Loved it. Easily on par with Move Along. Very unique and different stuff from AAR but also some of their best work by far.

Bleed Into My Mind is so different from them but I can't get it out of my head for even a second.

You could say it's bled into your mind.
I could say that. I did not but it is a true statement. That synth line is weird to hear from AAR and I don't normally like more synth in a rock band's music but this is layered just perfectly. It creates moods so well and still showcases the best traits that AAR has. It reminds me of how synth was layered into the new Coldplay album. I just love the diversity and production of this album. I say its on par with Move Along as that was my favorite but it might even beat that out with time to come. Either way I am so glad AAR are back and this album is fantastic. Expectations exceeded.

Also demos are interesting because some songs are more rock and some are more synth or pop.

Wow, this is really good; I'm pleasantly surprised...

BUT disappointed that "Drown Next to Me" doesn't just close out the album. Fantastic closer- instead it's just a bonus track.
I wish Affection closed personally.

Kids In The Street > Move Along > Self-Title > When The World Comes Down

All are really good albums but this is how I see the band atm. I think Kids In The Street is amazing.
