Yeah....and so is this. Personally I never dug some of that album's filler. I liked it just fine, but felt it detracted a bit from the fluidity. I have them both at a four so either way they're both great records.

This is a good review, though I agree about the summary being a little "out there".

To me its:
1. Brother, sister 5
2. Catch For Us 4.5
3. Ten Stories 4
4. A-->B 4
5. It's all crazy 3.5

i have this, Foxes, and Crazy at a 4.5. Brother Sister is at a 4 for now but i'll probably bump it up soon enough. A to B is a solid 4.

Yeah i definitely like this better than B,S but not by a large margin. Right now i'd say it's second only to Foxes in their discog.

this album isn't their worst, but it's not their best either. I can definitely see myself adding songs off this to my favorites list though.

I only finally checked these guys out recently so I've only heard A->B Life, which I really liked.

Is it necessary for me to finish the rest of the discog before I immerse myself in this?

I'd say at least listen to catch us for foxes or brother sister because A- >B Life is pretty different from the rest of the discography whilst there are elements of CUFF/B,S in this as well as all crazy.

brother, sister is still my favourite through all this. but i adore it's all crazy. i still haven't really been able to get into A+B after all this time which kind of makes me angry with myself

AB seems like La Dispute only not cringe-worthy at times.

I think I'm going to like this band a lot

ab has the best lyrics he ever wrote, even if its just like a sped up pearl jam album. the second half of i never said i was brave is sublime though, and silencer is the best song theyve ever made.

but i mean it sounds like nothing else they ever made

I always liked the lyrics of "The Soviet" best, its very spiritual and Aaron's depiction of human frailty is just mind-blowing.

Silencer's definitely my favourite mwY song, but Catch For Us the Foxes is their most rewarding album imo.

Great review, Robin! I like how you finished what I read from earlier.

"People need to get on board with comparisons that take reading comprehension and analysis to higher than a third grade level."

"Is it just me or was the James Blake reference very easy to understand.

He's not talking about the music, folks."

No shit he's not talking about the music. Was there anyone here who said that he was?
