I discovered this album in an extremely emotional moment of my life. I was practically accepting suicide, and by the second as I was listening to this, I felt more and more compelled to die. Not from the album itself, but from other things that were happening as I listened to it. Actually, if I have any album to credit with "saving my life" this would be it. After I finished the album I went to the bathroom and cried for 20 minutes. I was 15 minutes late for class. My teacher wasn't happy, and neither was I. For different reasons of course. I continued to listen to this album solely along with Teen Suicide's I Will Be My Own Hell, and developed an extremely strong connection to both.
Don't write this off as just another Midwest 90s-style emo album. Well, it certainly is that, but one of the best in recent memory. The lyrics are only occasionally overbearing in the emotional department but still offer beautifully depressing poetry that offers hope in indirect ways. The music is very diverse and emotive in itself as well. This is a great album from a mysterious band that didn't last long enough.
So 'Sleep Patterns' is an amazing track. The sort of track that makes you think you've possibly found your next 5-star rating. Unfortunately the rest of this EP is average, like so many emo bands these days are.
