If you can't see the meaning and meanings behind their songs why listen? Does everything have to be simple and dumbed down to understand? I see lots of people criticizing Life Is Not A Waiting Room. I have heard "fans" and "the band" were disappointed with it. I am stunned by this! The album has depth, meaning, and emotions that are rarely found in bands nowadays. They aren't just a genuine and honest rock band staying consistantly good. They are creating music with meaning. Still Searching has ALOT of meaning and is definitely amazing, but so is L.I.N.A.W.R. and if you can't find it then your just missing out.
I entirely agree. I absolutely loved LINAWR, and I actually think it is possibly their best work. Some of the songs are second-rate, but like Buddy said in an interview, you are supposed to listen to the album as a whole, not just individual songs.
Also I find it really sad that people miss out on the meaning of the songs. While I don't really know the meanings behind their songs, I can easily feel the emotion behind the songs. It's just like Nirvana. Their most popular album was Nevermind, but it didn't have nearly as much meaning as did In Utero.
I have to be honest though. LINAWR is what got me into SF. Mostly Lungs Like Gallows (their best song IMO) but then Garden State, Family Tradition, and Chandelier all brought me in. I like to hear the occasional song from LIEY or FtDoD, but i highly prefer anything past SS.
