Can't wait, Hospice was fantastic.
Esperando por el...XD
Didn't thingy talk about how this album was going to sound quite different?
and i've not got my hopes up too high for this new one, but could easily be wrong. Obviously the power of Hospice came from the heavy emotional side. So we can just hope that the band has had a shit, heavy and sad time since Hospice,so plenty to draw on.
...if Will Sheff continues to grow his beard
When I saw 'em live I anticipated a quiet show, and was surprised when they were loud and rockin' and awesome!

good review, except, 'Putting the Dog to Sleep' is probably my favourite song by them yet, don't understand what that was about, other than maybe p4k can't help themselves to throw in a random criticism to bands who aren't quite in their canon
Putting The Dog To Sleep is a really good song, probably my favourite off the album along with 'I Don't Want Love'.
I like it.
I was thoroughly expecting this to be shit compared to Hospice but it plays off beautifully against their debut. Absolutely thoroughly fantastic. I've just listened to it three times in a row, not many albums can make me do that these days
I wasn't sure what to expect from the follow up to Hospice. I didn't even think they'd be comparable. But this... this is something pretty special. It's also still really really emotional (although not as crippingly so as Hospice). Like Hospice, however, I really think that where they touch upon subjects personal to their listeners, the album will really really affect people. I Don't Want Love is really fucking heart-wrenching for me. Corsicana, and partly Putting The Dog To Sleep, are also moments which make me uncomfortable. Rolled Together and Every Night are both just fucking brilliant "I'm-going-to-put-this-on-loud-and-enjoy-every-fucking-second-of-it" type songs. Fucking hell, I mean, if I ever have an uncomfortable and inappropriate break-up/breakdown of a friendship, this album is being played over and over. (More so than it is now, just because I love it.)
Just. Amazing. Stuff.
it's a stunning record, first listen was a bit subdued while getting over the "not hospice" hump, but it's just got better and better from there, its a truly stunning, grown up record, way more subtle than its predecessor but no less emotionally involving, what a great band they are.
PLUS, I'm going to see them in LA in exactly 3 weeks time. What the actual fuck. :D
Really like it, possibly more than Hospice.
I saw them in L.A last month (Dr. Who was there) and they were incredible!
