Maybe I'm not ready for this album. Really didn't move me in any way. All the songs sounds the same for me.

Major label graduate albums don't come any more genius than this. Hell, I don't think many albums come like this.

A set of very personal, in-depth lyrics with interesting, multi-layered melodies makes for an extremely accomplished piece of art. None of it fell flat, all of it was consistently great.

A great collection of songs that remind me of a summer afternoon.

Favorite Track: Feeling Yourself Disintegrate

Beautiful and edgy. Better than Yoshimi in my opinion

Wow. Masterpiece. Flowed very smoothly, and there really weren't any tracks I disliked.I think this was better than Yoshimi, and definitely think this album has a spot in my top ten, if not my top 5 of all time. Great album, but it took me three listens to really absorb all of the beauty, and it was worth it. Amazing.

Update: I was really high when I wrote this review but I stick by it.

"Race for the prize (remix)" Begins to play

Ugh, Music that kids listen these days...
