Exceptional review Thomas, jesus that was an awesome read. way to avoid any cheesy argument over the score haha.
I haven't really gone too deep into my thoughts on the album at the risk of sounding a bit too fan boyish-- but all I can really think to say at this moment is that this is the best record so far by one of my very favorite bands. This is a record I can see sticking with me for years and years as one of my favorites; a record I can't stand to keep all to myself. I want these songs playing in my car, with my friends or family, with the windows rolled down and the sun turned up way too high. This will always be the album I listened to for the first time while I looked out across the shining Tampa skyline at 12 AM on the last night of my freshman year of college--and I know that city will hear these songs often as long as I live in it.
