Holy shit. I remember an advertisement for this album on this website right around the time I joined.



This exactly, but with the album cover on that advertisement.

Man, I feel old.

I remember buying this at Best Buy. The cashier gave me a "aww yeah good band" nod to me as he rung it up.

It's funny that this was the album that really created a rift in Midtown and was one of the reasons for the breakup because Gabe got all controlling and wrote the lion's share of the album and wouldn't let other people's ideas in as much, and yet at the same time it's their Magnum Opus to many, myself included.

This album rules so hard...Its funny that I actually put it on without knowing it turned 10 today

If you are hesitating on buying the vinyl from I Surrender records, don't...it looks and sounds incredible.

I was wondering what they were going to do with the last song since it loops the same part for like 15 minutes but the whole thing is on there...very very cool

I loved Midtown at the time, but Butch Walker's involvement was the whole reason I bought the thing. That was a pretty good summer for music, and I remember listening to this, Letters, and the early Futures leak a LOT that entire summer I turned 21.

Midtown is one of those bands from that era which totally flew under my radar. I don't think I've ever listened to a song from them. Always wanted to know what all that buzz was about... Maybe I'll check out some stuff from them later today.

Never thought this album was very good despite being a big fan of Living Well Is the Best Revenge.

This is by far their best work and still sits well 10 years later. Will be spinning my vinyl copy in honor this evening.

Love this album buy always thought the mastering sucked. The kick drum sounds like he's hitting a rolled up newspaper.
