    I can never tell exactly how I feel about ABIIOR’s sequencing simply bc I think I fucked it up for myself by listening to the singles hundreds of times before the record release, half the songs feel like summer/early fall and the other half feels like winter and that’s hard for me to reconcile.

    Def a fair assessment.

    But I played the hell out of Love Me and UGH before that album came out and I don't skip them anymore, so I'm hoping it's the same story in time for ABI.

    What's everyone's favorite opener?

    Mine by far is the ABI one. Love those vocal effects.

    I never really had that problem with ILIWYS bc UGH! was the only single I listened to all that much before its release and for some reason it never felt out of place on the record.

    as far as openers go, I rank them the same as I rank the records

    Can I say that my favorite opener is Anobrain?

    It’s either that one or Intro/Set3

    Love the run up to If I Believe You, it’s like banger after banger. Then I get bored.

    Tbf I overplayed the shit out of the singles too. It’s a very real problem, exacerbated by what I’d argue personally are excessively long release schedules. And lack of restraint.

    I think my only bad take is the closer on their debut bores me

    I'll write you into all of my songs Supporter

    Best opener is ABI’s

    Agreed. It's good, but kinda ends the debut in a whimper rather than with a bang

    Huge reason I love this band as much as I do is because of their post-rock, ambient influence. I mean, Music For Cars is a direct Brian Eno reference lol. Whatever instrumental track they played at Reading before "Somebody Else" was great.

    Directly before the track fades in when just the box is lit up pink?

    If yes, that's an updated version of HNSCC.

    party over here, i’ll be over there

    I totally get the overplaying of the singles from ABI. That’s why I am restraining from listening to anything until NOACF is out. Sincerity Is Scary ended up being my favorite song on ABI and I am convinced it’s because it’s the only one I didn’t listen to. So I want it as fresh as possible. ABI also def has the best opener. Despite my whining about the mid section of iliwys, this is the best band around.

    S/T is underrated for what it is. I think it gets put into Maroon 5- league cause their follow ups were so strong, but you could tell what they’re doing even back then.
