there's no huge concept which apparently makes this boring.

Well stylistically it is very different from most of the Color Spectrum

It just isn't trying to be crazy, and that's the biggest misconception about this release.

was I the only one underwhelmed by TCS? I love some of it, but only about an album's worth. The rest I probably haven't listened to it about two years. Easily a 3-3.5 for me.

Act II is a five though, with III being a 4. This band just keeps going downhill.

i don't see how the color spectrum was trying to be crazy either

the concept was a bit silly, but it's not like the majority of those songs were super experimental or out there, either


It wasn't about the concept, it was that Casey played with so many styles on the release. I mean, Indigo especially.

Agreed. And yeah, I think it's safe to say that-- it seems a lot of people expected this to be wacky, kind of in the vein of TDH's earlier theatrical works.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I found out it was a regular studio album instead of some conceptual thingamajig. I have liked it so far tho.

Xenophanes, I think you're obsessed with telling everyone how average you found this LP. It's okay, though. I find you equally average :]

It's above average.... it's just average for The Dear Hunter.

Lakes, I was told this was gay. And I can say that safely because Toxin.'s not part of this thread.

sweet naivete is so boring. nice sounding piano. but damn. this album definitely takes a big dip after track 7. and if it wasn't for girls i'd say it takes a dip after track 4.

Shame and Whisper are the tracks that standout most to me, still.

i don't think the Color Spectrum concept was silly. It's the reason it's a classic on here when each individual EP is nothing better than a 4.

The Color Spectrum was bat-shit crazy ambitious, and it actually worked.

"when each individual EP is nothing better than a 4."

You 'bout to get raped, son! White, Indigo and Violet were definitely higher than 4's, with Indigo being an absolute classic.

In agreement with Lakes on this one, first 7 tracks are gold. The rest aside from maybe "Let Go" is average. It's not really boring per se, just far less interesting.

Them iTunes bonus tracks are pretty good though.
