Idk, I feel like they kinda played it too safe for a while. life is not was decent imo. The fire was nothing impressive, although the terrible production killed that album for me.. so I kinda cant judge it too fairly. But these new songs sound amazing!! haven't been this pumped on SF since still searching.
I thought LINAWR was (and currently is) their best record. Awesome tracks and solid production. To go from that to The Fire
is where the dudes really fucked up IMO. The quality was not up to par both on production and the songs themselves. I still like the record but I view it as their weakest. With that said, I am incredibly excited for the new record. I pre ordered it so I dont feel bad for hoping it leaks soon, I want to hear it so bad
