Are there two different Narsh's on sputnik, or did your profile get wiped?

Thanks! I'd recommend listening with the lyrics, then listen again without. For me, it had an even deeper affect.

No I'm just really high at work and forgot my password to the normal account lmao

And this is another one I accidentally logged into trying passwords, forgot I even made this.

BUT YEAH when this album ended and "a departure" started playing from Wildlife, I got really happy for a change of pace. I understand that some people thought Wildlife was boring, but it was more dense than anything else. Im one of the few that thinks it's an outright classic

And especially compared to this release it's a lot more dynamic and actually holds my attention.

Safer in the forest/love song for poor Michigan, harder harmonies, st. paul, bitter fruit, king park, i see everything, broken jar, bruised bodies, you and i in unison >

But of course I could be talking out of my ass since I've only heard Rooms of the House once so far.

hope this grows on me

Searching for a Pulse/Worth of the World > Wildlife > Somewhere... >> Vancouver

But yeah, the first three are kind of interchangeable depending on taste

Nope



still hoping this album has some hidden qualities I've been missing.

also surprised no one else has mentioned the other recent post-hardcore concept album about a house yet...

Well, its not like La Dispute started making this album in Novembers when ALLB's album came out. It's just a coincidence that this has a similar concept. Whereas No Place was more of the mindset of a angry teenager taking out his angst on the things that happened in his house, this is more adult orientated in its themes of marriage and its demise.

"All of the hype this shit album is getting should be taken over to Taking Back Sunday's new album instead"



oh boy that explains much. thank you for proving your shitty taste for us.

i kind of understand why La Dispute is so hated by some people. It's just the not so common vocals and honest lyrics people are so uncomfortable with. you aren't able to appreciate people who are serious and passionate in what they are doing cause its a fucking pessimistic world we live in but hell why aren't you even trying without bashing every shit you don't understand?

Go listen to your taking back sunday shit cause its the only thing you are able to understand.



To the album: I'm liking this every day a bit more and its no step down from Wildlife, more on par with it imo. The lyrics are the best of their career.

Fan of both their previous lps. I'm not sure what to make of this one...but I know my disappointment is growing.

If you were a huge fan on their debut, and mildly disappointed with Wildlife, then I can see how you won't enjoy this. At least Wildlife was only a mild departure from their debuts original sound, instrumentally. This is almost a complete departure from in. In fact, I can't even think of a song on here that would fit on Somewhere at the Bottom.

Agreed with that sentiment. I can appreciate their willingness to expand their sound. This is a much more subdued affair for

sure. Dreyer's vocals also sound at their best imo, whereas on earlier efforts I understood how they could have been a turnoff

for some.

Don't get me wrong, I fucking love the debuts crazy instrumentals. And I think I would enjoy it now if they kept doing that. But on this album I really, really enjoyed their mellow sounds on tracks like both the "Womans," "35" and "Objects In Space." IMO, they were the best tracks on the album.
