around the same score I would have given it, I was somewhere between 7.5 and 8. nice job, dig this record.
I felt like I wanted to go higher, because I love the release, but there's definitely something that's stopping it from being an elite album. There's another gear this band can hit.

I thought it was crazy that you hadn't reviewed this album yet.

Good review, this is my runner up for AOTY so far right behind Gospel.
Yeah it took me a while. I have a lot on my plate right now, working at Paper + Plastick kinda takes priority over AP.net most of the time. Hopefully I can still keep up a steady output even with school starting, though.

I love the slower style of The Swellers latest, it felt a lot more mature than their debut, and that says a lot since Ups & Downsizing was a pretty mature album.
I loved Ups & Downsizing but I have to agree with the other guy here, the new Swellers record was a little iffy for me. I didn't mind that it was slower....it just seemed the tiniest bit "off" to me.
