I can listen to the whole thing straight through over and over again. It gets better every time.

I dunno there are just so few albums like that anymore.

well it doesn't have the raw intensity and emotion of the first 3 records but it's still very passionate and pissed off, which is all i need in a converge record ha

plus the production is gorgeous (probably Kurt's best job in years, based on what I've heard) and i love the sludgy direction they seem to be going in.

To me, an album has to have some emotional resonance with me to be considered truly great. This has that tie to me. So naturally, it only improves to me.

Aimless Arrow's lyrics definitely resonate with me. I'm not sure of any other lyrics on here, but I'm sure they're also great.

yeah the production is incredible. Love all those short subtle guitar squeals and feedbacks.

i dunno if i'd go that far... I still think Jane Doe is one of the best-sounding abums I've ever heard. the guitar tone has the perfectly consistent crunch and the drums sound completely real and organic. kind of strange since Kurt didn't even produce that one.

They both have great production but I'd still lean towards this album.

I think Jane Doe's production isn't great. You can barely hear the bass on a lot of the tracks and it gets lost in the mix. Or maybe it's just so distorted that I can't even tell it's bass any more. I prefer the production on this album.

You can't hear the bass explicitly like a funk record but you can tell it's there, and you can definitely hear it at certain times or if you listen intently.

The thing about that Jane Doe is that the jump forward in production quality between it and any '90s Converge album was definitely pretty big so the guitars came out a lot more metal than on older albums and it was the last record for Aaron Dalbec to record as rhythm guitarist, so there was a lot more emphasis on it sounding like a five-piece record as opposed to records like this one.

It's only really Petitioning and Crashing though. They made more albums after Jane than before so pre-Jane is just outnumbered.
