Good review dude. Even though I dislike this band you make this EP sound enticing. Much better than your Death Cab review
Haha thank you. I just realized this got posted, I didn't get a PM.

When did you submit this?

Edit:

And good review, but you're kind of all over the place. As well, I couldn't stand this EP, haha, so nice to see someone found something worthwhile in it.
I submitted it..last friday I think. Haha, thanks.

Miles above your DCFC review.


I was thinking of reviewing Downtown Battle Mountain myself
That would be awesome, you totally should.

Definitely better than the Death Cab review but....it doesn't really flow. A good review needs to flow just like any solid essay or novel, but this is just everywhere man. You kind of name raped too, saying the vocalist or guitarists name more than once or twice is overkill. Just revise more, type it and then come back a day or two later and look at it with another set of eyes. Good effort though dude.
Okay, thanks man.

Why is there no mention of Alexisonfire or ATDI? Considering that both of those bands heavily shaped DGD's influence on this record, I would have at least liked to see them in the RIYL section.

Also, lower definition? rly?? they're a lot closer to the layered, noisy mess that was Finch circa SHTS than DGD.

still not a bad review, though...

Good review! With time comes progress. I'm really glad to see everyone here is being so supportive of you as well; awesome! One thing I hate about this website is that everyone is a cynical critical prick. But not in this case. Anyways, this EP is amazing just as you described. It is not DGD's best work musically, but it is by far my favorite and deserves a lot more recognition.

Thank you both. I wanted to include bands that sounded similar and appeal to the same general audience ad DGD in the RIYL, which is why I didn't include ATDI or Alexisonfire. (Even though Alexisonfire appeals to a similar audience and has a similar sound, I'm not all that familiar with them and didn't feel comfortable putting them in there.)

I also think it is not their best work musically, however, I still for some reason enjoy it more than the two full-lengths. I think that the s/t is their best musically.

We really need to make member ratings public so I can see which stupid member on this site gave this album 100%, jesus.
Haha, were you banned for a short period of time?

Yep, about a month I think.
Haha that sucks. It was because of the BMTH thread, right?

Nice review Adam!
I'm yet to check out this band, but your review just might convince me.
Thanks, Broden! You should definitely check them out.
