Funny thing is most of the bands you have listed here as your likes I've found to be really hard to get into! We are just different I guess, I respect that.

back on topic, what are the fans thoughts on this album's place within the rest of their discog after having a year to settle in?

handily superior to high violet
a little notch below the perfect alligator/boxer duo; but has its own personality beyond them

I guess for me music is about strapping on my headphones and being transported somewhere fantastical and exotic, having sounds thrown at me that inspire awe. The National feels like walking down a country lane on an overcast day. Nice enough, but that's something I can do for real

if that makes any sense

haha the Mr. Bungle comparison is just funny! There are really the complete opposites. Speaking of, I really should try and get into them again. It's been so many years. A lot has changed since.

One year later, I say it is fourth best for me. As many people often complain, it lacks that driving track like Apartment story and I find that to be a tiny problem. The other three are perfect!

hm, i'd but this juuuuust below high violet, with alligator being above both and boxer being the best. i really cant rank
gator/HV/this, but this one has maybe 3 tracks i consider skippable whereas gator and HV have 1 or 2. and boxer of
course has none

i'd say graceless is a good contender for "driving track like apartment story"

I almost think the same but you can't really say they are on the same level in that regard. Sea of Love too but still..

Little Faith is the band's most underrated song and Afraid of Everyone is terrific too. Lemonworld and Runaway jam too man! Solid 5/5
