After several listens it's become apparent to me that yeah, Rikki Tikki probably is the worst song here.

But honestly, I bet it's fucking awesome live.

Coming for someone who has been following this band since they released fables from a mayfly, this has been everything I imagined it would be.

simply superb.

It was actually probably one of the highlights live and I can't say I loved it too much on the CD so yeah.

Gyro, I LOVE the fact they they generally stick to normal song structure. It is a GOOD song structure man, if a band is good enough (they are) to pull it off throughout an album (for the most part, there are around 3 songs that dont) by all means they should.

Fair to Midland became my favorite band after the release of this album. I try to not let a band with one album become my favorite, though FtM was in the running from the get go with Fables from the Mayfly.

I'm sort of confused by all the hate on Rikki Tikki Tavi. It's an amazingly original (and hilariously awesome) song. What is it you hate about it? That it has has a bit of an edge to it? That it's completely bi-polar (the reason I love it)? FtM is by no means a metal band, even at their heaviest.

Fair to Midland moves effortlessly between the bleeding edges of mainstream rock and modern metal, without ever crossing into either. As much as I love and will always love Fable, I couldn't be happier with Arrows and Anchors. Well worth the wait gang. Can't wait to see you guys live with this new material.

Though I love the entire album, here are my top 5:

Golden Parachutes
Rikki Tikki Tavi
Short-Haired Tornado
A Loophole in Limbo
The Greener Grass

Great album, great review.
I loved Darroh's vocal and lyrical work, and Brett's drumming in this record.
I'm so curious about what their next album will sound like!
Can't wait for another one

btw: Rikki Tikki Tavi was probably one of the craziest songs I have ever heard.
