These guys are slowly becoming my new favorite band. The new album is great, suprised no one has mentioned "End of a Spark" as a must download track. It's not the BEST track, but it's great.
That's been the song of my summer. I'm leaving for college in two weeks and it feels like the perfect song at the right time.
I will agree in that this record sounds like the band deliberately slowed their songs down just so they wouldn't get pegged as "the band who makes 2 minute songs" and that this record can get boring at times. But I find myself liking about 3/4ths of the record now after a couple more listens. It's that kind of record that gets better with time, although it will never have the same energy and fun as their first record.
