I don't understand why people are hating this record? It's brilliant!
They've decided to go with a different sound and I love them even more because of it.
It's such a polished album and you can tell they've spent a lot of time on it.
POI was a great album though. I totally disagree that it's one of the worst albums
It's taken me a few listens, but I'm really into this album. There's really no skippers, I listen to this album all the way through pretty much every time. If I had to pick favorites I'd say Excuses and Into The Mirror/Animal Backwards.
This is my first Minus the Bear experience and I loved it. They are truly outstanding. I like your review, too, just wish you could have talked about their song "Hold Me Down". It's one of the best on the album, in my opinion.
