I really like this cd, almost as much as Tiger and The Duke

From what I can remember, the production did seem a bit lacking. I also felt like "The Heraldic Beak..." had one verse too many.

I'll check this out again solely for your review's sake, Drew. Hopefully, I'll be able to shake the "odd-for-the-sake-of-odd"-feeling the first listen gave me this time around.

hmmmm, i'd say this is a good rating to give it. I think i'd give it an 88% because my expectations were pretty low. I highly suggest buying this album ASAP. If you think you know TSOAF, think again cause this record has a totally different sound than any of their other material

lets all go to the magician's b-day
Just because it does not like Paramore's or Cartel's latest records, does not mean it has poor production. I thought the album sounded fine.
Glad to see they are now recording songs again and not sound effects.

This is one of my favorites of the year.

I am not sure why you did not like ...lover the lord has left us, it is a solid release that contains songs that are what the sound of animals fighting were trying to produce at the time... it is definatly one of my all time favorites, and helped change some of my perspetives on art in music
To me this is a much safer release and is kind of a step backwards from musical progression and also a ways away from what the sound of animals fighting is (which to me is guys in the scene taking a huge step out of the box)
Overall nice review and im gonna have to give this a few more listens
btw when you gonna hook us up with a fear before review

Good review, Drew. But I really didn't dig this album.
07:22 AM on 09/22/08
i have to agree. great review, drew, but i haven't gotten into this one yet. maybe a few more listens will get me there.

I love most of the songs, but I'm so sick of the talking.

All that wander are not lost

There's no shame in crymaxing
awesome album but i love lover, the lord has left us... more

to the people who say lover is their favorite, just why? half of the songs aren't even listenable, just random annoying-ness.
