    These 2 songs are good but they haven't hit me like the whole Cope and Simple Math CDs did.

    What a way to start the day. Rocking this on the way into work this morning!

    It's a beautiful song. A bit repetitive. Outro is awesome.

    He wrenches on it. He thinks it's his.

    Alright, MO. My anticipation is officially through the roof.

    Love this. Get a strong "Karma Police" vibe from the guitar in the beginning. Anyone else remember "Made a Quite Impressive Noise?" Andy seems to like writing about being hit by cars.

    This is so beautiful. Both songs released have been amazing, so this is now my most anticipated album.

    who told you this room exists?

    If he's hit by a car, you can find him in Heaven. He'll be at the bar.

    Edit: If you have no idea what I'm talking about, you really should be listening to the live RAGC album.

    I'll write you into all of my songs Supporter

    I am absolutely adoring the choruses on these two songs...the simplicity grounds the entire song, which allows for the rest of the song to breathe and grow as it goes on. Fantastic songwriting, and I'm expecting this to be my Harmlessness of the emotionally affecting record that I don't shy away from

    This blew me away, did anyone see the smoke/etched vinyl?! After this song- It's a must pre-order for me!

    I just got into that boat. This song tipped the scales for me.

    Holy shit. That is beautiful and harrowing and inspiring and heartbreaking. It's everything music should be.

    Gonna check this one out soon. The Gold didn't do much for me at all; they said this was the hardest album to write, and I think it showed in that song.

  22. The songs are very subtle in their delivery. I would recommend listening to them both and paying extra attention. It paid off for me when I had the same reaction as you to both tracks.
