    OTIP made me fall in love with the Menzingers. ATP was the nail in the coffin this is my favorite active band today.

    I say active because ... Gaslight :(

    I was sold on the band when I saw them open for Broadway Calls in 2009. Chamberlain Waits is probably my second fave behind OTIP, but ATP is definitely not far behind and the album that may be looked as the band at their best. I still think the highs from RW are among their best as well and I loved that they got a little weird on that album, which wasn’t what I expected as a follow up to OTIP. For me, CW-ATP is the best four album stretch for any band in the scene along with Gaslight with Sink Or Swim-Handwritten.

    Even though they different, it feels like Gaslight and The Menzingers have a lot in common.

    ATP for me, but OTIP fantastic too. The other three all pretty close together after that, then the first record

    Definitely. I think it’s most off all the imagery and story telling aspects of their songwriting and lyrics.

    Punk rock Bruce Springsteen’s.

    OTIP is still my favourite, but it only narrowly beats ATP. I feel like OTIP is a record for when I feel a little more reflective, and ATP for the happier moments.

    I got into them with OTIP and fell in love with them with ATP

    The closer and closer I get to 30, mixed with almost four years spent with this album, I am close to saying this is up there in my top 3 as favorite album of all time.

    This album came out a couple of weeks after I turned 30, so you better believe that the line "Where are we gonna go now that our 20s are over?" hit me like a ton of bricks the first time I heard it.
     
  10. Love that this got bumped right after I gave it a spin this morning.
