    I remember Marigold from a few years ago live, I think he mentioned that he was writing it for an album or project with his girlfriend at the time (now wife, I think), so I am curious how many songs from that project/album ended up here

    Actually I was wrong, it wasn't Marigold, it was a song called Pot of Gold. Looks like he only ever played it this once, and it never ended up anywhere. Bummer because I like it

    I am very much looking forward to this. Haven't checked out Bummin' yet.

    I hope this sounds nothing like Collapsible Lung and a lot like Forget and Not Slow Down.

    I'm more than happy with it sounding like the SONG "Collapsible Lung" or the opening track, but otherwise yeah I'm ready for a bit more Forget-ish stuff, but honestly just want it to be it's own thing, I'm really into the upbeat/somewhat-folk/summery feeling that I've gotten from this single and Look On Up

    Bummin' sounds like it would be on the album after FANSD

    I didn't like Bummin'. It hurts my mmhmm loving heart to say that.

  13. Bummin' is really good!

    Yeah I did not like Collapsible Lung at all. This song is better than anything on there.

    Bummin' is really fun, very excited for this.

    They low-key have been making music still, but definitely low low low key chill status

    Meh, I didn't like "Bummin" at all. But I'll probably still give this a listen when it comes out

    Bite your tongue, impetuous one! Prestigious

    I'm down for this. Should be good summer listening.

    I honestly enjoy a lot on Collapsible Lung, though obviously FANSD is far and away their best. Also quite enjoy Five Score. Also think the demo version of "Jefferson Aeroplane" is easily a top 5 song of theirs.

    Bummin sounds pretty good. Definitely better the anything on CL.

    Stoked to check this out.

    I know it was at the very end of the album, but all these "better than everything of CL" posts make me sad that no one seems to love this like I do

    It so goooooooood

    I also stand behind Don't Blink very much. Ironically, or not, they are the only two songs that the Matts didn't co-write

    EDIT: Looks like Matt T was the only writer of Diaster as well, my bad. I think Disaster is a great song also. Alright, I just dig the album whatever

    the lyrics for bummin are a bummer. Not up to FANSD standards.

    I'd say 'Don't Blink' is my favourite from that album. Just love that song. I remember hearing it and being unbelievably excited for the album. Sadly that excitement collapsed as quickly as a collapsible lung ;-) There are some good songs but too many in the middle that just weren't what I expected to hear.

    hold on, let me catch my breath Supporter

    Man, I think "Bummin'" is terrific. The hook is so inviting that it's hard to ignore, IMO.

    I like parts of CL, but there are a few very sloppy and oddball filler tracks on there. Definitely has its moments though, like "Don't Blink," "Lost Boy," "When You Were My Baby," and the title track. The rest are all over the place, ranging from "fine, whatever, I guess" to "this is still Relient K?!"

    My general thoughts on Collapsible Lung:

    Very few full songs on the album (outside of "Don't Blink" and the title track) stand out to me. But there are specific aspects of certain songs I really love. The general 80's vibe and the brooding guitar riff in the chorus of "If I Could Take You Home" is awesome. Really like the hook for "Lost Boy," radio friendly as it is. "Disaster" is probably my favorite song from a strictly musical perspective even though I think the lyrics are hideous. "When You Were My Baby" is pleasant, if boring. I also can't deny that the entirety of "Boomerang" is super catchy.

    The rest of the songs could not exist and I would have no problems.
