    the past is a grotesque animal Supporter

    I think Brave might be my new favorite. The album gets better every listen.

    Brave with that electric guitar was so good.

    Was listening to this album while running errands this morning, and the weather (it’s cold, gloomy, and rainy here today) made it sound even better.

    I'll write you into all of my songs Supporter

    Hard for me to pick a favorite, such a great album (except for jubilee, it’s decent but a clear weak spot imo)

    Jubilee is probably a weak spot yeah. The only part of this album I genuinely don't like is the Moses line(s) in "Radio Cloud" though. Shit's cornball sorry Ruston

    That being said, lots of great lines on here. "Sorry that I didn't take your call / I was busy staring at the wall" is especially brilliant in its simplicity and you know, 2020 vibes

    Yeah, the Moses line is kind of dumb. I somehow like it more when I think about that song as his "Blink-182 song," which I think he described it as on Twitter once.

    Anyway, I think my favorite line is "And I must admit the devil on my shoulder is a master of her words."

    At least I'm not the thing I was before Supporter

    I think those 2 verses might be my favorite of the whole album

    I'm in the basement threatening to score
    You're teary-eyed and running to the door
    All my ups and downs have worn you out by now, I'm sure
    You're teary-eyed and running to the door

    I'm sorry that I didn't take your call
    I've been busy staring at the wall
    The disappointment in your voice would hurt me most of all
    I'm sorry that I didn't take your call

    I actually love that part. It’s hilariously bro-y in a way that I like.

    Do you all take the “staring at the wall” line to be an actual relapse? I go back and forth in my understanding of that line.

    Ah shit, that sucks. Send a picture to their customer service email, hopefully they'll make it right.

    Still waiting on my record, heck of a delay.

    I did, got an automated response saying their customer service is delayed because of all the USPS delays. Fun times

    They should get back to you quick, the delays aren’t that bad.

    Not sure if this is feasible for you, but if you head to your local USPS store they should be able to assist you with making a customer service request. My local folks in Philly are super helpful and do a good job keeping social distancing practices inside the store!
