heard this album for the first time and in full on valentines day while I was at work - it took me no more than 2 songs to confirm that this album was going to be really important to me, very few records have hit me as hard as this one did

spot on review

This is one of my new favorite bands. I neglected to check them out in the past for reasons unknown. Holy hell am I in love with their music.

Cool review. I haven't had a chance to check out the lyrics in any great detail yet, so I wasn't aware of the political themes (though emo has always been about making the personal political, after all).

This review is very good, and this album is probably an all-time favorite for me now.

I only listened to the first few tracks a couple days ago and haven't had time to go back and finish it, but I like what I heard.

Holy hell Chris, 9.75? Is this your AOTY right now, or are you going to be giving Drive By Truckers a 10 in a few weeks to be consistent?

Anyway, really terrific review, brother. I need to spend more time with this, but my impressions so far have been positive.

This album absolutely floored me when I listened to it yesterday. It's a mammoth.

Great review, Chris. I think you captured the feeling of the album accurately without leaving out too much or missing too little.

Fantastic review, bud. Haven't heard the record but I'm pretty excited to check it out now.

Fantastic review, very well written. This album is phenomenal; I feel like this could be an iconic album for younger listeners discovering this scene. Something along the lines of what TAYF was for me, it hits that hard.

I like this more than the Truckers record right now.

Remember when you said you had "almost certainly already heard what would be your favorite of 2014" or something like that? Whoops!

Haha yeah even then I kinda knew that probably wouldn't be true though. English Oceans is awesome but not without flaws--perhaps since I'm such a huge fan I hear the little things that could be better more than others. And there's not a single thing on this album I'd change if I could.

And hell this probably won't be my favorite of the year either when all's said and done, who knows. It's only February and it looks like we might finally get a new Wrens record this year!

Yeah I think the exact same thing.
