Juturna's my favorite, and this is a very close second.

I can never finish a full CD. If a song comes on my random playlist I will jam out, but otherwise I never really listen to it. I traded this and Juturna for a Dear Hunter and Explosions in the Sky cd.

With 2nd LP 'On Letting Go', Circa Survive look to retain the dreamy atmospherics of their debut, while infusing their sound with greater melody. To some extent, this logical progression is achieved successfully, with this album carrying greater diversity & hooks. Furthermore, there is more significance placed on greater cohesion between Anthony Green's distinctive vocals & the quintet's musicianship here. While tunes do still bleed into each other a little too much as the LP progresses, this is a satisfying step in the right direction. Recommended Tracks: The Difference Between Medicine and Poison is in the Dose, Living Together, Travel Hymn & Kicking Your Crosses Down.

Simplistic drumming? Are you kidding me? Listen to Mandala and say that his drumming is "simplistic", or the killer The Difference" groove. His chops are killer and his drumming is better than most bands out now.

And drumming isn't always supposed to be extremely advanced and technical, he's just playing to the song, and throwing in some nice rudimentary licks.

Circa's drummer is pretty good. He could definitely be a bit more creative, but I wouldn't say it's simplistic. Definitely not Chad Smith style drumming.

Your Friends Are Gone is one of the best songs I've ever heard. Soft spot for this album and I'm not sure why because everything else tells me most of it isn't that great

Digging: The Dillinger Escape Plan - Calculating Infinity

Steve Clifford is a fucking phenomenal drummer. Really creative if you ask me. He isn't flashy, but he doesn't have to. The groove in Medicine and Poison is hard to play, let alone keep it steady throughout the entire song.

He is a really solid drummer and does some interesting stuff, but I don't think his style is very original.

This is always feels like the most 'Circa Survive' album to me. The opener and closer are probably my favorites of their catalog. Each one is like "We're All Thieves" level.
