I haven't listened to the leak, and I'm not impressed by these clips. So sad...

For what it's worth (very little, ha), iTunes has clips up too and they're a minute longer.

Have you even listened to this band...? I honestly think their lyrics are so deep as to fly right over people's heads.

awesome. say anything isn't even on the same level as cursive. cursive is so much better.
If we accept the common argument that SA's music has been in decline since iaRb, I'd say that applies twofold to Cursive and Ugly Organ. Happy Hollow was pretty good, but their last album was just lifeless, and from what I've heard of the upcoming one it has none of what drew me to the band in the past.

That said, in reference to these Say Anything clips, I listened to the 1:30 iTunes ones and am trying hard to stave off disappointment. Besides the ones I've heard already (Burn a Miracle, Say Anything, Admit It Again,) only one or two sound appealing. I hope spending some times with the whole songs changes my opinion. Max has released albums that have disappointed me relative to his earlier work, but certainly never what I'd call a bad album.

I've listened to this record a lot, know all the lyrics, blah blah blah
The best songs are Burn A Miracle, Admit It Again, So Good, Peace Out, Overbiter, Anarchy My Dear.
Say Anything, Night's Song, Of Steel, The Stephen Hawking are all good too.
Worst song is Sheep... should've been cut.

It's the worst album they've done..people keep saying it's a night album but it just sounds unfinished and lazy. I only liked about 4 or 5 songs

And Say Anything's music has not been in decline, the self-titled's songs are better than ...iaRB's songs. It's not as solid as a cohesive whole because of Property not fitting, but I mean... Eloise? Do Better? Death for my Birthday? Those songs are powerhouses

I like the self-titled but I don't know how you can say those songs are better in any way than anything off ...Is a Real Boy.

I don't know, they're just better songs to me, the writing is tighter. The lyrics speak to me more, for one thing. I'm more into "Your life is always the post of something else/Where is the present in the way that you present yourself" than "Rat poison for dinner" and all that nihilistic stuff. The wordplay is there. It's like he gets more aware of his strength as a songwriter over time
