Whose lyrics are you usually drawn to?

Nick Torres is probably my favorite lyricist. I also really like the lyrics that Kenny Vasoli has been writing with Person L. Also Dustin Kensrue's stuff, but I'm just a thrice fanboy.

Then I have no idea why you wouldn't like MtB's lyrics.

Have you ever listened to Menos El Oso front to back?

What? How can you even compare them?

Yeah, many times, I love Minus the Bear, but don't care much for their lyrics.

Nick and Kenny write very "straight forward" lyrics.

I am a huge, huge Minus The Bear fan but this song isn't doing anything special for me. I like both "Into The Mirror" and "Broken China" a lot more. It's not a bad song, but it just doesn't seem special. Maybe it'll grow on me.

I agree. I'm always excited to here their new material, but this sounds even more bland than Planet of Ice was. They've definitely lost a lot of what it was that made them a pretty special and unique band around HRP and MEO.

Well I have to disagree with you there, Planet of Ice is my favorite Minus The Bear album.

It's definitely not the MtB I love—the poppy prog filtered through a post-hardcore upbringing—but I think it has potential. It's grown on me in just a few listens.

Currently playing a nice Minus to Bear shuffle in my iTunes. And it's probably posted somewhere, but is there a nice pre-order bundle for this available yet?
