did they change vocalists? for some reason the vocals sound nothing like the vocals on the EP. regardless, great album. great band. can't wait to see them this summer.

why isnt it on spotify? RFC is dropping the ball on this and putting all their eggs into bandcamp. This, Koji, and CWS arent on there.
idk, but it's incredibly frustrating to me. i like bandcamp fine for buying, but i hate it for streaming. you can't adjust volume on the site, which i hate.

like these dudes were super fatigued when they tracked it or something. Still, definitely good stuff all around.
Agree with this. They sound burnt out but I think that's part of the reason why this album is so good. The lazy, sort of apathetic way the lyrics are sung sounds like someone who's broken and done with everything, which is where the album connects, to me at least, on an emotional level. It's kind of funny because the complete opposite approach was done on the EP, where he belts out equally devastating lyrics but in an emotionally charged and energetic way, and they still connect to the listener. So yeah, these guys are good at what they do.

Also I love that moment in Hollow where he sings the line "I swear that you can never tell that I'm hollow," and that slight pause in instrumentation is so simple but it's such a nice touch.

Anyway, RFC is probably going to take all of my money this year.

i like this album a lot. this review was entertaining and reading it didn't make me hate myself it actually made me feel okay. i feel like this is a good way to describe blake's reviews and it's not something that i can say about reviews in general. again this album rules.

massive improvement over their old material. I wish they would cut out double-time parts completely, and some of the lyrics aren't the greatest, but I like this album. "Hollow" and "Most of the Time" are so good
