I am actually very excited about the album. "Bendy" is one of my personal favorites and I think Drew is right, "Bendy" might be one of their best songs - ever. I absolutely loved Life In Dreamingand their Self-Titled EP, respectively. Though it is too bad the band could not work through the issues, I think this album will serve as a great follow-up and a solid last album, as well.
The album definitely has some flaws, but I still think it is awesome. I know what you mean about the lyrics. But to me it's not the lyrics themself, it's the subject matter of them. It seems like a lot of the songs are about the same thing. Musically I love the album though. It's the only thing I have been listening to for the past few days.
shame they broke up, they were probably the best thing going on in the world of DTR anymore.
oh but hellogoodbye are still making fake computer music for all the 12 year old super sweet 16 girl-fans. thank god. I mean who needs midtown or HIPV or allister or finch when you've got hellogoodbye?
