Posted by - 02:10 PM on 08/22/12
Socratic's 2005 debut album, Lunch for the Sky, is now available on vinyl, and we're teaming up with Broken Heart Records to give away a copy. Leave a comment in the replies with why you deserve to win, and the best answer will receive a limited edition record. The band will be performing the album in its entirety this Saturday in New Jersey. Read my review of the release here, and pick up a copy here.

Because I'm from NJ and Socratic has long been a staple in my life.

& we have to put my childhood cat down and could use some extra happiness.

Because I still find myself humming "Boy In A Magazine" on a regular basis. Give me this record and I'll probably be humming for the rest of my life.

I still think Funeral Masses is one of the best songs I have ever heard. I listen to that and Lunch For The Sky all of the time. I recently moved away from home to start my first career-oriented job. I've been pretty home sick. This record always reminds me of home so it'd do a great job of cheering me up!

Because I've really been wanting to grab their albums but haven't had a ton of money to spend lately, what with college starting soon.

I suggest if you are in New Jersey this week you should come to the show.

First heard this album in 2006, when I was 14. I was only just getting into a lot of music, and I was just going on a binge buying CDs from Amazon which I'd read were cool on peoples "Listimania" Most of which were titled something awful like "Totally the best list of emo and alternative albums"
The majority of which I had no idea what they would sound like.

Lunch For The Sky was not one of the albums from these lists. I actually bought "Halifax - A Writer's Reference" (A pretty solid EP at the time) this came with a free sampler from Drive Thru. This sampler included "I Don't wear a Coat" by Socratic and it was one of the first songs I ever heard which really made me think "Wow, I need this album now" went and bought it, and for the first time it was due to the strength of a track I had heard and not someone else telling me what to listen to.

Still 7 years on the album is still solid and still receives regular play time.

I preordered Lunch from DTR back in 05, but those punks at the label didn't send me a copy. I was bummed when I realized that months & months later. This would be a nice way to make up for that ;)

Why not?
It's a great album, and a lot of people use vinyl as their main way of listening to music. Every album deserves to be on vinyl.

I should win this because I will actually listen to the album and not frame it or something stupid like that
