4.0 excellentAdam Thomas STAFF | August 23rd 13

Personally, I think this is by far the best thing they've ever done.

I present a retort to this album's title: Memorable Melodies

4.0 excellentomik1116 | September 2nd 13

A fantastic record by a band that continues to near closer to its ultimate potential. "Lost Your Name" and "Back of Your Head" is a heck of a one-two punch.

5 Bumps | Bump

4.5 superbSatelliteYears | September 4th 13

I haven't been this affected by an album in 2013 other than Daylight's "Jar". I'm getting the chills in just about every track, it's an emotional experience.

4 Bumps | Bump

5.0 classicjacobbd | September 3rd 13

I've spent a lot of time with this record the past day or so. Maybe it just fits where I am at with my life right now, or maybe it's that good, but I haven't felt this connected to a record since Brand New's The Devil and God...

3 Bumps | Bump

4.0 excellentBroFro | September 12th 13

Whoever decided to leave the dude's voice crack in on Parachutes is a fool.

1 Bumps | Bump

3.5 greatAaron | September 1st 13

Really solid but not as many memorable tracks as Separation.

1 Bumps | Bump

2.0 poorjaime curry | April 8th 14

I found this boring in comparison to the last album, I really loved the last album for this band so this was a disappointment for me. Hope better things are to come.

Bump

4.0 excellentcheapcrayon | November 19th 13

I'm really surprised a lot of people were disappointed by this record. While I don't think it's as lyrically memorable/powerful as Separation was, I still think this is their best release. The production makes this an especially great listen every time. The opening of "Parachutes"/"Lost Your Name"/"Back of Your Head" is huge, there's two great singles in "Reflection" and "Tiny Raindrop", and the last track "Enemy" is probably my favorite song this band has ever made.

Bump

4.5 superbTooLateToGoBack | October 15th 13

Distant, hazy, but packed full of emotion. I'm numb, but I still feel it.

Bump

5.0 classicnjdwalton | October 15th 13

This is really kicking my ass these last few weeks listening to this.

Bump

4.5 superbMosh | September 17th 13

Never been a fan of their first album but this was a delight to listen to.

Bump

4.0 excellentWayne H. | September 13th 13

Well fuck. Now I'm not actually sure if I like Separation more than this...

Bump

2.5 averageMike Denison | September 10th 13

Tiny Raindrops is good, but nothing else stood out. And I really wanted to like this. Here's to hoping it grows.

Bump

3.0 goodConsumerOfNut | September 4th 13

This is boring and almost devoid of replay value but it's still better than most of the new bands doing a similar thing.

Bump

4.0 excellentGlassjaw93 | September 3rd 13

Really digging this record, I still think they have some room for growth lyrically but where the production sounded flat on Separation I really think Will Yip nailed it on this album.

Bump

3.0 goodG.M.B. | September 2nd 13

Balance and Composure go for a more straightforward rock oriented sound, and as a result churn out a far less moving album that starts to blend together as it progresses. The Things We Think We're Missing is by no means bad, but it lacks the punch that Separation had.

Bump

3.0 goodTrey Spencer STAFF | August 24th 13

It's not bad and not great. Just a good solid album.
