1. The more I listen to it, the better it gets.
2. Some emo shit, sure. But I love it. Really cool guitar work with lyrics I’ve loved since high school. Sometimes emo shit doesn’t have to totally suck. It’s like white boy blues: angry, loud and oftentimes misguided. I’ll probably play this for my kids anyway.
3. Eh. 50/50. Needs some Jay-Z in this bitch.
4. Expected more, but I’m not sure why. Their first two albums were hit or miss, too.
5. They play this at work a lot. I love being able to say, “Let’s go out late, drink a lot” and have an excuse. “Pardon me?” “Just the song lyrics, miss. I don’t know you.”
