Really just not interested. Nothing like About Face if you ask me and that's a bad thing. Sure if this dark, psuedo weird indie folk is your deal you'll sop this fucker up, but for me its taking the band backwards. If you truly feel the way you do about Followed than I know I won't enjoy this album at all and truth be told I'm heartbroken over it. I don't know what caused the band to collapse and what led to this change in sound but I'm super sad over it.

Great write up - a little long winded but I've never really been well suited for brevity myself. I do find myself slightly at odds with your contention that this "vaults" the band to new heights cause I don't find anything very redeeming in the new sound, but hey different strokes.
You know you won't enjoy it but you're making your decisions off of what? One song?

I just don't kind of get this whole like folk movement thing. Seems like a lot of bands that mature all of a sudden get more folk-like. I would've liked another similar to about-face but I guess not. Don't get me wrong though I do like some bands that are considered rock/folk.
It's not a folk album by any means, hahaha. In fact, Greg used the word folk about one song in the entire review.

Based on THREE songs, and the fact that he feels that one of those three songs, one that does absolutely nothing for me, is the albums crowning achievement.
It's a 13 song album, and personally, I'm not that into Followed but a friend of mine is. It's an album that will offer a lot for a lot of different people.

So jussrelax and give it a chance. I could pick three songs on the album that are a little "stranger" and give you one impression of it, and then pick 3 others and give you a totally different one. There's a really interesting variety of music.
