Sounds like all midi and keyboard and could have been great if it had guitars or even a full orchestra (maybe). Feels too gimmicky, but I don't hate it completely.
I don't get how to write news articles.
Ehhh, it's decent, vocal spots aren't always used to the best extent but at least the lyrics are improved from Anarchy
Yeah it's better than anarchy which I guess is what I was hoping for.
I'm trying to enjoy this, but the production just seems so off.
Digging: Bon Iver - 22, A Million
title track is better than anything on anarchy though
It does seem better than Anarchy on first listen, but it still isn't anything great.
I look forward to listening to this once and never hearing it again fully, then listening to bits and pieces and hating it still. Just like Anarchy.
Digging: John K. Samson - Winter Wheat
yeah album rules
oddly enough i think judas decapitation and hebrews are the worst tracks, so it's strange that he picked those as singles
Better than Anarchy at least. But let's face it that's not saying much
Digging: Autolux - Future Perfect
Judas Decapitation and the instrumentation especially on the title track are so horrendously awful,
fuck. Haven't gotten to finish the album yet but I really love the first 2 tracks and Push, and the
rest is actually pretty solid. I expected this to be a hilarious trainwreck, so i'm pleasantly
surprised. Fuck Max so fucking hard for naming the super shitty saccharine husband/wife duet The Shape
of Love to Come tho.
Digging: The Antlers - Undersea
yeah john mcclane might be my favorite right now
boyd is also really awesome
Album's much better than Anarchy, but if Bemis wasn't such an unconventional fuck and had used guitars, it would've pumped it from a 3 - 3.5 to a 4.
I need to stop looking forward to Say Anything releases : (
i agree that a lot of what was done with synths and orchestration could have been done with just guitars, but there is some stuff that couldn't have been done any other way
Digging: Jeff Rosenstock - Worry.
i feel like it works well for the most part. gimmicky, sure, but pleasing to the ear so it doesn't really matter
this is surprisingly decent so far. I might even grow to really like it, but idk
I feel like there's going to be a re-release of this with guitars at some point.
i wouldnt be opposed to them doing that like, tomorrow
I like this so far
i'm even more excited to see them at the tampa date now
Did the guitarists quit/get kicked out before they started recording this?
I literally don't see the point in no guitars. Like, it doesn't make a statement of any kind, and it can only weaken their
Still way better than I was expecting though.
yea rules agreed
Anarchy was so bad.. it would be an impressive accomplishment to make two albums like that in a row. this should be okay.
Digging: The Stargazer Lilies - Door To The Sun
