Better? Meh, that's relative.
I think Conversation Piece
is musically more impressive as a whole, especially on vocal melodies and percussion. I love me some Will Swan and Zac Garren, but I really enjoy the whole package that is ALLB. I think Deathstar
are much, much more accessible. All three are great records, which I enjoy quite a bit.
My comment was more aimed at potential and the future. The DGD train has been derailed enough times to where I'm nearly over it, while ALLB is on the upswing, and I have full confidence their next release will destroy everything.
