5.0 classicLucman | September 23rd 19

A big part of me believes that Reconstruction Site is the best record Samson has ever written but the emotional gut-punch of Left and Leaving cannot be understated. It's a steadily building atomic bomb. You know something is coming but when it does nothing can prepare you for it. That is "Exiles Among You." Thank goodness it settles down for the final few songs. A masterpiece.

5.0 classicDylan620 | September 22nd 16

Sincere, charming, emotionally resonant, immaculately written, some of the best lyrics ever, all wrapped up in a tidy package of indie rock perfection. Absolutely essential.

Sweet, straight-from-the-heart indie rock. I'd definitely recommend this album to any fans of Bright Eyes's I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning or Death Cab for Cutie's Transatlanticism.
