I think it's also worth noting how the themes of the album encompass several levels , each connected ( a family /their house/the Michigan area , where the house is located ) and all the songs are not alone standing entities, but rather referencing each other in one way or other. Great review, great album, can't wait for my vinyl.

agreed - I probably could have written close to 2000 words on this album, but like La Dispute I did a lot of self-editing haha
Agreed, I really like to dissect bands and I really enjoy when there are these subtle strings of ideas that are not apparent at first, but when you can see how they are connected to each other, it's the best thing (when the band makes you think , rather than presents everything one a golden platter) .
As for the people who kinda cling on to the first albums - I think that with La Dispute , more than most other bands, you need to be in the right place to connect to the music. It's easier for most to connect with a common theme of a break up ( as seen in Somewhere Between Vega..) etc, rather than the lyrical content of ROTH, but to each their own.
