First listen- Disappointed. Nearly half of the songs sounded like poorly written b-sides.. I Understand they were on a tight budget, but I expected the album to be 7 AMAZING songs. It had 2 AMAZING songs, 1 or 2 'eh' songs, and a bunch of filler... but maybe I will grow to like these songs. and the intro/outro is pretty good.

thoughts on the new record:
the only way for me to accurately describe listening to both the music and lyrics of "assailants" is like reading the conclusion of one of the best books i have ever read.
this is a "final" record, that VERY much (for me) lyrically and sonically plays like a band bidding everyone farewell.
Lydia, you are going to be missed more than you ever know. Honest to God. Love you all.

i think they took the "final album" thing pretty literal.
to me, i feel like "assailants" IS about a "final album". like, that was the theme of it.

either way, i absolutely love it.

An Album about a final album, haha. I do not exactly hate that theme, I just expected SO much more from Lydia.. think about it, these were the people who made amazing songs like Sleep Well, It's In your Blood, Stay Awake, and All I See. And to then hear this? I mean, none of the songs on Assailants are awful, but it's just not very impressive for the most part. Not what I expected from Lydia
