It's a great album, although I do like 'And Then the Hurricane' more.

The 2nd LP from PMtoday sees the Arkansas quartet refine the sound established on their promising debut. The vocals still need work but are on the improve, while this album's concept keeps the album lyrically focused with key refrains emphasized throughout. The strength of 'In Medias Res' however is the delectable guitar work which - along with a tight rhythm section - efficiently handles mutliple tempo switches. If anything, PMtoday don't quite knock any song out of the park here, meaning the LP won't demand you coming back & ends up yet another promising release. Recommended Tracks: People Are Machines, Sad World, Goodbye Blue Monday & A Convenient Literary Device...

This is really line ball for my year-end list. Probably will just miss out.

They improve on some of the things they needed to improve on (namely the high-pitched vocals), but there is still something missing. Really promising band though.

Couldn't agree more. 'People Are Machines' is my fave track on this LP, just ahead of 'Sad World'.

I randomly listened to "Don't Exist" and was really surprised by how catchy it was, definitely going to look into these guys.

While I enjoy the technicality, and they really don't sound like a rise band, this just doesn't seem to have any repeatability...at least the first half. Like..it's good but boring at the same time. Where are the hooks your talking about? The second half is a little better but still...ah maybe it'll grow on me.
