John L is amazing, love the video too.

Despair is alright, very skippable.

"I hope the Speedway vocalist gets to sing more on this"

Sadly I think he's the one currently on hiatus from the band due to mental health reasons, so he's not actually on this record at all

Could not get into their first record on any level, the vocals are just too off-putting

John L is incredible, the other one is a snoozer. Pre-ordered anyway.
