Borderline blown out?
As long as it doesn't sound like gross nu-metal vocals.

It sounds like AJ ... after someone took a cheese grater on his chords.

Not a deal breaker by any means, but you can definitely tell the difference compared to the past albums.
Haha, guess I'll just have to wait it out then.

I mean, we're talking pretty standard arrangements here. Nothing on the level of what The Graduate were doing within this genre.

I mean those guitar parts ... and early Don't Look Down too (damn did they have talented guitarist) ... I would say were "meticulous" arraignments.
Absolutely. Easily my favorite band in this style of music.

10000000000% agree that they need a new producer. Leavitt helped them develop their sound, now someone else needs to help them diversify. Things are especially monotonous on this album.

Chiming in to add my own love for the Graduate, and to express my sadness that my vinyl copy of Only Every Time somehow acquired a giant scratch right in the middle of "Permanent Tourists," so now I can't listen to the B-side.

Thread's going to be so huge before most of us even get to listen to this album.

Am I the only one who likes Reach for the Sun a lot more than War Paint? I wonder what I'll think of this release
