I’ve still liked the last few albums, but these two songs are not good
Both songs are splendid
The album’s even worse ...
Sunlight is trash.
Breaking my heart man. I'm pretty surprised there wasn't a news post about the new video, but I wasn't a fan of the song anyway.
It's depressing, Leighton's voice sounds better than ever but they've moved so far away from making music that I want to listen to.
I’m surprised people don’t like the new tracks. They have this dark vibe i thought people wanted and I love the instrumentation. Sound nothing like the cinema.
I feel like I'd have liked that song more without the video
It’s the lyrics that are the issue for me.
Exactly my issue as well. I'd have no issue with the instrumentation but the lyrics are so predictable and nothing like the Lydia of old, which unfortunately I'm going to compare it to forever.
They’d not his most original but I thought they seemed right in line stylistically with his older stuff. Certainly not bad enough to take away from how much I love the piano and vocal melodies.
Does anyone know what happened between the band and Steve? I've never seen a band go downhill so dramatically after one departure. I mean I still like all their albums, but Illuminate is so massively a cut above everything else it's remarkable.
Do you consider it to be better or worse than “Run Wild”? Also, is the rest of it better or worse than the released singles in your opinion?
jeez this album is gonna be awful.
niiice album art
I can't even finish that. This hurts my heart.
I think they’re 3 for 3 on the singles
What in god's fuck happened to this band?
I guess this is what touring with Moose Blood gets you.
"One More Day" came up on my shuffle yesterday. I stared at the windshield and wished I could understand why they'd ever move away from that sound. I know the members are completely different at this point but they should have changed the name if they weren't even going to try to be the same band. I get more irrationally bitter about this with every album they release.
Agreed. Boring as heck.
i've found something to like about everything they've put out. i think this might finally be the record that changes that.
This album was done way before they toured with Moose Blood.
I’ve been listening to Sunlight a lot despite generally trying not to overplay before release day. Every second of that song is infectious and classic leighton.
I like everything this band has done leading up to Liquor, but this is a fucking train wreck of an album, it’s really bad and feels uninspired.
Still want to hear this...can’t believe it’s out without any real interest
