Batman, for example, and Magellan.
Unquestionably their best-SOUNDING album to date. Songs are growing on me, too.

Such a solid album. For sure gonna be in my top 10. Good review!
Full of good jams but I wish there were a few more aggressive songs..Stoked to see some of these live though! About to order vinyl tonight
Easily the best artwork of 2011 as well

100% agree w/ you, Alex. McTernan did a hell of a job, too.

So amazing. The artwork is similar to something I used to draw on desks.

Excellent review, Drew.
I've only listened to this record a couple of times, but the first two songs smashed me. So good.
Also, this is the best-sounding McTernan record that I've heard in a long time (and I'm usually critical of his work).

So glad that people are enjoying this album, its one of my tops of the year, probably at number 3 right now behind gospel and under soil and dirt.

Wasn't really interested in this but listened on a whim. Holy crap. This record is great.

I agree. Just a stron album all the way through. No filler on this cd.

In the review you reference the guitarist as Nate Morris, yet under the Polar Bear Club are section you call him Matt Norris. Just saying.
