I do like this album, but I feel as if it leaves a little to be desired compared to past Manchester albums. I can't help but feel it is a little one dimensional and over-produced. For the most part the songs are there and there are a number of great moments scattered throughout but a lot of the message of the record for me is buried in reverb and studio effects.

Not bad by any means but not close to Andy and company's best work.

My first listen to a Manchester Orchestra album as well, and I really like it. All songs are good, and the transitions from The Alien-The Sunshine-The Grocery are just beautiful. Great album. one of the best of 2017 in my opinion, and very underrated.

This is my first MO album experience and I like it, its IMO one of my favorites for 2017 . It's got some really solid songs in there along with a couple of meh moments as well . I recommend this album & cant wait to explore their back catalogue. Nice one MO !

Really cool album. It's a step in the direction of "Hope" as a opposed to "Cope," which while I prefer the variety of sounds, emotions and dynamics captured in Mean Everything To Nothing and Simple Math, it's still a very interesting album and I also think that following in the quieter direction of Hope is better for the band and fits in better with the late 2010s than the heavier Cope. Tracks 5-7 flow straight from one into the next with the same beat/chord progression as some sort of trilogy and it's awesome. Track 7, The Grocery, brings it to a sort of triumphant finish, and I think it's probably the best song on the album, up there with Lead SD.
