    Haha that’s when we showed up too! I was worried because in Minneapolis they started at like 8. But the balcony was nice, we couldn’t get a good center view but we had a decent one on the side.

    I will not stand for this tall people slander. We want to enjoy shows too. Don’t be short. Problem solved.

    They should start segregating GA sections based on height! Short people front/middle and tall people horseshoe around them

    worst idea ever

    Lol, my favorite thing about being tall is going to shows. It’s the one place you can really notice the benefits

    They were so damn good tonight

    Matty coming out and instantly saying “it’s fuckin’ cold here” was great

    Looks like a new stage/lighting setup too; at least it's different than what we had in Minneapolis

    Yeah, I'm sure they kinda have to improvise with their stage production on some nights, depending on the stage and venue and such...

    I’m comfortable saying ABIIOR is their best album

    so far

    At this point I think it’s safe for me to say I prefer ILIWYS which is tied for my favorite album of all time, and A Brief Inquiry would easily make my top 20 of all time list so yeah

    Hard to disagree with that. ILIWYS is probably my personal favorite due to the cinematic pacing and flow, and the more “widescreen” feeling of the production.

    But lyrically ABIIOR is more “profound” yet universal, especially considering the focus on the positive nature of rehabilitation and mental health. ILIWYS certainly nails it at points, and the level of cynicism really spoke to me when I was going through a period of abusing alcohol. ABIIOR’s lyrics will probably stand the test of time to me though, rather than speak to a specific moment in my life.

    Also, compositionally, some of the songs of ABIIOR are just a cut above anything else they’ve done (I.e. Sincerity, HTD//Petrichor, LIIWMI) that it’s hard for me to argue otherwise.

    In conclusion, this band is pretty ok

    Honestly I prefer Iliwys lyrically by quite a bit. Abiior might have lots of staggering heights but there are a few parts that really don't hit for me

    I’ve never been a huge fan of songs that center around heartbreak, love and etc, and those are the songs on ILIWYS that speak to a lot of people, so I think it comes down to personal preference

    Be My Mistake is my case for why Matty stop writing those types of songs

    ILIWYS is slightly ahead for me, it's just such a well put together album.

    Lyrically a brief inquiry is more consistent but ILIWYS hits just a tad bit harder, probably because of what I was going through when it came out and the meanings I drew from the songs then

    Saw them on Saturday in Rochester Hills, MI. Haven't missed one of their Michigan sets yet. Unbelievable sound & production. However, everyone other than Matty seemed like they were "going through the motions." I get how the middle of a tour can feel. But one of my favorite things about them live was the energy & fun they have on stage. Hope everything is ok internally. Cold weather, could have been just one of those nights.~

    I am trying to come around to Be My Mistake, but I almost always skip it. Otherwise ABIIOR is a perfect album to me.

    this is me tbh

    hate to beat the dead horse on that song but it's the main thing that holds ABIIOR back from that ILIWYS level for me

    (still an absolutely incredible album FWIW)

    I still don't love the closer. It always hurts when an album ends on your least fav song. The self titled has the same problem for me.
