By far my favorite so far.
Having heard the previous two singles... I've decided to wait until Friday to hear the record in full.
Good feeling to hear positive views though!
this song is AMAZING!!!!!!!
I'll be waiting for the whole albums as well :)) but I'm excited as hell nonetheless!
Not the easiest thing to do I must admit! At least the new The Hotelier can keep me busy.
I've never been so tempted in all my life... But I can't listen to it. I didn't listen to a single song prior to Beggars release, and that immediate became my favorite album ever.
The only song released so far that I'd consider great, and it's a beast. We'll see how this shakes out.
I can dig it
My favorite album is by far Beggars, and I'm not at all impressed with the songs so far. I really seem to be in a minority when it comes to this, but I was hoping for a more post-rock inspired sounds (kind of like the intro to this one).
Even though the music isn't what I was hoping for, it's not bad at all. But they lyrics, man. The lyrics. It's not at all what I've come to expect from Dustin. They're too straight-forward, borderline generic. I honestly can't believe this is the same guy who wrote songs like Wood & Wire, Daedalus, and Words in the Water.
I feel as though the majority of the people who really like this hold the earlier albums as their favorites. As for myself... The older I've become, the less I've listened to the earlier albums. Nowadays I don't even listen to anytning pre-Vheissu.
All that being said, I'm still hyped about Salt and Shadow.
I think I may be in the minority but I love the simplicity in the lyrics. They definitely aren't generic though.
"stick this pin through a butterfly 'cause I
I like all the pretty colors.
It just fell apart, so I flung it in the fire
to burn with all the others"
lyrics are simple, but so fucking perfect.
I'm in a similar but not quite the same boat. I thought the first two songs were too straight-forward and I didn't enjoy them much. But a post-rock/Beggars meets Water disc with the sick riffs of Major/Minor would be a really great direction, imo
This is the most Dustin Kensrue esque verse Dustin Kensrue has ever written
Good one. 2/3 for me (Didn't like "Black Honey" that much).
It sounds a bit thin and lifeless, but that might be my laptop...
