I miss the good old Conor. I know he's just changing, and thats fine. But am I the only one who misses the Conor that sits playing his acoustic guitar and using that lovely voice of his? And what was with that fool in the beginning and the end talking about fascism and love? He really brought it down for me. Also, sci-fi emo? Who the hell dares use a description like that as a compliment? This album was not sci-fi emo, nor was it superb.
Gets points for originality. Some tracks are great lyrically, but those are the ones where the music is at its worst. I definitely like their folk sound better than everything else they do. The only song where everything comes together well is Haile Selassie.
