In keeping with last week's theme, throw in your favorite lyrics.
Juturna or Blue Sky Noise
Blue Sky Noise for sure. Perfect encapsulation of all of their various sounds.
Juturna for me, but BSN as a very close second since some of my favorite Circa Survive songs are on that album. Juturna though has a higher nostalgia feeling for me.
On Letting Go followed closely by Blue Sky Noise
lol the results are certainly skewed in one direction.
It starts out like a seeeeeeeason in reverse
Juturna wins the music battle, OLG the artwork battle. Amulet probably takes 2nd or 3rd in both.
The Amulet has wiggled it’s way to the top for me. It has a ton of range while keeping a throughline vibe, and feels like their most inspired work since the early days. Favorite production on a Circa record as well
Amulet! All musicians going for it on that record and I love it.
On Letting Go by faaaaar.
Most of their albums rank pretty close to being their best for me so this was pretty hard. I'd put Juturna, OLG, Descensus, and The Amulet on a pretty level playing field with BSN and VW just a tad below the rest (even though I still think they're both great records).
Can't believe I almost didn't notice this sticky.
Definitely OLG for me.
On Letting Go, but I'll put Violent Waves in as my (extremely underappreciated) second favorite. Least favorite is easily Descencus.
I need to be better about posting links in the band threads
I don't think they can make a better album than BSN. It's absolutely perfect IMO.
BSN - OLG - Juturna - Amulet - VW - Descensus
Loving the BSN love in here!
BSN and descensus tied
OLG. "Nothing you ever planned on ever turned out the way you planned."
I went with OLG but damn was it a tough pick.
Pretty much any one of them (except for Violent Waves, eff that album) could be my #1 .
I will always defend Violent Waves
Could go with any of the first three but I went with Juturna because it’s what got me into them and will always hold a special place in my heart.
Missed out on this poll. It's The Amulet for me. I wasn't in love with it the first few times I listened, I wanted more of the aggressiveness heard on Descensus, but holy hell it grew on me.
This band is at its best when they are getting as weird and experimental as possible. The Amulet is the product of honing their songwriting skills, particularly melodically, on records like Blue Sky Noise and Descensus (third and second favorite records, respectively) with the balls to the wall weirdness of songs like "House of Leaves".
I, for some reason, haven't spent much time reading all the lyrics on the album, but one that always stands out to me is "I heard you claim to be something like an expert in pain, so let's make believe". My favorite delivery is his falsetto of "a sound like nobody should make" on "Flesh And Bone".
