    Catchy song. 17 songs and first song released is placed at #12. Interesting.

    I'm listening with headphones plugged into my computer and it sounds great.
    the drums are definitely more in the background though.

    Would love to hear @Jason Tate thoughts on this one? It's catching me off guard for sure. Not what I expected from this band with Justin now the main guitarist...

    I thought the song/video were pretty good, and I'm not a really devoted fan of the band...

    guitar is infectious

    also the vinyl looks really cool
     
  15. The bass and guitars are fantastic in this song. Reminds me a lot of The Ocean of the Sky EP which is super good. This song is better than basically every song off their last album for sure.

    "As a press release explains, the band recorded the entire LP to tape "as if they were on stage, without a backing track," resulting in a process that was "unique and unlike anything the band has done before"

    explains a lot

    Holy crap 17 tracks that's risky and very surprising. Hope its not quantity over quality. Have yet to listen to this track. The comments have me curious. Haven't really enjoy anything they have done since Artwork.

    That was the direction I wanted them to keep going in, last album was disappointing as a whole.

    I think I already don't miss Quinn based on this one song, not that this is better than their first two albums. But like this a lot.

    this has my attention, 17 songs is quite a shock but i'm really interested to hear this song in the context of the album. it's got a poppy feel but doesn't feel like they are "selling out" as many of the angry youtube/facebook comments are claiming. this sounds much more interesting than their last album. really curious to hear if they experimented a lot on the other tracks, hoping we get a big variety of songs, but also as someone else said, hope its not quantity over quality. i loved vulnerable but not a big fan of imaginary enemy. seems like they are going to take the feel of imaginary enemy but experiment with it, which i'm interested in hearing.

    I'm surprised the used are getting any positive response here. I need to listen to it without the video, because the videos aesthetic is really throwing me off. I'll always give a used record an honest listen.
