One of your finest reviews to date, if not, the finest. This makes me want to try harder. The band should take the time and write you a thank-you note. Nice work.

I Believe this is their best album, and I don't believe that they've made a bad record.

"Fake Empire" & "All The Wine" are amazing songs.

Such a great album...don't know if I like it as much as Boxer yet though...
And excellent review, Jeremy. This is the best review I've read on this site in a very, very long time.

Great review!

Really love this album. This has over 400 hits on my last.fm, second only to Circa Survive.

Yeah, this was as good an editorial piece as I've seen on this site in a long time.

Probably the best written review I've seen on this site ever, simply because it transcends the general restrictions review-writing usually forces onto the writer. Great job, Jeremy. The review suits the album very well, in my opinion; does it justice, so to speak.

I agree, this was almost exactly what I was going to say. I've read all the reviews on this site in the last who knows how many years and this is by far the best work, and so fitting for such an album, thanks!

This band is just to good in that non-obvious way, people either get them or they don't. I think it's certainly an older person's band, and by older I mean 25 and on. It just speaks to you. Ah I love it. Everyone needs to really give them a chance, listen to it at least 5 times through before you dismiss it.
