    Wish they'd write more songs like Deadcrush the slower songs aren't doing much for me.
     
  2. Not sure how I felt about this on first listen. I thought it was more consistent than their other albums - less bullshit, but also less standout moments. Excited to come back to it though.

    This album is honestly very different from where I thought they would go after the last album, and I am glad. Always thought that album 2 was kinda a lesser re-hash of album 1, except a bit less engaging. But, this really goes in new directions and does a ton of new shit for them. That being said, weird ass album, overall definitely a thumbs up though

    I'll see you again in 25 years Prestigious

    I'd put this above their sophomore but not quite as good as debut. Agree with Steve it's kind of all over the place, but the content is still great

    The rivalry is back on

    After listening a few more times, Snare is really bad, a couple of them kind of plod along for a minute or two more than they need to, but there's enough cool stuff that I'm still in

    This is weird, but not weird enough. A "House of the Rising Sun" cover strikes me as a bad choice, would be interested in reading an interview about why they did that.

    yeah. Adeline is still the best song on this album

    Kinda really didn't like this on first listen.

    Like the flutes and strings on Pleader

    There are only a few tracks I really return to here - mostly Deadcrush, Adeline, 3WW. Other than that this album doesn't really stick with me.

    Still excited to see them at Pano in a couple of weeks!

    This Is All Yours is a really great album.

    They tweeted this same thing 6 months before This Is All Yours and 8 months before Relaxer, so probably a new album coming around April-June 2021
