|Fantastic Songs On Disappointing Albums|
Although Breaker is a step backwards from Portraits, Phoenix encapsulates everything that is good about For Today and contains the coolest breakdown I've heard in the last year.
Some Things Never Change
This single drew me in with its sweet dual vocals and excellent bridge, but the album it represents is simply boring.
|3||He Is Legend|
Either They Decorated for Christmas Early or They're All Dead
This song is an excellent showcase for HIL's singer. The rest of the E.P. fails to live up.
|4||A Plea for Purging|
|5||Poison the Well|
Letter Thing is full of energy and off-kilter instrumentation. Experiments elsewhere on Versions don't work out as well.
Is This Real
I was a huge fan of Saosin's self-titled. The sophomore slump only had two or three good songs, this one being the best.
|7||The Spill Canvas|
All Over You
This upbeat, addictive song compelled me to buy No Really, I'm Fine, an album filled with cheesy lyrics and failed hooks.
|Profile pic is legit.|
|#1 YES YES YES|
|You are so badly wrong about 5. Letter Thing is the worst track on the album, and far less energetic than stuff like Prematurito El Baby and Composer Meets Corpse, while some of the more laid back tracks are brilliant. It takes getting used to and you have to look past the production, but the album is great.|
|Composer Meets Corpse is the other song off Versions that I really like. maybe some of the slower songs are worth another listen|
|#3 has a few good gems on it, but that's definitely the best song on there.|
|Read my review for my full opinion, but yeah, definitely give it another go.|
|imo: Origin of Species/God|
|"#3 has a few good gems on it, but that's definitely the best song on there."|
This. You Sound Like a White Boy is a close 2nd from there.
|Breaker is better than Portraits. imo.|
|Breaker has a better ending, and one track (Phoenix) that destroys everything on Portraits. but i still think that Portraits was better overall|
|Yeah all of HiL's 91205 is a really good album.. |
|2 n 3 are awesome and most/all their material is stellar as well|
|i thought versions was a decent album tbh|
