    Hope it's good! Both their last two albums have been alright, but I'd love to hear them hit the highs of Cease To Begin again

    Please be better than Mirage Rock.

    I like the cover. I really hope they can recover from the lackluster 'Mirage Rock' with this one.

    First single from the new album... definitely curious to see how the rest sounds, but I like this song quite a bit.

    Not bad at all. Doesn't initially wow me, but it's not bad

    Umm... Not sure how I feel about this song. I think I like it more than the entire last album and the lyrics are interesting. There just isn't much excitement going on here...

    Pumped for this, I enjoy both new songs more than anything from Mirage Rock.

    Enjoying it, forgot it came out today and was excited to see it on Spotify.

    Keep on the sunny side.

    I'll give this a shot. I didn't care for Mirage Rock, but Infinite Arms had some great songs (Older, Laredo, On My Way Back Home, Evening Kitchen, etc.). I'd be happy with at least that level of quality again.

    Really enjoying this so far, could see it sticking with me for a long time.

    This is my design

    I like this more than Mirage Rock, but it doesn't come near Infinite Arms.

    I love this. Would already put this behind Everything All the Time and Cease to Begin.

    Jason Lytle's influence is strong on this one. "Casual Party" and "In a Drawer" are very Grandaddy-esque.

    In a Drawer is such a great song outside of the chorus that was clearly created while Ben was searching around his house for his keys.

    I think it's regarding his weed stash

    Well that makes it a bit better. Still sounds like a song any of us would sing to ourselves though. But, like I said, the rest of the song is fantastic.

    Edit: Actually, nothing in the lyrics points to it being a weed stash. I knew it wasn't his keys...that was just a joke. But what makes you think it's about his stash? The song seems to be about him reminiscing.
