This is a nice surprise because I didn't know this existed! I thought they just had the self-titled and Please Remain Calm

^ those are the two RFC releases. Self-titled can be found as a free download somewhere on Alter the Press; Please Remain Calm has, to my knowledge, never been a free download. Lens was their only album as a hardcore band; its record label was not a label at all, but in fact Connecticut's best vinyl shop, Redscroll Records.

It's crazy how much better this band has gotten over the years. It's like Hellogoodbye levels of improvement.

So what is this? Is it an old record? B-sides?

First record. Some good jams. If you like their other things you may enjoy but it's definitely really different.

One of my favorite releases from this band. Highly underrated


One of my favorite things on the insert of this record was this:
"Dedicated to anyone who has used punk and hardcore as a means to better themselves and the world around them."

it's pretty weird, it's probably weird for people who have only heard the new stuff to hear this. think about how weird it was for us from CT when they evolved into what they are now from the hardcore band we knew (new stuff is still awesome, just so different!)

This album was still sort of ambitious for its style. And a very good debut all the same.

That dedication has been in the liner notes of their other releases too, right?

Wish I bought this on vinyl before they repressed it and jacked up the price, same with the demo to some extent.

It's also in Please Remain Calm and The Japanese Discography CD. It's not in the s/t (hopefully I didn't miss it)
