    Listened to this all the way through today. Yeah it rules but I’m a little disappointed it drops off slightly towards the end. First half is all killer though.

    There's nothing particularly special or mindblowing about this album but I find myself drawn back to it while I'm reading or grading, so it has that going for it

    Same (minus the grading part).

    I will always prefer a grungier Basement. The song Wish exemplifies my favorite style of theirs.

    Guitar tones on this are nice. Nothing truly stuck out to me on first listen, but it's nice and different enough that I can see myself returning to it more than Promise Everything.

    I do wish a song or two had been cut from this. New Coast and Just A Life feel to me like the two weakest tracks on the record and on an album that’s really not all that varied, they come in right at the point where I’m like “okay this is all good but I either need them to throw me a curveball here or bring this thing in for a landing”. Last three songs are solid but by the time I get to them I’m sorta spent.

    There's something a little extra at the end of this album on the vinyl, not sure if anyone else has got theirs yet. I think it would have worked nicely to change the pace near the middle of this album.

    Thanks for the heads up, I started listening to my vinyl copy last night but was super tired so only spun side A. Can't wait to hear this hidden track now

    Ok so I spun the second half of my vinyl copy and holy shit.... I want a whole record from them in that style, at one point all I could hear was like pre-American Idiot Green Day

    Anyone know anything about their next US tour?
  12. mattav152


    No clue on anything tour wise but I'm really hoping they hit a couple stops in New England. I haven't had a chance to see these guys since they played upstairs at the Palladium a couple years back with Ovlov

    If I had to guess, I’d day Spring. No way they wait until next summer.

    I had a spell a couple of days ago where I just listened to "Be Here Now" for two hours straight. "Keepsake" is definitely favorite on this album and maybe of all of Basement. I will agree that it slightly drops off on the b side.

    Given this about 10 listens.
    Think it’s my favorite of theirs all the way thru

    Didn’t expect so many hooks
    With all the JEW comparisons, I feel like I need to dig back in there because I’ve never been that much of a fan.
  17. mattav152


    Personally kinda bummed about this. Was hoping for some headlining dates and not really trying to see them at a casino for $60 minimum on a 30 minute slot. Great opportunity for the band though for sure

    Holy cow, I can't remember the last time a band in this scene got this good of an opportunity. Wow.
