Decided to reread this, having finally listened to the album. Now that I have some added context, the writeup comes across as being really good - even more so than I initially remembered it to be. Also -
marks an incredible departure that will resonate in the halls of post-hardcore and alternative rock for a long, long time.
For some reason I initially thought you said "balls" in that line lol.
