you know it's a real punk band when they've got a hundred songs with "no future" in the title. think they like the sex pistols a little bit?

fun fact: I got their enormous "the most lamentable tragedy" to fit in a standard Vinyl Styl brand protective record sleeve! half an inch is hanging out the poor stretched thing but w/e.

After five listens, this officially isn't my cup of tea. But after every listen it sounds as fresh as the first time. Also this is really enjoyable to listen on a road with clouds above

This is one of those albums which at first listen seems like nothing much, but on repeated listens grows better and better.

Patrick Stickles merges reality with fantasy in this album. The Civil War serves as a backdrop for something larger. The Monitor is constantly referencing "the enemy" as the Confederates of the Civil War, as well as the conformists of modern society. Listen to this album hard. Move all distractions out of the way. This album is instantly relatable and it is very intense.

Clearly informed by both Conor Oberst's warble and flare for dramatic emotional purges as well as breakneck Dropkick style punk.

Didn't really like this at first but it's kinda growing on me. Small thing that annoys me about this albums is that the vocals don't really match up with the music that well, the music itself is pretty light Alt-Rock but the vocals are very harsh and punk rockish. If the music was a bit more aggressive I would probably like this album a lot more.

EDIT: I've changed my mind this albums is actually very good.
