP. The other two versions didn't seem that appealing - and they sold out already! Guess I got lucky.

I listened to 90% of the stream and then decided to wait on the album so as not to spoil myself. Their sound really brings me back to a time. I glanced at the lyrics and they're pretty tight. This might mark the first time I've actually listened to a stream then bought the record immediately. cool deal.

I think the last minute of Fightboat did it for me, I'll be picking this up. I wish they would sing like that always though.

This is my only qualm, I'm a bit hung up on the vocals and wish the end of Fightboat was more indicative of their sound.

True, it sucks this leaked early - but Topshelf, you guys handled it like champs. thanks for putting up the streams tonight.

So then I streamed it on Bandcamp, decided I loved this record, and bought the 12".
