I would argue that the interludes are the strength of the album. Every song feels fully-realized, like it has room to breathe. That aspect of F&NSD links it to MMHMM as well, particularly through the...

Hard to put a finger on what changed - perhaps production - but Mike's vocals sound markedly improved over Dead Throne and 8:18.

Unfortunately, this isn't the most musically interesting track, as...

I appreciate the overall theme, but the lyrical analogy of this song is a little drawn-out. Some degree of eloquence seems to be sacrificed for the sake of incorporating the idea - social media...

Their live show is still pretty compelling, but my interest in the band has started to wane. They've yet to recapture that perfect balance of polish and grit from the Zombie EP.

Would love to see a covers EP at some point, preferably after new Thrice. Absolutely love how he interprets these songs.

Agreed. Wish that more bands would do this. Insight into the songwriting process is fascinating to me.

Their last two albums have been almost oppressively dark. Strangely, 8:18 felt darker than...

Please let this happen. I've kicked myself so many times for not listening to those bands when that tour first made its rounds.

Looking for Relient K's "Fallen Man" from the Five Score pre-order back in 2007; pretty sure it was a Best Buy exclusive. Thanks.

And yet, not that long. Even though it didn't feature original material, I thought K is for Karaoke was well-executed for what it was. Collapsible Lung, being the first true Relient K album since...

I believe it was said they would double-check shipping addresses due to the delay, so you should be able to change that if necessary.

Saw something on Twitter where Dustin confirmed that TW&TB could be retroactively labeled as The Modern Post, for anyone who's concerned with that sort of thing.

If you have the DITW bonus tracks, I'd appreciate it ("All We Have," "I'd Like to Die," and "Hell or High Water").

Also, looking for "Day One Dark" from Hans Zimmer's Interstellar score. I believe...

I remember Dustin tweeting something about a new Christmas EP in November. Anyone heard more about a release date on that?

If anyone has Anberlin's DITW or New Surrender b-sides, I would love to pick those up before catching their final tour next month.

Looking for Anberlin's DITW/New Surrender b-sides when convenient, if you have them. Hoping to stock up before catching one last farewell date later this fall. Thanks.
