I generally don't like hardcore, but I'm digging this album. So far Dreams in Inertia is by far and away the standout

That's how I feel about all of their recorded music. The tones are nice and chimy, but lack any real girth. Excellent songwriters, however.

I feel like the bass player looks like he doesn't really know what he's doing? Solid band with good writing chops. I saw them live at The Talent Farm (rip) with La Dispute and they were good but...

Original album was lame, anything Radke touches is doomed by association because he's such a shitty person.

Same, who the fuck really cares about font that much anyway. No one cared until it became out of style, and even then it's all contextual. The movement against comic sans is only with regard to when...
