Jamming this for the first time now, really digging it so far. Reminds me somewhat of Widespread Panic's Ain't Life Grand if it were fronted by Neil Young. "Surrender Under Protest," "Guns of Umpqua," "Ever South," and "What It Means" are stunning.

Three listens in and "Baggage" is my favorite on here now, powerful song and definitely a fitting way to close out the album.

Well I've bought it, I've blasted it in me car and I'm holding off of the 4.5. I can see this as a 5. It's wormed it's way into me boneys :D



Love the inlay card as well. Actually has something to say and it demands the immortal line. PLAY IT LOUD.

Yeah that piece Hood wrote is great. He's one of the smartest men in music today. These guys are the real deal.

I'm a bit obsessed with it at the min. Cheers for giving me the heads up boney old son.



Astrophysics at our fingertips and we're standing at the summit

Some man with a joystick lands a rocket on a comet

We're living in an age where limitations are forgotten

The outer edges move and dazzle us but the core is something rotten.



If that's not a 5 I dunno what is tbh.

You're welcome zak! Any time bud.

Don't sleep on their back catalogue either, Southern Rock Opera, Decoration Day, and The Diety South are absolute essentials. The latter two of those had Jason Isbell on them as a secondary songwriter. He gave them some of their best songs during his brief stint in the band.

And yeah that verse is astounding, agreed. What It Means and Guns of Umpqua are two of the best songs of ever in my reckoning.

I'm listening to this right now, trying ineffectively to study while I nervously watch the election results roll in.

I'm not religious, but Lord help us right now. We need it.

Too soon zak, too soon.

These lyrics are hitting too hard right now:



I'm gonna love you till the big one comes and shakes my bones

And washes us out to sea

Have a blast till the markets crash and smoke and ash

Is left of these beautiful trees

The next morning it will be so lonely they'll have to send somebody around

To pick up the pieces of me

Pick up the pieces of me

Bumped my rating for this, officially my runner-up AOTY now behind Blackstar (though I've only heard 15 or so albums from this year, so that might not be saying much). Several songs grew on me with this listen and I got a warm, fuzzy feeling that this album hadn't given me before, as much as I already liked it.

Just listened to "What It Means" on YouTube after Boney kept pimping this album and holy shit those lyrics were terribad. Guess I should steer clear of this one.
