Maybe I should've said that better;

Yes, there's stuff here that they hadn't really done before, but I wouldn't say it's particularly interesting, and some of it feels almost pop-ish, which sure makes it catchier and more accessible and probably fun, but generally makes it feel less interesting and thus with less staying power. And when I say safe, I mean as in relatively lacking in wilder experimentation

They've done atmospheric sludge before, but I feel they were generally more fused with the punk riffing, where as here they are far more obvious (Although, admittedly Coral Blue is really b-u-t-ful)


Pointless was probably too much, yeah, and man I ain't dissin', I really like this album, I love this band and the guys in it, I just don't find this to be a remarkably memorable in the long run

This feels like Converge making seperate songs, instead of an album

True, it's a lot less detached and plays more like just a collection of songs and lacks the flow of Jane Doe

Definitely detached but it makes sense that all the songs are together, at least. At any rate, still top tier Converge.

idr how it sounds as an album because at this point i just always put converge on shuffle but these 'separate songs' are good as fuuuuuuck

title track is top 5 converge
sadness comes home is top 5 sadness tracks
glacial pace is top 5 glacial tracks
coral blue is top 5 great barrier reefs
aimless arrow is top 5 ironies

so much top 5 it's crazy because also this is top 5 converge albums !!
