    I've slept on these guys for so long. I don't know how. But I'm listening to "The Earth Sings Mi Fa Mi" and I feel almost dirty thinking how long I've known about this very album and I've not even begun to check it out until now. Incredible stuff.

    I haven't yet. I'm brand new to these guys even though I've known about them for forever.

    Wow, that is a fun discovery then. They're both stellar albums. I'm partial to BTHATS, but I'd guess that, if you're listening for the first time now, BTHATS will come off a little more as a dated "scene" album and TESMFM will feel more contemporary and varied. A new album with Casey (guitarist/vocalist on BTHATS) involved again is my musical holy grail, but it looks increasingly unlikely with each passing year. They didn't even really acknowledge or do anything for the 10-year anniversary of BTHATS, which feels like it has reached a legendary, cult-like status at this point.

    I recently got back into these guys... Between the Heart and the Synapse is a killer album. The Earth Sings Mi Fa Mi is good too, I think it's finally starting to click for me more.

    We're all puppets. We're all marionettes.

    Definitely gonna jam to this on the way to the beach tomorrow.

    Between the Heart and the Synapse is probably my favorite album ever made.

    It's criminal that the lineup in BTHATS only made one record. Even worse is that the band altogether only made two.

    Best TREOS songs (RIP):

    1. The Rival Cycle
    2. Pale Blue Dot
    3. This Armistice
    4. ...Then I Defy You, Stars
    5. The Crop and the Pest
    6. Flee the Factory
    7. The Salesman, the Husband, the Lover
    8. Dead Men Tell No Tales
    9. Wanderers
    10. The Heir of Empty Breath

    Listening to BTH&TS right now. Man do I love this album. None of the bands this band influenced have been able to come at all close to this

    I'm surprised Smoke and Mirrors didn't make as big of an impact as a single. It's such a huge jam

    Unpopular opinion time: Mi Fa Mi is better than BTHATS.

    Just listened to both today...they're...different.

    It's hard to say for me one's better than the other, because they attempt completely different things. And I'd say that Mi Fa Mi is more interesting on the whole, but BTHATS is much better in terms of catchy melodies and sing-alongs.

    Re-listening to both albums a bunch over the last couple days... Mi Fa Mi is definitely my favorite of the two, but both albums are still absolutely incredible of course.

    Been jamming both albums a lot lately and this band is quickly moving up my list of all-time favorites. Honestly I need to give The Dear Hunter more listens, because I LOVE Casey in this band but never got that heavily into TDH.

    Listened to The Rival Cycle today and it reminded me of how fucking sick the instrumental parts of BTHATS are

    Casey was the best at writing songs and making them 'expand,' if that makes sense, often taking catchy (but in no way generic) post-hardcore songs and turning them into an elaborate proggy meltdowns. I remember listening to the album in high school and just letting my mind freely float to the vicious onslaught of guitar and electronic sounds. The outros on that album are truly glorious

    Yeah, I honestly believe that it should consistently be int the conversation for best post hardcore album of all time, for just how cohesive and complete the album is, along with the fact of how timeless it is.

    it took your blood on my blood to believe Supporter

    Just start with the Acts! they are incredible and tell a great story. Act III is probably the most proggy and is about world war 2 pretty cool stuff.

    I feel that act II or VI are the best out of those tho. really love the dear hunter, also migrant is a real solid album too

    Keep the Rubber Side Down Supporter

    I think I'd start with the black EP and then Act 3 if you want sounds that are closer to TREOS.
    They aren't that close, but they are heavier.
