I was kind of nervous with Dont Panic and New York Minute out, but this gets me way more excited. Sounds like a fun fucking record. Cant wait for this and their tour.

However to be honest Im still disappointed in the quality. Its always been my least favorite thing about their releases. Tones and mix are subpar imo. And theres just a lot of distortion (not guitar distortion). I know they're an upcoming band and dont have a lot of money to get Neal Avron or anything, but the place they recorded at looked pretty legit. I wonder who mixed it.

Edit: But just to reiterate, Loving the music. This band definitely stepped up their writing for their first record. They deserve to get some good recognition from this. Will definitely buy this album

The I Call Fives preview on amazon has that same "internet quality" sound. It is just Amazon and is in no way representative of the actual album quality.
Just compared the two. I respectfully disagree. The quality might not be perfect on that player still, but I still think I Call Fives has a better mix and way better tones for drums, guitar, and vocals (everything) and no obvious distortion.

Postcards sounds fantastic.
Agreed. Im excited for that and Face Value the most. But Riverside, Letting Go, Bad Pennies clips dont have the chorus and can easily seeing those songs being really amazing.
