I was kinda hoping you'd stay.
I have always enjoyed this band live, but I was never able to listen to their records....just lacked something in the studio, to me. This is the first record I have fully sunken my teeth into by them and I've been playing it a lot for the last week. The first song is one of my favorite openers I've heard in a while, "Killin' Time" is an outstanding track and the closer is phenomenal. In between there aren't many missteps; although I think they can write a better album, they're definitely stepping closer to breaking through, at least in my mind. I think a lot of kids already have them on this high level, and this record should only reaffirm that, so I'm really happy for the band. Super hard-working fellows.
