My favorite Gaslight record, potentially my favorite album of the year, and exactly what I was hoping for. Jason and Thomas were right.

this exceeded all expectations. i'm so fucking pumped. I'd list my favorite songs after my first 2 listens, but it'd probably be all of them. I drove like a madman home from work when i heard this was streaming..

First time through it's goddamn awesome. Beats American Slang. And I loved AS.

This is most likely going to be my AOTY. On my first listen alone, each song stood out, or had it's own "personality". I can't really say that for many albums.

Also, the riff at the start of "Keepsake" is SO fucking good.

If you think Sink or Swim is better than this album, you are, quite simply, wrong.

The particular brand of studio gloss on some of these tracks is a little icky to me, the vocals just sound so unnatural. But overall I love this album first listen in. Big F yes to Mulholland Drive, Too Much Blood, Howl, and Mae, Mae, Mae . Still digging 45 too, even though it seriously contains the aforementioned gloss.

By the way, first listen in it's easily one of my top 5 AOTY, so don't take my production complaints too seriously. And I love the echo in the last acoustic track.

I definitely agree with you. The vocals almost sound disconnected with the mix at times.. They really are over produced.

Love the album though, their best songwriting ever.

Favorites, I think, are "Here Comes My Man," "Mae," and "National Anthem," but the whole album is unbelievably solid.

yeah, it's almost like a camera/phone recording someone posted on youtube, but pro shot video quality. Sucks too because I've loved this setlist.
