This used to be my second least favorite Blood Bros. album, but I recently listened to it again and found myself enjoying it much more. Crimes, to me, looks very bland and forgettable compared to this album. They really find cool ways to incorporate pop influences in their songs.
I got into them when burn piano island came out I remember how disappointed I was when I got into this album that things were coming to an end for them it really saddened me but I do like jaguar love and past lives is actually opening for murder city devils I believe so that's pretty cool
Not a fan of the review; did not really cover the tracks really but hey, I suck at reviewing so i should not complain ;) All three of their albums are great. I guess I would have to say the 2nd album is my favorite since it is the album that I first heard when I discovered them. But I do believe that Young Matches was a great album and being the last of them it is completely fitting. I still get juiced listening to Set The Fire To The Face On Fire....that track murders!
I like everything the Bloods have put out. What a cool concept: two brutal singers, one with a high end shriek and one with a lower, deeper scream, battling it out throughout their songs. Even cooler: they had the tremendous DIY work ethic and background that it has an extreme amount of artistic integrity and most importantly creativity.
This band was never an easy listen, and that was the point: They wanted to make great, insanely creative music on their own terms.
