It's amazing to me that a hardcore band could write such amazing tracks in 6/8 (no kind of home/blood in my eyes). Both of them are stand out tracks on their respective releases. Writing in 6/8 with a hard groove is difficult but they use 6/8 as a way to open up the phrases for their drummer, giving him 6 beats in a measure instead of 4. And they do it without having a cheesy 3/4 pirate gallop. Just awesome. Letters Home is closer to Travels in structure but tones are more like EDSN. EDSN might still be their best release as a whole but I would never say Letters Home disappoints. And the vinyl packaging, like EDSN, is top notch; great colors and the booklet could be a coffee table book if it was hardcover. Shows the band really cares.
