    Brother, Sister was their peak but I like most their releases.

    Pale Horses is at the top of their discography for me, but I'm not sure they'll ever write a song I love more than "In a Sweater Poorly Knit." Seeing that performed live with the harp part was mesmerizing.

    Man I wish that tour with BN was hitting the states. The one with thrice in 07 was incredible

    I like this band a lot, but somehow it's never grown into "love" for me. I haven't had that moment where I felt like their music just clicked

    words can't describe how much i love this band. Aaron's songwriting is on a whole nother level
    Ten Stories is one of my all time favs to spin front to back

    I really wish I loved their last three like I loved their first three. They're all great, but I just don't connect to them like I used to. Tie Me Up! Untie Me! is still one of the most important songs of my life.

    i think their last two are some of the strongest material in their catalog. those records flow front to back seamlessly and has both that intensity and melody/catchiness
    i honestly don't return to A-B Life much besides a select few songs. they are absolutely hitting their stride rn

    It took a while, but I strongly feel that TS is up there with Catch and B,S. Just such a great concept album.

    Pale Horses and Ten Stories are my favorites. I just think they're tighter than the others, which I also love

    "See you in the car! Best wishes" -Milhouse Supporter

    My favourite band. I love their entire catalog, and find ranking their albums nearly impossible. The best I can do is put them into "tiers" where the highest is like 9.5-10/10 and the lowest is like 8/10.

    I never listened to this band until Pale Horses came out and I can't believe what I was missing out on!

    Even had to illegally download an album for the first time in ages to listen to Brother, Sister (it's not available to buy or on Spotify etc in the UK)

    For the record, arguably the greatest show of my life was mewithoutYou opening for the Dismemberment Plan in Baltimore 2 or 3 years ago.

    This is probably maybe my favorite band. I put entries 2-6 in their catalogue up against anything a rock band has done in the last 15 years.

    I don't think they'll ever top Brother, Sister for me but Pale Horses is up there. Saw them a couple months ago with Menzingers and they absolutely killed it. Made the Menzingers look boring.

    I saw those but I can't justify buying another since I bought both deluxe editions already. That black and white tho, hnnng
