I can't get passed the fake/compressed drums. When will bands learn to record acoustic drums? TDWP did it, and it contributed to their record sounding really good.

I feel like this is a band I would really dig on a second album with different production and just more time together.

I waited forever for this! Album is amazing. Favorite song so far after about 10 plays straight through is "A Clown and His Pipe". I didn't like "Spineless Crow" at first but it grew on me a lot. The only beef I have with this album is that a couple songs have that cutting/slicing/chopping the guitars and vocals to make it sound all glitchy. Every band/producer in the genre is doing it now, so I won't blame Mr. Mizell, I just sorta roll my eyes when I hear it though. Otherwise near perfect album. It really lived up to my expectations.

To be fair, I'm pretty sure he was the one who pioneered that into being a commonplace occurence in this style of music. Although it's a little too often used these days he is quite good at it.

Like others I have been waiting with bated breath for this since they were going to release it as an EP and I'm glad to hear it doesn't disappoint. However, I love the production and I think that Cameron is continuing to refine his production while holding onto his trademark sound.

yeah, hes got pretty good vocals, but his melodies are kind of bland with the exception of a few choruses. seems to stay within the same pocket throughout the cd which makes a lot of the songs blend together. im gonna give it more of a chance for the sole reason that there's barely any bands around in the "scene" with a decent clean vocalist, and even less without much screaming at all
I like most of the melodies. Some are bland, like "This Ain't No Place for Animals", "One Hundred" and "The Sower" has some boring ones here and there. By coal riff I mean how his voice jumps different notes in succession with one syllable. If that's unclear, Christina Aguilera, Jonny Craig, Tyler Carter overuse this technique. Listen to "Antarctica", you'll hear he'll drag out the last syllable of a word. "Before you walk you'll cra-a-a-a-awl... Are held to the grou-ou-ou-ound... through the ni-i-i-ight." Happens throughout a lot of the other songs too.

I think you are right.
Also did you notice on Watchmaker, Cameron used the reverse snare to metallic ding? If I recall correctly, he told you that he would stop using that in another thread here. I actually really don't mind it, just pointing it out haha.

Hahahaha, yeah that was me and he did say that! I'm guessing that that that half of the CD was recorded during the first session and Cameron talked with us between the two sessions (I think there was like a 1/2 year between the two sessions). I've been listening to albums he's done since that forum and it seems that he's been keepng his word.

This would be easier to enjoy if the songwriting was better.

A Clown And His Pipe and One Hundred are standouts for me...great stuff!
Absolutely agree on the two song choices that stuck out the most to me!
