    I really dig the new album. I know everything they have done since pales in comparison to their debut full-length, The Rhumb Line but I think Need Your Light is a good effort.

    I saw them live a couple of weeks ago and they were great. As usual their songs sound better live than recorded. It was a great show. Definitely check out their tour if you have the chance.

    Unpopular opinion.... Need Your Light is easily their best album

    Probably a popular opinion....everything after The Orchard is a massive dissapointment.

    The Orchard is top 10 all time for me. I also love The Rhumb Line. Big thumbs down on the direction they went after those albums, for me.

    This Time Of Year is the definition of "Commercial" indie to me. I fully expect to hear that song in a Target commercial with attractive people in bright dress dancing on shopping carts and shit

    I am genuinely shocked people like Need Your Light so much. Other than Suckers, that album did nothing for me.

    Ya'll who like Need Your Light, how do you feel about This Time of Year?

    I'd take "Water" over nearly any song of theirs. I wasn't huge on it at first, but I've come around to it a lot.
