every outcome's such a comedown
yeah, an 88?
I don't bitch about scores often, but this is honestly at least a 93.
Especially since you reviewed RFTS and gave it a 95 and in this review you say that War Paint is better than RFTS....I must be lost.
ha, lord, forget the score. enjoy the record.

I'm just an artist on a shelf.
I have enjoyed the record. I'm just pointing it out, haha.

wow, talk about being all over the place in this review, i had to stop like 6 times to re-read stuff

lol @ the member ratings being 52%
But great review nonetheless. As my profile picture would imply, I'm excited for this to come out.

I've heard 7 tracks and dear Lord... They've outdone themselves. I agree with this review except for the score. This is easily in my top 5 for the year, but an 88 just doesn't do it justice.

Review was difficult to read but I (think I) understand the main point of it all. Counting the days until I can hear this.

So I take it this is a spoken word album from AJ Perdomo?

haha no one else is mentioned, they deserve credit too!
other than that, good review! I'm soooo excited to hear this.

The entire time I read the review I got the feeling you liked this album, maybe even loved it, but not as much as we all want to love it. And that scares me a little bit. Hell, wanna know how I found out about TDS? A freaking banner ad on this site back in May of 09. I really hope that kind of special relationship keeps on paying me back. haha

I was just going to say that! I wanted to hear how the instrumentals were...Bryan, Cody, nor Spencer were mentioned once. I am so stoked to hear Spencer's drumming on this album because HIPV have always been a huge influence of mine. Don't get me wrong, I wish it was Tyler, and I'm glad he's back. I'm just curious to hear Spencer's take.
Outro for Everyone Left stands out the most as far as Spencer's drumming is concerned. He's so solid on the rest, but he's got some pretty slick fills leading out!

Part of me feels that if this album is made to be looked at within a vaccum, it needs to be the same score as Reach For The Sun, which was a 95%. People may use the current score to imply that Reach For The Sun is better.

Just got a bit more excited to hear this.
