Gave this album a second chance after hearing it through proper headphones. The intricate guitars playing off one another and the subtle changes in pacing give this album a positive look. The distorted/clean guitars and screeching voices come out much clearly before. Note to self, never listen to full length albums though Mac speakers... So many listening experiences gone to waste.
I really love a lot of the ideas on this album. Specifically the trumpet sections, which is why I bought it. But
some parts really rub me the wrong way. Some of vocal parts really annoy me and take away from the music.
Really only on the track "Hands Are For Helping", it makes me cringe. Maybe I was prepared for ALL THE
EMOTIONS. But overall it's a very pulled together sounding record with a lot of interesting musical ideas and
textures. I will see if it grows on me.
