I think it falls after It Hates You and I Am Hollywood for me, but better than SOTP and 90125 (which are both great too). I agree that the lyrics aren't their strongest but they're by no measure bad. Is this his first appearance? I can't say I noticed particularly one way or another, they've always sounded incredibly cohesive as a band so I never really noticed lineup changes.

Now that it's had time to sit, thoughts on Heavy Fruit? My first listen wasn't super loving it but I think it's growing on me - not as varied as I've come to expect from them, but I love the sound, like It Hates You with better production.

Enjoying it a good deal. It wasn't as catchy as It Hates You, though - hopefully the rest of the album will maintain that heavy but catchy balance that has made all of their other albums so great.

Right?! Tied for most anticipated with Trophy Scars. To me, the single sounded like a slightly more radio-friendly, better-produced IHY b-side. I can dig.

Yo, sometime we need to discuss the new He Is Legend song/expectations for their new album. I'm stoked as hell.

I've never listened to them before, but I have heard the name before. I put them on my list of bands to check out. Link me a song?

I've listened to them. I like them, but they haven't clicked with me yet. I've only listened to From Here To Infirmary, This Addiction, and Stupid Kid. I like both of the albums, though I don't remember any song from FHTI (I think I only listened to it once or twice and that was a year ago).

Should I give 'em a stab again?

That's awesome to hear, man (really late, I think)! He's a big influence of mine and I love when other people can come to appreciate his work.

Yeah, the song is just hilarious when it's Schuylar on vocals... the original is good for some context, or if you like that sort of stuff. But the cover... so much love for it.

Oh - well - haha. It must have gone under my radar; interesting. I adore their cover of Fancy, while we're on this topic.

Same, haha. I don't think they've written a song that I haven't liked. The title track on I Am Hollywood is just brutal - probably my favorite song of theirs.

No - Wounded. I'm not sure who wrote the track originally, but it's here.

Personally, I Am Hollywood remains my favorite, but I've loved everything they've done. I'm also curious as to what sound they will adopt this time around - or if they'll keep it the same. Did you check out their recent cover? I can't remember its name but it was part of a big compilation of covers by similarly spastic bands.

Hahaha, yep. Anything that says "We're still doing something" is appealing to me. Did you read their Twitter? Supposedly there's an album in the works, too.
