Didn't grab me on first listen like Wildlife did, but I'm still intrigued. Will continue to spin and hope there's as much great material as that last album. This is definitely more subtle and refined, but I'm still wishing there was a song like "King Park" or "I See Everything"...

Great album. The guitar work is easily some of the best I've ever heard from these guys.

Loving "Hudsonville MI 1956", "Scenes From Highways 1981-2009", "Woman (In Mirror)", "Stay Happy There" and "Woman (Reading)".

Like someone mentioned earlier, the softer songs are easily the highlights.

Just because you don't like a band doesn't mean you have to come in here and bash la dispute. The only reason I brought up Matt Shadows is because I think it's ironic you are criticizing Jordan of being a bad singer

I've seen both La Dispute and Avenged Sevenfold live.
Matt can hold notes incredibly well live and has a fantastic range.
Jordan kept running out of breath, and as it is he barely "sings" at all, he just fucking shouts and yelps half the time.
So no, it's not ironic. Get over the fact that people have a different opinion.

Stating. My. Opinion. Isn't. Bashing.

His phrasing automatically implies an opinion, get the adamantium stick out of your ass. This is the internet, maybe not everyone feels like adding "IMO" all the time or phrasing it in a way other people approve of.

Why would Trebor even listen to this? I don't understand why you would bother listening to a band that you already know you don't like. Unless they drastically changed their sound (and that isn't the case here), there's not really any point to it.

I really enjoy La Dispute but I can understand if some people don't. Everyone seems to love Kanye West and Queens of the Stone Age here, but I don't care for them.

This band doesn't make sense. All the instrumentalists in the band are amazing and inspired, but the singer kills all the awesome vibes with his ranty, "deep & poetic" delivery (most of the stuff he says either doesn't make sense or it's about being a disheartened lover). I loved their earlier stuff but I feel like the terrible vocalist is overshadowing the great musicians in the band. Sad to see them playing for 16-year-old scene girls.

^I don't get why everyone has a problem with the singer. 16-year-old scene girls generally don't like this shit. La Dispute is a far cry from Asking Alexandria and Escape the Fate (which is what 16-year-old scene girls are actually into). Dreyer plays to emotions but not quite the same type of emotions that 16-year-old scene girls gets.

this thread is full of people crying that other people don't like a certain band (i happen to like wildlife, their first album wasn't my thing), hence why i said the LD fanboys are out in full force. that is something you can't dispute. a certain user, TheSupernatural, seems to be the most butthurt here, taking particular offense to treb's views of the album for some reason. his attitude is immature. he should stop caring so much about what other people think, shut the fuck up, and listen to the music.
