I haven't seen many people talking about this band or their new album, and considering Blake Schwarzenbach (ex-Jawbreaker; ex-Jets to Brazil) has a lot of fans I would like to see people's opinion :)

So, what did you guys thought of the new album?

I agree! Have you listened to the new album or the 7-inch? If so, what's your opinion on them?

I've actually just listened to a lot of kind of random songs here and there, unfortunately. My girlfriend is a big fan of Blake's (Jawbreaker is her favorite band), so I just listen to them with her mostly. I'm having her put the new album in our shared Dropbox folder soon though because of this thread, so when I finally listen to it I'll let you know!

It is interesting that after a decade of decidedly un-Jawbreaker sounding projects Blake pretty much circled back around and started making music that just sounds like what Jawbreaker would probably sound like now if they'd never broken up.

I think this is some of Blake's best guitar work. Mind engrossing lyrics, as usual

Turns out my girlfriend doesn't have their full-length. :(

I just decided to download the first two Jets to Brazil albums instead, since I've only had Perfecting Loneliness since high school and never listened to either of the other two all of the way through before.

Care to elaborate? To be honest, even been a huge Blake Schwarzenbach fanboy, I am somewhat dissapointed with it too. When I first listened to the 7-inch I thought it had some great songs, with great guitarwork and some classic Blake lyricism; I thought the it had a lot of potential. I think the full length lacks the powerful drumming of Adam (sorry, not a big fan of Kevin Mahon), and some more up-tempo songs.

I really like the full length and the 7 inch a lot... only wish they would have tracked "Its a Deathtrip Baby" and "Black Art" which they were playing prior their brief hiatus.
