I loved this record. I had high expectations and thankfully they were met. I was somewhat worried after seeing them live - their live show was pretty lackluster. A lot of great tracks on here and it's one that will get better with repeated listens.

And as usual, great review, Jeremy.

I'm glad this was reviewed! I haven't heard the album in its entirety yet, but I've been obsessed with "Abducted" for a couple months now.

The score is such an afterthought when I write my reviews. I understand that there are times where it's not possible to read an entire review, but I encourage it because what's written within a review is of far more substance and importance than an insignificant score. In fact, I'd be delighted if we didn't even have a scoring system so that our readers can form their own opinion based off of our reviews.

I've written reviews on here before, as well. The rating system seems a bit off to me, but it is a good album. Don't get me wrong, good writing for once on AP. I just hate the system.

If you have written album reviews before you should know full well that no rating/scoring system could be universal. This argument cannot come up in every review on this site. It's the reason a lot of music critic websites don't allow comments on reviews.

Very excited to get the full length, Ive had 5 of their songs for a few months now. Go Outside is pure bliss. They're like Sleigh Bell's quiet but always optimistic sibling
