If you think this song sounds like The Graduate, listen to "Every Day Is A New Life". SO Anhedonia! Musically, vocally, it's amazing. This album has been on constant rotation since January for me. I'm stoked for everyone to hear the whole thing!
This album is awesome. As a long time fan, I love every song on it. Lyrically the band hasn't compromised and that makes me a very happy camper. Such great guys as well. Hopefully they find success in this album.
I like the album and find it catchy but I do find some of the songs a lot less memorable than their self-title ep and fluorescent youth. Its good pop rock for what its worth and some songs have good lyrics. Its very warped tour pop rock. It has a few songs that stand out as some of their best but it also contains my least favorite of their work. I am definitely gonna pick the album up as it sounds good but just found fluorescent youth so much better. While this is poppier and some songs more mature it does not have the overall technical presence their earlier work had or as much edge. Sorta reminds me of Cartel with louder guitars and a vocalist with a different distinct sound (not necessarily a bad thing). I will praise the album in terms of production though as it sounds mixed a lot better Fluorescent Youth. Its good and even very good at times but leaves something to be desired and makes you wanna listen to some of their older songs.
The two biggest standouts are "Every Day Is A New Life" and "Skeleton". They are up their with Condition's best work.
