Still gotta sit with it for a little bit but loving what I've heard so far. Maybe I just didn't notice it on OTIP, but Greg is really hard to understand on some of these songs IMO.

Hmmm... definitely not as good as the last record but it's got some jams. I need to listen to it some more.

Certainly lacks something OTIP had, solid if unspectacular this time around

It's definitely a grower, I could barely get through it the first time. Transient Love is the best song ever

Been said multiple times, but it really is a grower.



Leaves you wanting more for sure.

I could listen to Rented World ten times a day for three months - closely listen - and perhaps tell you what it means at the end, but I’d most likely hate the album by then, and my explanation of what it means would make you hate it too. The solution, it seems then, is to not think at all, but just to listen. And the point of all this is that even though listening seems easy, it isn’t. It’s the first step to falling in love, and anyone who tells you that falling in love is easy is full of shit.

Realized I really like song on this, except I'm not big on The Talk. Love Greg's slower songs like

Heartache and Transient Love.

The slower songs change up the album's pace so much; really gives the album the variety and breathing space it needs. I think it was so interesting to see Greg take on slow, expansive songs whereas on the last album he was known for being the more straight-forward, aggressive guy out of the two frontmen, while Tom has stuff like "The Talk" that's just straight punk rock, kind of distanced from "Burn After Writing" and "Gates" which established him as this emotional-type punk rock writer, though it still comes through on "Bad Things".

Yeah, you can usually hear gregs voice every once in a while on a tom song and vice versa too.
