There are some awful songs on here ("Until the Day I Die", "Anthem of Our Dying Day"), but most of the album is really, really good. It has their best song too, "And the Hero Will Drown".

I've seen these guys quite a few times over the last ten years, going back before Page Avenue was released on that Anthony Green Saosin tour, and they have never disappointed -- well except for whatever joke that Weezer cover was on the last tour. Most of their best songs are on albums after Page Avenue, but I definitely can't wait to hit this up. Full album tours are a great idea. (Thanks, Jimmy Eat World!)

Does anyone know anything about the song "Fiji"? I've always wondered what happened to it..

I don't like those two songs, but the rest of the album is awesome.

Seriously. "Falling Down" is awesome, and adding guys from H2O and Youth of Today is just a bonus and killer way to close a record.

"The Unheard Voice" (cut from the retail version for some reason) is a great addition to the album, you should grab if it you don't have it (it belongs after "Dive Right In"). "The Heart of Polka" is a bonus track (recorded in early 2004), and another good one to stick on the album.

I'm really excited to see what they do with "re-imagining" this album.

If I'm not mistaken, the line-up hasn't changed over the past ten years either which is always nice to see.
Accurate, minus a tour or two, I think -- but always the same guys writing, recording, and usually touring.

Philip Sneed is their best live singer, and he isn't even the frontman. Good live band, definitely better than you'd expect. The energy is always there, too.
