I feel like this is one of those bands I should like but I just haven't gotten into them. Anyone have a suggestion of where to start?

Listen to Pirates first then Menos and then Beer Commercials and then listen at your own discretion

I definitely dig this album, I couldn't get into OMNI so for me this is definitely a step in the right direction. I'd say it's their most well-rounded release thus far. A bit of the old mixed with a bit of the new. Overall i'd say it's one of my favorite releases by MTB.

This is their blandest release. It just sounds like they ran out if steam.

Surprised at the dislike for this album. I'm loving it, and I didn't care for Omni at all.

5 songs in, this album is the MOST like Menos El Oso IMO, except they tuned down the DL6 pedal and tapping quite a bit in comparison. Still enjoying the shit out of this. :)

In this albums defense (and any album for that matter) I think it's unfair to give such harsh opinions in the instance of an album stream. Most are likely only giving the songs 20 seconds of attention before skipping to the next and writing the album off altogether.
Dustin Kensrue once said (and I'm paraphrasing) 'you need to listen to an album in full, on a night drive down the highway, windows down, to really take it in on the first listen', and I couldn't agree more.
This album deserves a little more than a casual attempt at listening. It has certainly grown on me over the past week.
I also never understood the hate for 'Omni'. To each their own, I suppose.

Halfway through and im loving it. Didnt really enjoy Omni but loved the rest of their material and this feels more like a natural progression from their earlier work

Yeah I don't get why when people stream new Circa or MTB for like a minute they feel they are in any position to pass judgment. IMO

Solid album, but I don't think I'll feel the need to listen to it much in the future, except for maybe Lies and Eyes.

All my old favorite bands aren't doing much for me anymore. It's a weird/cool feeling.

I really dig this album. Then again, I'm in the really weird minority here that likes OMNI better than anything they did before it.

Highly Refined Pirates is a cool jam. Fun songs about drinking and girls.
