    I got this album yesterday and I've probably listened to it about 6 or 7 times front-to-back since then. This band shows a lot of promise. They're easily the best new-wave British pop-punk band. Everything on here is way better than anything in Neck Deep or Roam's entire catalogues. "Tring Quarry" alone is one of my favorite songs I've heard in a while.

    Looking forward to where they go from here for sure.

    Super excited to check this full thing out. I think they've definitely got some talent. The vocals bother me at times though. He's really hard to understand at times.

    I actually don't mind his voice. It was a bit hard to understand when I first listened to them but I think I've gotten used to it.

    Never heard of this band until this album. Album really surprised me, very solid pop-punk. Only heard a handful of songs but I'm gonna buy the album.

    I quite enjoy this. It seems to have something extra that many other current pop punk bands don't possess.

    I will fully admit I dismissed this band unfairly when I saw them on Kerrang, thought they were little more than a Story So Far rip-off they were only pushing to capitalise on the pop-punk boom. When I checked out Strangers it was more in hope than expectation (and mostly just because of Dan) - but it completely blew me away. It's been a while since we saw pop-punk with this much of an emotional core and certainly not on a debut album.

    I don't think the vocals are quite as strong as the songwriting wants them to be just yet but that just shows how bright this band's future is.

    This has been growing on me a lot. Some of the songs miss for me but a lot of this is great. His voice is growing on me a lot too.

    I really really like this. Is it just me or do the vocals sometimes remind you of older Sum 41?

    I can definitely see that comparison. Hopefully more people start checking this album out. I think a lot of people will be pleasantly surprised. I like the lyrics a lot on this.

    What are the thoughts on the production of this record? Haven't had a chance to dig into it but that's my main worry with it.

    I didn't have a problem with it. It might just be me, but I have a hard time understanding what he's singing. The sound was good though. I thought it was nuanced enough to not have that "wall of sound" feel or whatever.

    Yeah this is actually really good, I was bit of skeptical about their music and expecting another The Story So Far rip off, but they've proved me wrong.

    this is hooky as fuck. i'm super into it this weekend.

    Much better than I anticipated. There's certain moments I don't love just because of the way his voice sounds but overall very solid, better than a lot of new wave pop punk.

    this is seriously great. filled with hooks throughout. the first 5 songs are killer. the chorus on guise of a mother is one of the catchiest things i've heard all year.

    definitely a standout release in recent memory for the genre IMO

    This is basically the best pop-punk release in 2016. By a long way too.

    Strangers, Tring Quarry, Eleven & The Guise of A Mother are my favourites, although there isn't a single bad song on here.

    100% agree. packed with hooks and sing alongs. the guise of a mother is definitely my fav. top 5 for me this year.

    Shout out to the song Pangaea too for being a lot of fun.

    I would've agreed, but then I heard the Direct Hit! album.
