DGD is way too overrated and they fucking suck

I mean these guys they have more than 6 good songs tho
1Dance Gavin Dance
Downtown Battle Mountain

Debut LP showcasing Johnny Craig’s vocals. Harsh vocals sound tacked on. What may have been a breath of fresh air at the time has not aged so well. Sets the groundwork for future albums 3.0/5
2Dance Gavin Dance
Dance Gavin Dance

Enter Kurt Travis with his best Johnny Craig impression. Harsh vocals from Jon Mess become more prominent. Album benefits from more varied songwriting. Chino Moreno feature 3.0/5
3Dance Gavin Dance

Travis starts to find his place in the band. New harsh vocals from Will Swan. One of their stronger outings 3.4/5
4Dance Gavin Dance
Downtown Battle Mountain II

Johnny Craig and Jon Mess return. Coming off the heels of Emarosa, Johnny Craig proves to be a one trick pony despite laying foundation of this band. DGD tries to recreate magic while short of new ideas. 2.3/5
5Dance Gavin Dance
Acceptance Speech

Enter Tilian Pearson with his worst Johnny Craig impression. Vocal performance doesn’t excuse the cringe lyrics this time around. Band becomes overshadowed by bands like A Lot Like Birds. 1.6/5

Instant Gratification

Tilian improves. Nothing new in terms of sound. Your run of the mill DGD record 2.2/5
7Dance Gavin Dance

Band sounds revitalized. Tilian coming into his own. An album to makes fans forgive their past inconsistencies. A Lot Like Birds fans will be pleased with this record. 3.6/5
8Dance Gavin Dance
Artificial Selection

DGD continue where Mothership left off, maintaining their lineup and consistency as a result. Won’t convince any detractors. Tilian’s vocals start to sound a bit.. raspy? Not as clean 3.4/5
9Dance Gavin Dance

Same old formula starts to run thin, long time fans will be pleased, like always, but others will see this as more of the same from a band that hasn’t deviated enough from what they've been doing for fifteen years 2.8/5
